A description of what it is like to be born into the wrong gendered body.

Filed under: Gender, Health, LGBTQ, Sex, Transgender news — Scottie @ 14:45

Hello everyone.  Today on my Toy Box we are talking about transgender and what it means.   I am not transgender and so I am a bad spokesperson for that, but I have felt the adverse abuse from being different than the majority of the population. 

Here I found a great way to explain it and I hope everyone will give it a read.   I lifted it from a blog where the author is asking for money to help with surgery and so I will link to the post but not include it all.

I found the author’s way of describing what it is like to be born of one gender yet have the mind of a different gender.  Let me know what you think.   Hugs

I’ve posted this on Twitter, but in case you’ve never seen it, here’s my way of describing how gender dysphoria feels to me…

I fucken love this.   If you have a problem with it let me know, because it may be you have a stereotype in your head that needs help removing.   This is the kind of in your face advertising needs to be done on transgenderism.   Hugs

31% of White Evangelicals Say They’ll Support Trump No Matter What He Does

31% of White Evangelicals Say They’ll Support Trump No Matter What He Does

It’s not surprising that white evangelicals overwhelmingly support him. They don’t care about — or are willing to overlook — his affairs, scandals, inhumanity, ignorance, racism, and blatant pandering. It’s also not a shock that non-religious people and Black Protestants mostly disapprove of him.

But look at the far ends of the bars. They represent whether those groups are open to changing their minds.

 

While 75% of white evangelicals approve of Trump’s performance in office, 31% of them say there’s literally nothing he could do to lose their support. He really could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue without it making a difference to his base.

All of that plays out in another question, too: “Is Trump encouraging white supremacists?” The correct answer is yes. The white evangelical answer is “What? I can’t hear you. Who cares. Judges. Judges. Gimme more judges.” Check out, though, just how aligned Black Protestants are with the non-religious:

There was a time when I thought white evangelicals supported Trump because Mike Pence was his running mate, and he’s one of them. I was wrong about that. It’s obvious now that Pence’s Christianity was never as powerful a draw as Trump’s open bigotry. If Pence was booted from the ticket, I suspect very little would change for Trump in terms of his support from those same Christians.

This is what misogyny looks like in real life

This is what misogyny looks like in real life. The double standards used to judge Hillary Clinton were never about emails or security, it was always about attacking a woman of power for being a woman.

Uganda: ‘Kill the Gays’ Law Imposing Death Penalty on Homosexuals *Added information*

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Economics, Gender, Greed, Hate, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Religion, Sex — Scottie @ 12:16

The love of their god is their love to hate.  Think of the money and effort to change a countries view on homosexuality to such a fervent dislike and anger against.   Why.  What does it matter to Scott Lively that people a world away on a totally different country on a different continent may have sex with their own genders?  It is sick.  Talk about recruitment, it is not the gays doing it.   Hugs

Uganda: ‘Kill the Gays’ Law Imposing Death Penalty on Homosexuals

Homosexuality was illegal in Uganda under existing colonial laws, he explained, “But nobody was ever arrested or prosecuted based on those old laws. People turned a blind eye to it. Homosexuality was not a political issue.”

That changed in 2009, Rev Kaoma said, when a group of American evangelicals led by Pastor Scott Lively, a self-proclaimed expert on the “gay movement”, held a series of talks in Uganda. Mr Lively warned audiences that the “evil institution” of homosexuality sought to “prey upon” and recruit Ugandan children in a bid to “defeat the marriage-based society”.

Dr Frank Mugisha, director of the LGBT rights organisation, Sexual Minorities Uganda (Smug), recently told The Independent on Sunday, “[The idea] of a gay agenda, of recruiting people to homosexuality – that language wasn’t used in Uganda pre-2009. [Lively] made my work very difficult and was conspiring with my legislators, but [to Ugandans] he was like God himself. People were worshipping him as if he was from heaven.”

American conservatives first arrived in Uganda in significant numbers following the fall, in 1979, of Idi Amin, the Muslim dictator who had banned evangelical Christianity. Among them was Mike Bickle, founder of the Kansas City-based International House of Prayer (IHOP). According to Mr Williams, “Bickle was there on the ground on the day Amin fell… with a group of American Christian leaders, to take the country as a Christian nation.”

