Caitlyn Jenner’s Response to Transgender Ban Exemplifies My Biggest Issue with Republicans

When it comes to Republicans, in particular Trump supporters, there’s a litany of things that disgust me about them that I could list here. From the bigotry, to the racism, to the outright ignorance it takes to believe a con man like Trump should be president, it’s all absolutely inexcusable. As some have joked, myself […]

North Carolina Governor Reaches Shameful New Low Against the LGBT Community

To say that things haven’t gone well for the state of North Carolina following Governor Pat McCrory’s passage of House Bill 2, a highly discriminatory anti-LGBT law, would be an understatement. Not only has it cost the state jobs, but many big-name events have been cancelled ranging from concerts to the NBA moving their annual […]

Lesbians Suing NJ Over Law Requiring Heterosexual Sex Before Insurance Covers Medical Procedure (Video)

A great way to see how utterly ignorant parts of our nation have been (and continue to be) is to look at some older state and local laws – many of which are still, technically, in practice today. Such as a law in New Jersey concerning insurance companies and the legal requirements for covering fertility treatments for […]

Bigoted Fox News Moron Stacey Dash Has A Bathroom Solution for Trans People: ‘Go in the Bushes’

If 24-hour cable news, the Internet and social media existed during the days of segregation, the civil rights movement and bans on interracial marriage, the nasty and disgusting hatred we would have seen during that time would have been overwhelming. Even without these methods of information and communication, the ignorance of so many that was documented […]

Shameful: House Republicans Secretly Change Votes on Equality Measure to Defeat It At the Last Second

It’s no secret that the vast majority of the Republican party opposes equality for the LGBT community. While there’s been some evolution on this issue, many within the GOP are still so beholden to the far-right base to win primary elections that they frequently continue to embrace this discriminatory bigotry to appease some of the most ignorant […]

Henry Rollins Absolutely Crushes North Carolina Anti-LGBT Law in Masterfully Worded Column

Much has been made lately (and rightfully so) concerning the passage of an anti-LGBT law in North Carolina that’s considered one of the most strict and discriminatory in the country. Not only does it legalize blatant discrimination, but it actually prevents individual cities or towns from trying to pass their own laws to protect LGBT rights. Though […]

John Oliver Perfectly Explains What North Carolina Republicans Don’t Understand About Bathrooms (Video)

In case you haven’t heard, the state of North Carolina just passed some fairly extreme legislation targeted at the LGBT community. Essentially what it does is it makes it illegal for any city or town to pass any sort of laws that would protect gay Americans from discrimination. Or to put it in another way, […]

Christian Right Weekly Round-Up: Pastor Pillow, Franklin Graham and Jerry Falwell, Jr. Walk Into a Bar Mitzvah

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! Jerry, Jr., Franklin. Franklin, Jerry, Jr. I can hardly believe this is the first time the three of us have met—though of course I knew your fathers well. Sorry, Franklin, don’t want to bury your dad alongside Jerry, Sr., quite yet. But even I’ve got to admit that Billy would probably […]

GOP Rep. Glenn Grothman: Same-Sex Marriage Is ‘Offensive’ To Civil War Dead

One of the more ridiculous arguments made by Confederate flag supporters is that if the flag that stood for opposition to desegregation and the Civil Rights Act is offensive to black Americans, then the gay pride flag should be banned because it is offensive to Christians. Yes, there really are people saying this all over […]

Roy Moore’s Lawyer Says Alabama Governor Must Defy Supreme Court Ruling, Choose ‘God Or Satan’

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s ruling last Friday legalizing same-sex marriage across the country, the remaining states where it wasn’t already legal have, for the most part, gone ahead and grudgingly joined the 21st century. Even here in Louisiana, despite the initially defiant tone by Bobby Jindal that quickly became a whimper, couples […]
