My genuine question to you Kriterion,
Would you be this accepting if this stuff was happening to Bangladesh only instead?
Nice deflection, but to humor you, I'll bite.
Bangladesh has many far greater concerns than one single instance of potential child abuse. I will even go ahead and name some of them for you:
1) Climate change. As the sea levels rise gradually, much of Bangladesh will be underwater for much of the year, rendering life impossible. Other parts of Bangladesh will find human habitation greatly diminished. Bangladesh is is 1/6th the size of Texas, but has 6 times the population. Doing the math, this means big trouble.
2) Water. Bangladesh has an immensely strained potable water supply. Much of the water has dangerous levels of arsenic in it.
3) Liveablity. Dhaka, the capital city routinely ranks as amongst the worst or least livable cities one the planet. Even worse than Harare, to my knowledge.
4) Crime and violent crime.
5) Rohingya refugees. Bangladesh now houses more than 1 million Burmese Muslim refugees who fled ethnic cleansing and genocide at the hands of majority Buddhist population. For a poor country like Bangladesh this is an immense burden and a strain. This will pose all sorts of problems in the coming years. Additional refugees may flee in the coming years from Burma or India.
Notice how LGBTQ or transgender does not feature anywhere on this list. If two gay guys want to marry, how does that affect any straight person in Bangladesh? Whether they marry or not, they are still going to be fucking, so whats the big deal?
Just for the record, I'm not pro-gay marriage. I'm just not anti...its no business of mine. The only conceivable way it might be my business is if it was a public health issue in any way.
I know Bangladesh is a dump with severe issues that you have outlined, and I’m not deflecting.
My point was to your point that I was over dramatising an issue.
However the gay issue is something that is happening all over the west + Europe. It’s leading to distortion of the pillars of our society that’s going to have consequences. Some mild, some not so much.
My Bangladesh question was genuine and it was on a deeper level to the point above^
I wanted your honest thoughts of how you would feel if your spiritual, Islamic homeland that you hold dear to your identity went down a path that was taken over culturally by LGBT alphabet stuff.
It is my belief that you are able to disassociate yourself from it in the comfort that this hasn’t taken over the Islamic world and as a member you can lol/brush it off with a sense of distance. This is my instinct and I’m sorry if I’m wrong. It is not a criticism. I get it. I’m envious.
But understand please that people on the other side of the fence don’t have that place of serenity to withdraw too in the same way, it’s Diminishing.
I know that Bdesh has bigger problems but the west has issues too, and how would you feel about having Bangladesh media draw focus on gay issues and ignore the sea level issue and such? That’s what a lot of people in the west are sick of. We have issues and the attention is all gay shit.
