Here is another egregious example of how LGBT propaganda seeks to manipulate public opinion.
Take a photo of a sad, but handsome, boy. Add a caption identifying him as gay. And here it is, the embodiment of the eternal “gay victim” myth, a victim of bullying or, in this case, expected or anticipated bullying by nasty “straights”.
The caption of this photo is: “I’m homosexual and I’m afraid about what my future will be and that people won’t like me.” It is found on the photoblog Humans of NY by a certain Brandon Stanton. And of course – as was required to make this a good news story – who but who happened to come across this photo when leisurely surfing photoblogs on the internet? Of course nobody else but Hillary Clinton, the Democrat presidential candidate with the oh-so-human and motherly touch. Immediately upon discovering this photo, she responded via Facebook: Prediction from a grown-up: Your future is going to be amazing. You will surprise yourself with what you’re capable of and the incredible things you go on to do. Find the people who love and believe in you – there will be lots of them. –H”, making sure that his reply found its way to all major newspapers around the world. Oh how lovely, how warm-hearted, how open-minded she is, full of good sentiments – just the right person for President, isn’t she?
Supposing the boy were really gay, and supposing he were really afraid of the future: then Hillary would simply have used him for her own campaign purposes, capitalizing on his suffering to win sympathy points from a very gullible audience.
But very probably the boy isn’t gay at all. Children at this age usually have no realistic understanding of what “gay” actually is, or what kind of actions it implies (unless, of course, they grow up with gay adults…). It is not unnormal for boys at some stage during puberty to feel a (not necessarily sexual) attraction for other boys, often because they still feel somewhat shy to approach the other sex. This is usually of a very transient nature, which is why it would be terribly inappropriate for any adult to confirm them in this sentiment, or to manipulate them into thinking that they are unchangeably homosexual. But in any case, the boy on the picture is not in that age.
He probably is just a sad boy, randomly photographed – and the statement the caption attributes to him is pure invention. One might as well have invented another story and added another caption. Who knows, perhaps this boy has just been told by his parents that they will divorce, a sad occurence in the lives of many children? Or maybe he has learned that his father will leave the family and move in with another man? Or, even worse, he has discovered that he is the son of a surrogacy mom, fabricated in a Russian laboratory using the “donated” egg-cells and sperms of two complete strangers? Perhaps he is just realizing that he has no real family, and that his identity will forever remain unknown to him?
Such, and many other, discoveries might make a boy cry. And we would be very interested in learning the words of consolation Hillary Clinton has to offer on such occasions…
There is nothing that couldn’t be improved… here is another photo to appeal to your compassion:
