Just Remember: Before There Was Milo, There Was Citizen Goodstein

HB2 – and laws substantively similar to it – happen not merely because christianists have gerrymandered democracy into oblivion but because a certain element of the gay male population has succeeded in averting negative public gaze away from themselves and onto the nonexistent ‘threat’ of trans women.

A few months after the above was published, its author, David Goodstein, took control of the Advocate, turning it from a progressive (albeit still skewed toward men) publication that had a history of taking trans concerns seriously to a style rag for rich gay Republican men who had trouble deciding who to fantasize about while watching the debates between Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley.

A few months after Goodstein took control, his Advocate’s reaction to trans people standing up to  revealed ‘incremental progress’ wisdom of Minnesota LGBs who would benefit from gay-now-trans-whenever (whose chief lobbyist went on to found the Human Right Scampaign) was a childish editorial, written as a fairy tale, slamming all of those who didn’t accept the revealed ‘incremental progress’ wisdom of Minnesota LGBs who would benefit from gay-now-trans-whenever.

Constrictive homocon thought was being championed by a gay man who thought that 12-year-olds should be able to consent to sex with adults…

three years before Anita Bryant felt compelled to ‘save our children.’

Yet somehow not trans women are the problem.

Lets be honest here – and by that I mean answer this question while hooked up to a lie detector: Which are you less comfortable with – trans women in the women’s restroom or Milo Yiannopolous in the men’s room?

In your heart, you know what the answer is.
