Have homophobia and misogyny been defeated?

Recommended Posts

Have homophobia and misogyny been defeated?

Laws that promote equality are the basic staple of most progressive elected governments these days.

Those laws and the modernization, and civilizing of most religions, have helped reduce misogyny and homophobia as most recognize that those are negative discriminations without a just causes.

I see almost no one advocating for homophobia or misogyny in any of the sites I frequent.

Are we all getting more civilized?

Or is shame keeping homophobes and the misogynous in hiding?

How many sites have you visited in your travels and do you think it's enough to be a representative random sample

Many and yes.

Like here, no one is advocating the evils mentioned much anywhere.

The moral cowards are cowards and staying away in shame, I hope.

How dare they refuse to be subordinate!!

Have they forgotten that men are stronger and win all arguments, even though with inquisitions or jihad tactics? Force and fit is how testosterone wins over estrogen and intelligence.

The ancient Gnostic Jesus tried to show the apostles that they should see women as if Jesus had turned them into men.

That was the lesson for all men, of course.

 As a universalist, Gnostic Jesus has to see all souls as equal, unlike the Roman Jesus who will bring an immoral Armageddon.

Gnostic Christians have a strange view of equality.

Before the law, no problem. In reality, a Gnostic man like me always puts women and children first.

I get laughed at by those who see a man's duty to family and society as less. I don't care.

Probably a bit of both and a little of neither. As we progress, we are becoming more progressive. It's also skewed because we don't truly know who's using the internet, but I think it's a relatively safe bet that the younger generations are using the internet more than the older generations, which isn't true representation. We're also frequenting websites generally that have a wider common interest that isn't aligned with misogyny and homophobia. I also believe there are groups that prefer to stay hidden, not out of shame per say, but because it's easier to ignore an opinion that isn't fighting you.

I'm fascinated about what you think on this? We continue to eradicate the behaviours we do not like. What I feel it's doing is sending people that do hold those opinions into extremes, and creating more dangerous individuals and groups as a result.

Insightful.

The intolerant homophobes have indeed ostracized themselves into intolerant supremacist groups.

That would include all the immoral right wing religions that do not see us all as equal in value.
