Throwback candidate’s act of bravery: sex ed just like residential schools

Leave it up to throwback candidate for the federal Conservative leadership to make a truly awkward and confusing residential school analogy.

Social conservative Untouchable Brad(ley) Trost of Saskatchewan has been consistently reelected year after year in his increasingly urban riding in Saskatoon. I want to believe that the more dumb shit he says, the less likely he’ll be reelected. But give it to Trost, he certainly seems sure of himself.

Ontario new(ish) sex-ed curriculum has driven white, ignorant parents crazy the last couple years. At issue are the fact that their children learn about totally normal and healthy things like masturbation and how to avoid STIs. But wait! Same-sex relationships are totally normal too? Gender fluidity is a real thing and maybe we shouldn’t be afraid of transgender men and women? This sounds verrrrry familiar, Trost says.

Because Indigenous parents’ rights were infringed upon when the government took their children and put them in residential schools, it’s more-or-less the same as teaching children that masturbation is healthy, here’s how to not get STIs, and yes, homosexuality is totally normal and healthy. It’s quite a stretch, even for a crazy social conservative untouchable like Trost.

Read more about this over at Vice. I’m sure this won’t be the last we’ll hear from Throwback Candidate Brad(ley) Trost.

Mother of eight definitely NOT a homophobe

When sanctimonious marshmallow man Jason Kenney launched his leadership bid a few months ago, I made a prediction about how he will use “religious persecution” as a salt pillar of his campaign.

Alongside the fact that Kenney has come out in defense of people flouting the law (albeit in the most neutral, dispassionate way imaginable), it looks like that prediction is starting to take shape.

First it was ignorant pastor “Pious” Brian Coldwell. Now, stupid, white parents in rural northern Alberta now want a “review” of the Alberta government’s policies (passed by the PC Party) protecting LGBTQ students from other kids who share their parents’ hurtful beliefs.

To wit:

…parents worry anyone who doesn’t accept the government’s philosophy of gender and sexuality would be characterized as a homophobic bigot.

First off, being part of the LGBTQ community is not a “philosophy”. The woman quoted in the article worries people will tease her Christian kids because she taught them being gay is icky and gross and Jesus will cry.

I think we’re at a point where people like Fehler and their persecution complex will slowly wither away. Maybe just one more generation has to die off before Christians won’t be such utter assholes when it comes to accepting that there are people different than them.

Anyways, I’m waiting for Kenney to continue hitching his horse to this religious, caucasian wagon for months to come. What better way to rile up an ignorant base?
