Florida Republicans submit 4 anti-gay bills on last day to file

I do not understand the hate in these people, nor their desire to harm others not like them.    Also I am tired of politicians trying to make medical decisions for people instead of leaving it up to the patient and their doctor.    I use to have a muscle relaxer that worked really good for me.   The Florida state legislature in an attempt to look like they were addressing the opioid addiction problem, made it illegal for a pain doctor to prescribe it, while other doctors still can.   I have to use other drugs that do not work as well and have worse side effects.   The drug was not even an opioid.   I shouldn’t be forced to take medical advice from a legislator instead of my doctor.    Hugs

The bills would repeal LGBTQ antidiscrimination ordinances, criminalize trans health care for minors and allow conversion therapy in places that had banned it.

Seven Republican lawmakers in Florida filed anti-LGBTQ bills late Monday, just hours before the deadline to file new bills for the coming legislative session.

If passed, the bills would ban gender-affirming health care for transgender children, repeal municipal and county ordinances protecting LGBTQ workers, and legalize so-called gay conversion therapy in places that had banned the medically debunked practice.

Equality Florida, the state’s largest LGBTQ rights group, also decried the late-session bill dump.

“This is the most overtly anti-LGBTQ agenda from the Florida Legislature in recent memory,” Jon Harris Maurer, the group’s public policy director, said in a press release. “It runs the gamut from openly hostile legislation that would arrest and imprison doctors for providing medically necessary care, to legislation that would carelessly erase critical local LGBTQ protections.”

“It is outrageous that conservative legislators would threaten their health and safety,” she said in a statement. “Medical professionals, not politicians, should decide what medical care is in the best interest of a patient. Forcing a doctor to deny best practice medical care and deny support to transgender youth can be life-threatening.”

Conservative Republicans across the country have lately moved to introduce bills that would criminalize the provision of medical care for transgender children — including treatments endorsed by all major medical organizations. Florida’s trans health care ban proposal joins a list of similar bills that have been filed in recent weeks by staunchly conservative lawmakers in Tennessee and Texas.

“Sadly, the medical care of transgender youth has been sensationalized and politicized,” Jack Turban, a researcher at Harvard Medical School, said. “Gender-affirming medical care for transgender adolescents is endorsed by major medical organizations, including the Endocrine Society, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry. It should go without saying, but providing standard medical care should not be a felony.”

 

 

 

Stephen Miller Shared Idea Of Shipping Undocumented Immigrants Out of The U.S. on Trains as Scare Tactic, Leaked Breitbart Emails Reveal

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Hate, News, Political, Questions, Race, Youth — Scottie @ 09:27

https://www.newsweek.com/stephen-miller-warned-undocumented-immigrants-will-replace-existing-demographics-leaked-1482174

The Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Hatewatch” section published its latest series of emails Tuesday which were leaked by an ex-Breitbart editor. The emails reveal Miller pitching white nationalist and vigilantly anti-immigrant ideas to the right-wing publication while he was a rising GOP aide to then-Senator Jeff Sessions and later a top Trump campaign policy adviser on immigration. Miller’s latest leaked messages show he shared an article from far-right website WorldNetDaily with Phyllis Schlafly, who suggested the idea of shipping immigrants out of the U.S. on trains as a scare tactic and expressed fears that migrants might “replace existing demographics.”

As the SPLC’s Michael Hayden notes, Miller refers to a “great replacement” theory frequently expressed by extreme white nationalist figures and in the manifestos of several mass shooter suspects.

“Demanding DREAMers be given citizenship because they ‘know no other home.’ That principle is an endorsement of perpetual birthright citizenship for the foreign-born,” Miller wrote in the email, referring to DACA recipients. “Not only will the U.S.-born children of future illegal immigrants and guest workers be made automatic U.S. citizens, but their foreign-born children will too because, as [former Republican House Majority Leader Eric] Cantor said, ‘Our country was founded on the principle.'”

In a June 2015 email, Miller lamented that “illegal youth” are allowed to remain in the U.S. as he said they soak up “both work permits and generous free cash tax credits.” Miller, writing to Katie McHugh, the former Breitbart editor who leaked the emails, used the subject line, “The Immigration Surge” to make his point.

Seriously disturbing video. Watch: High School Staff Forces Bathroom Stall Door Open While Trans Girl Uses Toilet

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2018/11/watch-high-school-staff-forces-bathroom-stall-door-open-while-trans-girl-uses-toilet/

She was only trying to use the bathroom when school staff forced open the stall door, exposing the minor to several leering adult staff members.

In a deplorable demonstration of transgender discrimination and poor judgment, staff members at Osseo Senior High School in Maple Grove, Minnesota, can be seen on video forcing open a bathroom stall door because a transgender teen was using the toilet.

The transgender teen said she was “scared and violated” when the group of adults forcibly opened a private stall while she used the bathroom in her Minnesota school.

The teen captured her horrifying ordeal on video:   Remember to turn on the sound.  

***Please go to the link above to view the video as it is not posting correctly here. ***

more information at the link.   A bunch of perverts force open a bathroom stall while a child is using the toilet.    They then keep the door open.   This is the nightmare that republicans keep saying will happen if you let trans people use the bathroom they identify with, but it is not the trans person doing this, it is the horrible bigots.    The bigots are a threat.   Think of the huge outrage there would be if they had done that to a non-trans student.     Hugs

Bigotry on display as adults threat harm and castration towards a 12 year old trans girl.

