Your belief is irrelevant. You, Zigg, and Brainster, can't articulate how self-id is an actual issue here, on this subject. You're all using it to attack people you hate, even if those people were just the subject of a terror attack.

Giving pass to political violence, as has become mainstream GOP views in the US. 'Don't do it, but I understand if you do, wink wink'.

Translation: You don't care about it - you give it a pass so long as your tribe are not the ones on the receiving end!

100% nailed it

This is exactly the same as those who, after a bunch of Muslims are murdered in a mosque (as happened in my country), will loudly declare that it wouldn't have happened of they were back in their own country where they belonged.. Effectively, Zig, Brainster and Warp12 appear to hold the view that since the victims were LGBTQ+ that they have to shoulder some of the responsibility for what happened to them, i.e. if they weren't who they were, this would not have happened to them.

Of course, they are very careful to use codes and dog-whistles when they express these views, but I having read hundreds of their posts over the time I have been here, I have zero doubt this these are the views they hold.

Some don't even bother with dog whistles anymore.
