Skip to comments.A Homophobic Nightmare (But the dream turned out to be true!!)
Posted on 04/30/2013 12:24:02 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
I had a disturbing dream last night. I guess you could call it a homophobic nightmare. The fact is, wherever I turned in the dream, from McDonalds to ESPN, charges of homophobia and transphobia were flying.
First I dreamed that I was sitting at McDonalds with our two granddaughters, aged 12 and 6, and they needed to use the bathroom. Go ahead kids, I said. I can see you from here.
Off they went, under my watchful eyes, the older girl holding the younger girls hand, until they disappeared into the ladies room. But seconds later, they came running out, shocked.
Grandpa, theres a man wearing a dress in there!
Stunned, I went to talk to the manager, but he informed me that this was the official policy of the franchise, pulling out a document that read, We respect the rights of all customers and employees. We believe all people must have access to safe and dignified bathroom facilities regardless of their gender identity or expression. . . . Employees and customers may use any restroom that corresponds with and is based upon the gender identity they publicly and exclusively assert or express.
When I asked him how this new policy respected the rights of my granddaughters to have access to safe and dignified bathroom facilities, he said I sounded homophobic (actually, transphobic was the word he used.)
Still stunned, I explained to the girls that my heart went out to this man, who was obviously very confused, and that we should pray for him. Then we headed back home where some of the neighborhood kids were having an animated discussion. Some of the older ones perhaps high school age were really passionate, so I asked them what they were talking about.
Our school is so mean, one of them said. Theres a really cool guy who was born a girl and ran for Prom King, but our principal said he could only run for Prom Queen even though hes been a girl for one whole year!
Our principal is so homophobic! another student opined. You mean transphobic, yet another student explained.
My mind was becoming numb. Yes, I cared about this young person, but what was the message for the other kids? And what were my grandkids thinking?
At that point my wife called our girls inside for dinner, and I went straight to my computer to check out the story. Was it really true? Sure enough, it was, and the ACLU was taking up the offended students cause.
Time for a break! I thought to myself but its not because I dislike LGBT people. In fact, when I was just 5 ½ years old, my first music teacher was an openly gay man, and he would come to our house to give lessons to my sister and me, often accompanied by his partner. And both of them would then join us for dinner.
So, I grew up without a hint of homophobia, and, more importantly, as a follower of Jesus, it is second nature for me to treat everyone with dignity and respect, regardless of our differences. Its just that I didnt expect my granddaughters to encounter a man in the ladies room at McDonalds, nor did I expect a girl wanting to be Prom King to be the topic of discussion among the neighborhood kids.
Getting back to the dream, as I was researching the Prom King story, I spotted a link on BBC News about Richard OBrien, writer of the hit musical The Rocky Horror Show. According to the headline, he now described himself as 70% man.
What in the world? I thought to myself.
So I clicked on the link to the article, which contained a totally unexpected, really sad picture. (If you think Im exaggerating, go to the article.)
According to the story, a decade ago, he started taking the female hormone oestrogen - and is happy with the results. . . . He has also developed small breasts. But O'Brien is not intending to go further and have sex reassignment surgery.
Enough with this! I said to myself.
To be sure, I felt nothing but pity for this poor man, even if that makes me homophobic (or, transphobic) in some peoples eyes, but I was determined to change subjects, so I went over to the ESPN home page, only to find that the lead story was about . . . homosexuality. Who would be the first gay athlete to come out? And there was another article on Magic Johnsons gay son, and another article on the top female college basketball player, who was also openly gay.
Cant I just enjoy sports for a few minutes without homosexuality coming up again?
So I decided to go to another sports website, but there was breaking news there too: Jason Collins had just come out as the first openly gay NBA player.
Yes, I care about him as an individual too, but I had to wonder: Is homosexuality the biggest sports story out there?
So I turned on the TV to catch up on the latest scores, except the subject was not the NBA playoffs or the NFL draft. Instead, sports pundits were ganging up on ESPN reporter Chris Broussard who, when asked his opinion as a Christian about Jason Collins claim to be a practicing homosexual Christian, gave a straightforward Christian answer. How homophobic! everyone cried out.
And then I came to a startling realization. This was not a dream after all. I was awake the whole time.
This was a slice of America, April, 2013. Who can imagine what April, 2014 will look like?
