Republicans are trying to make it illegal for schools to teach about trans issues

https://www.queerty.com/republicans-trying-make-illegal-schools-teach-trans-issues-20190213

 

Zack Ford of the progressive political site Think Progress has called HB 1108, “the first ‘no promo trans’ bill to actually have traction in the country,” comparing it to “no promo homo” laws currently active in seven U.S. states which forbid teachers from discussing any LGBTQ issues — including LGBTQ politics, queer history, or sexual health — in a positive light.

One of the bill’s supporters, Republican Representative Fred Deutsch, said, “We protect our children that we’re sending to public schools from the influences of other children that are suffering with different disorders.”

He continued, “I don’t want my grandchildren going to kindergarten and being confused if they’re a boy or a girl. Treat our children with respect, all of them, but let’s not subject them to notions of fancy.”

Deutsch sponsored a failed 2016 bill to prevent trans kids from using the bathroom matching their gender identity.

Ford points out that trans children identify themselves at an early age, and many age-appropriate children’s books discuss the issue. HB 1108 would effectively ban these books and disallow faculty from addressing the trans child’s medical and psychological needs.

The bill’s sponsor, Republican Representative Tom Pischke, has “a 100-percent rating from Family Heritage Alliance Action, South Dakota’s anti-LGBTQ political advocacy group,” Ford writes.

Lawsuit: Principal Said 4th-Grader’s Essay on LGBTQ Rights Was “Not Acceptable”

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Fascism, Gender, Harm, Hate, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 07:12

They do not want LGBTQ to be mentioned, seen, acknowledged at all.   They seem to think if they ignore the LGBTQ we will all go away.   Wrong.  Hugs

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2019/03/11/lawsuit-principal-said-4th-graders-essay-on-lgbtq-rights-was-not-acceptable/

According to a recent lawsuit, a fourth grader in South Carolina was told her brief essay on LGBTQ rights couldn’t be included in a collection sent home with students because it “would create [an] undesirable situation at the school.”

What was so awful about the girl’s essay? The assignment was to write a paper about any topic, addressed “to society,” and here’s what the girl wrote:

To society,

I don’t know if you know this but peoples view on Tran’s genders is an issue. People think that men should not drees like a women, and saying mean things. They think that they are choosing the wrong thing in life. In the world people can choose who they want to be not being told that THEIR diction is wrong. I hope people understand that people can hurt themselves from others hurting their feelings. People need to think before they speak because one word can hurt someone’s feelings. We need to fix this because this is getting out of hand!

… Defendant Principal Elizabeth Foster religiously defended her decision by consistently raising her voice and making loud statements, including but not limited to the following: that the original paper would “make other parents upset,” “would create a undesirable situation at the school,” was “not acceptable” and that it was “not age-appropriate to discuss transgenders, lesbians and drag queens outside of the home.” Defendant Principal Elizabeth Foster further proclaimed that “due to the type of school this is, the people that work here and the students and families of the students that go here, the topic would be disagreeable.”

Why should the feelings of a bunch of (I assume) conservative Christians prevent this essay from being included in the mix? It’s perfectly age-appropriate to talk about treating people with civility and decency. It’s also fine to discussion LGBTQ issues considering students learn about family structures and mommies and daddies from a young age. If it’s not weird to talk about straight, cis people, it shouldn’t be weird to talk about gay, lesbian, and trans people. Hell, it’s not like the girl was describing what people do in the bedroom.

Leaked Chat Logs Show White Supremacist Hate Group Conspiring To Keep Racist GOP Rep. Steve King In Office

Again we are shown proof that the republican party has long been racist, and the party of tRump depends on the racists to keep them in office.  We need to worry about these people.  Hugs

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/03/leaked-chats-show-white-supremacist-hate-group-conspiring-to-keep-racist-gop-rep-steve-king-in-office/

The Huffington Post reports:

Newly leaked chat logs linked to a prominent hate group reveal that white nationalists have actively worked to keep Rep. Steve King and his racist ideology in office — by donating to his campaign, calling members of Congress to show their support when King stumbles or by attempting to reach the congressman directly.

Oh yes, there is more. By the way, that was Identity Evropa’s banner at the top of today’s post about the 182% increase in white supremacist incidents.

White Supremacist Incidents Up 182% Since 2017

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/03/white-supremacist-incidents-up-182-since-2017/

 

ADL’s Center on Extremism (COE) continues to track an ever-growing number of white supremacist propaganda efforts, including the distribution of racist, anti-Semitic and Islamophobic fliers, stickers, banners and posters. The 2018 data shows a 182% increase of incidents from the previous year, with 1,187 cases reported, compared to 421 in 2017.

