The Difference Between Metropolis And Flyover Country

About weeks ago, I was losing my shit about a lawmaker in Oklahoma who wanted to ban LGBT-friendly counseling to troubled students.

I was very mad. I went on a tirade about Christian (lack of)values. They are truly hurting people and using their seats of power to do it.What should I expect? She’s a conservative, which posits that we will be better off by turning back the clock and revisit a time that never really was. Today’s modern Republicans want nothing more than a militarized authoritarian theocracy.

Well, we got enough problems already with the fight between capitalism and socialism(which are not mutually exclusive, mind you). So you can wait your turn to fuck the American people in the ass.

And there I go again, getting off track. Off the soapbox I go.

I wanted to illustrate the fight over sexual values. There’s this theocratic twat in Okie-homa:

no public school “counselor, therapist, social worker, administrator, teacher or other individual” will be allowed to refer anyone under 18 to any person or organization if the referral “pertain[s] to human sexuality.”

Then we go to New York:

New York state will bar health insurance coverage of therapy aimed at changing the sexual or gender orientation of young people, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Saturday, decrying the practice as “misguided” and “intolerant.”

Top U.S. health officials have long discredited so-called “conversion therapy,” saying attempts to change lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth are unethical and often harmful.

“Conversion therapy is a hateful and fundamentally flawed practice that is counter to everything this state stands for,” Cuomo said in a statement. “We will not allow the misguided and the intolerant to punish LGBT young people for simply being who they are.”

The difference could not be starker.

This is the 70s and early 80s all over again, where they re-closeted gay folk. It’s a crying shame. New York gets it right. Oklahoma, if your’e not on my quarantine list, there you shall go.

 

 

About The Head Seminarian

I might be the nicest person you'll ever meet, but if you don't believe me, that is because I hate you. I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I came to remind you of this, not make it worse. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. If you have a bad memory, you will forget this. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
