Amy Coney Barrett Slammed for using the term “sexual preference”

October 14th, 2020: Amy Coney Barrett, US Supreme Court hopeful, made the mortal sin of using the term “sexual preference” in her senate hearing. Barrett was later called out and rightfully so, by Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, a straight woman speaking on behalf of, but without any actual ties to or apparent consultation with the LGBTQ community. The term “sexual preference” as used by Judge Barrett, has been used by homophobic neonazis who would like nothing more to strip away the rights of LGBTQ people such as Joseph Biden and Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Joe Biden, if elected president, has even advocated for “packing the court,” expanding the Supreme Court, likely to stack it with other like minded fascists.

President Trump, on the other hand, has long been a champion of LGBTQ rights, as shown with his legislative history. By preventing transgender people from enlisting in the millitary, he has saved them a dangerous career path waging wars and destabilizing nations. President Trump has additionally placed further support for the LGBTQ community, removing other mentions of terms which might potentially be considered offensive. Since the day he took office, the Trump administration has been removing all sorts of LGBTQ references from government websites and legislation, making sure nobody can get offended by rapidly changing terms in the future!

Webster’s Dictionary, the private corporation responsible for being the overwhelming authority on all things in the world, changed their definition of “sexual preference” to be an offencive replacement to the term “sexual orientation” following this incident. We will see if the bigots at Wikipedia will change “sexual preference” from redirecting to “sexual orientation.”
