What Happened to “Lurleen”‘s Take on the Brennan-Hungerford Exterminationism Manifesto? [UPDATED]

The one time I forget to do a PDF dump…

Yesterday afternoon Pam’s House Blah’s front page featured the following:

Cathy Brennan & Elizabeth Hungerford take their anti-trans hysteria to the UN

Brennan & Hungerford are alleging that laws protecting all our rights — but in particular trans women’s rights — to use public bathrooms and locker rooms puts non-trans women at greater risk of predation by men.  It’s “bathroom bill” rhetoric dressed up to look like feminism.

The problem for Brennan & Hungerford is that their allegations about the consequences of including gender identity in anti-discrimination laws are not only dehumanizing to trans people, they’re based on intellectual dishonesty and the same fear mongering used by the radical religious-right.

Like Brennan & Hungerford, I am a lesbian born with a female brain and a female body.  (For a trans woman’s take on the letter, read Mercedes Allen’s post here.)  Unlike Brennan & Hungerford, I demand solid reasoning from anyone who would seek to deprive a fellow human being of basic civil and human rights.  So when I see members of my demographic jumping on the international stage, engaging in intellectual dishonesty while seeking to deprive others of their rights, I am compelled to call them out lest my silence be interpreted as tacit support.  It is not

Now, graphically it didn’t look quite like that – and there was more to it (including, when last  I saw it, a couple of comments from Joann Prinzivalli.)  The above is copied over from susans.org

Yet, go to that URL now…

What happened?

There is currently a diary at The Blah about the Brennan-Hungerford exterminationism manifesto, but it is not Laurelurleen Ramseyerogovitch’s and it is not on the front page.

As for the sockpuppet’s diary…

Did someone notice a little inconsistency between:

I demand solid reasoning from anyone who would seek to deprive a fellow human being of basic civil and human rights.

…and how, back in January, at the drop of a hat she – then wearing her “Lurleen” sock, er…, hat – deprived a trans woman of her existence at The Blah?  And how, later, she got some chipmunk-faced nerd at Dan Savage’s rag to act as her scrivener to concoct a fake bit-o-‘journalism’ to cover up the reality of what she had done and why?

Well, apparently erasing is as erasing does at The Blah.

[UPDATE: 8/7/2011, 1:00 AM CDT]

When one checks The Blah’s “Lurleen” link, one now finds:

*** NOTE TO READERS: Due to a glitch in an upgrade on the part of Soapblox (the current host platform), posts and comments from about 8AM 8/5 till this AM were scrubbed. I don’t yet have an ETA on when the missing content will be restored. ***

That is possible, of course – and it appears to have affected comment strings on the non-“Lurleen” diary about this most recent blast of cold shafts of broken glass to radiate outward from Brennan.

Cue one of the Church Lady’s catchphrases….

Other things are possible as well.

    I’m not sure there are reasons to deprive a fellow human being of basic civil and human rights who haven’t committed a serious crime. Even those people maintain some bedrock civil rights – like nondiscrimination protections within prison.

      Well then, you just haven’t been devoting enough time and energy to digesting Dick Cheney’s little red (state) book.
