With Trump getting elected, Brexit, Leicester City winning the Premier League in spite of 5000-to-1 odds, Germany finishing last in its group, etc. there have been plenty of surprises or “things that can’t happen” happening in the past few years. What is another “Can’t happen” thing that may very well happen soon?
I think the Cleveland Browns may very well be legit Super Bowl contenders in the near future, for one.
And America is heading for a tyrannical dystopia very soon.
I also suspect some LGBT advocates may one day take things to the point where heterosexuals will be required to participate in gay activities as part of LGBT education.
Not things like orgies, of course, but I could envision a school activity/curriculum in which students are required to watch a movie with LGBT scenes, and those who refuse or show disgust would face discipline.
The closest thing I can imagine to something like this, is that schools that have sex-ed classes will no longer assume that everyone is heterosexual, and if they already show videos with PDAs in them, will mix in some images of same-sex couples. People registering involuntary disgust, like making a face, but not directing it at anyone would not be disciplined, but people actively making fun of the images of same-sex couples, like shouting “Fags!” at the images, whispering unkind things to their neighbors, or saying another student’s name during those images (whether that student is out or not) would be disciplined.
If parents request that their child be excused from any part of the class that gives “equal time” to same-sex images, or from the class altogether if it is required, on the basis of some religious objection to being gay, I’m sure would be granted the exemption. It would be better to excuse a few kids, rather than have the parents challenge the existence of the class altogether (or just the equal time content).
That means that students acting up in the class over LGBTQ content would probably not have parents who would object to them being disciplined over it. I don’t imagine the discipline would be very stringent. They might have to write a short essay, or go to a single after-school detention (which are usually about 1/2 hour, and the student can choose the day of the week, in most schools I know of, so there is time to arrange transportation home), and that would be the end of it.
An essentially single-race, single-party, single-religion America, since everyone insufficiently white, Republican or Christian will be either driven out of the country or killed within the next decade or two.
And for the above reason an America that is at best a second-tier power since it has gutted itself in the name of racial, religious and political purity.
Those two things are mutually incompatible, as we are talking about a right wing dystopia.
I find it much more likely that civil rights for LGBT (and everyone else) have passed their peak, and what LGBT advocates want will no longer be a factor since every known or suspected LGBT person in the US will have either fled or been rounded up and tortured to death in “conversion” camps.
I don’t know how it works where you live, but around here, if a parent doesn’t want a child to take sex ed, that child doesn’t take sex ed. Period. It doesn’t take a religious, or moral, or any other basis to object.
