Why Everything Is So Gay

In a recent post (Why Is Everything So Gay?), we shared one explanation for why everything in America is so gay now: George Soros. As the "Redheaded Libertarian" Twitter account elaborated: 

The CEI— Corporate Equality Index— is a woke credit score, that judges companies based on how many woke issues they are pushing.

  1. What is “woke”? A word co-oped from the black community by gender activists that was infected with Neo Marxism.
  2. Who made up & gives the score? From my understanding, The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), sends lobbyists to companies and gives them a list of demands, and if they don’t comply with these demands, the woke investors put pressure on the boards, activists are mobilized, advertising campaigns are shut down, and anyone who continues to do business with the poorly scored company, will also be penalized.
  3. And who is funding the HRC? Open Society Foundation.
  4. Who runs Open Society Foundation? Uh oh. Definitely don’t google that [George Soros]. Essentially, if you don’t get a good score the Lizard God-King of the world doesn’t let your business exist. This fake score is everywhere and is controlling everyone and everything with threats and coercion This despotic rot is the result of a compromised country.

That was a useful explanation, but an incomplete one. It doesn't explain why government organizations like the FBI have gone gay too:

A More Capacious Explanation

Auron MacIntyre offered a more capacious explanation on the first day of Gay Pride Month, one which is big enough to encompass the government sector as well as the private sector. He elaborates in the excellent thread below, but in a nutshell, the modern idea of separation of church and state (often erroneously thought to be contained in the First Amendment) opened the door for a secular religion, progressivism, to infect all of our institutions. 

One Thing This Doesn't Explain

MacIntyre's explanation is a good complement to the Redheaded Libertarian's explanation, but neither explains why some religions themselves have gone gay. 

The modern prophet Tom Wolfe may not have explained this phenomenon, but he did predict it.
