It Ain’t Just Bidness

Seems like a legend and an out-of- work bum look a lot alike, Daddy.

Recall this from about a month ago?

Progressives have long tried to expose the influence the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) wields in state house across the country, but one Florida lawmaker is making it too easy.

Funded almost entirely by large corporations, ALEC produces “model legislation” favorable to industry that state lawmakers can introduce as their own bills.

In November, Florida state Rep. Rachel Burgin (R) introduced a resolution (PDF here) that would officially call on the federal government to reduce corporate taxes, but she apparently forgot to remove ALEC’s mission statement from the top of the bill, which she seems to have copied word-for-word from ALEC’s model bill:

Well, here’s what that alleged desire for “free markets, limited government, federalism, and individual liberty” yielded back during the roaring ’80s:

Now, given the federalism shpiel I might be able to see how ALEC would concoct something like this directed solely at (imagined) federal government intrusion on the states. 

But why exactly would such an organization have a problem with citizens – individually or in concert – successfully advocating for pro-gay and pro-trans stuff at the state and local level?

Seems like ALEC and Mass Resistance sound a lot alike.

Suddenly, The Bil seems interested in “the whole truth.”

And someone else at Shillerico also seems concerned about differences between facts and rumors, and – GASP! – between right and wrong:

Are Atlanta LGBT Activists Wrong on the Brandon White Incident?

Over the weekend, the LGBT activist group Change Atlanta claimed that Brandon White, the gay man beaten by three other men, was lying about his story.  They said Brandon knew his attackers and he was beaten because he threatened to out them as gay. So, according to Change Atlanta, this wasn’t a hate crime. This was an act of revenge and Brandon had it coming.

This group also held two conferences spreading this notion around Atlanta.

[H]ere are my issues with Change Atlanta’s actions: First, this claim is based on rumors.

WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Whether or not something is based on less than solid, proven facts is significant?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

At Shillerico??!??!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Since when?

Let me remind he of the swiss-cheese mentality – and they who spew with his permission at his vomitorium – of the scoreboard in the “whole truth” game:  Actual Vancouver Facts 1– The Shit that Bil Browning and Several Other Gay Male Bloggers Pulled Out of Their Asses 0

The Trans-Exterminationism Behind the Circular Rhetoric, the Fifth Column, the Kool-Aid and the Quislings

February 26, 2012

We’ve seen this:

But in the first image, note that phrase under ‘likes’ that’s truncated: ‘The Transsexual…’

I wonder what it could possibly be that the poodle purveyors could possibly like?

I wonder who else likes what…

and…

and…

and…

and…

and…

Well, when I see  this:

I remember this:

I guess it all depends on what the definition of ‘exterminate’ is, eh?

In OUR view, MtFs are still MEN because they were SOCIALIZED as men….
   – “Undercover Punk” (a/k/a/Bess Hungerford)

Extermination of personal, social and – because there is no way for it not to follow – legal identity…

with a kool-aid aperitif…

all served on a U.N. placemat.


This is Why Trans People in Maryland Can’t Have Nice Things

February 25, 2012

Lets see…

and…

and…

Lesbians are generally not the ones using the word “Lesbian” as a shaming tactic. Lesbians are generally not the ones who say that other Lesbians don’t speak for the GLBT Community or for Lesbians. It’s Late-Transitioning Heterosexual Males who do this with regularity. It’s Late-Transitioning Heterosexual Males who tell Feminists who argue against overbroad Gender Identity legislation that Lesbians “just don’t understand.”

And…

Any questions?

Actually…

I hope that a few people have a few questions for the publisher of Baltimore Out Loud.

Countdown to GLAAD saying something about Baltimore Out Loud allowing someone who promotes such trans-eliminationism to write for it…

Oh, who am I kidding? GLAAD will probably give Transpoodles an award.


The Difference Between This…

…and certain gay men telling trans people to lighten up over their usage of transphobic slurs?

(No – I mean OTHER than the fact that one will get a pass from GLAAD.)


History! Repeated! Maryland Trans People Fucked Again!

HRC head Solmonese to join Obama campaign. Hmm…

Did HRC under Solmonese try to curry favor with the White House so that the President would speak at their dinners (i.e., help them fundraise) and, ultimately, offer Solmonese a cushy job in the campaign, and then the administration?  Well, it’s certainly a concern a number of us have expressed publicly before, and now it seems to be playing out just as we feared.

Whether it’s appearance or reality….

…but when trans people connect these sorts of dots (five gay male bloggers – including that one – as well as the zombie quasi-publication that used to be the Advocate lying about what a news report said, seemingly doing the lying for no other reason than to churn the existing anti-trans sentiment among the dregs of the already-overly-privileged gay elite?) we’re branded as paranoid and, even worse, not-team-players.

No appletini-laden HRC water bottles for us, eh?