The propaganda, which includes everything from veiled white supremacist language to explicitly racist images and words, often features a recruitment element, and frequently targets minority groups, including Jews, Blacks, Muslims, non-white immigrants and the LGBTQ community.

NEBRASKA: Bill To Protect LGBT Workers Fails After GOP Reps Claim “Reverse Discrimination” Against Christians

So preventing Christians from activly persecuting and opressing LGBTQ people is discrimation of Christians?  Is this a secular nation or a theocracy?  Hugs

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/03/nebraska-bill-to-protect-lgbt-workers-fails-after-gop-reps-claim-reverse-discrimination-against-christians/

According to GOP state Sen. Robert Clements [photo], the bill would legitimize “reverse discrimination” against Christians. Other claimed it would spawn “frivolous lawsuits.”

UTAH: Republicans Gut GOP Bill To Ban Ex-Gay Torture After Testimony From Anti-LGBT Christian Hate Group

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/03/utah-republicans-gut-gop-bill-to-ban-ex-gay-torture-after-testimony-from-anti-lgbt-christian-hate-group/

Family Watch International — an Arizona-based organization that the Southern Poverty Law Center lists as an anti-LGBT extremist group — brought its resources to bear against Hall’s version of the bill.

Fliers with a photo of a smiling, heterosexual couple on their wedding day were piled around the committee room, directing readers to the organization’s website.

The SPLC reports on Family Watch International’s founder:

Sharon Slater forged close ties over the years with virulently anti-gay African activists like Ugandan pastor Martin Ssempa — an enthusiastic supporter of the country’s “ Kill the Gays ” bill — who have helped her lead campaigns to oppose the decriminalization of homosexuality. While these laws impose long prison terms on LGBT people, Slater insists that her position is a compassionate one: by reinforcing a culture inimical to homosexuality, she claims, LGBT people will be encouraged to unlearn their attraction, in turn neutralizing the threat they present to what the Christian Right calls the “natural family.” The rights of LGBT individuals, she argues, are “fictitious.”

FLORIDA: GOP Bill Would Undo All Local LGBT Rights

The Orlando Sentinel reports:

Just when advocates for a statewide LGBTQ civil-rights appear to have more support than ever — including from a growing number of Republicans — another bill in the Florida Legislature is threatening to eliminate anti-discrimination measures already enacted by cities and counties.

Grant is the Majority Whip of the Florida House. About 60% of LGBT Floridians are currently protected by local anti-discrimination ordinances.

CPAC Head Matt Schlapp Blasts “Radical Democrats” For Being Intolerant Of Mike Pence’s Hatred Of LGBT People

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Fascism, Gender, Harm, Hate, Homosexual, News, Political, Questions, Religion, Sex — Scottie @ 16:02

Does he even see the irony of his statement?  Does he intentionally turn the truth upside down and inside out like this to make Christians who want to tell other adults they can not have consensual sex with each other and who demand the right to control a female’s body and reproductive rights, the victims?   Again because they do not get to persecute and force others to live their doctrines they are not the victims.  The victims are the ones these Christians use their faith to attack and bash.  The real victims are the ones they deny rights to because they demand we all go by the standards of goat herders from 4000-2000 years ago.   The real victims are the children they deny an education so they can stay true to a myth that has no evidence of being real.   Ggggrrrrrr.  Hugs

“It is the growing intolerance on the left towards Americans who want to make their own religious choices, including their own sexual choices, that should be respected. I’m sad the left won’t respect their choices.” – CPAC head Matt Schlapp

Georgia GOP Attempts Another “Religious Liberty” Bill

Again  another Christian who thinks being unable to discriminate and persecute others makes them the victim.  That is christian privilege.  Imagine if another religion demanded that right.  Hugs

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/03/georgia-gop-attempts-another-religious-liberty-bill/

“Georgians need to be fully protected under the First Amendment,” said state Sen. Marty Harbin

“This is not about discrimination against anybody. It’s a protection,” said Mike Griffin, a lobbyist for the Georgia Baptist Convention. “There are situations where we believe Christians are being targeted in some way. And it’s not just about Christians. It’s about all people of faith.”

Just a bigot

Will they also deny service to adulterers, remarried or divorced people, shellfish eaters, people or other religious faiths?

