The rank and file of the Religious Right has never been opposed to sex or violence, they have only cared about who gets to do the violence, who is the victim of the violence, who gets to have sex, and who decides who has sex. As long as people like them are the ones doing the violence and getting the sex, they’re fine. It’s only when people of color, women, and others who aren’t straight white men have control over their own bodies that the rank and file get up in arms. Gamer Gaters, Sad Puppies, the Religious Right, and Men’s Rights Advocates aren’t just using the similar tactics to achieve their ends, they are all literally the same people.