We are experiencing the Overton Window. The idea, which started in the ‘60’s was for every range of sexual freedom imaginable. But you can’t achieve that, so you start small. Gay acceptance. Then, gay marriage. Then, polygamy. Then, bestiality. Pederasty. No moral standards whatsoever. We’re just past step 2. I’m afraid there’s no going back. All you can do is educate the children you can reach so they understand what’s happening and what normal really is.
I don’t have a problem with these sick freaks until they start pushing their sickness on me and my kids and my Grandchildren.
Men do not belong in the Ladies room.
If they have a dick , they are men, It’s that simple.
If they are Transgendered mutilated freaks, then they can go in.
Why can’t we go anywhere, read any magazine, watch the news (or now sports), just watch TV, go to the movies, or just exist without having this gay agenda shoved down our throats? A few weeks ago, I went to the movies with my son and his family. We went to a children’s matinee, but had to wait in line with people waiting for other movies. There were two very flamboyant trannies flouncing around near us. My DIL and I naturally tried to get where my granddaughter wouldn’t be subjected to them, but to no avail...and this is in Texas! Makes me want to puke.
I’m going to have to start keeping a barf bucket next to my computer.
I got to thinking.
What should be done is for women to leave the room and wait outside until the freak leaves and stare the a-hole down when he is on the way out.
Let him know you think he is a sick freak. Don’t worry about being called a Homophile. If they do call you that tell them better a homophile than a sick freak.
Was the posting of the picture absolutely necessary?
*IF* homosexuals are in the number they say they are (6%), then why is it so public? Because the agenda is to destroy “what God had brought together”.
And, before anyone complains, I equate homosexuality with shacking up, and just like the ESPN commentator, any sex outside of MARRIAGE is sin. Period. And sin, whether sexual, lying, theft, or murder, is the same - sin.
I’d say it’s even simpler than that.
It’s like this - you buy a $1000 caprice classic. You put $500 20” spinners on it. You put $300 low profile tires on those rims. You put in a $2500 thumpin’ stereo system. You put in tinted bullet proof glass. You put a custom paint job on it.
You know what you’re left with?
A $1000 caprice classic.
XX = female
XY - male
You can change the outside, add floors, a paint job even, but XX = female, and XY = male.
Way past time for them to put their sex lives back in the closet where the Hetros have kept it all along. Your sex life belongs at home, not acted out in public.
Unless you are an animal instead of a man.
Where is the puke corner?
OK. It’s time for me to confess. I’m a male lesbian.Please don’t hate me.
I knew a guy in college who seemed to be gay. He was not very masculine looking at a time when Charles Bronson, Charlton Hesston and Humphrey Bogart were icons. But he had women hanging off him all the time. Finally, I asked him about the women. He laughed. I swish a bit and put on a show and next thing you know they’re trying to convert me. Works almost every time. I never spend a Friday or Saturday night alone. And, no, I’m not interested in men. Notice I only do it when women are around.
He was a particular kind of predator who ran until he was caught, which happened all the time. The only way this might reverse is if it becomes common that predators adopt the gay coloration so they can attack women in the restroom. Then, a few lawsuits and companies may back off. But it will take a bigger threat of financial loss than the threat of being overwhelmed by the gay Nazis.
Homophobic? Yup. Guilty as charged. And Islamophobic, Commiephobic, abortophobic, demophobic, FUBOphobic. It’s a God-given unalienable right to be phobic regarding any sneaky, underhanded, dishonest attempt by the enemy within to destroy the final remnants of our constitution, moral society and liberty.
And I discriminate equally against all perversions, corruptions, false gods, false prophets, false religions, leftists, collectivists, Marxists, socialists, fascists, Islamofascists, communists, anarchists, atheists, abortionists, homosexualists, liberals, RINOs and demoncrats. But I repeat myself.
Discrimination is a God-given unalienable right! And it’s just as right to be discriminating as it is for leftists to be offended! Oh, the horrors of discrimination.
In their hearts, discriminating people everywhere discriminate.
Big government be damned!
Homosexuality is a sinful and self-destructive behavioral decease. It’s victims should fear it, just as they should rightly fear any other deceased.
Let us not be shy about pointing out the self-destructive nature of this disease inhibiting the biologically essencal process of procreation.
Ultimately if Marriage is to ever be restore it must be focused upon that process and the solid family units which exist to protect it.

The guy has a point, many women are known as fag hags. Elizabeth Taylor was a famous one, Just loved hanging around with fruits.
Many women feel safe around gay men they feel they can be friendly without having a sexual thing get in the way.
