  1. Some good news out of Australia Awaiting the various displays of reich wing butt hurt over this.
  2. http://krcgtv.com/news/local/questions-remain-about-death-of-transgender-teen-in-missouri The above is short. This one is longer (because the KC Star does better work than the local tv station that wants you to watch them). http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/crime/article175459621.html
  3. RIP Edith Windsor

  4. So the past few days, in Minneapolis and Edina, MN (I now live right next to Edina- I go to my gym and shop there), people have been finding these horrific anti gay fliers just EVERYWHERE. People suspect alt eighth involvement. I have attached a photo of a flyer I found; I then threw it away and encouraged everyone else local to do the same. I'm just really scared right now. Sure, there can't be a very big presence of those alt right types around here- but since I saw the flyers in places I like to go, it makes me think- what if I run into one of them? Especially since coming out as nonbinary, I know I look very not-straight. Has anyone else in other cities seen this type of literature?
  5. http://www.mambaonline.com/2017/07/03/russian-tv-channel-offers-plane-tickets-get-rid-gay-people/ Only in Russia.
  6. Mormon Church to leave Boy Scouts

    USA Today <snip> <snip> I had no idea participating in Boy Scouts was such a significant part of growing up in the Mormon faith for boys. I don't believe for a second that this has nothing to do with Boy Scouts choosing to embrace LGBTQ+ youth.
  7. I know Vicky Beeching has been discussed here before. She has been dealing with awful comments on social media. http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2017/04/21/lesbian-christian-rock-star-vicky-beeching-faces-vile-abuse-from-christians/
  8. http://www.tobyjsumpter.com/pink-hair-boys-wearing-girls-underwear/ I love my natural brown and have little desire to change it, but after reading this gem of an exhortation I'm tempted for the first time towards hot pink and neon orange. About halfway through this I had to start repeating "What an asshole" to myself over and over in order to make it through. HIs attitude towards and assumptions and judgements about trans people are sickening.
  9. Yeah, Dobson again. advocate.com/transgender/2016/6/01/james-dobson-be-man-shoot-transgender-woman-bathroom How long until he's caught wide stancing it in a airport shithouse?
  10. As a foster parent/adoptive parent this makes me so upset. After months of hard work, South Dakota lawmakers handed Governor Dennis Daugaard Senate Bill 149, a bill that allows taxpayer-funded agencies to refuse to provide any service, including adoption or foster care services, on the basis of the agency’s religious or moral convictions, according to the ACLU. Gov. Daugaard quickly signed the bill into law, making South Dakota the first state in 2017 to pass anti-LGBT legislation. The ACLU derided the new anti-LGBT bill in a press release: The American Civil Liberties Union of South Dakota has led the opposition to SB 149 through both lobbying efforts and by organizing affected communities. In a state facing a labor and talent shortage, this bill has sparked national interest and local questions as to whether South Dakota welcomes diversity and values the rights of individual citizens. This bill was opposed by local and national child welfare experts that sent letters in opposition including The Adoption Exchange, Child Welfare League of America, National Association of Social Workers, and Voice for Adoption, as well as family law experts, South Dakota pediatricians, and local and national LGBT rights organizations including the Movement Advancement Project, the Human Rights Campaign, and more. - See more at: http://www.thegailygrind.com/2017/03/11/south-dakota-becomes-first-state-2017-pass-law-legalizing-discrimination-lgbt-people/#sthash.ang50aL2.dpuf
  11. Does anyone remember former Idaho Senator Larry Craig? He resigned his position after his conviction for lewd conduct in a men's restroom in the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport became public. (No! He wasn't signalling anything! He just had "a wide stance" in the restroom!) Wikipedia seems to have a good summary of the scandal. Or if you prefer original sources, CNN has a transcript of his police interview after he was arrested. Anyway, he is apparently ready to talk to an Idaho television station, 10 years later. I found the announcement on their Twitter feed. https://mobile.twitter.com/idahoonyourside?lang=en It was posted 18 hours ago and it looked like this: (Sorry. I'm not on Twitter and I don't know how to link to it directly.) I wonder what he has to say? Or maybe it will just be a puff piece, with no hard questions asked? Hmmm....
  12. So this wandered onto my Facebook feed yesterday. It will get some attention in Kansas, but only because it is going to possibly affect the University of Kansas Basketball schedule going forward. And I may be sitting here remembering a certain travel slogan of Kansas about 8 years ago or so. Kansas - as big as you think (or something like that). Naturally, the immediate response around rather liberal Lawrence, KS was bumper stickers that read Kansas - as bigoted as you think. Needless to say that travel slogan ebbed away rather quickly. http://www.kansascity.com/news/politics-government/article128717554.html
  13. There was a big dance party protest outside of Pence's house last night, complete with biodegradable glitter. Story and pictures in the link: https://www.buzzfeed.com/jimdalrympleii/a-queer-dance-party-erupted-outside-mike-pences-dc-home

