George H.W. Bush

The “H” stands for “Horton.”

The “W” stands for “Willie.”

And they will continue to do so – forever.

The first faux Texan from the first family of political fraud to slither into the White House signed this into law:

ADA511

We all know that hell is a mythological concept created by rich religionists to scare the poor into worshiping not a god or gods but rich religionists….

But based solely on the above noted aspects of George H.W. Bush’s life, I’ll contribute to the construction of hell (or a reasonable facsimile thereof) if I could be sure that that is where his eternal home would be.

(Oh, and let us not forget Clarence Thomas.)

The Next “Silenced” TERF Academic Will Be The First

If your trans-exterminationistic cries of having been “silenced” are emanating from a tenured position in academia that equally- and/or better-qualified trans women were never even considered for, then you just might be an over-privileged bigot.

Conservatives Are Really, Really, Really Upset That People Have Noticed That Lisa Littman’s Anti-Trans Propaganda Is Just The Latest Generation of Trans-Exterminationist Junk Science

From Think Progress:

Opponents of LGBTQ equality are in a tizzy this week, claiming Brown University is “censoring” a study about transgender kids. That research, however, is pure junk science designed to make parents feel justified in rejecting their children’s gender identity.

There is nothing that distinguishes ROGD [rapid onset gender dysphoria, so-called] from the diagnostic criteria that already exists for gender dysphoria in children except parents’ perception that it has come about quite suddenly. Not coincidentally, it is only parents who wish to disabuse their children of the possibility that they are transgender who have observed ROGD and insist upon its validity.

One might think that a researcher looking to understand or substantiate ROGD would actually find ways to work directly with the children who supposedly experienced it to document their experiences. Or perhaps one could simply reach out to a large swath of families with transgender kids to try to assess what distinguished supposed cases of ROGD from others. But [Lisa] Littman did none of that. All she did was anonymously survey parents from the exact same anti-trans online parent groups that invented the concept (4thwavenow.com, Transgendertrend.com, and Youth YouthTransCriticalProfessionals.org), codifying their totally bogus myth in the guise of a scientific study.

Doubtlessly, TERFs, Alice Dreger and Michael Bailey (as if there is any real daylight between all of them and other right-wing conservatives) are in a tizzy as well.

And lets not forget the neo-Bailey herself:

PLOS One and Brown have backed away from her study, [but] Littman has stood by it. She has insisted that it’s a “descriptive study” consistent with other such studies that are “a first description of a new condition or population.”

I guess “descriptive study” is the latest euphemism that will allow someone clothed in the raiments of academic tenure that trans women are never considered for no matter our qualifications to get away with describing a handful of anecdotes derived from a few trips to Chicago-area drag bars as “The Science of Gender-Bending and Transsexualism.”

Who the hell made Facebook the arbiter of political speech, you ask?

Well, you personality-devoid buffoon, you attempted to be hip by using the #1A hashtag, but I’ll go ahead and give you a full answer: The First Amendment to the United States Constitution – you know, the Supreme Law of the Land (that’s right – THAT’S the Supreme Law of the Land, NOT your Bible!) – makes all private entities masters of their own decisions as to whether or not to speak.

And wasn’t that YOUR position when it came to christian-owned Hobby Lobby?

I guess a different standard applies to entities controlled by people with names such as Zuckerberg.

Yes, on a sleepy Sunday morning in July, I discovered yet another reason to hate Sen. Rafael “Ted” Cruz (R-Calgary): He forced me to say something in defense of Mark Zuckerberg.
