The Scheming Meme

And this time, I don’t mean the ‘trans woman predator’ meme.

Alas, a front-page thread on the McDonald’s Mauling finally appeared at PHB.  But on the thread with the indirect mention of it, Desiree was cornered into reiterating her initial observation – this time with elaboration:

[T]he trans bashing incident in Maryland has been front page headline news throughout the LGBTI media for the last two days; PHB alone is dead silenton the issue.

I can’t help but think this has a lot to do with PHB’s vocal support for HB 235 — this incident perfectly highlights the need for the exact public accommodations provisions which were removed from HB 235.

From a certain retired physician:

That’s simply not true, Desiree.

Personal issues have arisen that precluded blogging on this story as well as the Equality Maryland story.

The second sentence of that would apply if the sockpuppet did a front-page piece instead of the Sandeenista or the certain retired physician.  After all, I was gone most of the day Saturday – and I guess its possible something could have come up to have prevented me from saying anything about it Friday night. 

Me – or any individual at any particular blog.

But all of the stars at PHB?

Here is where the meme screams and schemes:

Unfortunately, this incident would have occurred had HB 235 passed, as well. Its passage, just like its failure, would have done nothing to preclude the need for public accommodations protections.

Yes, officer, I ran the guy over with my car and then backed up over him.  But he had lung cancer, arteriosclerosis, deep vein thrombosis, a torn rotator cuff and ferocious athlete’s foot.  He was as good as dead anyway.  Trust me, I’m a doctor.

And then the Reek Chorus chimed in:

I think your point is that you’re bound and determined to find fault.  Did it ever occur to you to email any of the baristas and say “Hey, I though for sure you’d be all over this story.  The fact that you’re not makes me concerned that something unfortunate is happening for you in real life.  I really hope that isn’t the case, but if it is let me know what I can do to help.  I know that RL can really bite into blogging time and energy.  I’ve already written a post at my blog – I’ll cross-post it to PHB to help get the discussion going.  I sincerely hope all is well with you.  Love, Desiree”

But that would require a) you giving people the benefit of the doubt and b) caring more about the Baltimore story than tearing down the baristas.

Oh, stop it.  You’re killing me!

Or, to restate myself: Stop it! You’re so full of shit that you could take a dump and fertilize the Moon.  Did it ever occur to you as a barista to e-mail Kathleen before you cyber-killed her?  But that would have required a) you giving people the benefit of the doubt and b) caring more about accuracy than tearing down of a trans woman to protect your sockpuppet identity.

The news blackout about this at PHB smells, but the reek of the ‘ain’t no way we’re going to admit we were wrong in shilling for a Gay, Inc.-backed sham trans bill’ meme grows as exponentially as that of any given dead armadillo in the middle of U.S. 67 just north of Presidio at the end of July.

We don’t know what effect Maryland having a trans-inclusive, public accommodations-inclusive civil rights law for the last ten years might possibly have had on the attitudinal development of people who, ten years ago, were respectively four and eight years old, now do we?

Of course, we can make an educated guess.

But that would involve acknowledging history and truly assessing blame.

Oh yeh…

That would also involve deviating from the Gay, Inc.-manufactured pro-HB 235 by comission and pro-HB285 by omission meme.

HB 285.

Remember that?

Authorizing specified persons or the Commission on Human Relations to elect to have the claims asserted in a complaint alleging discrimination by a place of public accommodation determined in a civil action brought by the Commission; expanding the remedies available for specified discrimination; clarifying the remedies available for an unlawful employment practice; authorizing a complainant alleging specified discrimination to bring a civil action under specified circumstances; etc

It actually included and upgraded McDonald’s, er…, public accommodations protections …

for everyone except trans people.

    I fully support giving people the benefit of the doubt – but we’re stuck with the current circumstances and current political realities around the history of this reportage.

    We certainly won’t let them try this again next time – and will demand people give y’all the benefit of the doubt on why you wait to report so long on a personally embarrassing story related to a failed, incompetent political strategy and then rush in with a half assed product after being called out on it.

    But – we need to go forward now and respect the current political realities inherent in this situation.

    Please remember – “don’t be mean” – that means don’t criticize me as I disenfranchise you and speak for you.

      Yes, please enlighten me as to whether we need the Sandeenista.

        They Don’t.
        Especially since my neighbor is cyber stalking an old acquaintance.

        Sandeen could loose her part time job working for the San Diego gay newspaper over this.

        And I for one won’t feel sorry for Sandeen in the least.

    ========================================

    I just googled & found this:

    http://justjenniferblog.blogspot.com/2011/04/sandeen-goes-cyberstalking.html

    Which I assume you’re referring to?