  16. Orange is the New Black

    Anyone else watching this? It's the latest Netflix original. I've been binge-watching it this weekend and it is so good. Huge female cast, diverse characters, and a trans actress playing a trans woman. (Lots of lesbian content too if you're into that.) It's gotten great reviews so far--[link=http://www.huffingtonpost.com/maureen-ryan/orange-is-the-new-black_b_3574249.html]here's[/link] one--and I really can't recommend it enough. I've been surprised at just how much I've been enjoying it.
  17. Interview in Esquire with a Mormon man who took part in church-recommended conversion therapies. There is some seriously abusive stuff going on in these programs. Trigger warning on the excerpt in the spoiler tag. These "therapies" are worse than I could have imagined. I am grieving for everyone who has been through this type of abuse.
  18. The American Family Association Holier Than Thou Society is having another meltdown. This time over Hilton Hotels; lgbtqnation.com/2016/07/bigots-explode-hilton-ad-featuring-two-happy-men-bed-together/ Here's the ad that has AFA all bent out of shape; And oh, hey wait a minute....Didn't young Joshley Duggar once work for the AFA? I wonder now if some of his Ashley Madison misadventures were at Hilton properties?
  19. Breaking news this morning: Please use this thread to provide links to *credible* news updates, to offer good thoughts and to commiserate. http://www.orlandosentinel.com/ is the local paper. I am so tired of this behavior. I don't understand the desire to annihilate Americans, humans, people . . . . Update Adding NPR story: http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/06/12/481744095/police-say-multiple-victims-after-shooting-at-orlando-nightclub
  20. http://www.christianpost.com/news/christianmingle-dating-site-needs-to-include-gays-lesbians-california-court-rules-165948/ I'm sort of surprised by the successful lawsuit since I would have assumed dating sites could include anyone they like, but I think this is good news for a lot of LGBT Christians out there.
  21. This makes me proud to be Canadian. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/windsor/ontario-drivers-licence-gender-neutral-1.3659541?cmp=rss
  22. 17 Year Old Sent to 'Pray Away the Gay' Camp

    http://www.king5.com/mb/news/family-attempting-to-free-gay-teen-from-pray-the-gay-away-camp/237165210 "The page dedicated to her release, “Save Sarah,” is not only attracting the dollars but outrage from the community. The family said that the 17-year-old’s parents sent her to a Christian boarding facility to undergo "therapy" for her "disease" after she went to prom with her girlfriend." I'm so glad this young lady's relatives are stepping in to try to free her! Save Sarah, indeed!
  23. So i imagine most of you have heard about Target letting Transgender use the bathroom of your choice and of course theres protests and boycott theres a boycott group on FB against target and urging members not to shop there and the admin just happens to be a fan of Steven Anderson aka PP so for every post someone makes the admin posts one of PP's sermons which he feels relates to this heres the link https://www.facebook.com/groups/856073327854766/ I Wouldve put this in the Steven anderson forum but since this topic is a worldly topic i put it here, if someone would like to put in the PP forum feel free to do so
  24. OK, when I was a leeeetle bitty kid (shortly after Edison invented moving pictures), Mom and Dad would let us watch Walt Disney stuff, no problems. But good heavens, Amurrica and the whole world are now in great danger of being corrupted by folks supporting the Ebil Hommaseksxual Agenda! https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/are-we-ready-for-a-gay-disney-princess-we-may-be-closer-than-you-think/2016/05/11/69d3302e-12e2-11e6-81b4-581a5c4c42df_story.html I am not sure whether it's important to be all emotional about Bucky and Pronk's subversion of the PROPER state of matrimony, or whether to be slightly relieved that they're not just fornicating all over the place in sinful open cohabitation....
  25. From the article: According to Whole Foods, no one in their store saw the slur as the man was checking out, and the bakery employee who supposedly wrote the slur is actually LGBTQ. Apparently, Whole Foods places their labels on the top of the cake box, not on the side as is shown in the photos the pastor and his lawyer are using as "evidence". Sure enough, security tapes show the labels on the top as he's checking out. People are asking how he didn't check the cake before walking out, and if he wrote the slur himself, just looking for some fast cash after a huge lawsuit. Also, in the press conference, the pastor & lawyer said Whole Foods hadn't reached out to them with anything substantive, while the article says differently. Now, Whole Foods is countersuing. The internet is ablaze with dissections of this controversy. As one article said...it was ballsy of WF to post the security footage as a response. Definitely one way to say, "Fuck it, we have nothing to hide here." It will be interesting to see how this all pans out.
