Why now? The US has never at any point been more gay friendly. For being 3-4% of the population gays wield a ridiculous amount of political and social power.

You have to remember that to most Brits the US seems a dangerously violent place. Pretty much all the people I know in England find US murder rates quite scary (nearly 4 times the UK rates). In addition, the latest figures available show that US law enforcement officers kill people at a rate that is 380 times that of their UK equivalents - that is, US citizens are very much less safe from their own police than UK citizens, and since these killings are rarely classified as murder this means that crime-related death rates in the US are huge compared to their UK equivalents. Similarly, other violent crime rates are higher in the US than in the UK - for example, for the most recent year that I could find data, rape rates in the US were 70% higher than in the UK. Although I wasn't able to find a list giving statistics on violence against LGBT people, the number of cases listed in Wikipedia for the US for this decade is nearly 5 times the equivalent number for the UK (adjusting for population). Though this isn't statistically robust, it is certainly suggestive. Heck, even road traffic deaths in the US are three times the UK rate. To most British citizens, the United States seems a more dangerous and violent place than home, because it is.

UK citizens should consider how these statistics change if you're a tourist or otherwise normal individual, and you're not a gang member, not living in the ghetto, and don't come from a broken family or otherwise live in destitution. The demographics of the US population are very different from those in the UK, and much of the crime comes from those demographics (especially black-on-black crime, most of it related to the situations I referred to above).

You know it is shallow SJW virtue signaling when there is no consistency.

I'm not quite sure what you mean here. Could you explain further, please. (My next response will be delayed, as it's bedtime here!)

What I am saying is that the decision to warn LGBT Brits about visiting North Carolina (= being seen to boycott/ harass North Carolina) and yet not warn British LGBT citizens about visiting Muslim majority areas in Britain is HYPOCRISY.

Compare one and two. 1) NC does not permit people with penises using women's bathrooms -> That is their "crime" here that some civil servants now want to grand stand over. *Rah Rah! *

2) Muslim-majority areas in Britain are not just intolerant of gays but are literally advocating violence and death for gays. crickets

Britain has no leg to stand on as a nation to warn gays about bathrooms in NC when it has Muslim Areas where acting out homosexual will get you beaten or killed.

**Muslims in Britain have zero tolerance of homosexuality, says poll **

Policy Exchange: 61% of British Muslims want homosexuality punished

Police 'covered up' violent campaign to turn London area 'Islamic'

Police have been accused of “covering up” a campaign of abuse, threats and violence aimed at “Islamicising” an area of London.

Last year, a mob of 30 young Muslims stormed a local gay pub, the George and Dragon, beating and abusing patrons. Many customers of the pub told The Sunday Telegraph that they have been attacked and harassed by local Muslim youths. In 2008 a 20-year-old student, Oli Hemsley, was left permanently paralysed after an attack by a group of young Muslims outside the pub. Only one of his assailants has been caught and jailed.

Twenty-five areas around Britain have large Muslim populations, including Bradford, Dewsbury, Leicester and Luton. We want to turn them all into Islamic Emirates, where the excesses of Western civilisation are not tolerated.’
