Minority Sweepstakes

A recent Gallup phone poll of 120,000 US adults reveals that 3.3% of the men identified themselves as "gay, bisexual, or transgender." So just on a wild guess about the numbers of bisexual or transgender respondents, I'm gonna say that 3% of American men are gay, at most.

And the number of them likely to get married when such legalities are available are a very tiny minority of that figure.

A classic example of this culture's obsession with the issues of a very small minority group. If you are willing to unravel a fundamental institution like marriage --with high-risk unintended outcomes-- what does that say about your civilizational sanity?

Like making it taboo to wish people Merry Christmas, in an almost 80% Christian country, lest those without "Christian privilege" feel un-included...

It's sick, really. Unhealthy and imbalanced, a kind of codependence of the majority. Protecting the basic rights of minorities, keeping them from actual harm, is a good idea. Kowtowing to their every tantrum is not. But it's the inevitable outcome of Burnham's Law:
"The liberal, and the group, nation, or civilization infected by liberal doctrine and values, are morally disarmed before those whom the liberal regards as less well off than himself."
