WTF?! – Democrats Help Defeat LGBT Protections Attached To Spending Bill

Democrats help voyr down LGBT protections

For the past few days we hate talked about openly gay US House Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney who finally succeeded in pushing through an amendment that would put President Obama’s executive order on federal contractors into law.  Last night Democrats in the House overwhelming voted against the bill helping to defeat it

The Hill explains

Most Democrats voted against the bill due to its spending levels and policy riders. Taken together with Republicans who opposed the LGBT measure, the legislation didn’t have enough votes to pass Thursday.

It failed 112-305, with 130 Republicans — more than half of the House GOP caucus — joining all but six Democrats to sink the Energy Department spending bill.

House GOP leaders could still try to bring spending bills to the floor. But they may start considering them under a more limited process that prevents lawmakers in either party from offering unlimited amendments.

Asked whether the House can pass more spending bills this year, Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) said, “I think so, yeah,” adding that ending the open amendment process would “be considered.” “We’ll adapt to the circumstances and move on,” he said.

The bill’s failure Thursday marks the second time in two weeks lawmakers have waged a very public fight on the House floor over protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

There you go.  Dysfunctional politics in action at its best.

NYC Drag Icon Lady Bunny Weighs In On The Word “Tranny”: “I’m sick of people thinking they can ban words.”

Lady Bunny and RuPaul


In a recent interview with Paper Magazine, longtime drag personality and NYC icon Lady Bunny spoke on her new show Clown Syndrome and during the interview offered her opinions on the use of the word “tranny”.

And he pulled no punches:

Tranny is an abbreviation for transvestite and transsexual, so I’m free to use it since I fall with that category. Much as blacks can use the N-word. I know tranny from London, where they abbreviate everything — breakfast is brekkie, biscuit is biccie. Tranny is used affectionately on the club scene. Even transsexual advocates like Jayne County and Kate Bornstein have come out and said that these words aren’t necessarily slurs.[snip]

And I’m sick of people thinking they can ban words because they make them feel bad. Boo hoo for you! Any time we choose a different path in life, we’re going to get shit for it — whether you choose to be openly gay, trans or even a straight guy with tattoos all over his face. If you don’t have the balls to take s–t, then choose an easy path. And for huge gay organizations like GLAAD to join in to censor Ru or anyone else confuses me. “Gender bender” is on GLAAD’s list of banned words. That’s what Frank-n-Furter, David Bowie and Sylvester were–that’s not a slur except to the most precious, uptight goody two-shoes.

Ohhhhhhh guuuuurl. Shits about to get REAL!


READ: Statement by the President on the Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Uganda.

White House


Office of the Press Secretary

Statement by the President on the Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Uganda

As a country and a people, the United States has consistently stood for the protection of fundamental freedoms and universal human rights.  We believe that people everywhere should be treated equally, with dignity and respect, and that they should have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential, no matter who they are or whom they love.

That is why I am so deeply disappointed that Uganda will shortly enact legislation that would criminalize homosexuality.  The Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Uganda, once law, will be more than an affront and a danger to the gay community in Uganda.  It will be a step backward for all Ugandans and reflect poorly on Uganda’s commitment to protecting the human rights of its people.  It also will mark a serious setback for all those around the world who share a commitment to freedom, justice and equal rights.

As we have conveyed to President Museveni, enacting this legislation will complicate our valued relationship with Uganda.  At a time when, tragically, we are seeing an increase in reports of violence and harassment targeting members of the LGBT community from Russia to Nigeria, I salute all those in Uganda and around the world who remain committed to respecting the human rights and fundamental human dignity of all persons.

Perhaps President Obama should say something next year when he attends the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. since many of them are responsible.

HRC Slams Putin On ABC Interview, Still Does Not Call For Boycott of Sochi Olympics

Blah blah blah

The Human Rights Campaign has responded with a strongly worded press release to the comments made by Vladimir Putin on yesterday’s broadcast of ABC’s This Week.

I am sure Vladimir Putin is quaking in fear.

“Today on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Russian President Vladimir Putin defended Russia’s anti-LGBT law, saying gays and lesbians are not discriminated against in Russia and the law is aimed at protecting children.  Despite Putin’s claim the law does not discriminate, just yesterday a protester was detained for unfurling a rainbow flag during the Olympic Torch relay.  Violence against LGBT Russians has also been on the rise since the anti-gay law was passed last June.

