Laverne Cox Writes Stirring Essay for INSTYLE In Wake Of SCOTUS's Colossal Gavin Grimm Blunder Comments (0)

The Supreme Court today declined to hear the case of Gavin Grimm, a trans teen fighting for bathroom rights, and in the process vacated a lower court's ruling in his favor. SCOTUS cited Donald Trump's policy, which was to scotch the positive guidelines put forth by President Obama in 2016.

Now, actor and trans activist Laverne Cox is laying it on the line in InStyle, explaining bluntly, “These bathroom laws aren't really about bathrooms.”

From her piece:

... don’t be fooled: These bathroom laws aren’t really about bathrooms. When the current administration rescinded the guidelines for how transgender students should be treated in schools, they made it all about bathrooms. But the Obama-era guidelines also included pronoun and name preferences for these young people as well. These are important components of how trans kids should be treated in school, but all that is lost when we sensationalize this issue. It’s not about bathrooms. It’s about the humanity of trans people, about us having the right to exist in a public space.

Damn right. And Trump and his insane minions are fighting to remove that right. The same principle applies to all anti-gay laws It's about making it harder for us to live.

Log Cabin Republicans Are, Gulp, Kinda-Sorta DISAPPOINTED In Trump Comments (0)

Breaking news: Log Cabin Republicans are vile. 

They have belittled President Obama and Secretary Clinton and finally threw their lot in with Trump — and look what they got? Exactly what everyone in the world knew we'd all get: A namby-pamby figurehead easily swayed into being anti-LGBTQ.

He's already getting rid of President Obama's guidelines on trans students, and there is absolutely no reason to believe Trump won't back a religious freedom bill next.

Thanks, LGBTQ people who voted for this homophobic doofus.

NEA Prez: EVERY STUDENT HAS THE RIGHT TO FEEL SAFE, WELCOMED, AND VALUED Comments (0)

In light of reports that Trump, at Attorney General Jeff Sessions's urging and with the allegedly reluctant approval of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, will roll back President Obama's executive order stating that trans kids should be allowed to use the bathroom of their choice in schools, NEA President Lily Eskelsen García has issued the following statement:

Every student matters, and every student has the right to feel safe, welcomed, and valued in our public schools. This is our legal, ethical and moral obligation. The Trump administration’s plans to reverse protections for transgender students by rescinding the Title IX guidance, is dangerous, ill-advised, and unnecessary.

We reject this discriminatory plan because it is a drastic departure from our core values. We don’t teach hate, we do not tell people how to pray, and we do not discriminate against people based on their religion, gender, or identity. Period.

As the Trump administration threatens our students and our values, we will double-down on our efforts to protect our most vulnerable citizens, including our LGBTQ students and members. We urge more states, school districts, and schools to adopt protections for transgender students. We owe to our students because they need to see us take a bold stand against discrimination whatever form it takes.

Sean Hayes On WILL & GRACE Revival: THE RIGHT TIME TO BRING SOMETHING LIKE THIS BACK Comments (0)

Tumblr_mhpmv1LnjP1qap3owo1_500(GIF via NBC)

Sean Hayes, plugging his CNN docuseries The History of Comedy, spoke to Extra about the highly anticipated new Will & Grace episodes.

Hayes said none of the cast ever imagined Will & Grace would return:

We all ended it so lovely and it meant everything to us to end on a high note like that.

Still, he feels:

It just seems to be the right time to bring something like this back... Something in the universe makes it feel right, like it's time for it to come back.

Maybe they'll name-check the next Democratic POTUS, as they did with a very early Barack Obama reference back in the gay? Day.

Trump Really Took The Cake — Literally Comments (0)

This may seem petty, but it's kinda weird that it even happened.

It seems that Team Trump, as ill-equipped as we all know they are, asked a baker to copy President Obama's last inauguration cake.

Makes me wish they'd employ the same lazy creative thinking to things like health care and LGBTQ rights.
