Memo to Trump: Surely you realise there are numerous transgender personnel already serving in the US military? You must know the well-known phrase 'don't ask, don't tell'. Why has it suddenly become unacceptable for transgender people to serve in the US military? I am a straight old lady and fully support the LGBT community in their struggle for equality. 

hi hun - "quick-ISH' reply for now,  Obama nixed Don't Ask, Don't Tell in 2011.  tRUMP's claim that Transgender personnel are costing the military too much $$$$ is out and out BS https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2017/07/26/the-military-spends-five-times-as-much-on-viagra-as-it-would-on-transgender-troops-medical-care/?utm_term=.d0b5d8695209

his ban could actually cost the military an estimated 960 million https://www.aol.com/article/news/2017/08/10/president-trumps-transgender-military-ban-is-estimated-to-cost/23074122/

As usual, he doesn't know the facts and his supporters believe everything and anything tRUMP says.  Like tRUMP, many of his supporters don't do their research and know NOTHING about Transgender - i saw Republicans posting photos of Corporal Max Klinger (from the 70's show MASH) stating that he was trying to get a Section 8 discharge by posing as Transgender  - OK, Klinger wasn't posing as Trans, he was a "cross dresser" - HUGE difference.  As far as their claims that being Trans or gay falls under  Section 8 - they would be wrong there as well - LGBTQ was removed from the mental health disorders in 1992

 

As a result of Trump's actions. hotlines like the Trevor Project have been flooded with calls.  Even PFLAG here in Canada have received many calls and emails from parents of LGBTQ kids and from their youth members. :(

can we all please help Trevor and toss in a vote daily? http://shoeloverscare.com/

Hello Carter. Thank you for the links: I have read right through them, with a cup of tea. Until now, I thought 'don't ask, don't tell' was still in force'. Trump mentioned the cost of medical requirements for trans personnel in the US services. How about the HUGE COSTS of paying compensation by removing trans personnel and training replacements?? This dreadful president clearly wants to turn the clock back to the time before the Civil Rights Movement. Soon only WASPS will be acceptable in the US services. How about people with orange faces?

I just have a feeling that Charlottesville is going to be a turning point.  People can't turn a blind eye and make excuses for that kind of behavior anymore.  And people are coming down on Trump HARD, even the usually conservative sources.  Both for inspiring the behavior with his hateful rhetoric, and for not calling out the perpetrators afterward.

Wow.

Happening now: another alt-right rally, this time in Seattle.  Riot police are holding back an extremely angry crowd of hundreds of counter-protesters, who are trying to get to the racist bastards.

This isn't over.  It feels like the '70's again.

It's just beginning.  Trump is cornered and fighting back.  He's going down fighting.  It is rumored to get much  much worse before it ends.  Trump has lots of protection in high places.  I'd rather not be a part of this kind of history.  

I'm thinking of you often, Galore.  Stay safe.

A white-supremacist/neo-nazi/fascist/KKK plows his car into a group of counter-protestors, killing one and injuring 20.  And our f**king idiot president refuses to call them out by name because he doesn't want to alienate his base!!!  Instead, he blames it on 'many sides'  

Hey Donnie:  flipping the bird emoticon 

We have a Klan march planned here this week. I start school on Monday - that's where I've been, preparing for all of that - and the University sent out an email warning people that violence will not be tolerated, that we are a pluralistic campus. that white nationalists, nazis, kkk (all mentioned BY NAME) are not welcome. Wonder if they will still try to hold the rally. Their permit was rejected.

There can be no equivalency between fascist nazis and their hate vs. people protesting hate. And Trump needs to say so. He won't of course, considering who is in the west wing. Even G.W. Bush and Poppy Busy, who largely stay out of this stuff as they are retired from politics now, had to put out a statement rebuking Trump. This is getting very dangerous.

Richard Spencer says he will be filing a complaint against the University of Florida at Gainesville.  UF rejected his application for a speech he was planning for September.  UF is claiming that there was a lot of buzz on websites about 'bringing the violence to Gainesville'.  Since this is all going down in the week following Charlottesville, UF's claim of trying to prevent a 'realistic threat of imminent danger' will probably hold up in court.

Gotta love the south, eh @galorecamping2  :blink:

Adam's tweet got a mention in WaPo!!!  Scroll down (about halfway through the article) to see his tweet, right above Chelsea Clinton's (such good company :) )

You know the problem with VP Pence? He's still hiding in the closet. People with very aggressive homophobic opinions clearly have something to hide about themselves.

Many have said this. There's a reason he won't go anyplace without Mother Pence at his side. Wonder what that could be? /sarcasm. What concerns me is that Trump really doesn't care about this issue at all. BUT - he has appointed people who are bigots and are enacting their policies.

 

BTW, sorry for my long absence! Being a poli sci major is...interesting...in these times, but I'm taking 18 hours AND working full time. So, Shannon is very, very busy! Love you all!!

I'm used to it. I was gay bashed here in 2004 with my then-partner in the parking lot of a bar. The assailants spent not one day behind bars. The racism is so ridiculous now that there are no words for it. I haven't taken the Clinton/Kaine sticker off my car. I regularly get accosted by Trump supporters over it. They are emboldened. I've even had n bombs hurled at me.

I'm so sorry that is happening to you @galorecamping2  :(

 

@foxeylady These people are just emboldened by Trump. The white supremacists ARE the federal government now. This is not new- it's just at the highest levels of government for the first time since the civil war. What really broke my heart is that after Charlottesville, my 89 year old grandma, who is in kidney failure and has dementia, said in a rare lucid moment:  "I am so sorry. I thought we put this down. I never thought I'd have to tell my grown grandchildren to beware of the Klan. We faced those firehoses and dogs so you wouldn't have to."

Really sad stuff.

Really, really sad @galorecamping2  I hate the things that are happening now!!  :angry:

Richard Spencer had his day at UF after all.  He was there Thursday.  According to the news reports though, he was barely able to say anything.  Shouted down through his entire speech.  I hope that's a movement, and not just a moment.  

Afterwards, he shouted at the crowd of 2500 protesters "The world will see UF in a different way because of the way you behaved".  

Yeah, I hope he's right.

I'm hopeful, but I know it's partly because I haven't gone through all the sh*t you have to face.
