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.)

And the Withdrawal Will be Robust!

Due to “Administration-Related Changes,” the EEOC May Withdraw From a Trans Rights Case

The 2016 Election Has Not Even Happened Yet, But 2017 Is Already 2007: The Next Generation

For in 2017, Gay, Inc. will have its trans Robert Traynham:

“Incrementalism is how policy gets done while other people are whining about incrementalism,” she told BuzzFeed News. “We have made it an have made an article faith over the past few years that if a bill lacks public accommodations, it’s useless. That’s not true.”

Actually, given the degree to which “she” is saying something isn’t true that all functioning brains know to be true, it looks more like Gay, Inc. will have its own Kellyanne Conway and trans Robert Traynham all rolled up into one.

Who is “she”?

Who can sell out her community in a single soundbite?

Who can act commit apologism for Gay, Inc’s genocidal anti-trans woman hiring policies with a single e-mail?

But one of the country’s leading transgender advocates, Mara Keisling, the executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality, says that if they want to help transgender people in Pennsylvania, they need to embrace the protections transgender people can get in housing and employment.

But you already knew that, right?

The Human Right Scampaign has never substantively answered for its decades of transphobia, so I’m not really sure its in much of a position to call out Pence the christian reconstructionist.

The title of the article is not problematic.

But take a look at the car.

“Gay” appears on it at least five times – and one of those is for the specific line-item that has pushed the employment discrimination concerns of all LGBT people beyond the back burner and off of the stove entirely…

a specific line-item which, interestingly, as recognized via Supreme Court authority is one of the few things not directly touched by North Carolina’s HB2.

And as for T?

Well, lets just say I’m not feelin’ the love from the “Alternative Lifestyles” residuum.
