The Appalling Online Hatred Against The LGBT+ Community

Trans rights, sure, why not?

More than one in every ten incidents involved more than 20 perpetrators. That’s not surprising: key tactics of anti-trans people on social media include dogpiling (multiple people piling on to reply to a post) or mobbing, where a large group of people are directed towards a single target.

You mean people use social media socially? Broadcasting something to the world brings multiple responses?


This all drawn from this survey.

The results, which
are drawn from a survey of 700 LGBT+ people,

Guess what we’re not told? Quite, the prevalence of people disagreeing with people who are not LGBT+. Which is the thing that we need to know of course. After all, it’s only LGBT+ hatred if it’s different. If it turns out that humanity just is naturally disputative and insulting then it’s not specific to this group, is it?

Of course, guess where the money comes from?

This research was funded by the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship
Programme 2014 – 2020 under REC-AG-2017/REC-RRAC-RACI-AG-2017.

Wonder how much it costs to talk to 700 self-selected interviewees?

With cross-dressers and sodomists getting increasingly insistent on the coerced approval of strangers, this reaction isn’t allowed in that case?

Of course it’s only wicked if you criticise them. It’s actually grossly immoral if they don’t go for you.

symptoms, symptoms The increase in reductionist materialist philosophy seems to make any society more prone to reverting to traditional tribal behaviors because there is nothing else in the world view. Marx’s simplification of history to a near eternal battle between haves and have nots is an example. The left, such as it is, is committed to a conformist submissive collection of special interest groups who squabble about spoils in a zero sum gain economy. ie, indistinguishable from any totalitarian state, whether nominally republic or absolute monarchy. This is where the West was once so distinct from other civilisations, where a… Read more »
