    Japan continues to uphold its ban on gay marriage. It won’t last forever. As the younger people are much more “eh don’t care” or supportive.

    I know it’s a long shot but over the long run I think it’s a good idea.

    Gay marriage should be codified in law. We all saw how much it did that Abortion was never codified. I know it might not do anything. Especially in the senate. But it’s worth a shot. Especially on more local level. If you live in a blue state that never made it law and just had a court decision make it legal that should be codified.

    100%. Obergefell will be overturned by next June and protecting gay marriage should be our biggest priority.

    According to representatives of the county’s teacher association, teachers and staff members will be disallowed from wearing rainbow articles of clothing, including lanyards distributed by the district last year. Elementary-level teachers reported being discouraged from putting pictures of their same-sex spouse on their desk or talking about them to students.​

    “Safe Space” stickers aimed at LGBTQ students may have to be removed from doors, teachers will have to report to parents if a student “comes out” to them and they must use pronouns assigned at birth, regardless of what the parents allow, the CTA reported.​

    Partial fix, just keep going with anything rainbow, and if anyone complains say it's just reflecting God's covenant with Noah. Which would be totally allowed.

    There are other ways of showing that your class or office is a safe space. The real trouble comes if they need to our kids to keep their jobs.

    Good. The more, the merrier. I was somewhat amazed earlier this month to learn of the many, many countries that have legalized same-sex marriage and made it easier for transgender people to legally correct their genders without surgeries. I had no idea that these two lists of countries outnumbered those that have helpful abortion laws.

    But, yeah. The more states and countries that can pass adoption rights for same-sex couples, the better. What I also want is more countries to actually pass laws to help the nonbinary folks.

    I mean it’s true that the constitution can’t be changed during martial law. But it’s a good step for the future. Whenever that may be.

    Also while many in Ukraine want the same legal rights for LGBT I think the real reason the government is talking about it and will probably take action on it is because they want to look as progressive as possible for the EU.

    still it’s a great thing that should have happened a long time ago. More rights for more people and if you want to spin it for a more conservative person who still doesn’t like Russia in Ukraine. It’s spiting Russia as you know they will absolutely hate this.

    Also this was the dumbest thing ever. Banning men on men sex is the pinnacle of stupidity already. But they actually only had gay relations banned. If you were a women and loved another women and wanted to have sexual relations with said women that was totally legal. Just weird.

    While this small step is still good on the other hand they are making it pretty clear that they don’t want legal marriage. But at least it’s not illegal anymore.

    Taiwan is still the only country in Asia with gay marriage.

    This is a frightening read of a thread. It's the weaponization of social media and user data into another tentacle of the "get back in the closet" push currently unfolding on the right.

    It was a mostly good thing when it first got started but yeah it's become a monument of why we can't have good things.

    The monetized and unregulated Internet is definitely bad, especially when social media companies promote the most extreme and outrageous content in order to drive profits engagement, leading content that was once acknowledged as extreme and outrageous by anyone with a brain, to now be considered mainstream.

    That aspect aside I think the Internet has been a very good thing.

    I’m starting to wonder if authoritarian left governments have the right idea regarding Internet regulation.

    I dunno. The most obvious example of that would be China. I don't think the type of behavior outlined above would be prohibited there. The LGBTQ community isn't exactly smiled upon by the Chinese government.

    Yeah, I suppose I was thinking of a non-bigoted authoritarian left government which might be hypothetical at this point (although I may be wrong about that).

    The mistake wasn't the internet, it was allowing everyone access to it. People are the problem. Usually are when it comes to technology.

    In the end it all goes back to cultural acceptance. Authoritarian governments, be they right or left, still rely on some measure of popular support however small to exist. Vilifying LGBTQ is low-hanging fruit to that end in most places still to this day. Until that changes a heavily regulated vs unregulated internet is largely moot.
