Stop Your Whining, LGBTQ People. You’re Actually the Most Privileged Among Us!
If there's one area in which the bullying left excels, it's projection: that is, complaining about the very practices in which it engages. It was the Democrat Party, not the Republican Party, which advocated for slavery and championed against civil rights. But listen to the left, they'll say the Republicans are the party of racism. It is the Democrat Party which has supported any number of leaders who've disrespected women (Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, Ted Kennedy, lo the entire Kennedy clan, John Edwards, Justin Fairfax, Keith Ellison to name a few), yet Democrats claim Republicans have engaged in a war against women. It is the intolerant #Resistance who rails against conservatives and Trump supporters, but listen to the left, and America is replete with hate crimes against LGBTQ people. When in fact, no. The LGBTQ community enjoys far more privileges than everyone else.
For some background reading, check out the investigative work of Andy Ngo, who looked into the spate of "hate crimes" against LGBTQ people in the leftist mecca of Portland, Oregon. It was Andy's story which inspired this column: that of all the varying, warring factions in intersectional politics, the LGBTQ community reigns gender-queer queen supreme.
Oh yes, the Muslim community ranks high on the leftist totem of victims, but only when it pleases them. Specifically after there's been a terrorist attack committed in the name of Allah. Then Muslims move from their typical number two spot to number one. But for the most part, the LGBTQ community sits at the tippy top of the victim pole, so high they've manufactured new "rights," generated privileges no else could ever enjoy, and have even changed the language itself.
So if you're a member of this privileged group of people, do us all a favor, and shut your yaps about "cisgender privilege." There is no such thing. "Privilege" in our modern times lies solely with those who bitch the loudest. You.
Let's go through the evidence, shall we?
Up until the last fivish years, no one spoke of preferred gender pronouns. There were but two, one for men, one for women. Everyone went about their days with nary a thought about "misgendering" a living soul. But after TEH GAYZ altered the language and put marriage in their toy box, the Gaystapo sought out more ways to bully, to tear apart traditions, and took aim at gender itself.

Yet so successful have you been in bullying your opposition, bending people to your twisted will, you've successfully created laws that punish people who question your "personal truth" of gender. Which is just 2019 parlance for delusion.
No cisgender person could've ever gotten away with demanding the majority bend to their will in direct defiance with the laws of reality. And yet, wave a rainbow flag, scream loud enough, threaten to commit suicide, and suddenly the government of the United Kingdom will hunt down people who question your gender identity.

Not just the United Kingdom, by the way. Based Dad Dr. Jordan B. Peterson rose to cultural fame for standing up to the nonbinary bullies in Canada: Professor REFUSES to Use Genderless Pronouns. 'Tolerant.' Students Bully Him.
It doesn't stop with language. Children are being taken away from their parents if those parents refuse to conform with your LGBTQ edicts. If a mother says her son is transgender and the father objects to his son being pumped full of hormones, guess who wins.

Where's the "cisgendered privilege" here?
Yes, so privileged is your LGBTQ community, you've successfully stolen the rights of parents in favor of your perverted sense of justice: that somehow a person who sees themselves as the opposite of what they are upturns not just reality, but the natural, biological order of parents knowing what's best for their children. Heck, it used to be children had to be adults before they could make decisions without parental consent. But you've upended that rule as well.

After all the altering of normalcy, do you really expect us to believe you are somehow discriminated against in the workplace? In society itself? You've got society by the shorthairs. You've made it so anyone who questions you could be banished from civil society, and in some countries, face prison time. Who else can exercise such privilege?
Maybe "privilege" isn't the right term. Tyranny is more apt.
All this, by the way, came after the LGBT (not sure if there was a Q at the time, it's so hard to keep track), redefined marriage itself, mutating it from a union between one man and one woman into whatever the hell you wanted it to be. Marriage wasn't perfect, but it wasn't a joke either. But now women are marrying themselves and men are marrying holograms or their sex bots. Progress sure got weird.
This isn't even mentioning how LGBTQ people use their privilege to escalate and perpetuate hate crime hoaxes, while an increasing number of conservatives and MAGA people suffer from real hate crimes. The media is on your side, not ours. The media carries the rainbow water on your behalf. Save those times the Muslims need a hand.
So no, straight "cisgender" men and women don't have "privilege." You do. Every time a man wears a dress and insists he's a lady, thus pushing women out of women's spaces, that's an example of
tyranny "privilege." Every time a gay couple sues a bakery out of existence because they didn't cater to their will, that's tyranny "privilege." Redefining a human institution which served humanity just fine -- marriage -- so that you, too, could be called "married" that's tyranny privilege.
The idea you are oppressed by a "heteronormative" society is projection. You're not oppressed by anyone. You're the oppressors.
