The attempt to stamp out other people’s identities as they don’t comply with one’s own group’s style of dress or adult behaviour in the bedroom is a fascist tendency.
On Saturday in Hyde Park North, a group of Christian fascists rallied against queer identities, under the distorted premise that their existence is a threat to their children: the same paranoid line One Nation’s Mark Latham has been pushing on schools acting as “gender fluidity factories”.
A couple of thousand Christian Lives Matter supporters gathered in the park, seemingly unaware that, unlike the Black people in the US and Australia who have rallied under the banner of Black Lives Matter, all-powerful, majority-religion Christians in Australia are hardly a persecuted minority.
Although the pro-trans rights demonstrators weren’t calling for identities differing to their own to be wiped out, rather they were expressing their human right to be who they are and were pushing back against unfounded claims that queer communities pose any distinct threat to children.
