The New Calvinism

Since this month is Pride Month, when every one is expected to celebrate all things LGBT or else be publicly shamed as a vile, hateful bigot, who probably pulled wings off butterflies as a kid, I might as well post this again as a friendly reminder that bigotry is unavoidable:

To affirm the identities of gays and Lesbians, one must accept the concept of sexual orientation, which assumes that physiological sex is the basis of man- and womanhood, and yet it is precisely this assumption that the trans identity flatly denies. Thus, affirmation of the gay and Lesbian identities entails the denial of the trans identity, and affirmation of the trans identity requires making complete and utter nonsense of sexual orientation and by extension the denial of the gay and Lesbian identities. Or, in other words, affirmation of the gay and Lesbian identities requires transphobia, and affirmation of the trans identity requires homophobia. The LGBT Alliance has made it logically impossible to avoid bigotry. It is the New Calvinism. You are a bigot if you do, and a bigot if you don't.
