I think it would have been more edgy to say "Islam is right about gays."
BUT I can see how that would have crossed the line into inciting violence against a sexual minority, and could be an actual crime.
There was a talk-show in Finland where the audience asked an Imam about what Islam says about gays. After trying to avoid answering the question directly (saying things like "It's banned but nobody hardly ever gets caught, so who cares about the punishment"), he was hard-pressed into saying that the punishment Islam degrees for gays is death.

"Help help, my house is on fire! ... Oh, a bunch of muscular men with oversized helmets and long thick hoses appear, all acting like it's their job to save the world, like women really needed help from men! That's, like, so ridiculously phallic. Isn't there a way to do this with less toxic masculinity?"
Also, haven't we seen this "There's this thin and pretty girl, who is perfect in every way and much better than the men at doing everything, who is really important and saves everyone" -cliché enough times already? Do we really need more?
"But haven't we seen enough times how men do the same?"
No, because like even kids know, who comes to save the day if there is a fire? Men.
Who comes to save the day if there's a bad guy breaking into your home? Men.
Who comes to stop a terrorist from killing people? Men.
Who are the one who risk their lives to save a random child from drowning? Men.
Who are the ones climbing high up in the air constructing important pieces of infrastructure? Men.
Why? Because men want to be the hero, while women want to be wealthy and popular. If there is a crisis, it is only realistic that you tell the story of the men who are trying to fix it. Sure, you can put women cheering them on, but that's it.
Even children know that women don't do heroic stuff in real life, but call in men to do them for them. This conflict with reality is what is making this new trend in movies so very dumb.
I can't believe why it is so hard to understand the following:
NEVER INSULT YOUR CUSTOMERS AND ALWAYS SIDE WITH YOUR CUSTOMERS AGAINST WHOEVER IS ATTACKING THEM!
This applies to every singly business and industry. And these companies must understand that you don't have to insult the customers even directly or intentionally. Implied insult (or being silent when others - like reporters - insult your customers) can be just as bad.
Nokia collapsed because its new CEO told everyone that their products were sub-par and much worse than anything their competitors put out, basically implying that anyone who buys Nokia's products is dumb.
In many ways Nokia's products were indeed worse than their competitors' products, yet Nokia's phones were also superior in many ways, like battery life and durability. Nokia had phones that you needed yo charge only once every 10 days! Could you imagine if Apple created an iPhone you needed to charge every 10 days? That would be revolutionary.
My 6110 fell from my pocket on top of a stairs of maybe 50 steps made of concrete, impacting the stairs maybe 10 times, and escaped with only scratches. My wife has a third screen on her iPhone because it keeps shattering from falling a distance of three feet.
But after the CEO told everyone their customers were dumb for valuing battery life and durability over user experience and apps, people stopped buying their phones almost overnight.
You wouldn't say that we shouldn't be prejudices against WW2 Nazis, even though "not all Nazis killed Jews". Seeming to support a sick and barbaric supremacist ideology that is routinely used to kill innocent people, is usually enough to show you probably are an asshole, even though you might never personally do anything.
If I were born a Muslim and wouldn't want to be profiled as a terrorist, I would stop being a Muslim and change my name. Changing one's name is not a big deal - everyone did it a hundred years ago when they moved to the US.
A quote from Carl Marx:
"Let us consider the actual, worldly Jew – not the Sabbath Jew, as Bauer does, but the everyday Jew. Let us not look for the secret of the Jew in his religion, but let us look for the secret of his religion in the real Jew. What is the secular basis of Judaism? Practical need, self-interest. What is the worldly religion of the Jew? Huckstering. What is his worldly God? Money. Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of man – and turns them into commodities…. The bill of exchange is the real god of the Jew. His god is only an illusory bill of exchange…. The chimerical nationality of the Jew is the nationality of the merchant, of the man of money in general.[...] The Jew has emancipated himself in a Jewish manner, not only because he has acquired financial power, but also because, through him and also apart from him, money has become a world power and the practical Jewish spirit has become the practical spirit of the Christian nations. The Jews have emancipated themselves insofar as the Christians have become Jews. [...] In the final analysis, the emancipation of the Jews is the emancipation of mankind from Judaism."
It's no coincidence that the left has issues with Israel. Hatred of the Jews is baked right into the ideology, by the maker itself. And since hatred of the Jews is also baked into Islam, it is no wonder the left gets along so well with islamists.
Feminists 2015: "We want unisex toilets! Everything else is patriarchy!"
Feminists 2019: "We don't want the handsome man in the office to come and smell how bad our shit smells! That is patriarchy!"
"...you're looking at her right now."
Is Rubin calling Trudeau a female? 😁
That would not be inaccurate, though. Trudeau is a pussy.
I bet it will try suicide before it is an adult.
