Speechless. Interesting times.
Globalist European/U.S.-style inclusiveness-obsessed liberalism vs militant Marxist Statist puritanical edict.
I confess I don't know anything about how the Bolsheviks/USSR politburo or the Nazis of WWII felt about gay people.
It appears one of the fundamental challenges of managing a nation/culture as vast/immense as the PRC is size/magnitude. The PRC government seems to have either too much chaos lack of control (as evidence says happened at the Wuhan bio-weapons lab where the '19 Plague started). On the other hand the vise-like totalitarian control of a militant police-state (Tienanmen Square, Uighurs).
Neither extreme approach seems very effective governance (or what Machiavelli would have frankly called "ruling").
Emperor Xi may not be riding a tiger so much as trying to steer a rampaging elephant. Sort-of like trying to direct the course of a hurricane.
'Recall the inside joke movie maker Mel Brooks put into his Get Smart T.V. series - 'heard that Buddhists criticize Western culture for being in a state of, "total chaos or trying to achieve total control". He named two mythical enemy spy agencies K.A.O.S. and C.O.N.T.R.O.L.
The U.S. government seems to be getting more like that - too much destructive chaos or too much of equally-destructive extreme control.
We in the U.S. seem to have our own Maxwell Smart in the White House.
Chief:(wide-eyed, horrified) MAX!!! You just botched the pullout of U.S. forces from Afghanistan!! Thousands of good people have needlessly been tortured, kidnapped, raped, murdered!
Joseph Biden:(abashed) Oh! Sorry about that, Chief!!
