What is happening is a campaign of desensitisation. The object is to desensitise us to explicit violence, horror and sexual material. What we need to ask is - which specific groups would have a keen interest in doing this, and why?
One obvious candidate is the LGBTQWERTY lobby. The biggest obstacle they have always faced is the Yuck Factor. To any normal person homosexuality has always been vaguely disgusting. That’s not to say that normal people don’t feel compassion for homosexuals. They simply feel (undoubtedly correctly) that homosexuals would be better off weaning themselves off their self-destructive and unnatural lifestyle. Anal sex in particular has a very high disgust factor. In order fully to implement their agenda the LGBTQWERTY lobby needs to overcome this perfectly natural revulsion. That’s where desensitisation comes in.
It’s important to realise that in order for this strategy to succeed it is not necessary to expose people to explicit images of homosexual sex. Of course the ultimate objective is to do just that - to rub the noses of normal people in homosexual sex. To do so at this stage however would be counter-productive. The shorter-term objective is to accustom people to depravity and degradation in general. This means desensitising people to everything that would normally provoke horror and disgust. Once people take disgusting things for granted it will be easy to persuade them to celebrate sexual abnormality.
There is another group with a less obvious but nonetheless very strong interest in desensitising the public - feminists. Nothing matters more to feminists than “abortion rights” - nothing is more precious than a woman’s right to murder her unborn baby. Abortion also produces feelings of horror and disgust in normal people. The more you think about abortion the more horrifying the idea becomes. But if people can be desensitised to horror, violence and squalor then eventually abortion will seem to be no big deal. If the natural response to horror and cruelty can be sufficiently dulled then even the harvesting and sale of the body parts of unborn babies (as done by Planned Parenthood in the US) will seem to be no big deal.
This toleration of violence, cruelty and crass graphic sexual content is another example of a crucial battle in the culture war being lost by conservatives because they didn’t even bother to fight the battle. They didn’t think it was important enough. As usual, they didn’t think at all.
