A frequent contributor* who has far more familiarity with the insane regions of liberalism than I, sends this link from a site called Everyday Feminism (which seems to be the precise opposite) entitled Homonormativity 101. By turns irritating and amusing, it becomes eventually just sad. These are people for whom nothing can ever go right, trapped in resentment against all the others, who they believe are carefree and uncaring. There is a very CS Lewis Screwtape/Great Divorce/Last Battle air to this, with the doors of Hell all locked from the inside.
This came within the context of our discussion of what has happened to Jonathan Chait since he wrote his recent essay crying "enough already" to the continual faultfinders farther left than he is. Her observation:
"Either way, I do wonder if the left is going to eat itself rather soon.
From what I hear from many of my liberal friends who work for various
non-profits, it's getting rough. Even (relative redacted) said that (prominent liberal employer) was
taking weird heat for what it didn't address. All sorts of "well if you
really want to help poor people, you have to actually do LGBT rights
stuff, because many homeless teens are LGBT." But I just saw a friend
post an article about how white and attractive gay men were "silencing"
women and people of color by being front and center in that
movement....so it's not like going there helps. It's all kind of the
intersectionality issue I've been so annoyed with. Basically it's lots
of people proclaiming that you're not doing everything simultaneously.
Oh, and yelling about everything on Twitter = addressing it all.
Working to deeply/meaningfully address anything = look at all the things
you're not doing!!!"
