Identity politics

Identity politics is something I ran into when it reached the Netherlands. It’s pathetic.

The proponents of this movement made an unlikely alliance with homophobia- and ‘islamophobia’-opponents. Meaning gay people and muslims.

Even though schizophrenia is more prevalent amongst minorities, they prefer to look down on psychiatric patients and pretend they’re all ‘lesser beings’. Well, as long as it doesn’t happen to you right? Which can happen at any moment.

And about homosexuals- I don’t think they’re all angels. Also, I prefer to keep my life simple. I understand that, scientifically, there’s a lot of nuance to be made on sexuality. However I prefer to keep my life simple and void of these complexities.

Also, people have been calling me Jesus since grade school. The fact that I speak out on the internet about religious issues is reason for some gay people to avoid me. Which is blaming me for the very things I am opposed to. It’s just discrimination and I don’t want to pretend I don’t care.

There are in fact some objectionable parts in islamic scripture - the ones they themselves promote, not mine - and practice. There is a lot going wrong in the islamic world. I am trying to fix things, but they don’t care about that either.

They don’t give a shit about me personally and personally, I don’t give a crap about them. I don’t like being called guilty of things I didn’t do.