“President Putin’s public interpretation of the country’s anti-LGBT law is beyond comprehension,” said HRC President Chad Griffin.  “This law was designed to do nothing less than secure second class status for LGBT Russians and visitors.  It does nothing to protect children, but goes great lengths to harm families.”  

Putin told Stephanopoulos athletes who protest or wear a rainbow pin will not be prosecuted under the law, noting there is a small difference between protesting the law and violating it.  His statements today contradict those of government officials who last year said visitors are not exempt from.  Under the law foreigners can not only be fined, but also face arrest and up to 15 days in jail, followed by eventual deportation. 

Putin also compared the country’s anti-LGBT law with those of some U.S. states, saying laws are still on the books criminalizing homosexuality.  Stephanopoulos promptly corrected the Russian President, explaining to him the Supreme Court struck down those laws. 

“Americans, and the citizens of the world are against archaic and dangerous laws that single out a group of people,” Griffin added.  “The blatant lie that gays and lesbians are not discriminated at all in Russia only serves to undermine Putin’s credibility around the globe.”

Last year, the law banning “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations” was passed by Russia’s Federal Assembly and signed into law by President Vladimir Putin.  Under the guise of protecting children from “homosexual propaganda,” the law imposes fines or jail time on citizens who disseminate information that may cause a “distorted understanding” that LGBT and heterosexual relationships are “socially equivalent.” The fines are significantly higher if such information is distributed through the media or Internet.

To this date the Human Rights Campaign has refused to call for or join in a boycott for the Sochi Olympics, any of its sponsors, or NBC which will be airing the 2014 Olympics.



White House To Do Extra "Deep Cleaning" and Disinfect Before Joe Biden Arrives on Jan. 20

President Obama’s Remarks From The LGBT Pride Month Reception – YAWN!


Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release                           June 13, 2013



East Room

5:21 P.M. EDT

     THE PRESIDENT:  All right, I will not beat that act.  (Laughter.)  We could not be prouder of Zea and Luna for the introduction.  And welcome, all of you, to the White House for Pride Month.  (Applause.)

 Zea and Luna are here with their moms, and also I think with Grandma and Grandpa — correct?  And so feel free to congratulate them afterwards for their outstanding introduction.  

 There are a few other folks who don’t have the same star wattage that I want to acknowledge — first of all, my Vice President, Joe Biden.  (Applause.)  We’ve got some outstanding members of Congress here, including a record number from the Congressional Equality Caucus.  (Applause.)  Eric Fanning, the Under Secretary of the Air Force, is here.  (Applause.)  Major General Patricia Rose and her wife, Retired Lieutenant Julie Roth, are here.  (Applause.)  We’ve got Fred Hochberg and Elaine Kaplan, two outstanding members of my team, who are here.  (Applause.)  And John Berry is here — John is a former member of my team.  You may not recognize him because he looks so well rested now that he’s left the administration.  (Laughter.)      

 And even though she couldn’t be here today, because she’s getting ready to finally take her seat on the bench and get to work, I want to congratulate Nitza Quinones Alejandro, who, just a few hours ago, was confirmed by the Senate, making her the first openly gay Hispanic federal judge in our country’s history. (Applause.)  

 And what I’m especially excited about, in addition to Zea and Luna, we’ve got citizens from all across the country who wrote me letters over the last several years.  And in a letter from Kathleen, a young woman from Massachusetts, I saw someone who had experienced too much discrimination and hatred at such a young age, at the age of 24.  But I also read about someone who dreams of becoming a doctor so that she can help others, and who is determined to make a difference because, as she put it, she is “hopeful of a world filled with love.”

 Love is what I saw in Valerie and Diane’s letter from North Dakota, who’ve been together for 37 years.  Their son, Madison, is here, 14.  They told me that when Madison was little — he’s not little now, by the way.  (Laughter.)  He used to say that someday, he was going to become president and make it legal for his moms to get married.  And now, they added, “I don’t think we’re going to have to wait that long.”  (Applause.)

 Madison, I agree with you that it’s time.  I agree that you should run for president.  (Laughter.)  And I agree that we’re not going to have to wait that long — because from Minnesota to Maryland, from the United States Senate to the NBA, it’s clear we’re reaching a turning point.  (Applause.)  We’ve become not just more accepting; we’ve become more loving, as a country, and as a people.  Hearts and minds change with time.  Laws do, too.  Change like that isn’t something that starts here in Washington, but it’s something that has the power that Washington has a great deal of difficulty resisting over time. 

