Walking Billboard: Demi Lovato Wants To Get Her Pro-Trans Feelings Off Her Chest! Comments (0)

Calling her a music megastar, GLAAD trumpeted the fact that Demi Lovato wore a T-shirt with an inclusive bathroom symbol on it in protest of North Carolina's abhorrent HB2 law.

GLAAD's President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said in a statement: 

Demi Lovato continues to be a fearless ally for LGBT equality and acceptance. By wearing her support for the transgender community, Lovato is raising critical visibility for vulnerable LGBT North Carolinians and sending an invaluable message of support to transgender people everywhere.

Lovato will be selling the shirt on her upcoming Honda Civic: Future Now tour, with proceeds going to LGBT orbs in North Carolina.

In April, Lovato and tourmate Nick Jonas nixed a North Carolina appearance over HB2.

Elton John On NC Law: PEOPLE HAVE A FUNDAMENTAL DESIRE—AND A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT—TO BE TREATED FAIRLY Comments (0)

Sir Elton John is not my favorite public figure to be sure, but he should be applauded for contributing a heartfelt essay on the outrageous North Carolina HB2 law that has roiled the nation.

Writing for The Hill, John argues:

But what’s worse than the discriminatory bill itself, and the millions in taxpayer dollars [Gov. Pat] McCrory is wasting to defend it, is that the governor signed it after admitting he had never met a transgender person. Although McCrory later walked his statement back, the message he sent was clear: the actual experiences of transgender people have no place in a debate over their basic rights.

John goes on to say:

Shouldn’t our elected officials be able to say the same about the problems they’re trying to solve? Stigma and shame drive some of the biggest problems facing society’s most marginalized populations. An unacceptably high percentage of LGBT teens are severely bullied. Only 30 percent of Americans with HIV reach viral suppression, many too ashamed to seek appropriate care. The transgender homicide rate is at an all-time high, driven by fear and prejudice.

To address these problems, our leaders must first acknowledge their existence, as well as the existence of the people affected. And yes, that starts with bathrooms.

In summary, the man who was once fine with civil unions (and once married to a woman!) offers this powerful statement:

McCrory and others who support these discriminatory bathroom bills need to reverse course, but moreover, they need a lesson in compassion. They need to recognize the existence of trans people, and they need to acknowledge that all people have a fundamental desire—and a fundamental right—to be treated fairly.

Bravo, Sir Elton.

McCrory To Trans People Who Need To Pee: Drop Dead Comments (0)

North Carolina's Republican Gov. Pat McCrory had a shaky Sunday TV appearance, withering under questioning even by right-wing Chris Wallace.

Quizzed about why his state needed a law to ban transgender people from using their bathroom of choice, McCrory admitted no one has ever used trans protections to molest children, but:

This is an issue of expectation...And now President Obama and one of my successors as mayor of Charlotte wants government to have bathroom rules. I’m not interested in that. We did not start this on the right. Who started it was the political left. In Houston, Texas, and Charlotte, North Carolina. And now, frankly, in Washington, D.C.

Claiming he's being bullied by the feds, McCrory continued to argue that people of one gender have some sort of basic right to go to the public bathroom surrounded only by people of the same gender. I missed that line in the Constitution.

The fool has now gotten North Carolina to sue the Justice Department over its challenge of the heinous law.

Guess which side will win?

It's just ridiculous to me that this is such an issue, and it's transparent that the reason why is not genuine, ignorant fear that trans people will rape kids and wives, but just a general distaste for these icky people. So the right-wing argument, if they're being honest, would go something like:

You're gross. You're not allowed to pee near me. Pee at home. Which you probably can't afford to own because I would never hire you, or rent because if I did I would fire you once I figured you out. And for God's sake, don't ask me to bake you a cake.
