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.

I Wonder…

…if all of the gay concern trolls who are soooooooooooooooooooo worried about TERFs being no-platformed will express the same concern about the in-progress no-platforming of Dolce and Gabbana?

After all…

The backlash to the antigay, antifamily remarks of gay designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana has been swift, with a call to boycott the Italian fashion designers’ products picking up steam on social media, along with some high-profile celebrity support.

Gabbana has since taken to Instagram with more than 50 posts on Sunday to repeatedly mock the boycott and attack Elton John as a “facist,” claiming he’s squashing “freedom of thought” and that it’s the designers who promote “tolerance” of other ideas, even saying the call for a boycott of D&G is as outrageous as would be a theoretical call to boycott John to protest his children.

Don’t Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have as much right to belch out their traditionalism as TERFs have to vomit out their essentialism?

Apparently, Republicans Only Believe in SOME Kinds of Tort Reform

You know, like eviscerating the ability of people who suffer real, actual injuries to sue (even after having gotten rich off of such suits), while on the other hand….

A bill introduced in the Texas House today would award cisgender students who shared a bathroom with a trans student $2,000, in addition to legal fees, for any ‘mental anguish’ the cisgender student suffered.

Rumor has it that the devil is in the details, as the specific language of the bill specifies that, despite only being applicable to Texas, all legal fees are to be split between Barney Frank and a well-known exterminationistic payday-lender-defender lawyer in Maryland.

That last paragraph may be sarcastic…

or it might be appropriate.

I Wonder…

How many of the concern trolls who are defending trans-exterminationistic TERFs over ‘no-platform’-ing have no problem with deploying government authority to outlaw ‘reparative therapy’?

I’m just askin’….

But I’m just expectin’ no fessin’ up.

I’m Shocked – Shocked, I Say! – That a Gay Website That Often Trolls for Traffic by Complaining About the Over-Sensitivity of Trans People Would Complain About This

First, from Shillerico’s John Becker:

Legendary radio host Garrison Keillor cracked a gay joke on last weekend’s episode of A Prairie Home Companion:

Well Jim and John had to share a room one night in a hotel.
Jim said “I snore so bad I doubt you’ll sleep that well.”
And John kissed him on the cheek; he said “Sweetheart, it’s alright.”
Jim went and sat in a chair and he stayed awake all night.

(Click here for audio. The joke is at 34:57.)

What do you think?

Now the real punch line:


For This, I’ve Got Five

From Daily Kos:

 An Arkansas county clerk’s office has found a case of voter fraud that could affect the outcome of an upcoming election. Candidates for state office must be eligible to vote in the state, and:

Pulaski County Clerk Larry Crane on Tuesday canceled the voter registration for [Republican candidate for attorney general] Leslie Rutledge of Little Rock after confirming that the former Gov. Huckabee legal aide is registered to vote in Washington, D.C., and possibly Virginia.

Rutledge is claiming political motivation for her loss of Arkansas voter registration:

“Taking a person’s right to vote away from them, as Democrat Larry Crane has done, is reprehensible and a desperate attempt to help the campaign of a Democratic candidate who lacks the experience and good judgment to protect the citizens of our great state.”

Take a minute to howl with laughter.  A Republican candidate bitterly complaining about how reprehensible it is to take away a person’s right to vote.

Countdown to her additionally blaming this on Eric Holder, Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, Al Jazeera, Al Jolson and who knows who all in 3…2…1….

Male Christianist or Radphlegm Lesbian?

Here’s someone from one of those categories pontificating on trans people:

There are people who respect transgender rights. And there are people who think you should all be put in a camp. That’s me.

Here’s one from the other:

[S]ome of us wish they would ALL be dead

Its so hard to tell the difference, eh?
