(Trigger warning: trans-bigotry) J. Crew Plants the Seeds for Gender Identity | Fox News ›

stfufauxminists:

reallyfoxnews:

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.

TWENTY ONE IN PHILADELPHIA. TWENTY ONE

WTF. I’d like to point out that this is the same cardinal who raised such a fuss about my college having a Rainbow Week that we had to change the damned name and scrap some of the activities. Obviously his time would have been better served trying to protect the children who live in PA from abusive priests.
PA residents, these are the names of the accused:
Monsignor John A. Close of St. Catherine of Siena in Wayne, Pa.
The Rev. Mark Fernandes of St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church in Sellersville, Pa.
Monsignor J. Michael Flood of St. Luke the Evangelist in Glenside, Pa.
The Rev. Joseph M. Glatts of SS. Simon and Jude in West Chester, Pa.
The Rev. Steven J. Harris of St. Issac Jogues Catholic Church in Wayne, Pa.
The Rev. Daniel J. Hoy of Our Lady of the Assumption in Strafford, Pa.
The Rev. Andrew McCormick of Sacred Heart in Swedesburg, Pa.
The Rev. Peter Talocci of St. Patrick’s in Malvern, Pa.
The Rev. Phillip Barr
The Rev. John Bowe
The Rev. George Cadwallader
The Rev. Paul Castellani

Alzheimer's Patient Wants To Marry While He Still Recognizes His Partner ›

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.”

Heartbreaking. :(

Man gets 30 months in abortion bomb plot ›

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.

Justice = Love: Contact information for a few of our country's Xenophobic politicians ›

pantslessprogressive:

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.”

Washington office:

2185 Rayburn House Office Building

Washington, DC 20515

phone: (202) 225-4111

District office (recommended for letters):

1110 E. Chapman Ave, Suite 207

Orange, CA 92866

phone: (714) 744-4130

No email address; just online submission form, which states they won’t respond to non-constituents.

Deborah Pauly, Villa Park CA Councilmember

Email: dpauly@villapark.org

City Council phone number: (714) 998-1500

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 ›

robot-heart-politics:

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.

Of all the jaw-on-the-floor videos taken at tea party rallies and protests and such, this is by far the most revolting I’ve seen. Like, stomach-turning, blood pressure rising revolting. Ladies and gentleman, this is the tea party at its worst.

This literally brought me to tears. These people are beyond despicable.

This is horrific. I just don’t understand this shit. 

Welcome to fucking Orange County. This is the town over from mine (or at least it was until I thankfully moved out last week!). The last congressman, Gary Miller, was my congressman. Absolutely sickening. Every single elected official in this video should be fired, starting with Deborah Pauly. If one single Muslim person is harmed in Yorba Linda she should be brought up on charges. WTF is wrong with these people?

All gay-rights bills in Utah Legislature dead ›

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.
