I knew they would. Let's not worry about the poisoned food, somebody is talking about gay people and they might be oppressing us!

If you look at things from a scientific perspective, yes, there have always been gay/trans people, and you can explain some of the "more gay" phenomenon by the fact that in this liberal era, more people are coming out of the closet, but does that explain all of it? What about overpopulation pressure, the manner in which children are raised, and their diets?

Back to food: how do people eat in China? I am guessing they eat less processed food than Americans do.

I am guilty of being lazy, and eating lots of junk, but as I get older, I pay more attention to labels, and geez, the crap they put in there...

I almost want to move to the country, start a garden, get some chickens, and buy beef from the Amish, just to be safe.

Be a lot of work though, all that. I'd need a wife to share in some of the work, and she'd have to be the right sort.

It’s hard not to notice it when it’s constantly in your face nowadays when people get upset with LGBT folks. For some reason a beer company who sponsored a trans person has made months long backlash and everyone needs to know how upset the beer community is that trans people exist. Target has been selling Pride merch for years but there’s videos and pictures online of conservatives being mad that a onesie for a baby has colors on it now, and how Targets are getting death threats because of it. Mr Beast apparently has a friend on his show or podcast or whatever he does that is trans and he apparently needs to apologize and dump his friend because a certain section of his fanbase can’t stand that someone he knows is trans.

Our society is becoming more accepting towards LGBT people and with more acceptance comes more people speaking about how they are bisexual or gay or whatever, hence the uptick in more people coming out with their sexuality. The only reason there is any fuss around anything to do with LGBT people is conservatives and religious people in this country (USA, I can’t say for other countries) can’t stop themselves from being offended that LGBT simply exist in the same spaces they do.

Half the stuff the LGBT community does I wouldn’t even know about if sensitive people on the internet didn’t get offended every time a gay/trans/genderqueer person does anything.

Here in the states being hyper focused on sexuality is something that is very popular right now. It’s weird how I wasn’t even the one who brought up sexuality, and yet I’m the one being told I’m focusing on it

This video explains it well...

It comes down to one word. Children.

-------------------

But no, I didn't realise my diet is what made me gay. If only my parents knew that before they fed me.

Yet all the things that people complain about children with the LGBT community never complain about the same thing with straight people. Child pageants, graphic tees with slang terms that are used for comic relief, but usually allude to adult behavior are fine, however just don't do any of that if your LGBT.

Please, I'm so tired of people always hiding behind children in order to run away from taking any responsibility for their own actions and thought processes. It's exactly why YouTube is so messed up because politicians were so scared about children that they passed many laws restricting what YouTube could be allowed to publish on their own website. Even passing laws where YouTubers could be sued for millions if their video wasn't labeled for children if it contains video games that are "meant for children". It's so absurd how much people hide behind children to pass the most ridiculous and extreme forums of laws that exert the most unconstitutional amount of control on people's lives.

-------------------
That video didnít actually explain much, if Iím honest. He talks about how Target should ďleave the kids out of itĒ but leave them out of what? Out of the Pride stuff? I donít think Pride stuff is inherently bad or even seen as Pride. Itís clothes with rainbows on it. I was wearing clothes with rainbows on it as a baby. It wasnít gay then but I guess itís gay now for children? Itís not like clothes make you gay. I wore a purple shirt with a lamb on it as a kid and it didnít make me want to be a shepherd or a lamb haha

As for Dylan and Bud Light I was confused since kids canít drink beer, but thereís a small clip of Dylan saying hi to any gay or trans kids.. which I donít understand is an issue? There are little gay kids out there, or kids who feel theyíre trans. I donít know what that feeling is like so I canít say for certain but thereís a lot of people out there that have come out as trans later on in life and expressed its how they felt for so long, sometimes since they were kids. Kids seeing trans people or gay people doesnít necessarily make them gay. Unless Dylan is running some sort of basement brainwashing experiment with captive kids I donít see the problem. Maybe if parents donít want their kids exposed to Cardi Bís WAP song or excessive gore and violence or trans content creators they should monitor what their kids are doing on the internet.

You bring up an excellent point, kids can't drink beer so how is that protecting children?
