NeoNotes - Homosexuality wasn't illegal

I'm too tired to play by the rules tonight, so I will lay it out.

Homosexuality wasn't illegal. It wasn't legalized. Certain homosexual acts were illegal, but not the status itself. What's more, you don't want homosexuality made illegal because it will become much more popular and any government that can make homosexuality illegal can also make heterosexuality illegal. All it takes is the right politicos in the right places. There's a long convoluted argument for both of those points, but I'm too tired to condense things right now.

Despite your personal beliefs, homosexuality is not the issue. It's the distraction.

Yes, the distraction. It's the pink pantaloons and bared breasts and freaky tattoos. It's all designed to make you nervous, to make you clutch your Bible harder, and maybe even make you froth at the mouth.

It's the distraction.

Because if you're convinced that homosexuality is the issue, you fight a war that cannot be won.

You cannot outlaw homosexuality. You can only try to outlaw sexual behavior you don't like. But Americans have this habit ignoring laws they think are stupid.

I tell people all the time that the people who pay attention to gun laws aren't the ones you should worry about.

The same thing applies here.

The real issue is completely different.

Tax money is going to endorse and encourage one set of behaviors over all others.

That's it.

While the distraction captures your attention, they're picking your pocket to do things for your own good.

Whether you agreed or not.

It's for your own good.

How dare you question!!!

You want to win the battle?

Take away that government support.

Let the free market of ideas work.

If people want to study, fine. But no subsidies. People will have to pay.

And by the way, the same goes for the ideas you agree with.

If people want to study, fine. But no subsidies. People will have to pay.

Yes, there will be ideas taught that you don't like. But those ideas will have no artificial advantage.

The only measure left will be which ideas work in real life.
