What a bunch of absolutely clueless, weenie, hysterical, social engineering snowflakes GOPers are becoming. Ever since they let the Big Lie and the MAGA mindset take over their party like a bunch of zombies, they are becoming increasingly unhinged and intolerant of something the rest of us worked out a long time ago. Don’t Say Gay. Drag Queen Story Time. Pride Parades. You name it, they are all bent out of shape about it even though the majority of us aren’t phased at all. Here’s why:

  8. LGBTQ+ are generally quite law abiding, peaceful, non-violent and community-oriented. They are strong contributors.
  9. LGBTQ+ are equally patriotic and have regularly defended our country with honor putting their lives on the line.
  10. There are far worse groups and much more important issues to get all worked up about.
  11. It’s hard enough being in the LGBTQ+ community surrounded by 90% of people who don’t identify this way. Leave them alone. Show some moral courage and security.
  12. We ALREADY voted for acceptance. We passed laws and upheld them in the Supreme Court. We…
