The Real Bullies?October 6, 2018
Dear Daniel Snyder,
Over the last decade, I’m sure you have grown frustrated about the number of people who want you to change the name of the Washington Redskins. In some people’s opinion, saying the word Redskins to a Native American is just like calling an African American the N-word. As we talk about how powerful words are, have you noticed the LGBT community has been pushing our society to change the words in which we use to address each other?
There are a growing number of people who dislike being referred to as he or she. This is one reason why the transgender community is currently coming up with new gender classifications seemly every day. One question I have for the people who want to abandon traditional gender titles: What would happen if every single one of us came up with our own classification for our gender? It wouldn’t be practical to remember everyone’s unique gender title. However, the transgender community wants you and I to glaze over this and other important details about gender while we cater to a very small group of people who will get offended when someone refers to them as a male or female.
Even though I think using the name Redskins is offensive, I personally hope Daniel Snyder stands his ground as far as changing the name of his team. Why? We can’t afford to continue to enable a culture that tries to demand people to conform to their personal ideals.
I believe sooner than later just like our society will make it illegal to refer to someone as a male or female, the NFL will make you change the name of your team. Why? We are living in an ever-increasing politically correct society that will reward people for being easily offended and punish others who hold on to some type of traditional values. Once enough people get offended about the same issue, it doesn’t matter how dangerous their movement is to our society, a large group of offended people unusually gets their way.
Don’t be fooled, and if we keep giving into the LGBT community’s list of ridiculous demands, we won’t be able to recognize our society at some point. When the LGBT community asked the then-President Bill Clinton for the right to serve in the military about twenty years ago, it seemed like a small request. Very few people could have guessed in the 90s that years later the LGBT community would be fighting to make it illegal to use the terms “him or her.” Can you imagine some of the issues the LGBT community will be fighting for twenty years from now if we allow them to do things like getting rid of gender roles and titles? How are they keeping this madness going? The LGBT community does a great job in getting people outraged.
When people get outraged, they let their emotions take over, and common sense is often tossed out the window. It should be common sense for example that we can’t let people make up their own gender titles and roles. Yet, the transgender community has successfully gotten people to focus on the typical transgender’s struggles and not how their movement is rapidly destroying our society. How do you get people outraged? You must get people to think something is outrageous. The speed it now takes to change people’s mind about something that has been a normal part of a society like calling someone a “him or her,” has been incredible.
A growing number of people are joining the “angry mob” who wants to push tradition out of our society because we are growing too lazy to think for ourselves.
As the LGBT community does a brilliant job in getting people overly emotional about their cause, we need to think about how changing values that have been in place for thousands of years is affecting our society. Keep in mind that the transgender community doesn’t have a reasonable argument that we should eliminate “him and her” from our vocabulary other than the fact that traditional gender titles are offending their community.
For the transgender lifestyle to become normal, the LGBT community and their allies had to help to create a culture where people are not only easily offended but fail to come to logical conclusions. Have you noticed that our society doesn’t have civil debates anymore? People pretty much yell at each other when there is a disagreement. Yelling at people who you disagree with has never solved anything. Because we have a growing number of agreements that lack merit, people yell instead.
Unfortunately, easily offended people/victims tend to believe an argument that is conveyed with passion over an intelligent one. When emotions mostly guide a person, he or she will be willing to overlook certain facts. The LGBT community’s agenda has gotten this far not because their movement has made sense for our country, but because they are extremely passionate about gaining rights.
I fear that we are moving toward a society where we won’t engage in intellectual discussions about relevant issues anymore, but we will keep caving to the loudest people in the “room.”
Mr. Snyder, so far, you have been successful in keeping the name Redskins. Yet, all the people who are offended over the use of the word Redskins must continue to get more people offended. If enough people get offended, you will have no choice but to change the name. In the same vein, the only way we are going to stop the LGBT community from completely changing our society is to beat them at their own game. How? We’ve got to help get people offended about how the LGBT community is trying to change the moral foundation of our nation.
Maybe, it is time to start yelling about the importance of traditional family values. Remember that whoever yells the loudest, typically wins the debate. The Church has not been yelling loud enough. I guess this why the LGBT community has been winning a whole lot lately.