I have noticed it many times, women get along great with fags.
Amen Brother , you got that right.
......”and the solid family units which exist to protect it.”.....
Where are they? The family unit today is all but fractured for the most part. Devoted families are in the minority...and they are on shaky ground.
“I have noticed it many times, women get along great with fags.”
Yeah. I hadn’t thought of this in decades. But he seemed non-sexual and my conclusion was that women felt safe; so safe that they could be aggressive. And, after all, if he’s gay it’s not like he’s going to try to be my boy friend! Whatever it was, he had it down to a 95% foolproof routine.
The "logic" I hear from liberals these days goes something like this:
"Social Science is a real science, just like biology. Social Science proves that genes don't determine gender. The person's "identity" is what determines gender."
Naturally, these same people complain that Republicans don't believe in science because they don't go for "global warming" theories.
I absolutely dread what’s in our future.
“Where are they? The family unit today is all but fractured for the most part. Devoted families are in the minority...and they are on shaky ground.”
I agree this is why marriage today dead among most of our population. But we can and must bring it back, and to do that we will have to ‘reinvent’(reintroduce) it, perhaps under a different name (free from the corruption attributed to the old now defunct one).
A new practical understanding of this union will have to be established in firm association with its name, and as famly members & elders we shall shift our support and recognition to this meaningful union in place of the currently meaningless one.
Let’s just rename it with a snazzy new name and the libs will buy it. Lifelong sacred hookup?
The gay and trans population is tiny. The fact that so much time is spent talking about them and their problems is amazing to me.
On the issue of Jason Collins, gay basketball player. The point about locker rooms was brought up today by Geraldo on his radio show. His guest, a gay sports announcer, said that although he was sexually attracted to males when he went into the locker rooms he was in “professional mode” and he never did so much as take a peek. While this may be true I think that he missed the point of Geraldo’s question which was basically: if a gay man can go into a male locker room than why can’t a straight man go into a female one? He had no answer to the question.
Here’s my solution: facilities should have a third bathroom for gay men, gay women and gay or straight transgenders. It makes perfect sense. The gay guys will NOT be looking at the lesbians. The lesbians will likewise NOT be looking at the gay men. The transgenders, who are by definition “in between” genders should share facilities with gays and lesbians because the are in transition. Straight men and women are not in transition, they have already settled on their sexual orientation and their gender. Therefore it is unfair to them to group them with individuals who are not “settled” because they will not know the true orientation of the trans person based upon physical attributes or professed preference in regards to orientation.
This arrangement would put the issue to bed. But, something tells me that it might not go over with some on the gay-trans side of the equation. But why?
The problem is that traditional groupings of men and women are based upon normal physical endowments and sexual preferences. The reason that a bunch of guys can be naked around each other is because they do NOT desire males sexually. Vice versa for the women. When you start to define sexuality on alternates to this basic, natural arrangement you inevitably open a can of worms.
Think about it this way. It is unfair to straight males to have gay males using the same locker rooms. But at the same time putting all gay males into a separate room is the same as putting straight males and straight females into a shared room, based upon the sexual attraction. Ditto for lesbians. So you have a problem as to where to put them. This is why my idea for Homo-Trans bathrooms makes sense because the presence of the opposite GENDER combined with the opposite ORIENTATION would basically cancel everything out with the Trans individuals bridging the gap between the two diametrically opposed camps.
The best way to get out in front of this issue would be to start a campaign by hetero people to force facilities to create these 3rd type bathrooms/locker rooms. They would not have to be as large as hetero rooms because as a percentage of the population gay/trans individuals represent a small proportion... maybe 5% total. The average man or woman on the street would find it hard to argue AGAINST having separate rooms based upon existing gender and orientation differentiations: i.e. Men and Women bathrooms and locker rooms. For instance “we already divide genders and orientations” so why would you be against further divisions that seek to address additional differences which everybody accepts as being real and legitimate... the fact that gay/trans people exist.
I think this approach solves a real problem for the hetero community and also makes a salient political point at the same time.
“Lets just rename it with a snazzy new name and the libs will buy it.”
I’m not interested in the lib’s buying it. I fact I would very much prefer if we could find a way to keep them disinterested in this union.
The last thing we want is them working to redefining(and thus destroying) this marriage just like the last one.
” Lifelong sacred hookup?”
Somehow the word ‘hookup’ does not convey the practical propose as NOT being sex but raising children.