 It’s something that comes from the courage of those who stood up, and sat in, and came out.  It’s something that comes from the compassion of family and friends and coworkers and teammates who show their love and support.  (Baby cries.)  Yes, it’s true.  (Laughter.)   

 And it’s something that can be traced back to our Declaration of Independence — the fundamental principle that all of us are created equal.  And as I said in my Inaugural Address, if we truly are created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.  (Applause.) 

 That’s the principle that’s guided my administration over the past four and a half years.  We passed a hate crimes bill in Matthew Shepard’s name.  (Applause.)  We lifted the HIV entry ban, released the first national HIV/AIDS strategy.  We strengthened the Violence Against Women Act to protect LGBT victims.  (Applause.)  We told hospitals that accept Medicare and Medicaid that they have to treat LGBT patients just like everybody else.  (Applause.)  Starting next year, the Affordable Care Act will ban insurance companies from denying someone from coverage just for being LGBT.  We put in place new policies that treat transgender Americans with dignity and respect.  (Applause.)  And because no one should have to hide who they love to serve the country that they love, we ended “don’t ask, don’t tell” once and for all.  (Applause.)  

 But part of the reason we’re here is because we know we’re not done yet.  When Zea and Luna wrote me last December, they told me they would have voted for me if they could have — thanks, guys.  (Laughter.)  They also laid out quite an agenda.  I hope Congress is listening to them. 

 But I want them and all of you to know that I’m not giving up the fight to keep our kids safe from gun violence.  (Applause.)  I’m not giving up the fight for smarter and better schools.  I’ll continue to support marriage equality and states’ attempts to legalize it, including in my home state of Illinois. We’re not giving up on that.  (Applause.) 

 And as we saw earlier this year with the gun safety debate, sometimes this stuff takes time, and it’s frustrating.  You take two steps forward and sometimes there’s a step back.  But I deeply believe in something that Martin Luther King, Jr. said often, and that is that the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.  Eventually, America gets it right. 

That doesn’t mean we can be patient.  We know from our own history that change happens because people push to make it happen.  We’ve got to do the hard work of educating others, showing empathy to others, changing hearts and minds.  And when we do that, then change occurs.  It doesn’t come always as quickly as we like, but progress comes. 

 We’ve got to keep pushing.  We’ve got to make access to health care more available and affordable for folks living with HIV.  We’ve got to implement the protections in the Affordable Care Act.  We’ve got to keep making our classrooms and our neighborhoods safe for all of our young people. 

 And I agree with Susan, a PFLAG mom from Ohio — we’ve got to end LGBT discrimination in the places where we work.  Susan wrote me and said, “If I have a concern it is that there are so many LGBT men and women who contribute to the wealth and growth of our nation … but they still are not protected from harassment in the workplace.” 

And I share that concern.  In 34 states, you can be fired just because of who you are or who you love.  That’s wrong.  We’ve got to change it.  There’s a bipartisan bill moving forward in the Senate that would ban discrimination against all LGBT Americans in the workplace, now and forever.  We need to get that passed.  (Applause.)  I want to sign that bill.  We need to get it done now.  (Applause.)

 And I think we can make that happen — because after the last four and a half years, you can’t tell me things can’t happen.  Look around.  We’ve got gay and lesbian soldiers, and sailors, and airmen, and Marines who are here today.  We’ve got married couples from places like New York and Washington State.  (Applause.)  You’ve got a couple of guys here on stage who I don’t think anybody in their high schools thought would be the President and the Vice President of the United States.  (Laughter.)  So don’t tell me that things can’t happen when we put our minds to them.  (Laughter.) 

 The genius of America is that America can change.  And people who love this country can change it.  That’s what we’re called to do.  And I hope that when we gather here next year, and the year after that, we’ll be able to say, with pride and confidence, that together we’ve made our fellow citizens a little more free.  We’ve made this country a little more equal.  We’ve made our world a little more full of love.

 Thank you very much, everybody.  God bless you.  God bless America.  (Applause.)  Enjoy the party.  (Applause.)

Keep digging through that horseshit kids there must be a pony in there somewhere because obviously there is no EXECUTIVE ORDER banning LGBT Discrimination for people who work with Federal Contractors or any real promises from the President himself for any work that he himself actually can do to get ENDA passed.


