  1. that is an outstanding read and echoes many of my own thought processes about woke thought and intersectionality. This stuff is the most depressing religion I've ever heard of - you get all the strident authoritarianism, unquestionable dogma, impassioned declarations of heresy, and condemnation of unbelievers, but you don't get any forgiveness of sins or seventy two virgins.
  2. that's a fair and considerate response. For me, whether I'd acquiesce to the request would depend on my respect for the person and/or their reason for asking, but it still seems like a weird and controlling thing to ask. In my experience the type of people that ask things like that generally end up being more trouble than they're worth.
  3. this is correct - at heart, it's the same type of church lady mentality that used to find its true calling crusading against the dangers of heavy metal and Dungeons and Dragons. They're the people who know what's best for you whether you like it or not. having grown up the son of a Deep South Evangelical preacher, it's incredibly weird and somewhat scary to see the religious parallels with this stuff.

I'm just checking in from the peanut gallery here, brother, but I'm guessing he probably strongly disagrees with the reasoning of the putative neo-Torquemadas spearheading these types of relentless idealistic purification crusades, and he probably believes it's a bad idea for that school of thought to grow more pervasive throughout American society than it already is right now. but that seems to be pretty self-explanatory to me, so your question comes across like a non-sequitur - it sounds like you're looking to dismiss discussion of the issue based on geography versus substantive value.
