Groupthink is not something to be proud of

June’s month-long LGBT Pride celebrations remind us that groupthink is not something to be proud of.

While the LGBT community tries to convince people that it is marginalized and oppressed, the reality is that with each generation, more and more adults identify as members of the LGBT community.

A 2023 Gallup poll, for example, found that among Generation Z, 22.3% identify as LGBT. Compare that to Millennials, 9.8% of whom identify as LGBT, and Generation X, with just 4.5%. And yet, as more young people seek to express their sexuality more publicly, the message of the LGBT agenda has changed rapidly.

In the past, the message was that everyone should live their private lives in complete freedom. But now that the culture is becoming more accepted, the message has changed. Far too many members of the LGBT community not only want acceptance, they want forced celebration.

And as the LGBT community grows, so does the incessant need for celebration.

This diary is not just for adults. Younger generations are intentionally being exposed to diverse sexualities at a significantly younger age than in the past. From transgender story times in libraries to children’s drag shows to gender identity lessons for elementary school students, the LGBT agenda has become very public and widespread.

It’s no wonder, then, that the number of LGBT-identifying Gen Zers is increasing. Children are prepared to become part of the community, often without their parents’ consent.

The new message of the LGBT agenda is that expressing one’s sexuality out loud (often in vulgar ways) is something to be proud of. And it starts with the younger generations, because to end all stigma within the community, children must grow up continually being desensitized to this stigma.

But there is nothing courageous about imposing a sexual identity on vulnerable children in primary school. There is nothing exhilarating about seeing trans-identified women dancing provocatively in the streets of a pride parade. And there is certainly nothing respectable about encouraging others to praise this kind of behavior while hiding behind allegations of victimization.


The sexual agenda promoted within the LGBT community, particularly among children, is disrupted. And decadent celebrations of displaying sexuality aren’t private or personal – not when everyone has to do it.

Groupthink within the LGBT community could lead some to believe that they are oppressed and must keep a record of homes in their neighborhood without a pride rainbow flag. And this month, they could be proud of it. But those who advocate keeping elementary school children out of conversations about sexual identity and encouraging true individuality in students know better.
