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?
