"Gay" in the News: Morphing From "Leave Us Alone" to "Bake Us a Cake!"
When "Leave us alone" became "Bake us a cake. Or else!"
There was some point of departure where imploring everyone to just look the other way and ignore deviant behavior became strident demands to participate in public flaunting of "gender identity", or face criticism, and now lawsuits.
Advocates of "equivalence" for deviant behavior have escalated the issue, although their efforts have been consistently voted down through democratic process. They continue to insist, and federal judges are now backing their claims. Mainstream traditions are becoming indefensible in most lawsuits, as federal judges and elected officials see no difference between practices that reflect social norms and those that represent deviance.
