Revolutions are rarely, if ever, neat, and tidy.

Just ask Dee Snider – the aging singer and songwriter best known for performing with “Twisted Sister,” the heavy-metal band of the 1970s and 1980s.

Although a self-proclaimed advocate of the LGBT movement, the rocker was recently uninvited from a San Francisco “pride” parade after he came out against mutilating and drugging sexually confused children.

Writing on Facebook, the 68-year-old singer stated:

“I was not aware the Transgender community expects fealty and total agreement with all their beliefs and any variation or deviation is considered ‘transphobic.’”

He then added:

“I’ve recently stated I do not believe young children are ready to decide their gender allocation,” he wrote. “I believe their choices should be supported and accepted by their parents, but I do not think kids have the mental capabilities to make rational, logical decisions on things of a magnitude that will affect them for the rest of their lives.”

So is the Twisted Sister singer suggesting parents should still go along with their children’s irrational and illogical thinking?

Speaking with Fox News Digital, Snider seemed to clarify his comments.

“I think irresponsible parenting is the norm these days rather than the exception. I’m amazed sometimes at just the missteps, and there are things that seem so obvious and yet some parents just don’t seem to get it. We’re all making mistakes here but as a parent there are certain things that you come to know, and one thing you come to know is that your kids don’t know everything when they’re in elementary school. They don’t know everything when they’re in junior high school. They don’t know everything when they’re in high school.”

Dee Snider is right that children are ill-equipped to make life-altering decisions. This is just one of the reasons why God gives us parents. But moms and dads are not supposed to “affirm” dangerous and destructive behaviors, especially actions that lead to a lifetime of misery and regret.

It would seem Snider’s seeming contradiction was driven by the illogic of LGBT sympathizers. In the movement, acceptance is considered one of its highest ideals – so of course parents should “accept” their children when they’re sexually confused, yes? And by that faulty logic, by accepting them, taking puberty blockers or having surgery is the logical next move.

Twisted logic? Yes.

The “twisted” mess we’re in is the consequence of “accepting” the sinful and dangerous and celebrating and normalizing it. The Christian parent of a sexually confused child should not “accept” their confusion – they should love them, pray for them, and help them through it. These approaches are not mutually exclusive.

It’s good that Dee Snider realizes the dangers of allowing children to mutilate themselves – but he still seems to be missing the fact that it’s his and others support of the LGBT agenda that have taken us to this dangerous and destructive stage in the sexual revolution.

I grew up hearing a lot about Dee Snider, primarily because we went to the same high school on Long Island, though years apart. Admittedly, I never understood the allure. With his long-hair, eye shadow and lipstick, he was about as far from my world and worldview as possible.

Even years later, Baldwin High School students of my era still spoke glowingly of Snider and his band, whose music was all about championing rebellion, hence their popular song, “We’re Not Gonna Take it.”

“I wanted to write an anthem for the audience to raise their fists in the air in righteous anger,” reflected Snider in a 2018 interview.

It now seems a growing majority, Dee Snider included, are finally raising their fists to say ‘enough is enough’ – but is there time enough to untangle the twisted logic of the revolution the radicals have unleashed?
