Ten Years and Three Days After Black Wednesday

As someone remarked on Twitter a few minutes ago: “I hope you know that if I see a red hat like that I’m immediately put on edge.”

HRC and its marketers must be presumed to know.

And they must be presumed to not give a damn.

What Say You, #CaitlynWho?

Something told me to trademark the phrase “I Told You So” back when I saw the Gay, Inc. reaction to my publicizing the existence of the 1979 trans-inclusive Los Angeles Civil Rights Ordinance.

Woulda, coulda, shoulda….

President Trump announced on Wednesday that the United States will no longer “accept or allow” transgender people in the United States military, saying American forces “must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory” and could not afford to accommodate them.

Yet, the military will continue to accommodate the delusions of people who believe in talking snakes, et. al.

But I digress…

Caitlyn?

That’s not his ear that you have.

And The Loser is the Fifth Doctor

In 1986 I hosted a “Caves of Androzani” party for the Texas A&M sci-fi group, MSC Cepheid Variable, when the local PBS station ran the episode (if I recall, I think I actually called it the “Peter Davison Death Party,” but I drank a lot back then.)

Some lamented the death of Peter Davison’s Doctor at the end. Many others, however, cheered.

A former Doctor Who actor has hit out at the BBC’s decision to cast Jodie Whittaker in the role, saying that the decision meant there is “a loss of a role model for boys”.

Peter Davison said she is a “terrific actress” but  that he has doubts that she is right for the role.

He said before an appearance at  at Comic-Con in San Diego: “If I feel any doubts, it’s the loss of a role model for boys who I think Doctor Who is vitally important for.”

We who cheered have been proven right.

Two Years Ago: Obergefell v. Hodges

…and then 18 months later, tens (hundreds?) of thousands of those who ramrodded the want of marriage ahead of the basic employment-centric anti-discrimination needs of all LGBTs – including those who might not be coupled – on the national civil rights agenda voted for Trump out of lower-tax greed.

Marriage Derangement Syndrome is as Marriage Derangement Syndrome does.

When Illegitimate Justice Gorsuch writes the opinion that erases marriage equality, I will laugh at every gay Republican who whines.

Fake Repeal

Legislators and Gov. Roy Cooper hailed Thursday’s HB2 repeal bill as a compromise. In fact, it is nothing of the kind.

HB142 is not a repeal of HB2.

It is merely a renaming of it.  Christianists, TERFs and Milo the Pedo continue to have everything they desire from North Carolina law (short of a literal license to kill trans people on sight.)

Well That About Wraps it Up for the ACLU

Questions for the ACLU:

Did you ask LGBTs in Alabama for their input on that?

Who the f*#% wrote it?  Barney “We had three items and there was only room for two” Frank?

If the ACLU is making this a zero-sum game, then its time to close up the constitutional shop and let #DonTheCon put his implants in our brains.

A REAL (read: non-gerrymandered-Republican-fake-majority) Congress would have the time and energy to deal with anti-LGBT and anti-Muslim concerns.  THIS Congress would like to see all members of both groups up against the wall.  Hell, thus far the only time the current Congress has had anything close to an inclination to do anything other than kneel before #DonTheCon with an open mouth has been standing up to the Puzder nomination.

ACLU: EPIC FAIL!