White House Releases 2013 Presidential​ Proclamation​ for LGBT Pride Month – Meh.

For Immediate Release  

May 31, 2013





For more than two centuries, our Nation has struggled to transform the ideals of liberty and equality from founding promise into lasting reality.  Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans and their allies have been hard at work on the next great chapter of that history — from the patrons of The Stonewall Inn who sparked a movement to service members who can finally be honest about who they love to brave young people who come out and speak out every day.

This year, we celebrate LGBT Pride Month at a moment of great hope and progress, recognizing that more needs to be done. 

Support for LGBT equality is growing, led by a generation which understands that, in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”  In the past year, for the first time, voters in multiple States affirmed marriage equality for same-sex couples.  State and local governments have taken important steps to provide much-needed protections for transgender Americans.

My Administration is a proud partner in the journey toward LGBT equality.  We extended hate crimes protections to include attacks based on sexual orientation or gender identity and repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”  We lifted the HIV entry ban and ensured hospital visitation rights for LGBT patients.  Together, we have investigated and addressed pervasive bullying faced by LGBT students, prohibited discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in Federal housing, and extended benefits for same-sex domestic partners.  Earlier this year, I signed a reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity in the implementation of any VAWA-funded program.  And because LGBT rights are human rights, my Administration is implementing the first-ever Federal strategy to advance equality for LGBT people around the world.

We have witnessed real and lasting change, but our work is not complete.  I continue to support a fully inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act, as well as the Respect for Marriage Act.  My Administration continues to implement the Affordable Care Act, which beginning in 2014, prohibits insurers from denying coverage to consumers based on their sexual orientation or gender identity, as well as the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, which addresses the disparate impact of the HIV epidemic among certain LGBT sub-communities.  We have a long way to go, but if we continue on this path together, I am confident that one day soon, from coast to coast, all of our young people will look to the future with the same sense of promise and possibility.  I am confident because I have seen the talent, passion, and commitment of LGBT advocates and their allies, and I know that when voices are joined in common purpose, they cannot be stopped.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2013 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.  I call upon the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirty-first day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand thirteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-seventh.

Barack Obama

Nice proclamation and some serious self-serving plugs.  But really Barack , what have you done lately?

Have you signed the Executive Order banning LGBT discrimination in companies that hold Federal contracts?  No you refuse to.

Did you insist that LGBT immigrants were protected and added to the Immigration Reform Act? No you were the first to sacrifice LGBT immigrants and bi-national couples instead of fighting the GOP.

Are you actively working Congress and pushing Senators to sign on and pass ENDA quickly?  The Magic 8 Ball says NO.  And so does the news from Washington.

And by the way.  Not only are LGBT rights human right.  They are also civil rights.  You seemed to accidentally leave that out.

So thanks for the pretty words…….  AGAIN.

But now that you’ve done all the easy things in your first term, you’ve still YET to stand up and do anything substantial.




Obama Delivers 2013 State of the Union Address, Avoids Employment Non-Discrimination Act Again

Obama SOTU

President Obama delivered his State of the Union speech last night and while mentioning LGBT Americans twice he did not tackle the subject of employment non-discrimination directly once again only alluding to it off handedly and talking about benefits for gay and lesbian solders which make up about .0005 % of the population.

Said Obama:

As long as I’m Commander-in-Chief, we will do whatever we must to protect those who serve their country abroad, and we will maintain the best military in the world.  We will invest in new capabilities, even as we reduce waste and wartime spending.  We will ensure equal treatment for all service members, and equal benefits for their families – gay and straight.  We will draw upon the courage and skills of our sisters and daughters, because women have proven under fire that they are ready for combat.  We will keep faith with our veterans – investing in world-class care, including mental health care, for our wounded warriors; supporting our military families; and giving our veterans the benefits, education, and job opportunities they have earned.

It is our unfinished task to restore the basic bargain that built this country – the idea that if you work hard and meet your responsibilities, you can get ahead, no matter where you come from, what you look like, or who you love


Heather Cronk of GetEQUAL:

“Time and time again, President Obama continues to pay lip service to employment equity, but refuses to take the simple step of signing an Executive Order that would end LGBT discrimination by federal contractors — and that would prevent taxpayer dollars, including taxpayer dollars from LGBT Americans, from going to discriminatory companies.  He had his pen out today to sign other Executive Orders — it’s incumbent on the LGBT community to ask why he decided to put that pen away before protecting 25% of the American workforce from workplace discrimination.”

