Not Exactly News, But Worth Remembering Nevertheless

Cathy Brennan & TERFs Hate Women

I’m just sayin’…

If its Christianism, Then its Fraud

As Cristan Williams reports:

California signature gatherer caught lying to trick people into discriminating against trans children

Memo to the Forgetful

Trans people haven’t forgotten that to the left of this sign – near Winona, Minnesota – we are equal to LGBs, and have been for two decades , excepting the tiny geographical and temporal anomalies of the original versions of the Minneapolis and St. Paul gay rights ordinances, always have been.

Nor have we forgotten that to the right of it, we are not – a status quo that is so 1982.

If There is a Hell…

…then, right now, Satan is at its doorway, standing guard to make sure that Bud Adams doesn’t get in.

Even demons have some standards.

I projectile vomited yesterday when I saw a sports-oid who should know better gush with this nonsense:

The history of the NFL can’t be written without Adams…

So?

Bud Adams was an obnoxious Mitt Romney-style ‘self made’ billionaire (‘self made’ after being given a few mil to start off with by his millionaire oil thief daddy, ‘Boots’ Adams) – with a football franchise instead of a political title – who likely got a sexual thrill out of screwing his employees (and not just his football players) out of every penny he could get away with screwing them out of.

I can only imagine what sort of thrill he got out of screwing over the taxpayers of Harris County, Texas via his tantrum that resulted in the butchering of the Astrodome.

But, of course, there is no hell.

And the fact that Adams outlived Bum Phillips – if just by three days – should be all the proof that anyone should ever need to prove that there is no god.

How Can You Tell the Difference Between a Christianist and a TERF?

Essential reporting by Cristan Williams at TransAdvocate re: what all thinking people suspected were made-up claims about a trans kid in Colorado:

When the story about Jane broke, I couldn’t help but notice that conspicuously absent from the reports were any quotes by the school district, the high school, Jane or Jane’s parents. The reports only repeated PJI’s assertions. It seemed that no news outlet had bothered to fact check the claims made against this trans kid. So, I called the school’s Superintendent Rhonda Vendetti. I learned that the school did conduct an investigation and they discovered that the claims of harassment were false.

“We do have a transgender student at the high school, and she has been using the women’s restrooms. There has not been a situation. All the students of these parents who say they feel uncomfortable just about the fact that the student is allowed to go into the restrooms at the high school, into the stalls – they don’t believe that that’s appropriate, so that’s where it stems from. There has not been an incident of harassment, or anything that would cause any additional concern.”

Shortly after Vendetti’s statements came to light, several media sources took down their stories and/or recanted and apologized to Jane. After the results of the investigation proved [anti-constitutionist, christianism-pushers Pacific Justice Institute]’s claims to be false, PJI changed their story. Instead of claiming that Jane was doing something to harass people, they asserted that Jane’s existence constituted harassment. The statement asserted that the mere presence of a transgender person is both “harassing” and “intimidating” to non-transgender (cisgender) people.

So…

How can you tell the difference between a christianist and a TERF?

No, seriously…

I’m asking.

Because, as of right now, I don’t see one.
