he supported abortion and illegal immigration AND gun control until he suddenly ran for president and wanted to appeal to rational thinking people which is why he pretends to be a right winged smart person because hes a liberal in disguise tbh so ye fuck him
actually it’s because the right wing offers him more money [because they are more careless with their money/have to reinforce their ideas somehow: the NRA for example] and because he can get support by shock value, but go off, support a racist/sexist/homophobe/transphobe. saying that people who support and adore trump are rational though is embarassing and sad for multiple reasons, but mostly because you’re implying that racists/sexists/homophobes/transphobes are okay and fair in their discrimination
and im literally-
AND HE ISNT EVEN HOMOPHOBIC!!! HES THE FIRST FUCKING PRESIDENT TO SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE GOING INTO OFFICE ALTHOUGH HE DOESNT CONDONE IT FOR RELIGIOUS REASONS HE STILL PUTS IT ASIDE FOR PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO MARRY WHO THEY WANT BUT
AND HIS POLICIES ON IMMIGRATION ARENT RACIALLY MOTIVATED ITS FOR ECONOMIC REASONS
AND HE SUPPORTS TRANS
ok the sexism i can kinda see in him but still
but yeah sure im a gay guy who supports homophobia because i support free thinking and religious freedom
- some ways trump is anti-lgbt (the bulleted list is short and sweet and to the point)
- trump’s homophobic cabinet members (who are appointed by him to represent his administration and are therefore a reflection of him)
- Religious Liberty Accommodations Act info.
- this article is from 2016, but has some things Trump has said about people in the LGBT community/the community
- did you know he hasn’t even acknowledged pride month?
- how trump is racist
- generalized and called Mexicans “drug dealers, criminals, and rapists” (generalizations are bad, by the way)
- Muslim Ban
- “shithole countries”
- another article
you don’t even need articles about his sexism and sexual harassment because he’s been 100% open and bragging about it (but for example, “grab her by the pussy” and Stormy)
you can like Trump, but saying he isn’t racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic is blatantly foolish and willingly turning a blind eye
(also, I’m pretty sure Obama supported the LGBT community during his presidency. He might not have been the first president ever to do it, but he certainly did it before–and better than–Trump. here’s what he did.)
ANYWAY. SIDENOTE but not really…where did you or I say anything regarding free thinking and religious freedom? you previously said “rational thinking” in reference to Trump supporters–not FREE. there is a fine difference between rational thinking and free thinking. trump supporters can think freely, but just because it’s independent thought doesn’t mean it’s rational.
that still doesn’t explain where the religious freedom bit came from though, as it wasn’t mentioned in your first comment. if you’re implying I’m against either, you probably a) don’t have a proper understanding of what “free thinking” (again, free thinking is not equivalent to rational thinking) or “religious freedom” is, or b) you don’t know my beliefs and haven’t cared to ask because you’d rather attack me in your ignorance. (additionally, if you’re going to support free thought, support it in everyone rather than just in ways in benefits you and your side. that prevents it from looking hypocritical.)
p.s. supporting free thought and religious freedom doesn’t mean you’re homophobic?? it’s the fact that you’re supporting a person–more importantly, defending a person–who is homophobic that, in turn, means you support homophobia in some form.
most of trumps homophobic comments dont really state that hes legally against gay marriage because hes recently been defending it and all im saying is hes religiously opposed to it from a moral standpoint but still putting it aside for eaual marriage rights. and a lot of those things he said that were apparently bigoted stem from supportig peoples free speech and right to be bigots, or something taken way out of context or overdramaticized (for example, misgendering bruce jenner).
and i see how the muslim ban and his comments on illegal immigrants can be seen as racist, but i think race should be put aside in these issues to keep people from being put in danger through possible terrorism or drug trafficking.
as for the homophobic cabinet members, i dont think he really took homophobia as a factor in assigning his cabinet. he wanted conservatives, who are unfortunately generally more religious, thus homophobic. i dont agree with it but the fact is trump isnt doing anything to gay marriage so i dont see why lgbt people are up in arms at him.
and the “grab em by the pussy” thing was 12 years ago and was just a joke, so dont call him sexist over that. i think hes sexist but for different reasons (like the maridal rape allegations and the multiple wives)
is this real. like are you being serious right now
