Radphlegms Tell Us This Never Happens

Bystanders cheer as women attack, beat D.C. drag performer

A male drag performer was punched, kicked, and dragged by his hair on the floor at the Manny & Olga’s pizzeria on 14th Street, N.W., about 2 a.m. Sunday by two female attackers in an incident that was captured on video taken by a bystander who cheered the attackers.

Miles DeNiro, 24, who had just performed under his drag name Heidi Glum at the nearby Black Cat nightclub, said he suffered cuts and bruises to his head and upper body and had clumps of hair pulled from his head in an encounter he described as horrifying and traumatic.

“I had ordered some food and was waiting and one girl approached me and she started touching my face, telling me I needed to blend my makeup,” DeNiro told the Washington Blade.

DeNiro, who said he identifies as a gay man, said he was dressed in drag after just having completed a performance at the Black Cat.

He said he asked the woman not to touch him and to “please back off” when another woman approached him and began calling him a “tranny” and “shouted insults at me saying I was a man and a faggot.” He said he shouted back as the name-calling escalated and one of the women slapped him in the face twice.

Hmmmm…

I guess these two must be men.

Or will the radphlegms offer up a rationalization defense that is even more racist than the remarks DeNiro unfortunately tweeted in the immediate aftermath of the aggravated assault hate crime (and, if posts I’ve seen on Facebook are accurate, has posted in other contexts about other people as well so as to likely qualify DeNiro as a racist)?

BS From BW

BS – and not just as to trans people and those LGBs who haven’t surrendered to the Gay Marriage, Inc. Borg.

Yesterday meant federal equality for those states that have (or will have) gay marriage.

And – just for those disingenuous unethical transphobes (and not just those from Maryland) who love quote trans people out of context and/or just make shit up about trans people – yesterday was a good day because  of it.

But…

Gay couples in Wisconsin? They’re still just as fucked as trans people in that state have been since 1982.

But, leave it to Bay Windows to participate in the Gay Marriage, Inc. Borg’s goal of limiting the term “equality” to “gay marriage.”

Ultimately, I actually expected nothing less.

Do Gay Papers Make Any Effort Whatsoever to Look for Irony in Their Layouts?

I Have the Utmost Confidence that Republican Texas Attorney General Greg ‘I Never Met a Voting Right That I Haven’t Wanted to Take Away From Minorities’ Abbott Will Swiftly Prosecute All of the Republican Sentators Involved

Sen. Wendy Davis told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that a fellow senator was informed by a Capitol staff member that the official voting documents had been purposefully changed to falsify the time of the vote on SB 5, the bill killed in her dramatic Tuesday night filibuster.

The discovery was important, she said, because had the vote been stamped on 6/25, rather than 6/26, the bill would have passed.

“We know it was purposeful,” she said. “I think there will be further investigation.”

Then again, I think that the word ‘news’ in “Fox ‘News'” shouldn’t have the disbelief quotes around it.

One should presume that those who made this decision actually are well aware of history – and the trapshobic parts of it that Jim Fouratt floats in.

Props to the organizers of that rally.

ALERT:  New York Times promotes sexual reasigment (sic)  as a solution to gender varinace (sic)

NY Times article: An Inconvenient Woman

I am shocked to hear a member of the Imperial Court endorsing this blatantly homophobic article written by a gagman. Yes, this is a tragic story. Murdered because he was perceived to be gay, Barry Winchell deserves all our grief and anger. As do his loved ones including a gender variant gayman self named Calpernia Sarah Addams, a professional gender illusionist.

All around us we see these attacks on gaymen who do not conform to somekind of Tom of Finland or Andrew Sullivan image, What is new is we now see gay academics and pop journalists embracing this new push to make gaymen and lesbians straight by leading them to endure painful physical body manipulation and dangerous hormonal injects to take on the topography of the conventional definition of what is male and what is female. Modern medicine is once again trying to cure us of our desire for same sex love. Our gender variant gay and lesbian population is under intense pressure to deny their homosexuality and to take all physical, hormonal and emotional steps in order to be accepted into heterosexual society.

First we had Boys Don’t Cry which told the horrific story of a 19 year old baby butch lesbian who was first raped and than murdered because she hadthe audacity to role play and act on her desire to love and have sex with women.

In death Brandon Teen became the poster girl of the reparative therapy movement (aka transgendered) for adult gender variant gaymen and women and in this guise was deemed acceptable frirst to Hollywood and than to a larger straight audience.

We are familuar with the smarmy tabloid journalism of gaywriter David France. Who could forget his bizarre book on Andrew Crispo? But does the New York Times need to sink to the level of the National Inquirer doing a Talk-ish sex/celebrity/death feature? I would hope not.

The Barry Winchell story needs to be told. How homophobia both external and more importantly internally puts at risk most homosexuals and lesbains and all gender variant individuals, How the rush to gender reassign through the wonders of modern medicine has ultimately failed … where in the sensational picture of a professional skin strutter was there any reference to the 30 year John Hopkins study of sexual reassignment and how ultimately it did not improve the self image or well being of the subjects in their program. The results of this study caused John Hopkins to cease sexual reassignment as a solution to gender dysfunction. Or where is the information on how most transsexuals who are not closeted have very few job options other than in the adult entertainment and/or sex industry… Wendy Carlos and Dr. Renee Richard’s are the exceptions.

The Imperial Court can be a powerful voice in confronting the solutions that are now being promoted by mainstream publications like the New Times and by the toxic, anti-gay/lesbian “queer” academics. Neither group is a friend of the Cherry Grove and/or Court community,

Why can’t Calpernia Sarah Addams dress, act and be himself as a gagmen, The Court sets a powerful role model of how to be who ever you want to be and to be true to your gay male identity. After all, this construction of ‘women” is totally informed by gaymale sensibility and has little in reality to do with the essence of being female.

Speak up. Help those gender variant gaymen and women who are under siege to save their pennies to mutilate their bodies to gain acceptance into the heterosexual society.

Would be most interesting in hearing each of your response to this increasingly serious attack on who we are and how we live.
