Is There an “Anti-Queer” Climate?

Christian conservatives are responsible for the mass shooting at a gay bar in Orlando because they “created this anti-queer climate,” according to American Civil Liberties Union attorneys.

Agree that the summer climate in Orlando can be pretty oppressive but it’s just as bad for straight people.

Haha, but seriously folks, is there an “anti-queer climate” in America? I don’t see that. Can you think of 10 or 12 recent examples of “anti-queer” behavior that you’ve observed in your own life? Six? One? I can’t.

Quite the opposite: If a bakery doesn’t want to put two men on a wedding cake, it’s a national outrage. If a state doesn’t want penises in women’s bathrooms or locker rooms, it’s a national outrage.

America loves gays. Who in America is more beloved than Ellen and that Doogie Howser kid?

Now if you ask me “Is there an anti-Christian conservative climate in America?” I would say — and I’m neither a Christian nor a conservative — definitely yes.

    Orlando shooter Omar Mateen was an apparent ticking time bomb of self-loathing homosexuality, fundamentalist religious fervor, and testosterone rage. In various forms, a similar volatile mix also exits within some Christian minds.

    Meanwhile, understand the current “anti-Christian conservative climate in America” requires a working knowledge of American political history which most Americans don’t have. However, suffice it to say that “climate” may prevail for about another generation.
