In Brief: Erasing Marriage and Family

Queer theorists and practitioners aren’t kidding that they want a Marxist cultural revolution.

The Rainbow Mafia isn’t about building anything. It’s about destroying everything. Joy Pullman argues in her new book, False Flag: Why Queer Politics Mean the End of America, that the true goal of sexual politics is erasing marriage and family.

[The] lie is that queer people were “born this way.” The last ten years’ explosion in queer identification, coupled with social science research’s failure to find a gay gene, as well as its findings that sexuality is fluid, indicate that cannot be true. If people are “born queer,” the explosion in young people identifying as transgender simply wouldn’t be happening.

And it’s clear that identification is encouraged by social conditioning. As journalist Abigail Shrier writes in “Irreversible Damage,” “Those who teach gender ideology do not make adolescents transgender. They simply fill kids’ heads with gender options and ideology. Then, when the adolescents do experience a crisis, the heroic solution readily bobs to mind.” The multiple-hundred-fold increase in children seeking transgender mutilation coinciding with the saturation of culture in queer imagery and ideology indicates that people aren’t born queer — a piece of evidence that erases any claim to legal privileges for immutable characteristics.

The survival of Western culture depends on strong natural families and government structures that protect rather than destroy those families. In homes and institutions like schools whose authority descends from homes, culture is passed on to children authoritatively in the form of normative moral judgments, loyalties, and distinctions. When one learns both at home and in school to restrain one’s passions, it frees the soul to participate in self-government through rational thought and dialogue: logic, argumentation, and debate. This rational self-government culminates in Western culture and its highest expression, the American form of constitutionally limited government.

Sexual politics makes war against Western culture by attacking its origins in the father-headed household. Identity politics is an assault against the families who discipline their sexual relations within lifelong monogamous relationships. Its explicit goal is to overthrow Western civilization by overthrowing marriage and the families marriage naturally creates.

“Abolition of the family,” Pullman notes, comes straight from the Communist Manifesto. That’s why sexual revolutionaries are so busy “smashing the patriarchy.” Importantly, she writes:

Sexual politics’ true goal is not simply to grant government privileges to a tiny percentage of Americans who claimed discrimination — but who could have found workarounds such as powers of attorney to facilitate hospital visits between homosexual couples, or pro bono lawyers to write their wills and defend them in court. The goal was to destroy organic families as a mediating social institution that naturally limits government.
