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.

Has the Future Already Been Forgotten? A Post-2007 Transgender Legal History Told Through the Eyes of the Late, (Rarely) Great Employment Non-Discrimination Act

The article is now available on the website of the William & Mary Journal of Women and the Law.  Please read before all of the pro-HRC revisionist crap is shoveled into officially-approved discourse this fall.

Has the Future Already Been Forgotten

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!

Memo to the Washington Blade

DOJ nixes request to halt order against trans student protections

The time has come to officially retract the (even-in-2012-nonsensical) position espoused in:

Trans Americans enjoy robust bias protections

If you want to regain some credibility, you’ll allow me to write the retraction op-ed.

40 Days ‘Til Jan. 20, 2017

I’m still waiting for my ENDA, Joe.

When the History of What Was the United States of America is written, the Final Chapter Will Read:

While they slept – either comatose from the L-Tryptofan of Iraq War (profiteering) engorgement and the oxycontin of trickle-down christianist sham economics that harmed the very disenfranchised white supremacists it had been sold to as a cure for all ills, or latently anencephalous via ‘reality’ television tales of fake lives grounded in substanceless nonachievement – the bear that Ronald Reagan had warned them about entered their homes and devoured them all. But it was not a communist bear; instead, aided by the most diseased monster that multiple American immoralities could cobble together into one clown, it was a bear amped up on the very capitalistic economic steroid that Reagan died believing saved the world by selling…

to a Russian bear.