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Education, Gender, Harm, Health, News, Questions, Religion, Youth — Scottie @ 13:17

Please notice the call was for churches to enforce an action in a public school.   There was not any problem problem for years.  I don’t believe the girl was “peeking”, I think that was made up to cause trouble for the trans girl.  First kids do not have to peek today to see genitals, they have the internet on just about every device in their lives.   That whole “peeking” thing sounds so old school I am confident a parent made it up.  

http://www.joemygod.com/2018/08/14/school-cancels-classes-after-parents-threaten-violence-against-trans-student-a-sharp-knife-will-do-the-trick/

One parent found out, and took to a private Achille Facebook group to complain. That’s where the threats started. Adults called Maddie by “it” and “thing.” Some said she should be stabbed or beat up. One even suggested it was open hunting season for transgender people. “That’s a threat against her life–that’s scary,” Rose said. “These are adults making threats– I don’t understand it.”

 

“Why are parents letting their kids be transgender?” said one post. “Parents and Churches need to shut this down, the Bible says God created man, and woman . . . not any transgender bs,” said another. “Hell with new laws and new rules, this is what our future is if WE don’t stop it.”

Others made disturbing threats of violence: “If he wants to be a female make him a female. A good sharp knife will do the job really quick.” “Just tell the kids to kick a– in the bathroom and it won’t want to come back!!”

So on my way home after getting my stitches out of my mouth ( for the second time ) I stopped at the grocery store down the street from our home for a few items.  We shop there often and are recognized by the people working there.   I had passed the manager a few times and joked with him.  We both happened to be at the egg display case at the same time and I found a case of eggs with a few broken ones.   I gave the case to the manager.   I then checked another one and it also had broken ones, and I gave these to the manager also.  He was trying to take the broken ones out and get a full unbroken case and at that point a young store worker I had not seen before stopped by us.   I told the manager that three weeks ago I had checked a case of eggs, turned to put them into the cart, and hit the handle.  At that point the eggs flew out of my hands and flipped three times in the air, landing in the cart right side up.   Not a single egg got broken.  When I finished the young teen / adult boy spoke up and told me and the manager ” That was god Sir”, he blurted out.  “It was God, it had to be, only God could have kept them from breaking”.  Then as I just stared at him and the manager was also less than pleased he continued again with his lesson to us about the egg saving grace of his God, “God is with us, he is with you Sir, God is all around us and …”.   Noticing the manager was now giving him a very icy stare the young man began walking away.  As he departed I could hear him finish his joyful telling me about how God was with me.   The Manger turned to me and I shrugged while mentioning I had not known God was so good at designing styrofoam egg cases.    He laughed and I went on my way.  I wonder if that boy will be getting a talking to about telling people about his god while at work.  I felt bad for the boy really.  He honestly felt a deity had intervened to save the eggs I was buying but the boy never thought about the  kids his God lets starve and be raped.  The look on the boys face as he was telling us about his god was so happy.  I wonder, what happens when the light comes on , when that boy’s god fails him?  It seems cruel to me to teach young people to have that faith over reason.   Even though I live in the southern USA in a state known for its churches and religious fanatics, I was still stunned to see this.   What has education become in our country, this young man was praising his God and telling me he protected my possible eggs purchase but the boy was not thinking of the human engineers who worked on the packaging nor the many far more important things his God should have been doing and did not do.   Any thoughts?  Hugs

What It’s Like to Be a Teenage Sex Offender

As if teenagers didn’t have enough to deal with already.

Source: What It’s Like to Be a Teenage Sex Offender

I am always bothered by what can land you on the sex offenders list, with all its restrictions and never ending punishments.   A while ago I posted about a teen boy who killed himself because he was put on the sex offenders list for streaking.     Another boy killed himself because he got put on it for something he did as a Preteen!  He couldn’t put up with all the things he was required to do, and I posted it because what they forced this early teen boy to do was child abuse to me.   When you think of the registry you think of a 40 or 50 year old man having sex with a 12 year old girl.   Or maybe a 12 year old boy.  The fact is that is not the case in a lot of the time.   I have read of people who took a pee outside and got on the list.  I have done that… driving on a road with no rest areas, pull over run behind a tree.  Well that can get you on the sex offenders regestry.  Well here is another interesting article to read on the crazy parts of the registry.    Hugs

A good friend sent this to me. Again this shows how our country has run right off the rails on the subject of nudity, body parts, genitalia, human bodies, and anything deal with sex. This also shows how crazy the sex offenders registry is getting. this country acts as though no one has seen even their own body parts , much less someone else’s. Look anyone with an internet connection has seen all body parts. No one has ever been traumatized and permanently harmed by just seeing a small part of genitalia. We are nuts in this country with how we deal with the human body, nudity, and yes sex. look at all the crazy stuff over transgendered people using the bathrooms they feel is appropriate to their situation. It is all hysteria and lies, and totally one sided and wrong. Other industrial countries have a much better attitude towards the human body and nudity. The way some people go on about the subject seems to hysterical and far from reality. Plus the idea of the useless and increasing punishing offender registry used for something like this is beyond stupid, it ruins what the registry was originally set up to be. How can it be used seriously when a streaker who no one really saw anything is on the list, or what a young person doing consensual sexting. Or a person who goes behind a tree to pee…and then is on the sexual offenders registry. This boy will have his whole life ruined, for a small harmless prank..and trust me, it was small as no one noticed until some one pointed it out. I am so saddened at the stupidity of the people in the legal system in this country, the stupidity of those making the laws, and the hate/fear we seem to have against our own bodies. Sad hugs
