3 Months In, Trump Disingenuously Dragging The U.S. Into World War Comments (0)

Trump does not give a shit about Syrian kids being gassed — if you think he does, you're beyond naive and straight into stupid.

After demonizing Syrian refugees for years, he seized on Assad's outrageous chemical-weapons attack as an opportunity to bomb Assad, thus showing the world he is Mr. Tough Guy — without actually harming Assad or changing the course of the Syrian conflict in any material way.

How anyone could believe that Trump is seeking to do the right thing is beyond me, but he is not.

Gilbert Baker, Creator Of The Rainbow Flag, Dies @ 65 Comments (0)

Gilbert Baker, the creator of the internationally recognized — and reviled, by villainous conservatives! — rainbow flag, has died at 65 at home in Manhattan.

Baker's death from natural causes was confirmed by publicist Jay Blotcher.

Along with inventing the flag, unveiled June 25, 1978, Baker also imbued each color on the flag with meaning:

Red = life

Orange = healing

Yellow = sunlight

Green = nature

Turquoise = magic/art

Blue = serenity/harmony

Violet = spirit

Baker served in the army from 1970-1972, depositing him in San Francisco at a fortuitous moment in gay history. His time in the military was recorded in Conduct Unbecoming: Gays and Lesbians in the U.S. Military (St. Martin's Press, 1993) by the late Randy Shilts.

Baker taught himself to sew, often creating banners and flags for marches against the war and for gay rights. He created flags for Mayor Dianne Feinstein of San  Francisco and for various heads of state in his career. His mile-long rainbow flag, displayed for the 25th anniversary of Gay Pride in NYC in 1994, was carried by 5,000 marchers, breaking a record as the world's biggest flag, a record he topped in 2003.

According to Blotcher, Baker's final creation was a rainbow flag with nine colors — lavender was added to signify diversity. His new flag was designed to celebrate the 39th anniversary of the rainbow flag, and will be on display in San Francisco during Gay Pride.

He is survived by his mother and his sister.

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

Screen Shot 2017-03-06 at 6.09.15 PM(Video still via Instagram @lavernecox)

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.
