From Milo Yiannopoulos’s Dangerous: On gays and conservatives

On being gay: “In my mind, I play the role gays were always meant to in polite society: I test the absolute limits of acceptability. The social and religious convictions I represent do not map onto the norms of nihilism and self-esteem peddled by social-justice warriors (SJWs) and progressives since the 1960s. But they have set me, and my army of fans, free” (p. 11)

On being conservative: “I look and dress and behave as though I should have safe, MTV friendly feminist opinions. But I don’t. I am the Ken doll from the underworld. Social taboos for the past fifteen years have all come from the progressive left. They’re a hideously ugly army of scolds who want to tell you how to behave. Libertarians and conservatives are the new counter-culture.” – Dangerous, p. 11

Is he onto something? Have young conservatives lost the dorky look? Have they become fun?

    I don’t agree with Milo’s lifestyle. but his book is a really useful introduction and exposé about the Progressive push through social media and popular culture. It is aimed at younger readers, so some people might find his breezy (and very well documented) style a little grating.

    Being gay or hetero is not as important as being a man of principle, and for that, I respect and salute him.
