Told You So: Conservatives Have Warned Over And Over Where LGBTQ Agenda Leads

Written by Dr. Everett Piper

Headlines from the week’s news that belong in the “We told you so” category are too numerous to count. The file drawer titled “Ideas have consequences” is overflowing. Consider these examples:

Adidas launches a summer marketing campaign showing a male model wearing one of the company’s new women’s swimsuits. The ad features a man with visible chest hair who is intentionally photographed in profile to draw attention to his unmistakable “male bulge.” And lest you miss the misogyny of this marketing campaign, the sports icon highlights its ad as part of the “women’s” section on its website.

The clear message here is that if you’re a female, you cease to exist as soon as a delusional male wants your bathroom, shower, scholarship or athletic championship. Womanhood no longer matters, and the wise and “woke” at Adidas smugly applaud while debauched men take the gains of your movement from you, up to and including your clothing and even your identity.

Not to be outdone in this rush to erase every feminist accomplishment of the past 50 years, Target has just unveiled its summer marketing strategy by dedicating shelf space in all of its stores nationwide to what it calls “queer-owned” brands. What do such products include, you ask? Well, things such as “chest binders to flatten women’s breasts” and “tuck-friendly” bathing suits designed to help biological men appear more feminine. What could possibly be wrong with any of that? Surely all women should applaud caricatures that explicitly demean the physical distinctions between them and their biological counterparts, right?

In the meantime, out in America’s flyover country, a group of University of Wyoming students recently found it necessary to take legal action to protect themselves from a “transgender woman” demanding membership to Kappa Kappa Gamma house. What is causing these sorority sisters such angst, you ask? Well, it’s a 6-foot-2, 260-pound man named Artemis Langford, who, while “identifying” as a female, is following these young women around their house with an erection showing through his yoga pants.

None of this lunacy takes place in a vacuum. These stories are reported in the context of dozens like them — gems such as:

Twenty-seven Democrats in the Colorado House of Representatives just voted against making indecent exposure to minors a felony. One legislator was brazen enough to say that the reason for her negative vote was because the bill’s criminal prohibition of indecent exposure unfairly targeted the drag and trans communities.

In Washington state, the Democratic majority has passed Senate Bill 5599, making it legal to hide runaway children from their parents if the mother and father in question don’t consent to their child’s “gender transition.”

And in Texas, undercover footage recently revealed a high school teacher’s unapologetically advocating pedophilia to a classroom full of minor children: “We’re gonna call them MAPs, minor-attracted persons,” the teacher said. “So don’t judge people just because they wanna have sex with a 5-year-old.”

(The teacher, Amber Parker, has since been fired.)

Over the past 15 years or so, conservatives have warned over and over where the LGBTQ narrative will lead.

Time and time again, we said that Obergefell v. Hodges would result in the codification of every sexual deviancy as a protected minority class.

–We said that our nation’s rush to sexual nihilism would not only affect adults but also have a devastating impact on children.

–We said that abandoning the objective definitions of sexuality, sex and sexual morality, would end in no standards left to judge anything — ANYTHING — as right or wrong.

–We warned that we were even blurring the line between adults and children.

–We sounded the alarm that, before we knew it, “consensual” sex between anyone and anything would soon be the law of the land.

–We said age wouldn’t matter and biology wouldn’t matter.

–We said reality wouldn’t matter.

–We said it would be a free-for-all.

–We said defining human beings by their desires would result in people acting like animals.

–We said our nation would soon be behaving like the imago dog rather than the imago Dei.

And over and over again, we were told, “That’ll never happen.”

Well, here we are.

Dare we say we told you so?

Ideas always have consequences. This garbage was as predictable as the sunrise. And it’s far from over. We have opened Pandora’s box. Poseidon has released the Kraken. Jesus weeps while Screwtape laughs.
