The continuing normalization of homosexuality
Yesterday someone wrote a comment about how just a few decades ago, the standard thinking among atheists was that homosexuality was a type of mental illness. [Riflemnan clarifies: A few decades ago it wasn’t just “crazy religious people” who thought that homosexuals were not normal. The standard thinking even among atheists was that homosexuality was a type of mental illness.] Soon, it will be illegal to treat homosexuality as if it were any sort of problem at all.
Maybe we should ban all sorts of mental health therapy. Does it not stigmatize people with depression to try to treat them as if there is something wrong with them? Who’s to say what’s “normal” and what’s not? Maybe the horrible stigma is the reason why depressed people commit suicide at much higher rates than the non-depressed.

lion- as you eloquently and presciently wrote over a year ago, the war is over. The gays won.
There is amazing power in controlling the mainstream media. You can alter the way people think. That is why I agree with the French law about banning models with a BMI under 18. You remove those images, and people will stop thinking that a BMI of under 18 is desirable.
