August 8, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has produced a Twitter ad meant to pay tribute to Gay Pride events now taking place in Amsterdam. The only thing is, the tweet serves to do the exact opposite.
The ad shows three sets of seat belts. The first consists of two female ends. The second pairs two male ends. The third depicts a male with a female end and is clearly the only seat belt pairing that actually works.
If KLM equipped its aircraft with set number one or number two, its entire fleet would be grounded for safety reasons. And if even one passengers seat was outfitted with double male or double female ends, the plane would not even be allowed to pull away from the gate because of the safety hazard presented to that one passenger.
Only the set of complementary seat belts protects passengers from harm. The others have no real value. In fact, they invite danger.
One of the best responses to the airlines tweet came from Rick Canton: Fly Royal Dutch Airlines, where your only chance of surviving a crash is buckling up the heterosexual way.
If the seat belts, aka safety belts consist of either two male or two female ends, they dont actually form a belt because they cant connect. They remain simply two rainbow-colored straps, rendering the term belt a misnomer. As such, the first two pairings do not qualify to be identified as either belts or as devices of safety. Because they are non-complementary, neither term applies.
In this way, the KLM ad offers a perfect explanation of why same-sex marriage is an impossible notion.
KLMs lesson: defying natural law is dangerous
If the hearts fit, the parts fit. These words were emblazoned on T-shirts during Washington D.C.s 2008 gay pride celebration.
Image In those days, I was living as a gay man. My initial reaction back then was: What a great slogan! Its so simple, even dense, backwards conservative straight folks will finally be able to understand. I was so taken with it, when I got home I spread out the shirt on a table and snapped a picture. That was nearly 10 years ago, and since then the gay world and I have gone in polar opposite directions.
Over time, I slowly began to see that this slogan did far more to indict than it did to promote the cause of same-sex marriage. It accidentally identifies the very reason that genderless relationships are ineligible to be called marriage, demanding that we all pretend that complementarity is an irrelevant, outdated component of human relationships and existence.
If the parts dont fit, it is not a marriage. It is something else.
The unsafe, irrational, audacious demand of same-sex marriage: We all must pretend
Todays dominant narrative that gays are weak victims, deprived of marriage by society, is a fabrication. The exact opposite is true: Gays are extremely strong-minded and iron-willed in their rejection of women, resolute in their choice not to grow as human beings in their appreciation for half the human race.
Thanks to the Supreme Courts 2015 Obergefell ruling, our nation has now institutionalized that rejection, celebrating the evils of misogyny and misandry.
The recent institutionalizing of gay marriage across the country is a wonder of marketing and manipulation. Its acceptance by non-gays stems from the same mindset that every kid on the soccer or tee-ball team deserves a trophy. No one should feel bad or left out. A Me, My, Mine mentality that ignores natural law seems to have swept this countrys coastal elites off their feet.
Here is a comment made by a gay man to an article I wrote in 2014 for American Thinker about the 25-year-long LGBT campaign to market same-sex marriage to America:
Image We are supposed to pretend that any relationship Sean chooses to call a marriage is actually a marriage. Sean wants us to pretend with him, otherwise we are all Nazis.
Same-sex marriage is a rejection of marriage. Gays dont really want marriage. They want something different from marriage. They want a committed, sexual relationship with another man. And in practice, sometimes these relationships might be monogamous, but lets face it: the vast majority quickly devolve into open or semi-open relationships.
If gays truly wanted marriage, they would find a nice girl, get a minister, get hitched, and settle down. But thats not what gays want.
Having forsaken that right to the immutable definition of marriage, the 1.7 percent of American adults who identify as gay or lesbian demanding to call their relationships marriage inflict an enormous burden on the other 98.3 percent of American adults. To ask the entire population to forsake the definition of marriage, and pretend that two guys or two women together is a marriage, is asking way too much. It demands that intellectual honesty be shut down; it demands that common sense be turned off. It demands that we all pretend. It demands that we all become intellectually dishonest.
LGBT and Progressive activists want everyone to go along with the charade that were all engaged in the exact same thing. We are not.
Defying natural law is as imprudent as defying the law of gravity
Like Newtons law of gravity, natural law cant be defied or ignored, at least not for long. We deny or disregard the significance of complementarity at our own peril, for the consequences of our denial will likely be staggering.
Remember the Road Runner cartoon on Saturday mornings? Wile E. Coyote is able to resist gravity for a few seconds as he speeds off the edge of a cliff, unable to stop or turn as agilely as the Road Runner. He lingers in the air for a few seconds, but gravity always wins, sending poor Wile E. plummeting to the canyon floor, a thousand feet below.
In the same way, complementarity will win. Same-sex marriage will reveal itself to be a game of pretend, even to the gays and lesbians so engaged.
Like gravity itself, the logic and wisdom of complementarity are inescapable. Like nature, complementaritys simple organic beauty and elegance are undeniably profound. And while the Bible certainly expresses themes of love and compassion, unconditional love does not require that we pretend that all relationships are precisely equal, or that moms or dads are expendable for children.
Bottom line lesson
The bottom line is this: It is impossible to be on the right side of history or science while simultaneously on the wrong side of natural law. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is helping the world understand this.
I'd be interested in before and after pictures of the streets and canals focusing upon debris that is or isn't there.
The graphic they tweeted out was hilarious. It simply proves that same—same is a deadly combo. I can’t imagine anyone was dumb enough not to see the major problems with the tweet.
Seat belts should be optional on a plane, especially during turbulent weather.
The definition of ‘Marriage’ has been the same since time immemorial. It is the union of one man and one woman. Period. Changing the definitions of words to placate a segment of the population is ridiculous. How about this.......I want the word ‘beautiful’ to mean ‘nice, but average looking’. Do I have any people who agree?? No?? The Left has become tyrannical and we had better stand up to them soon......or our culture will be completely lost and we will fall just as surely as Rome fell. (And just because the dictionaries have now listed ‘gay marriage’ as the second definition of the word marriage, doesn’t make it the truth. That just proves that the editors of the dictionaries are Leftists who don’t want trouble with their side of politics)
The fun parts don’t fit. Perfectly illustrated in the ad.
The fake Steve Bannon (SteveBannen) retweeted it, which makes it even funnier.
I saw this elsewhere, pretty funny in a sad sort of way.
The visual is priceless! Male on male or female on female make for a very bumpy ride!
[ The ad shows three sets of seat belts. The first consists of two female ends. The second pairs two male ends. The third depicts a male with a female end and is clearly the only seat belt pairing that actually works. ]
Bet they thought they were pretty clever.
I’ll be happy if no more of their flyboys roll in heavy fog with only a departure clearance and not a takeoff clearance.
“You can ignore reality but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality”- Ayn Rand.
You missed the point of the article, or was that your intent?
I know there is only about 1.7 percent of the American population that is gay, but sometimes I think it is around 90 percent......I know it is the media that has perpetrated that on us.
I was going to post something else more in depth......however.....”Male on male or female on female make for a very bumpy ride!”.....there is beauty in simplicity.
Men and women compliment each other. They complete each other. Anything else will never work, it’s all pretend.
She’s sounding pretty smart.
The image of the three belt buckles only has one combination that will work as intended.
