The Burger King publicity stunt of releasing “The Proud Whopper” and the phrase it used, “We’re all the same inside,” is yet another example of the irrational “acceptance culture” which I have written of previously. “We’re all the same inside” proposes that anatomical similarity serves as justification for actions.
The anatomical structures which are present in heterosexuals are also present in homosexuals and bisexuals. Of course, they are also present in sociopaths, psychopaths, eugenicists, etc. Now, according to the phrase “we’re all the same inside,” any action that these people take as a result of their mental state is acceptable simply because “we’re all the same inside.”
Homosexuals, bisexuals, and psychopaths are all perfectly capable of not acting in accordance with their already present mental state. This has been proven many times over. Yet the argument of “you can’t control who you are” is repeated over and over again. You can, in fact, control who you are to some extant. You can control your actions, which, in the end, is the real determining factor of who you are as a person.