Its time for Obama to put up or shut up because his words and crumbs aren’t fooling anyone except the Human Rights Campaign any longer.  Obama needs to use his political capital to push ENDA as one on HIS initiatives (rather than if you bring it to me I will sign it) or sign the Executive Order, which is at least a start in the right direction.

FIERCE Advocate My Ass! – White House States That Gay Marriage IS NOT A Federal Issue

Well President Obama has done it again.

Less than 24 hours after saying in his Inaugural Address that “our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”  White House Press Secretary Jay Carney yesterday stated that President Obama believes that same-sex marriage is a “states issue” and not Federal and that the White House would not actively move to oppose Proposition 8, which sits before the Supreme Court:

NBC News’ Kristen Welker was first to ask whether the remarks — which suggested a national call to support marriage equality — represent a shift in Obama’s way of thinking from his previous position that marriage should be left to the states and not handled at the federal level.

“The President’s position on this has been clear in terms of his personal views.”

“He believes that individuals who love each other should not be barred from marriage. He talks about this not about religious sacraments, but civil marriage. And that continues to inform his beliefs. We have taken position on various efforts to restrict the rights of Americans, which he generally thinks is a bad idea.”

Carney also indicated that Obama’s believes Section 3 of DOMA, which prohibits federal recognition of same-sex marriage, is unconstitutional based on the belief that the federal government shouldn’t be involved in marriage.

“One the reasons why we believe that Section 3 of DOMA is not constitutional is because we should not addressing it in that way,” Carney said and then moved on to the issue of Prop 8.

“Well, as you know, the administration is not party to that case and I have nothing more for you on that. We have, as you, know through the Department of Justice taken an active role in DOMA cases, which is why I can tell you the things I told you about that. But on this Section 8 case, we’re not involved.

Heather Cronk from GetEQUAL responds:

“After such a stirring speech by the President during Monday’s inaugural ceremony, it was disappointing to hear Jay Carney go back to the same old ‘states rights’ argument that has plagued civil rights movements of the past. As we move closer to a Supreme Court decision on marriage equality, we hope that the President again ‘evolves’ on his view of LGBT relationships.”

For me personally I find the White House’s and thereby the President’s answer on this question is profoundly bigoted and homophobic and I wish that people would begin to see that.

If the issue was about inter-faith or inter-racial marriage would the President and the White House say the same thing?  Of course not.  And this shouldn’t be about the President’s “personal views” it should be about whats right according to the Constitution of the United States.

We need to face facts and turn our back on the hyperbole.  Obama is all talk, and the only time he takes action, takes an actual step forward, is because we’re having to take out his knees with a crowbar.  We had to push hard to get DADT done. So hard in fact that GetEQUAL had to lead a protest of  Lesbian and Gay vets and supporters to chain themselves to the White House while Obama dragged his feet. And in actuality all of his “accomplishments” for the LGBT community have been “work arounds” of  DOMA  (Defense of Marriage Act) while not really attacking it.

Far too many organizations in the LGBT community are empowering the oppression against us by failing to hold our leader, the Democratic Party and our “friends” accountable. and this has got to stop.

Hopefully all those people and professionals in the LGBT equality business aka Gay Inc. (HRC, GLAAD, The Task Force). who were gushing over Obama and a shout-out to Stonewall on Monday  just got a reality check. As I’ve repeatedly said, Obama has suckered the lot of you.  All he had to do was whisper “sweet nothings” in your ears and you laid down and let him walk all over you and actually do nothing for equality. Empty words. All talk and no action for equality.

The U.S. Constitution protects these rights of the people from infringement by the states. And as long as DOMA stands on the books, same-sex marriage is indeed a Federal Issue.

President Obama Mentions The Stonewall Riots and LGBT Equality During Inauguration Speech – Video

Obama sppech stonewall

President Obama has become the first President in the History of the United States to mention the Lesbian and Gay Community and equality for the community and all United States citizens in his Inaugural speech:

“We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths – that all of us are created equal – is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.

