The Trans Eliminationist Project

December 10, 2010

Jackbooted neo-Janice Raymond-ism by any other name

…is still also jackbooted christianist thuggery masquerading as lesbian feminism:

Six of one batch of hate-filled pieces of garbage, half a dozen of another batch of hate-filled pieces of garbage.

A Question for Marriage Derangement Syndrome Sufferers

July 8, 2009

If the Obama Administration stated in no uncertain terms that, of the DOMA repeal and public-option national healthcare,  it is only politically possible to achieve one during this congressional session (1) would you accept the administration’s position and, if so, (2) would you be willing to let the DOMA repeal slide in favor of public-option national healthcare?

If the answer to either question is ‘no,’ then why are you willing to sacrifice the health and well-being of hundreds of millions of Americans in favor of your personal interest in same-sex marriage?

And if you don’t anderstand the question at all, go back and look at whatever your position might have been on trans-inclusion in ENDA in 2007.  If you took the Aravosisistic position that holding out for trans-inclusion was sacrificing (a moving-goalpost number of) millions of gays and lesbians for the interests of (a diminutively moving-goalpost number of) trans people, then submit your photo to your friendly, neighborhood dictionary publisher…

for use as an illustration for the word “hypocrite.”

Putting the ‘Con’ in Connecticut

March 19, 2009

I’ll probably comment more on this later, but right now I’m loking at the Judiciary Committee hearing on the bill to rectify the gay-only rights law in Connecticut. 

Some putz named Peter Wolfgang – from the (so-called) Family Institute of Connecticut – is testifying.  Not surprisingly, he’s fixating on cross-dressing teachers and gender flip-floppers.

Thank you Evelle Younger and Riki Wilchins.

A Good Night to Go to a Hockey Match or to Famous Dave’s BBQ

Or both.

From Lavender:

Mara Keisling, Executive Director of the National Center for Transgender Equality is coming to the Twin Cities for a town hall meeting on transgender rights.

There goes the neighborhood.

Open Thread: Fuck you, (fill in the blank)

November 7, 2007

I think some of us need a place to vent. Enjoy. I’ll start us off.

Fuck you, Barney Frank, for offering Democrats a “compromise” that allows them to pretend to do something important while still isolating part of our queer community for being “too queer.”


Update: Oh, just to make it clear: This is a thread where we can get out all our anger so that we can be more productive on this and other blogs.

The World Series to ENDA All Series

October 22, 2007

World Series 2007: The team from a state with a trans-inclusive civil rights law vs. the team from a state with a transphobic gay-only law.





 Yeh, okay, there is that lingering concern about the Rockies preferring players with “character” (and we all know what that’s a codeword for.)

Still, I see it as Colorado (the state) vs. Massachusetts (the state) – a state with a trans-inclusive law vs. a state that not only has a transphobic gay-only law but also has given us the congressman who wants to pass a federal vrsion of his state’s trsnsphobic gay-only law.

The (Apparently) Self-Loathing Trans Presidential Candidate

October 22, 2007

And – no – I’m not talking about Hedda Lettuce.

This isn’t directly tied to ENDA – nevertheless, a hat-tip goes out to Autumn Sandeen over at Pam’s House Blend for pointing this out: Rudy ‘I Own 9/11 and Three Marriage Licenses’ Giuliani decided to use trans people as a punch line in defense of his position against an anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment.

I don’t think we need a constitutional amendment at this point.

I did 210 weddings when I was mayor of New York City. So I have experience doing this. They were all men and women.


I hope.



GIULIANI: You got to give me a little slack here. It was New York City, you know, but it’s not just a religious institution.

Thst’s enough from Rudy.  Now, I’ll turn to Autumn: “As a transwoman, I’ll remember that joke — and I’ll especially remember it when it comes time to vote.”


Open Thread: Gimme some links

October 9, 2007

Let’s start off with an open thread where you can post links in the comments.

Give us some blogs to blogroll. Point out some people who have written nice stuff about this topic. News articles about ENDA are welcome (yeah, we know about Salon). You can even promote your own blog here.
