Tomorrow is Mr T’s birthday. Mr T will be turning 64, and is still around as a actor, pitchman, and as you longtime TransGriot readers are aware of, the inspiration for the TransGriot Shut Up Fool! Awards.
It’s Friday, and my day to call out the fool, fools or group of fools that have labored mightily to show to America an the world their ignorance and WTF level arrogance.
Unlike Mr. T, I’m not taking pity on the fools, I’m calling them out. So let’s get busy as I gleefully do that.
Honorable mention number one is a group award for the GOP controlled Oklahoma Legislature. It is a body that has LGBT hater Sally Kern as one of its members, and seems to not care if the laws they pass are constitutional. In addition to passing or proposing bills to criminalize abortion and hate on trans Sooners, they just passed a resolution calling for President Obama to be impeached for standing up for the human rights of trans people.
This week’s Shut Up Fool
loser winner is TX Gov. Greg Abbott (R).
Greg Abbot continued to attack on the Texas transgender community he started during the HERO fight with a WTF rant he tweeted against the DOE/DOJ policy directive.
‘JFK wanted to send a man to the moon. Obama wants to send a man to the women’s restroom. We must get our country back on track.
Naw fool, President Obama wants to send a man to mars, but your party has thwarted that, too
News flash for your azz. trans Texans like myself exist and we not only live here, we contribute to making our state better, and we’re not going into hiding to make you or your transphobic base happy.
Greg Abbott, shut up fool!.