It is now our generation’s task to carry on what those pioneers began.  For our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts.  Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”

During his first four years President Obama’s “fierce advocacy” has been questioned by more than a few in the LGBT community due to the lack of movement on big issue items like the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, The Defense of Marriage Act and having to be forcefully pushed to speed up  Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. 

While the mention in President Obama’s speech is a great shout out to the GLBT Community the question still remains.

Will President in action, not words help lead the journey to FULL LGBT EQUALITY in his second term?

Of course all the professional LGBT Oragnizations are gushing and fawning over the President about the mention. But lets see if they’ll hold him to his words and push him into action.

Freedom To Marry

In his second Inaugural today, President Obama traced the moral arc from Seneca Falls to Selma to Stonewall, and rightly exalted the struggle for the freedom to marry as part of America’s moral commitment to equality, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Freedom to Marry applauds our president and the moral leadership he has shown, the moral leadership we will continue to need until all Americans, all loving couples, all families, can share fully in the American promise we celebrate on Inauguration Day.


Today, President Obama made history with a clear and passionate declaration of the fundamental rights of LGBT Americans, and all Americans. We honor the work of his first term – especially his leadership in the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” – and expect great progress over the next four years on the very real inequalities that exist for our LGBT service members, veterans, and their families as we work together to bend the moral arc of the universe toward justice.

National Gay & LesbianTask Force

We couldn’t agree more. It’s now time for the president — and for all of us — to finish the job of ensuring that every American gets a fair shake. President Obama has repeatedly shown he is willing to fight for us. We have another four years to keep the momentum going, and will be vigilant in pursuing policies to ensure our community is not left behind. This includes pushing for federal LGBT employment protections, ending the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, combating HIV/ADS, preserving a social safety net, and much more. America deserves nothing less than a president who will treat all families fairly. We congratulate President Obama and his administration and look forward to working with them in this second term to build a stronger future for LGBT people and opportunity for all.

Is "Bitch" The NEW "N" Word? – Rant of the Day

bitch – noun \ˈbich\

1: the female of the dog or some other carnivorous mammals

2a : a lewd or immoral woman b : a malicious, spiteful, or overbearing woman —sometimes used as a generalized term of abuse

3: something that is extremely difficult, objectionable, or unpleasant

Examples of BITCH

That word is a bitch to spell.
tiresome members of the tour group who had one bitch after another

Recently I have been called out twice for calling someone a bitch. 

Now I’ll adnit it.  I speak very plainly here and with passion which sometimes does include cursing.  I have called Men , Tony Perkins, Bryan Brown, and Joe Solmonee a BITCH.  I have called Maggie Gallager and Michelle Bac\hman a BITCH and I never heard a word.  But recently in a heated post I made about Rea Carey of the NGLTF and the total waste that she and her organization had been over the past two years wasting what little time that we had to make LGBT advances I called her a BITCH.  And viola!  Suddenly I am a MISOGYNIST asshole. 

Now I will freely admit I can be an asshole. But all of a sudden, because I called a lesbian a “bitch” I am a misogynist that hates all women?  That’s just a bit of a stretch don’t you think?  And a bit of a double standard.  How many women out there say “you bitch” to another woman?  Or if a woman says “I feel like such a bitch today, or if you called Joan Collins character on “Dynasty” a bitch does that make them misogynist?

 In some cases are wemaybe  getting too UBER PC? 

If a woman calls a man a “prick” or a “dick” or worse a “scumbag” does that mean she hates all men?  Should we as a male race be offended?  Is that woman  ‘misandrist’. Greek roots ‘mesein’ (“to hate”)/’misos’ (“hatred”) and ‘andr’ (“man”).

ANYONE who read that post could see clearly that I used the word bitch not as an attack on the entire female species.  Should I have not cursed?  YES. I probably should have found another word.  Not for the fact of misogyny but for better writing.  But  I was angry.  I AM ANGRY.  At what Rea Carey and the NGLTF and Joe Solmonese of of HRC  for not doing their job and wasting what little opportunity they had. while collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars and selling us up the river.

If I did offend, I mean TRULY offended people out there by calling Rea a BITCH and you REALLY TRULY BELIEVE  it was an attack on ALL women I am sorry.  It was not meant that way.  And I suggest that you go back and read the original post and you’ll see that.

In the end what can I say.  I’m just one angry HOMO.

Now I suppose I am anti-gay and a homophobic too.  *siiigh*

End Of Rant.