Morn the death of the word & union of marriage but also look toward this death as an opperunity for a rebirth of a true and faithful marriage among those both willing and needing.
Lets face it marriage has been dying for 50 years, and even as it was 5 years ago it was not real marriage so much as meaningless social statement trying on the trappings of a meaningful & ascent institution which no longer exists among most of our population.
Let us recognize what is(as not being marriage as it needs to be), and re-invite(reintroduce) what was and what is needed.
You’re not irrationally fearful of all those things you mentioned. In fact, you are rationally against them.
I fear what these idiots are doing to our country.
Yes. But that is not an irrational fear. That fear is real, and justified.
RE: Heres my solution: facilities should have a third bathroom for gay men, gay women and gay or straight transgenders. It makes perfect sense. The gay guys will NOT be looking at the lesbians. The lesbians will likewise NOT be looking at the gay men.
Can I pretend to be gay so that I can go to the women’s lockers and ogle at them? I promise to be in “professional mode”. :)
It’ll probably evolve to unisex facilities with water closets only in individual enclosures. The old fashioned urinal will go by the boards.
The current and tide is against that....
People will continue to Marry, no doubt, but the family unit will not get better IMO.
Kids today are “connected” via twitter, etc. but they are not having ‘relationships’. There is a difference.
So no, I cannot see the family unit , as we have known it, coming back.
They are not idiots. They know exactly what they’re doing. And they are winning.
They are idiots if they think they want to live in a communist state.
“Democracy is the theory that common people can vote for what they want and deserve to get it. Good and hard.” H L Mencken.
Like I said. Idiots.
I propose that congress enact legislation that every public enterprise must have three bathrooms. One for Men, Woman, and “It.”
Guess which ones will need a Hazmat Suit to clean.
“Kids today are connected via twitter, etc. but they are not having relationships. There is a difference.
So no, I cannot see the family unit , as we have known it, coming back.”
This is why we must reinvent it and do so with all hast.
We must teach our children to value this kind re-PRODUCTIVE of relationship, and demand as we do with marriage that they engage in it.
We don’t have a lot of influence but I know we have enough to save some and it is with that few that we can and will rebuild our civilization from the ashes left behind by this one.
I’m going to be pinging the lists again, this tomorrow.
We have already lost most of our Sovernity, and certainly our leadership has lost it's respect worldwide. Under this administration we are simply pawns in the hands of the UN and any other nation seeking to strip us even further...from our resources to our workforce and industry.
The “Exit” from this nation will not leave much left to “rebuild” with....already other countries will soon pass us and some have.
So your in a pipe dream if you think we can build anything from “ashes”.....the fight is NOW and if we fail further in this next election then it's a done deal...only watching it all happen will be left.
Your not paying attention to demographics and the roll of marriage.
The reality is the populations that support this abomination are killing themselves with it. Our “exit” is to refuse to be apart of that. Their ashes are what will be left after they die.
Globalization or not you can’t change the fact that two people of the same sex can’t conceive a child.
I understand completely the role of marriage and family....just exactly what “exit” are you referencing?
Look to the young today and tell me they will have any concern for what a family is when they are taught in the school systems exactly what it isn’t and accepting it as so.....it’s that generation you expect will see the world as we do?.... Not going to happen.
We are already importing foreigners better educated than our own, who think the world owes them.
How are you yourself going to refuse to be a part of it? Tell me because I really want to know....How are you going to stop the abortions and the kids from getting birthcontrol?...how are you going to go into the homes where chaos reigns? How are you going to get our representatives to move on behalf of the people who love this nation? How are you going to stop the educational brainwashing of an educational system that has our young people 8 to 10 hours every day and brainwashes them to “accept” the push that is now occuring in our country.??
Its really quite simple, my own family and my self is what I can control. My community and those around me is what I can influence.
I realize this is hard, and indeed it may even seem impossible to some. But we must try for the future of our own families depend upon our having some success with them.
As for addressing the tax payer funded indoctrination machine we must organize other plans for that.
Because the perps need a way to discover just exactly who is repulsed enough to vomit. Then the sickened can be harassed, mocked, ostracized, sued, fired, jailed and/or otherwise made a target for systematic abuse by the beast system.
Still have a functioning moral compass and refuse to exchange it for a defective one manufactured in Sodom? Expect to be hounded to death as you continue to reject all the generous buy-back schemes.
Truly these are the Days of Lot. The aggressors pound on the doors 24/7, expecting to be embraced or else.
