Liberal publications want to exile gay conservatives
Breitbart, and a Facebook post by Milo Yiannopoulos, have called out an article in the Guardian, “The Troubling Ascent of the LGBT right wing” by Arwa Mahdawi, link here.
There is talk of “pink washing” of “white nationalism”, and that the idea that the gay right, believing it hs moved away from the group loyalty of modern identity politics, has succumbed to the “oldest form of identity politics”.
But Michael Musto in Out gets much more explicit when he admonishes, “What to do when your friend is a gay Republican”, link. Short answer: unfriend or block him.
But is “inaction” an offense? What about refusal to use gender-neutral pronouns?
