The world has been bashing a 14-year-old with his own radio show for the past few days, and that’s tragic, because he’s messed up enough to begin with.
I remember a time, way, way back, when we weren’t afraid. A time when everyone was safe, was happy. When I look outside today, all I can think about is how far we’ve fallen as a society.
I don’t think LGBT rights advocates are helping their cause when they claim that people are born with their sexual orientations and gender identities. That may yet turn out to be true, but I don’t think enough is known about either one’s causal structure for us to be able to justifiably make such claims, and more importantly, that really shouldn’t be relevant.
