A recent feature in J. Crew’s online catalogue portrays designer Jenna Lyons painting her son Beckett’s toe nails hot pink. The quote accompanying the image reads, “Lucky for me, I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink. Toenail painting is way more fun in neon.” Yeah, well, it may be fun and games now, Jenna, but at least put some money aside for psychotherapy for the kid—and maybe a little for others who’ll be affected by your “innocent” pleasure.
This is a dramatic example of the way that our culture is being encouraged to abandon all trappings of gender identity—homogenizing males and females when the outcome of such “psychological sterilization” [my word choice] is not known.”
Dr. Keith Albow for Fox News, simultaneously embracing the heteronormative binary, hating on J Crew, discriminating against non-cisgendered people, and addressing non-heteronormative gender identities as “non-fiction.” Enjoy!
So uh, this guy’s a douchebag. Also, I put a trigger on it because the things this dude says are seriously hating on trans and non-binary folks. I figure better safe than sorry.
There are no gifs for what I am feeling, and that is disgust.
Californians Ed Watson and Derence Kernik have been together for 40 years, but Ed has been been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and the couple is desperately hoping to marry while he can still recognize Derence. In a totally fucking related development, today the American Family Associationdenounced attempts to have the stay on Prop 8 lifted, using the headline, “Patience Is Not A Homosexual Virtue.”
GREENSBORO — A former Rowan County resident who pleaded guilty last year to giving bomb-making instructions to an FBI informant was sentenced Wednesday morning to 30 months in federal prison.
Justin Carl Moose, 26, believed he was helping the man plan an attack on a women’s health clinic where abortions were performed. The Planned Parenthood Association alerted authorities after discovering that Moose was “advocating extreme violence” against such clinics on his Facebook page, court records say.
The judge sentenced Moose to have a mental health evaluation and alcohol/substance abuse treatment. Upon release from prison, Moose will be on supervised probation for three years and pay $100 in fines. While on probation, he must submit to random drug tests and participate in both a substance abuse and mental health treatment program.
He is also not to possess a computer or an electronic device that may enable him to access the Internet unless approved by his probation officer.
While not part of his sentence, Schroeder suggested Moose talk to a minister or priest about his “strong feelings” and the views he expressed on Facebook.
Below is contact information for two of the elected officials who spoke at this protest in Yorba Linda, CA against the ICNA Relief, a hunger prevention program which just happens to be a Muslim organization. From their site: “We are a Muslim organization and feel the responsibility to help and support the needy as our religious responsibility”. If you haven’t seen the video yet, please do so now.
Congressman Ed Royce
From the video: “They call it multiculturalism, and it has paralyzed too many of our fellow citizens to make the critical judgment we need to make to prosper as a society.”

From the video: “As a matter of fact I know quite a few Marines who will be very happy to help these terrorists to an early meeting in paradise.” Again, this is referring to the ICNA Relief group, which helps and raises money for women’s shelters and serves as a hunger prevention program.
As a side note: It’s disgusting beyond belief when citizens spew this vile hatred, but it’s even worse when politicians - elected officials with easy access to microphones and the ability to influence public policy - spread their Islamophobic diatribes. This is why I have provided their information.
Here’s the info for Gary Miller, the last official speaking in the video.

Capitol Chaos: Senate Moves To Bring 'Wisconsin 14' Back, Possibly By Force | Today's TMJ4 - Milwaukee, Wisconsin News, Weather, Sports, WTMJ | Local News ›
And Scott Walker defying a court order to open the Capitol, in keeping with the state constitution is…what exactly?
Well, that’s all well and good, Republican senators of Wisconsin. Except for the fact that you can’t send your cops to Illinois, so… ?
Indiana is doing similar things. Ugh.
After a last-resort effort to move an anti-discrimination bill out of the Senate rules committee failed, all gay-rights legislation in the Utah legislature is essentially dead.
Several legislators objected to the bill because they said there was no data shown to indicate a non-discrimination act was necessary. However, at the beginning of the session, Equality Utah delivered a report to each legislator that detailed discrimination in Utah based on a year-long survey. The survey found that 44 percent of gay people in Utah had been fired or denied a job because of their sexual orientation. That percentage jumped to 67 percent of transgender Utahns.
Forty-four percent of gay people and 67% of transgender people.
We need ENDA now. It is too important to keep being put on the back burner.