US Christian groups have since spent millions on schools, hospitals and orphanages in Uganda. They have also found fertile ground for their religious values. Rev Kaoma said American conservatives may have lost the culture wars on the home-front, but they believe they can win in the developing world. “The battle has been fought on American soil, and then exported to the African continent,” he said.

Virginia Teacher Sues School After Being Fired For Bullying Transgender Student

Virginia Teacher Sues School After Being Fired For Bullying Transgender Student

Are we expected to believe that the cruel religious bigot who believes in lies like the virgin birth, the resurrection, heaven and hell, is really worried about “telling a lie.” What irony.

According to reports, while teaching at the school, Vlaming repeatedly misgendered a female-to-male transgender student by refusing to use his preferred pronouns. Instead, the cruel bully insisted on referring to the male student with female pronouns.

After repeated warnings, Vlaming was disciplined. and eventually fired. Late last year the West Point School Board voted unanimously to terminate Vlaming. At the time Superintendent Laura Abel said she agreed with the decision. In a statement Abel said:

I won’t use male pronouns with a female student that now identifies as a male though I did agree to use the new masculine name but avoid female pronouns. Administration is requiring that I use masculine pronouns in any and every context at school. I was informed that any further instances of using female pronouns would be grounds for termination.

Vlaming tried to defend his cruelty and bigotry by claiming religious reasons prevented him from referring to the student as male.

Kentucky Governor, Again, Promotes Meaningless “Bring Your Bible to School” Day

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Criminal, Education, Gender, Hate, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 09:13

Kentucky Governor, Again, Promotes Meaningless “Bring Your Bible to School” Day

Republican Governor Matt Bevin, of Kentucky, a man who constantly promotes Christianity using his office as a platform, is once again supporting the meaningless “Bring Your Bible to School” day sponsored by Focus on the Family.

What Bevin doesn’t say is that this day isn’t even necessary. There is no law against kids bringing their Bible to school all the other days. They can always read it. They can always pray. Today’s event is promoted as a way for evangelicals to fight back against Christian persecution, which doesn’t exist here, while simultaneously giving Christians the tools they need to persecute others. No wonder it’s brought to you by the same group known for its opposition to LGBTQ+ rights as well as the rights of other vulnerable groups.

At best, this event is useless. At worst, it’s going to encourage kids to push their religion on others and bully gay people in the name of God. Bevin’s endorsement, with the trappings of the office surrounding him, doesn’t make those problems any better.

 

Teacher Who Won’t Use Trans Student’s Pronouns Sues VA District for Firing Him

Teacher Who Won’t Use Trans Student’s Pronouns Sues VA District for Firing Him

He says his religion prohibited him from treating the student with respect.

In casual conversation or in the hallway, he would use the wrong one when referring to the student. The student eventually dropped Vlaming’s class. He was then fired for insubordination last October. Now he’s suing.

The lawsuit itself is a tough read in part because attorneys for conservative group Alliance Defending Freedom exhibit the same transphobia throughout the document. They pretend that the student flipped a switch — that this is merely a case of a girl becoming a boy, then demanding everyone else play along.

Among the “facts” listed in the lawsuit are “The student is objectively female” and “The student subjectively identifies as male.” That’s not how any of those things work. It’s also a weak argument to say a teacher’s religion prevents him from creating a welcoming environment for the student. It’s hardly an undue burden to ask a conservative Christian teacher to call a student by the right pronoun. Accidents are one thing; this is a complete refusal to acknowledge the student’s basic humanity.

All the student asked was for Vlaming to stop using feminine pronouns in reference to him since they were inaccurate. He refused to do it because his faith-based ignorance mattered more than the student’s well-being

Republicans want retribution for Obama. They want to hunt down Hillary

Republicans don’t care if CIA and DOJ are tarnished by Trump. They don’t care if the State Department is gutted.

Republicans want retribution for Obama. They want to hunt down Hillary. They want a lawless white man to show the world that Republicans are party of white nationalism and misogyny.

I am at that point.

If you support the Republican Party as it exists now, you support white supremacy, fascism, and misogyny.

Is there no end to the cruelty and hate this administration have for POC?

