To the editor: There is a disturbing phenomenon permeating many in the Fairbanks population that I call, for want of a better term, the “reality disconnect.” If there were a municipal water supply with fluorides added, we could conspiratorially postulate that the general population has understandable mental disorders. Or perhaps it is just the stench of the new marijuana industry that has corrupted their brain cells. Whatever the cause, the “disconnect” is serious.
The News-Miner printed front-page headlines on Sept. 26 and again on Sept. 28 concerning the LGBTQ+. You probably didn’t recognize these articles for what they are, the dark hidden side of the LGBT. Nowhere in the article do you see the term LGBT. Why not?
What do the front-page articles say? “Fairbanks HIV cases on the rise” and “State warns of HIV spread.” All cases identified men having sex with men. Smartphone apps were used to find sex partners in the majority of cases.
This tragedy is not to be made light of, but my point is this: Isn’t this the group that wants special legal status? Isn’t this the group that wants its morality to trump all others? Isn’t this the group that our school district has given unfettered access to our schoolchildren? Isn’t this the group that has added LGBT training (See News-Miner Oct. 16) to our school curriculum?
God help our innocent children, and God help those on the school board who, afflicted with this “reality disconnect,” are working to propel these children on to the News-Miner’s front page.
