Seen recently on Facebook:
If New York can pass gay marriage instead of doing the morally proper thing of rectifying its anti-trans legislative atrocity of a decade ago, then Maryland….
Well, you know….
First, at Pam’s House Blah, Kathleen gets erased (by someone now proven to be a Gay, Inc. sockpuppet who does not operate in the best interests of trans people) for merely asking an abstract question.
Then I get banned there for reporting here about what happened there.
Then I get banned there again for making a non-statement protesting that site’s ban on blanket statements even when they are applicable.
And then there’s….
No, not Maude, but rather Bilerico. The following transpired in the comments to a post about christianist conservafembot scam artist Ann Coulter:
That was a screenshot of the relevant portion of the page as of 11:30 PM CDT last night.
This comment by Kathy (she made others that weren’t erased) – a simple abstract query as to whether she should respond to with fag jokes to Ted Hayes’ him-ing of Ann Coulter – came only four minutes after Ted’s consecration that Ann Coulter is a man. However, over the course of the next 15 hours and 45 minutes, only trans woman Kathy’s response to Ted the gay man’s slur had been removed.
At 7:03 PM, Om Kalthoum observed:
“…personal attacks will not be tolerated. Please be respectful of others.”
Okay, so how is Kathy’s “joking” threat to tell a fag joke a violation of the TOS and the poster’s calling a woman a man okay? Quite the double standard, I’d say.
Well, its an InsidersOut blog. The dignity of all that is gay must be defended at all costs – including the diminishment of anything that might possibly be trans. (And I’m left wondering why Om’s “fag”-quoting reference to the remark hasn’t been erased also.)
A comment at 9:14 AM today – well over a full day after the initial remark appeared – commemorated the belated deletion of that initial remark by Ted Hayes. The fact that the 9:14 comment came from a trans woman is, and even by that point already had become, long since irrelevant. Justice delayed is incrementalism orthodoxy enforced.
And I won’t even mention gay apologism:
…followed by the obligatory pill from bil:
Let’s be clear – if you had someone jump up and crash a panel you were moderating, who spouts a bunch of ridiculous charges about things he’d supposedly done (he hadn’t)….
Presumably this will be the exception that proves the rulre re: Crooks and Liars.
Analyzing remarks by lower-my-taxes-even-if-it-destroys-the-world psychopath Judson Phillips, John Amato had this to say:
[O]n Fox Business [Phillips] was asked to comment on a report wherein Nancy Pelosi said this:
“What we’re trying to do is save the world from the Republican budget . . . We’re trying to save life on this planet as we know it today.”
A bit of hyperbole to be sure, but if the GOP did implement their plans of a balanced budget amendment, the working class in America will surely suffer great harm.
So instead of just responding like an adult, he attacked Nancy Pelosi in a typical conservative ad hominem and misogynistic way.
Phillips: “I Think It’s Clear The Botox Has Gotten To Her”
Odious is as odious does.
Ad hominem? Yes.
Well, if that is the case for those remarks about the former Speaker of the House, then how does one classify all of the remarks by people of all sexes, genders, et. al., regarding the not-to-be-found-in-nature skintone of the current Speaker of the House?
Sorry John, but…
