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.

 
Trump Apologists Who Continue To Claim He Is Pro-Trans Based On An Old Quote — He Isn't Comments (0)

Betsy-devos

Via The New York Times: Trump's anti-trans order (he will rescind school protections for trans students) is coming — and it's only happening because he and Jeff Sessions insisted that Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos sign off on it.

Somewhat surprisingly, ultra-religious DeVos was reportedly uncomfortable with the aggressive stripping of such recently bestowed rights, but Sessions insisted and persuaded Trump, meaning DeVos would either have to resign or cave.

Guess what?

She caved.

Gee, I wonder how the family of Jackie Evancho feels now that she sang the natinoal anthem at his inauguration and he's waited all of a few weeks before removing this progress for trans kids?

Horndog From Canada Turned Away At U.S. Border — Due To Scruff Profile Comments (0)

It might sound ridiculous or even funny at first, but one Canadian man's story of being IMG_9995denied entry to the U.S. by border agents is actually downright scary.

As reported by Daily Xtra, a traveler from Vancouver was given extra scrutiny en route to New Orleans to visit a boyfriend.

This consisted of agents taking his phone and computer and demanding his passwords.

Around two hours later, after he had missed his flight, an agent returned and grilled him on his Scruff and BBRT (BarebackRealTime) profiles, asking what it meant that his profile said he was “looking for loads.”

“I could tell just by his nature that he had no intentions of letting me through. They were just going to keep asking me questions looking for something,” he says. “So I asked for the interrogation to stop. I asked if I go back to Canada am I barred for life? He said no, so I accepted that offer.”

A month later, he booked the same trip, this time clearing his phone of as much personal info as possible. Instead of helping, that hurt the situation:

When he went through secondary inspection at Vancouver airport, US Customs officers didn’t even need to ask for his passwords — they were saved in their own system. But André had wiped his phone of sex apps, browser history and messages, thinking that would dispel any suggestion he was looking for sex work. Instead, the border officers took that as suspicious.

“They went through my computer. They were looking through Word documents,” André says. “I had nude photos of myself on my phone, and they were questioning who this person was. It was really humiliating and embarrassing.”

“They said, ‘Next time you come through, don’t have a cleared phone,’ and that was it. I wasn’t let through. He said I’m a suspected escort. You can’t really argue with them because you’re trapped,” he says.

Are you telling me that agents with people's stored hookup-app and phone passwords aren't abusing them? Isn't it also very likely that gay people could be at a higher risk for being rejected at the whim of homophobic agents?

He lost two flights and around $1,200 due to the capricious actions of the U.S. agents.

And if you're thinking this can only happen to immigrants, think again — even Americans, who must be allowed in, can have their persona devices seized.

Give us your poor, your sick, your huddled masses — but no horny gays, please.

Gay Boxer Yusaf Mack Beats Up Homophobic Twitter Troll Comments (0)

TMZ posted exclusive video of gay boxer Yusaf Mack doing what we've all wanted to do from time to time — beating the holy hell out of an online harasser.

Mack, sick of persistent anti-gay abuse from the man — confronted him in a barber shop in Philadelphia Saturday night, where he laid waste to the loser.

The beat-ee (“victim” seems overly kind) then posted more anti-gay prattle on Facebook, vowing that the two would fight again someday and stating he'd rather be beaten up than  be seen on video taking a dick up his ass.

Soccer Legend Abby Wambach Engaged To Christian Mommy Blogger Comments (0)

Via ExtraTV: Retired soccer star Abby Wambach, a two-time gold medalist, has announced she is engaged to Glennon Doyle Melton, a popular Christian mommy blogger.

The two had debuted as a couple in November, just a few months after Melton's marriage (to a man) and Wambach's own marriage (to a woman) had both ended.

With a sweet black-and-white image of their ring-adorned hands,  Melton posted, Abby and I decided to hold hands forever. First, fiercely, and forever @abbywambach.”

The announcement came days after an especially lovey-dovey post showing the women nuzzling:

In spite of her Christian identity, Melton has long been a gay-marriage advocate, as well as an outspoken critic of Not-My-President Trump's.
