It’s past time to call these fools and trans haters out on a regular basis, and there are enough of them out there for me to skewer on a regular basis.
So let’s get this party started.
Dear Transphobic People,
One of the things I’ve been quite pissed off about is you peeps who call yourselves Republicans or conservatives, mad because you lost the Obergefell SCOTUS case, retooling and turning your anti-gay industry and Right Wing Noise Machine loose on the trans community.
You ran your standard disinformation and demonization playbook. You’ve retooled the predator myth you used on the gay community to attack trans women, and attacked our trans kids and their parents.
You started World War T expecting an easy political Culture War win you could ride to 2018 GOP primary midterm success, and have been shocked to find out that we had more allies than you thought. We’re also fighting your right wing behinds tooth and nail because frankly, you messed with us and our kids, and we have no choice but to fight you back and win.
And what made you peeps think that trans folks, who have fought tooth and nail and gone through hell to become their true selves, were going to just roll over for you?
Hell naw, we weren’t. We’re going to fight your GOP behinds tooth and nail until you leave us alone and stop attacking our humanity and human rights. .
And yeah, the slimiest people are the so called pastors pimping anti-trans hate from their pulpits and politicians like former NC governor Pat McCrory (R) and current (for now) Texas Lt/ Governor Dan ‘Potty Panic’ Patrick (R) who are pushing anti-trans hate for his political benefit next year.
But Pat McCrory found out that hatin’ on trans people isn’t the ticket to electoral success. So did former Texas House state reps Debbie Riddle (R-Tomball) and Gilbert Pena (R-Pasadena) who pushed four anti-trans bills that were defeated in the 2015 Texas Lege session and found themselves flushed by the voters outside of the Pink Dome when the 2017 session started.
We can only hope that Dan Patrick. Sen Lois Kolkhorst (R-Brenham) and Sen. Eddie Lucio, Jr’s (DINO-Brownsville) the only Democrat to vote for SB 6) political careers will suffer the same fate as SB 6 for messing with Texas trans kids and Texas trans women.
