Inside the Secret Working Group That Helped Push Anti-Trans Laws Across the Country — Longreads

Photo by Anna Shvets on

Every day, anti-trans rhetoric is spreading and becoming more virulent. Conservative forces in statehouses across America are pushing bills that would strip trans people of rights, including access to vital medical care. In some places, these laws have already passed. This is all part of a concerted, coordinated effort, as Madison Pauly’s reporting shows. Pauly…

Get Woke! You Others Take Your Shit And Get!

The term ‘WOKE,’ as used by the GOP in attacking minority groups, is by design a set of prejudices and hatred fueled values that do not reflect the genuine concerns that the original meaning of being ‘WOKE’ intends by Communities of Color and others seeking civil liberties due to their differences. In the Black Community, Woke means being conscious of racial discrimination in society and other forms of oppression and injustice. Being woke in the GOP means that white privilege is in danger, and ‘those people’ suggesting anyone who is unlike them, make up the totality of increasing numbers for which all different groups will join together and overpower their top standing, and are planning to overthrow the world powers and pose a threat to white authority.

In such a case, the GOP appears threatened by too many Gays, Blacks, Hispanics, Chinese, Japanese, Muslims, Jewish or other individuals recurring (ad Infinitum) that fail to toe the mark demanding of a conservative peer. But, when most balanced, equally adjusted individuals talk about being woke or becoming woke, they’re talking about being well-informed and well-aware of systemic oppression and injustice. So it’s an odd critique on Republicans’ and conservatives’ part to suggest that being woke is terrible. However, one must note of the ability to mislead, remember the GOP can spin a pussy grabber into becoming a saint (in his own eyes). Taking positive situations and hoping to drag them through the bowels of the lower east side to gut it and make such a useless resource is, after all, what the organization is known best for doing from Richard M. Nixon to a President AWOL during Hurricane Katrina.

Taking a ray of positivity by destroying a word coined for hope, encouragement, and faith and racially raping it for political folly is a simple planish trick that appears to be right in line for today’s grand old prunes. Today’s GOP often claims ownership of President Abraham Lincoln, but his policies, standards, and morals cannot be considered even close to their agenda driven whacks. Lincoln was far too liberal and he was who laid bare the Emancipation Proclamation. If Abe were alive today, his membership would receive a blackball ejecting him from being associated with the klaverns faster than one Miss Liz Cheney. And, don’t be fooled, The early 1900 era President Woodrow Wilson would be escorted about town on the Trump Train, tooted on every turn, and chugged on every climb. His brand of Democratic Representation would have Steve Bannon converting. Noose be damned.

Woodrow Wilson was a Dixiecrat when Dixiecrats weren’t cool. He actually delivered on the conservatives anything they wished, and may have been cloaked as DINO.

The South’s only rise again is when there are enabling individuals who find old playbooks of what caused the holy South to stand and show themselves. Even though we are looking at generational prejudices that some claim is their birthright, we are looking at the United States of America never standing and delivering an ultimatum telling those Civil Losers, here are the terms of your surrender, and this will be how you treat your fellow compatriots. And any attempts to overthrow your government other than through legal elections will result in the loss of all rights to property ownership. Sure the last line is testy. It has a bit of the Old Country’s King’s tone, but if you attempt to overthrow our government, is it right that you are so dissatisfied with what you want to own real property in this country? Why wouldn’t you be deported if you attacked the country you are supposed to love?

About Gays And How We Come To Be – And Why Laws Won’t Stop More People From Increasing The Populations In The LGBTQI Community!

The Day You Decided Who You Are

We all remember that day. It may be a Spring afternoon following a light rain shower, with flowers peaking from beneath their winter hiding place for a first glimpse of the season’s sun. There we sit. We were pondering between the two choices. Will we be straight or gay? Surely everyone remembers that day, for if it is a choice, everyone faces the same options. You can choose both, they say. That isn’t very clear.

To be or not to be, when I was a teen, first discovering who I am, was challenging to accept, and it took years to finally get into my head that I am who I am and not who I wanted to be. I would have chosen the path of least resistance and taken the straight route, given another choice. But everything in my biological body restricts me from doing so, and fortunately, I met my lifemate just out of high school. Knowing what I would have missed out on, I am so grateful things turned out as they have. I would not have wished to miss this much love and so many adventures.

Forty-one years later, we still see simple rights afforded to our neighbors threatened to be stripped from us by bigoted and power-hungry maga-republicans. So the question continues to these groups suggesting they can kill off the gays. When did they choose to be straight?

All the books, movies, and internet sites in the world may get banned; however, that will not stop the same amount of new homosexual and bisexual men and women from populating the earth each year. Some evil act does not make them. They are born, just like my husband and me. Just like you!

Both of us originate from small towns in Western Oklahoma. Growing up, we were never acquainted with gay anything. We were church-attending, straight-laced lads all the way. Still, we began slowly dying from living in a suppressive community that had conditioned us to believe we were the worst people on the earth and were going to Hell. That worked until we met and finally began to breathe life through one another. It took a lifetime to get over the damage that God-fearing sermons placed on us, and research has discovered there should be signs on every front door of any religious establishment reading “for entertainment purposes only!”

So When Did You Choose Your Sexual Preference?

And To Screw With It Would Cause Extinction!

This passionate talk from Dr. James O’Keefe MD gives us a deeply personal and fascinating insight into why homosexuality is indeed a necessary and extraordinarily useful cog in nature’s wheel of perfection.

Research shows those making up the LGBTQI Communities are responsible for keeping the human race in existence.

So When Did You Decide? When Did You Make Your Decision On Who To Be?

LGBTQI? It Is Natures Response To Maintaining The Magic Balance In Life – And To Screw With It Would Cause Extinction.

Maintaining The Magic Balance In Life

For those desiring more proof that the existence of gays is “born” to history and that the members of the LGBTQI Community do not simply choose to be Gay, this history lesson may help if you are an individual with a mind with enough room to learn new and factual information. 

Another way to arrive at the understanding of whether LGBTQI members are born or are made of people choosing a lifestyle, ask yourself when you decided to be heterosexual (straight). What day did you choose between the options available and determine what life you wanted? Then consider who would ever pick a life where their being would face prejudices, denial of employment, housing, and services if they had a choice not to have to face the constant bigotry bashing them daily. 

If you believe in a Higher Authority, a God. If this is your premise and you still object to these beings walking the earth, take it up with Him. When you do, if you believe scripture, consider Genesis 1:26-28, which announces that human beings are unique and all are in the image of God.

§Then God said, 'Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the sky and the cattle and over all the earth.  Genesis 1:26-28

Demi Lovato’s Album Cover That Is Upsetting The U.K. And Crotchety Old Stiffs

A poster of Demi Lovato wearing a black colored bondage-style outfit and lying on a crucifix-shaped bed is being banished for causing offenseiveness to Christians.

The title of the singer’s new album clearly alluded to a swear word and, together with the image, linked sexuality to a sacred symbol, the UK’s advertising watchdog found.

Polydor Records said it was artwork designed to promote the album and did not believe it to be offensive.

The poster received four complaints. And, now days that is all it takes!
