This op-ed by Elliot Siamonga repeats a litany of tired homophobic tropes.
LGBTQI+ Identities: "homosexuality" (abstract)
Journalistic Issues: Journalistic approach shows clear bias, moralizing, fear mongering, sensationalizing, prejudice, ridicule, etc., Language/terminology is negative/discriminatory/dehumanizing/, LGBTQI+A voices missing entirely (zero), Negative myths/stereotypes are reinforced/perpetuated, Research/context is only false or negative, and Visuals/photos are affirming and relevant
It is full of biased language and framing. Many of its characterizations are disingenuous.