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Criminal, Family, Fascism, Gender, Harm, Hate, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 11:04
A few weeks ago, Sister Salome Limas started fielding some unusual requests at the women’s shelter she runs in Tijuana: The Central American asylum seekers staying at Instituto Madre Asunta began asking if she could let them out in the middle of the night so they could go to court in the United States. The women then showed her paperwork from US immigration officials, directing them to show up to the Mexican side of the San Ysidro Port of Entry at 3:30 a.m.

Limas didn’t understand why they’d need to be there at such a perilous time, especially in the murder capital of the world. For security reasons, Instituto Madre Asunta’s gates are always locked, and people staying at the shelter aren’t allowed to leave at night. So when the women said they had to leave at 3 in the morning, Limas suggested they get a hotel room closer to the port of entry—the walk from the shelter to the border is about 2 miles, through a neighborhood known for drug and alcohol abuse—and stay there for a few hours. It’d simply be too dangerous to leave the shelter with their kids at that hour.

The courthouse in San Diego where immigration hearings take place is a 25-minute drive from the San Ysidro Port of Entry. Until recently, Knox said, most Remain in Mexico asylum seekers had court in the afternoon and were asked to show up around 8 or 9 a.m. “But, like everything in this process, there’s something very intentional in all of this to make it as difficult as possible,” she said, echoing a common refrain among advocates that the Trump administration is making the asylum process additionally burdensome so migrants give up on their cases or don’t show up at the border in the first place.

Race-Based Hate Crime At Christian School Where Karen Pence Teaches

Race-Based Hate Crime At Christian School Where Karen Pence Teaches

The Week reports:

A 12-year-old student at Immanuel Christian School, a private K-12 school in Fairfax, Virginia, says three sixth-grade boys pinned her down during recess on Monday and cut off her dreadlocks. “I was about to go down the slide, and the three boys came up and surrounded me,” the girl, Amari Allen, told The Washington Post on Thursday. “They were saying my hair was nappy and I was ugly and I shouldn’t have been born.” Allen, who is black, said one boy covered her mouth, the second grabbed her arms, and the third one cut her hair. All three boys, she says, are white.

WUSA9, a local CBS affiliate reports:

Amari Allen said she has never been more traumatized in her life until Monday when she said a group of white male classmates attacked her on the playground at Immanuel Christian School, a private K-12 school, in Fairfax, Virginia.

Amari tells WUSA9 that one boy covered her mouth and the second boy put her hands behind her back, while the third boy pulled out scissors and cut her medium-length locks while calling her names.

Karen Pence, wife of Mike Pence, teaches art at Immanuel Christian School in Northern Virginia, the school where the hate crime occurred. The school, a cesspool of Christian bigotry and hatred, bans gay and transgender students, and requires all employees to sign a pledge declaring marriage is only between a man and a woman.

It’s not a school where everyone is welcome. In a “parent agreement” posted online, the school says it will refuse admission to students who participate in or condone homosexual activity. The 2018 employment application also makes candidates sign a pledge not to engage in homosexual activity or violate the “unique roles of male and female.”

There is a lot more about the schools official polices of hate and discrimination at the link above.  This really is a hateful place.  They really insist that families in their private homes attack LGBTQ, denying anything positive and preaching all the negatives.  In their homes, not just at school.   The Pence’s fit right in. 

Gordon Klingenschmitt: Trans People Are Evildoers Who Are “Full of the Devil”

This is what gets trans people beaten and killed.  This is what drives the hate that causes young gay people to kill themselves.   I often wonder if these people are doing this deliberately because they are filled with hate, or are they so stupid they can not see the damage they cause.  In this case they are the very evil they project on to others.    Hugs

Gordon Klingenschmitt: Trans People Are Evildoers Who Are “Full of the Devil”

The good news? Conservative activist and former state legislator (now once again running for public office) Gordon Klingenschmitt admits transgender people exist!

The man who’s full of shit think trans people are full of Satan.

It’s amusing that bigots like Klingenschmitt think two genders are more than enough while insisting the devil is an actual person and all trans people are just lying to themselves. It’s not worth explaining, yet again, why his description makes no sense, but it’s telling that he thinks the mere existence of a trans person leads to reeducation and indoctrination while a religious school itself does neither.