Again this is not about religious views, this is about bigotry clear and simple.   Do they feel they have a right not to sell cake to other races as well?   Hugs

Brian Brown: The Jussie Smollett Case Proves We Must Stop LGBT Civil Rights, So Send Me Money Right Now

So it begins !!!    Thanks Smollett.   Hugs

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/02/brian-brown-the-jussie-smollett-case-proves-we-must-stop-lgbt-civil-rights-so-send-me-money-right-now/

And even worse than that is when elected officials seek to codify special legal status and rights for gays and lesbians, which can easily be used as a weapon against other Americans, particularly those who hold to traditional biblical views of human sexuality and gender.

As is his usual practice, Brown’s email features more than a dozen links to NOM’s donations page.

Anti-LGBT Fox Contributor Accused Of Abusing Patients, Allegedly Lured Them Into Slave Relationships

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Fascism, Gender, Harm, Hate, Homosexual, News, Political, Questions, Sex — Scottie @ 17:11

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/02/anti-lgbt-fox-contributor-accused-of-abusing-patients-allegedly-lured-them-into-slave-relationships-video/

The Boston Globe reports:

A prominent North Shore psychiatrist is facing lawsuits from three female patients who say he lured them into degrading sexual relationships, including beatings, conversations about bondage, and, in one case, getting a tattoo of the doctor’s initials to show his “ownership” of her, according to court documents.

“He began to hit me when we engaged in sexual activities,” wrote one plaintiff, a New York woman, in a sworn affidavit filed with her lawsuit. “He would have me on my knees and begin to beat me with his hands on my breasts,” she wrote, “occasionally saying, ‘I own you,’ or ‘You are my slave.’”

There’s much more at the link. No paywall. Ablow has appeared on JMG multiple times for his attacks on LGBT rights and for his claim that same-sex marriage will result in legalized polygamy and humans marrying dogs. Oh, and Donald Trump is a literal genius. He still appears on Fox News opinion shows regularly.

Scott Lively Warns Trump: God Will Withdraw His “Hand Of Favor” Over Push To Decriminalize Homosexuality

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Bigotry, Fascism, Gender, Harm, Hate, Homosexual, News, Political, Religion, Sex — Scottie @ 16:26

Scott Lively you may recall was involved with making homosexuality a death penalty offence in Uganda.  He travels the world trying to get countries to enact harsh laws against the LGBTQ people.   He has a virulent hatred for gay people.  Hugs

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/02/scott-lively-warns-trump-god-will-withdraw-his-hand-of-favor-over-push-to-decriminalize-homosexuality/

Scott Lively writes for World Net Daily:

True conservatives are in a real bind here. If we oppose the Grenell gambit, that fact will be spun by his leftist media allies as support for violence against homosexuals.

But if we capitulate to the idea that sexual deviance is a universal human right alongside true family values, what are conservatives actually working to “conserve”? How can we Make America Great Again if we openly embrace the corrosive LGBT sexual anarchy agenda that has been so instrumental in her collapse?

Lively has twice run for governor of Massachusetts, taking 36% of the votes in the 2018 GOP primary. He is considered by some to be a prime architect of Uganda’s infamous and ultimately failed “Kill The Gays” bill and was unsuccessfully sued in US court for crimes against humanity.

 

Court Grants Birthright Citizenship To Twin Son Of Gay Couple, One Son Has US Dad, Other Has Israeli Father

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Family, Fascism, Gender, Hate, Homosexual, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 15:10

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is famous for being a Evangelical Christian and a completely anti-LGBTQ.   He really dislikes LGBTQ.  So these actions and the way it was done coming from the State Department doesn’t surprise me, but it is an other example of how they are trying to make same sex marriages mean nothing.   As one Anti-LGBTQ activist put it ” Just because they can get married doesn’t mean they get the rights and privilege of a real marriage”.  They are trying to chip away at our marriages just as they have done to abortion rights in this country.  They really are hateful people.   Someone should remind them this is a secular country still despite their best effort to change it to a theocracy.   Please go to the report to read more.    Hugs

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/02/court-grants-birthright-citizenship-to-twin-son-of-gay-couple-one-son-has-us-dad-other-has-israeli-father/

NBC News reports:

A federal judge in California ruled Thursday that a twin son of a gay married couple has been an American citizen since birth, handing a defeat to the U.S. government, which had only granted the status to his brother. The State Department was wrong to deny citizenship to 2-year-old Ethan Dvash-Banks, District Judge John F. Walter found. The lawsuit filed by the boys’ parents, Andrew and Elad Dvash-Banks, sought the same rights for Ethan that his brother, Aiden, has as a citizen.
