Gary Nunn, Stonewall's communications officer, has a post in ‘CiF’ to outline the fakecharity’s plans for the future:
Gay equality campaigning is about to change direction. This month marks two decades since Stonewall was first founded – and heralds a new era in the recent history of rapid advances towards lesbian, gay and bisexual equality. So Stonewall's focus shifts from changing the law to changing social attitudes.Some would say you’ve got that a little backwards, Gary…
The law has changed, but society needs to catch up.The law is a pretty blunt instrument, and not guaranteed to effect that ‘societal change’ that you seem to be looking for if it is regarded by the public as yet another special interest group’s attempt at ‘special pleading’.
It's the next 20 years that hold the bigger challenges. If passed, the new equality bill will signal a book-end to this unprecedented legislative revolution and close the first chapter on the journey towards equality. The second chapter – changing the wider world – will be far tougher. Stonewall and our allies will need to work harder than ever in the years ahead before we can truly declare Britain's 3.6 million lesbian and gay people to be fully equal.People’s attitudes have changed remarkably in the last 20 years, despite the fevered claims of ‘homophobia’ in the article, backed up by examples of the kind of nastiness that is faced by almost anyone at the hands of lawless thugs in these 'progressive' times. In what way are they not ‘fully equal’ now, as far as employment protection, etc?
Only, it seems, in the sense that they are now (as with other defined victim groups) ‘more equal than others’.
Indeed, there’s even ‘hate crime’ legislation on the statute books, whereby if you are beaten or verbally abused because you were in the wrong place at the wrong time by a feral thug, while two streets over, your gay brother is beaten or abused by another feral thug, that is considered somehow worse and attracts a higher penalty. Even if both your bruises take the same time to heal...
So it’s not really ‘equality’ that you seem to want, is it? Or you'd campaign for the rights of all people to walk the street unmolested by feral thugs, whether gay, straight, or indifferent.
And it seems Stonewall have figured out that the MPs aren’t the only ones making policy these days:
In the next two decades, Stonewall will begin to move away from lobbying. We'll find creative ways to work more with GPs than MPs, more with teachers than with ministers, and more with secretaries in workplaces than secretaries of state – so that all local communities and organisations keep equality at the core of everything they do.Not by force of law or threat of legislation, they won’t. You cannot force people to accept and 'celebrate' alternative lifestyles by threatening them with the law.
This'll mean that – from Westminster to Weston-super-Mare – lesbian, gay and bisexual people will not be merely tolerated, or even just accepted.
They'll be valued and embraced.
You will get, at most, grudging acquiescence, and at worst, bitter hatred and a deepening desire to thwart the rules.
Is that really what you want? To cement the entrenched attitudes you claim to campaign against?
Because if so, congrats! Ur doin' it right...
