Jun 15 Last of the Time Lords commented on Resigned ACLU Director Is Coming to Tacoma on Thursday to Support Anti-Trans Ballot Measure.
Trans people have been using the restrooms of the gender they identify with for decades in this country and didn't become an issue until less than 36 months ago.

It really puts into question how the contractor's were vetted to begin with. Or was it just "the cheapest we can find" sort of mentality?

@7, you're bitter and upset because in your heart of hearts this won't lead to anything. And the real horror is it won't change after November...no matter who wins short of a 1932 FDR style victory for the Democrats.

But the No Fly List has been proven to be riddled with errors and problems. And clearly the surveillance state we have build up over the past 20 years is failing miserably except for putting money into various contractors pockets.....
Jun 15 Last of the Time Lords commented on What We Find in Gay Bars and Queer Clubs.
@7, thank you. Marriage equality was a huge step forward but as soon as that happened many of the better of gays here in Seattle immediately turned their backs on the other problems that the community still faces. Maybe the tragedy in Orlando will get some of these "rich fags" who work at places ...well we know where they work, to pay attention to more than just the new Audi they have been eyeing. We are lucky to live in a pretty safe part of the country but there's still a lot of pain out there and if we are a community we do have an obligation to help.

Laddies and gents I give the classic Social Justice Warrior mentality.

At least she made it perfectly clear that micro-aggression shall not go unpunished. I expect a full boycott of that business immediately. And we can add a line of protesters stopping people from patronizing it as well.

This is seriously fucking embarrassing and as others have said: NOT HELPING!!

@9 and @18 if the Middle East is a bastion of liberty and freedom then by all means move there. Just stop taking a shit on Western Values that provide you the freedom to say and think what you want to. But I know.....we can't attack Islam as they throw gays off the tops of roofs (and say nothing) or blow them away at a nightclub.

But hey, you think the West is laughable so please move to Iraq or Iran. And Saudi Arabia is lovely this time of year.

I'd like to see the leaders of the Islamic faith here in the United States lead their faith in a reformation that truly brings Islam to become compatible with western values of freedom and respect of the individual. I'd like to see those leaders get ahead of the next terrorist attack and try to prevent it with ideas instead of trying to distance themselves from the terrorism after it happens.

Yes, Islamic faith leaders need to lead their flocks instead of being drug around by the lunatics who murder in their faiths name. Simply put, the mosques here in the United States need to grow a backbone and stand up for what's right not just for themselves but for everyone.

If our local Muslim community is genuine in their concern of this sort of violence then they will encourage their followers to stand with the GLBTQ community on June 26th here in Seattle. I'm sure that the Pride Committee will let them even have some stage time at Seattle Center.
Jun 13 Last of the Time Lords commented on Mother of Man Missing in Orlando: "Please, Can We Do Something with the Assault Weapons so That We Can Stop This".
I'd like to think this will lead to some sort of gun reform but we all know it won't, I'd like to think this will lead us to recognize that many parts of our country still allow gays and lesbians to be discriminated against when it comes to employment and housing but that seems unlikely and I'd like to think Islam would look at it's own desperate need to reform itself instead of spending time claiming these sort of attacks aren't what they are about but I know that won't happen either.

The sad reality of where we are at is the horror of Bloody Sunday won't change shit. Things will only get worse. And we will see more of these attacks in the future.

CNN is pushing that this was ISIS inspired attack. Whatever the hell that means. Though lots of pointless prayers are being offered to the family and victims...

Tell me again how religion makes us better people?
