I can't imagine this post is going to stay up long, but in the name of honesty, it does deserve to be said.
It was about that same time when the presidential campaign was underway and we voted that we were having all things gay crammed down our throats by mainstream media.
Personally, I do not see the transgender issue as being a LGBT issue. It's a transgender issue.
I mean...just because a person does not want to see laws passed that would permit men to wander in and out of women's restrooms willy-nilly and law enforcement forbidden to stop it, does not mean a person is opposed to gay rights.
That's a distortion.
Considering Gay Marriage had recently made it through the Supreme Court (which I can get behind so long as churches do not end up being punished that do not endorse it), I had personally decided the Supreme Court does not need more liberals.
We can talk about all the reasons Trump got elected, but I think you have to step back and look at all the things going on at that time.
Conservatives have been watching America move more and more to the left for decades.
Trump getting elected may just be the result of a perfect storm that all the issues together were enough to get him elected that by themselves might not have been enough.
There is a growing concern among conservatives any hope of maintaining any influence in America is waning.