    Yes – stalking really sucks – misgendering people really sucks – and the irony of actually outing someone who is stealth/closeted as having a trans history at work – is quite hilarious. The report says staff – so this is at work? Not that it matters.

    The tag line:

    “P.S.: Please note the last line of my signature block with regards to this e-letter. I’m not agreeing to the electronic publication of this e-letter.”

    That worked out well.

    • Kathleen says:

      Just read the full – not her workplace.

      And – yes – she is misgendering – and it’s clearly an meant to insult. And insult not just her – but a class of people.

      And yes – linking to a blog where it specifically states the person has a transsexual past is meant to bring that knowledge to the attention of someone Autumn thought was her employer when she says she wasn’t out.

      =====================================
      What the blog reports Autumn saying:

      “As a staff member of your congregation, she should be required — if she wishes to remain on your staff — to take her blog down. That is, after making a public apology on her blog for her intentional and malicious misgendering of transgender people on her blog (since she has made her vile misgendering of transgender people in public). If she does not agree to take the malicious content down and apologize for it, then she needs to be released from your staff.”

      ==========================================

      Eh – they’re both acting like……………

      • Not Your Friend says:

        Here in the US we have something called the first amendment to the constitution of the united states. This allows people to speak there mind. While I don’t condone the practice of missgendering someone it’s her blog and it’s her right. Sandeen is a public personality, she writes on PHB a for profit business and writes a regular column for a local gay paper. If I said things that may or may not be true about someone like Glen Beck or Roger Hedgecock and they started sending me hate mail I would have every right to publish it, and by the way just because Sandeen says she doesn’t agree to the public publication of her emails that means nothing zipp nadda.
        The person who receives those emails can do whatever they want with them.

        I think it’s time for Sandeen to get her meds adjusted and put the big girl pants on and grow up a little. This action by Sandeen will do more to hurt Sandeen than anybody else.

        The sad part is I knew Sandeen back in 2002 and 2003 and this kind of behavior is the norm for Sandeen and when things get tough and people fight back she pulls the Nut-Case card and goes crying to anybody who will listen.

        With any luck Sandeen will come to her senses before her followers see the real face of Autumn Sandeen.

    =====================================

    Seriously – you’re choosing the first amendment as an fig leaf to cover what she chooses to say?

    I guess that must cover Autumn as well by this standard. She has a right to say what she wants to Jennifer’s church.

    Both are bullshit – Jennifer has chosen this kind of insulting language for years – I think I remember her spouting this nonsense & misgendering people back in the 90’s before she had surgery – which was hilarious.

    No – Jennifer deserves to be called out over this & calling her out isn’t a violation of her free speech rights – it’s free speech to call her out.

    Autumn’s actions deserve to be questioned as well. If a copy of the email is posted rather than just someone typing its contents – I’ll likely use stronger language.

    But – I have very little sympathy for someone who has years of misgendering others for over a decade – to put it in her terms – just plain women don’t spend years online – much of it on trans sites – talking about how they’re not transgender and those who are are worthy of her disdain.

    At least not those lacking severe personality disorders. They deserve each other.

    • Not Your Friend says:

      I understand how you feel.
      I have the advantage of a couple of years of face to face contact with Sandeen.

    politically correctness= a crock of crap. And that refers to what Tg`s call being mean & hurtful or best yet transphobic, so stuff it and move on.

    As to the Mc donalds thing, no amount of laws or so called rights would have made a difference to what happened. Get real people,hate crime laws do not stop
    a crime from happening, regardless of who is involved.
    The one who will get hurt the most will be the owner of the business.

      You make two different statements there. The latter is one that I agree with (even though, given that Maryland does have a hate crime law, there clearly should be a hate crime prosecution here.)

      As to no law/rights making a difference, that’s bullshit. Precisely what law would make what difference? That’s a different story.

      However, you cannot automatically assume that the decade-old gay-only law of Maryland (and the local laws which were gay-only prior to the 2001 law) have made no difference as to how young, obnoxious morons – such as the ones who assaulted Ms. Polis – view the acceptability of bashing non-trans gays. Likewise, you cannot automatically assume that had Maryland’s transphobic gay elite engineered laws that didn’t only protect themselves that young, obnoxious morons would still not have viewed Ms. Polis as worthy of existing.

      The one who will get hurt the most will be the owner of the business.

      So?

      Maybe if corporate criminals paid a bit better they’d be able to staff their establishments with people – of all races, genders, sexualities, et. al. – who are a bit more competent.

      =====================================

      You misunderstand me – I’m someone with a transsexual history & I call it being an asshole.

      Maybe the assholes should try moving on.
