Trump's Latest 180 — FINE With Same-Sex Marriage Comments (0)

Trump campaigned on, in part, absolutely overturning SCOTUS's decision on same-sex marriage.

Here he is on the topic back in February 2016, when he was courting religious nuts:

I think [Evangelicals] can trust me on traditional marriage… and frankly, I was very much in favor of having the court rule that it goes to states, and let the states decide. And that was a shocking decision for you and for me and for a lot of other people, but I was very much in favor of letting the states decide and that’s the way it looked it was going and then all of a sudden out of nowhere came this very massive decision and they took it away. But I was always in favor of state’s rights; states deciding.

Many issues—not just this, but many issues.

In tonight's 60 Minutes interview, he blew off the issue entirely referring to it as settled and to his opinion on the matter as “irrelevant.”

This is, of course, good news. However, it is another example of the fact that he had no compunction about totally lying, saying anything he needed to say in order to get elected.

More importantly, he is not the decider! The Republican-led House and Senate are the ones who will be cooking up bills and laws and setting the agenda regarding LGBTQ issues. And they will be able to do that with him as president far more effectively than they would have been able to otherwise.

In the same 60 Minutes piece, he was wishy-washy on Roe v. Wade and on another right-wing goal: The prosecution (for what?!) of Hillary Clinton.

To The 1 In 7 LGBTQ People Who Voted For Trump: Thanks For This In Advance Comments (0)

NOM—which was on life support as the Obama years wore on—is back, and they've issued their legislative dream checklist that they believe they will accomplish under Trump/Pence. Of course, picking off gay marriage is at the top of the list.

I have at least one and clearly more LGBTQ acquaintances who voted for Trump. Yes, all white and all men.

I have no affection for anyone who could do that, let alone an LGBTQ person.

One in particular blew my mind by urging me to give Trump a chance, read his actual policies (oh, really?) and realize that hey, he's the most pro-gay Republican president ever!

I guess because ... he held a rainbow flag in Colorado and invited Milo Yiannopoulos to his victory bash?

The truth is that the 1 in 7 LGBTQ people who gave Trump/Pence their vote voted for a man who has promised to end gay marriage and promised to enforce religious liberty, which would mean any business—even a healthcare provider—could deny any type of service to any LGBTQ person as long as they asserted it was in deference to their religion.

If a Muslim did this, it would be an outrage to everyone. But if a Christian is legally able to do it—that's just America?

The Pence half of the ticket is pro-conversion therapy and is against any monies going toward AIDS if the organizations in question are not anti-gay sex.

And these are the men those 1 in 7 gay people—against, most gay white dudes—have entrusted with the presidency, the House, the Senate and therefore the SCOTUS?

I know that there is self-loathing, and I'd bet most of those 1 in 7 are from conservative cities or states, and they're just brainwashed by the white male power structure. But it's not just self-loathing, it's fucking stupid. Why would you mistrust someone like Hillary Clinton for being shady and political (when at worst she would be forced to be pro-LGBTQ because of her constituency) and trust a ticket that is very unabashedly promising to be aggressively anti-LGBTQ in thought, word and deed?

SCOTUS Wades Into Bathroom Debate Comments (0)

Via National LGBTQ Task Force: The Supreme Court will decide on the constitutionality of a school restroom ban for trans students.

From a press release:

The United States Supreme Court has decided to consider the case of Gavin Grimm, a transgender boy from Virginia, who wanted to use the restroom at his school that aligned with his gender identity. A lower court ruled in his favor but the ruling was stayed by the Supreme Court for further consideration.  
 
“We are pleased that Gavin’s case will now be considered by the Supreme Court. In taking the case, the Court is making history as it’s the first time it has considered transgender freedom, justice and equality. Our hope is that it will make history again by affirming that stopping Gavin and other transgender children from using the restroom that matches their gender identities is sex discrimination and therefore illegal under Title IX,” said Victoria M. Rodríguez-Roldán,  Trans/Gender Non-Conforming Justice Project Director.
 
How can anyone justify being against allowing trans people to use the bathroom of their choice? Grow up. None of them has ever assaulted anyone in a john, to my knowledge, while plenty of cis men have assaulted plenty of men, women and children, cis and trans.

In other news, Sen. Ted Cruz, presidential also-ran, is suggesting we NEVER fill the ninth SCOTUS slot, effectively ending the institution. Sounds great.

A woman has come forward who claims Justice Clarence Thomas groped her at a house party in 1999. The woman's housemates recalled her talking about the incident at the time, but no other partygoers (including her boss, the guest of honor) saw anything.

Justice Thomas calls it “preposterous.”
