Push for reverse sexual orientation discrimination

EDITOR, The Tribune.

MEMBERS of the LGBTQ+ community in The Bahamas seem to have a sense of entitlement and an us against them mentality.

This is what I gathered from the interaction between Prime Minister Philip Brave Davis and an LGBTQ+ member at the University of The Bahamas, as was reported by The Tribune.

To the members of the Progressive Liberal Party administration, no national development plan will succeed without God’s blessing. I know that the word “sin” is taboo among members in the academia fraternity and the political directorate looking to bend over backwards to appease the US, Canada and Great Britain. For too many politicians while crafting policies, God is an afterthought.

The LGBTQ+ member took umbrage that his community was not specifically mentioned in Davis’ blueprint for change. Then again, Davis, from what I gathered, did not specifically mention the heterosexual community either. So, what’s the point, especially since the LGBTQ+ person stated that many of his colleagues are working in the current administration?

By seeking to get the Davis administration to single out his community, the LGBTQ+ member was essentially calling for his group to receive preferential treatment. Any move to meet this irrational demand would automatically lead to the perception that the government is engaging in reverse sexual orientation discrimination against heterosexual Bahamians, who make up the overwhelming majority of the electorate.

If this administration feels the need to pander to the LGBTQ+ demographic, with little regard to the evangelical church, then it will do so to its own political peril.

I don’t see heterosexuals flaunting their sexuality in public. Why do members of the LGBTQ+ community always feel the need to do so? Bahamian homosexuals need to stop playing the victim.

Wtf is this nonsense? Nobody’s seeking special treatment, just equal treatment. Why would the heterosexual community be mentioned as it’s implicit that this is the vast majority of people in question? If the heterosexual community was in danger by simply existing they might merit special mention.

Mr. Evans, if you don’t see heterosexuals “flaunting their sexuality” in public you must never leave your house. I’m sure two men holding hands for you counts as “flaunting sexuality”, an act that can get people beaten or killed here. This is where the need arises to protect a persecuted minority.

Also, there is no such thing as “reverse sexual orientation discrimination” just as there is no reverse racism, it’s just discrimination and racism. Hopefully the underrepresented straight people will be able to hold hands and socialise safely in public without fear of retribution from your imaginary gay agenda.

Frankly, some of us in the KVTZO- community find the constant 'noise' being made by a few in the LGBTQ+ community to be a little over-the-top.
