The Week Begins

Yesterday Special Counsel Robert Mueller revealed the first charges in the Russia probe, and a federal judge blocked Trump's ban on transgender people in the military.

If Mondays were always this good, I'd be a much nicer person.

Playboy is featuring its first ever transgender Playmate in its November issue. And if you think that’s not natural, neither are any of the other Playmates.

Wrap Your Mind Around This One

America has no shortage of conservative Christian pastors making nutty claims about LGBT people, but one fellow has skyrocketed to the top of the loopy list.

On his radio show "TruNews," Rick Wiles blamed the Las Vegas shooting on gay Nazis. Yes, you read that right.

According to PinkNews, Wiles said, "America has become a Nazi state. The deep state is a Nazi state."

He cited the appearance of Jesus Campos, the Mandalay Bay security guard who wounded the shooter, on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." Wiles explained, "That is why Campos appeared on a daytime talk show hosted by a fast-talking, dancing comedienne, and, let me add, a lesbian, because this Nazi regime is a gay/lesbian Nazi regime, just like Nazis in Hitler’s day."

Yup, you gotta watch out for those fast-talking, dancing comediennes in Hush Puppies.  The dancing is really an attempt to grab up Lebensraum.  To a beat.

Wiles added, "The Nazi takeover of Germany was a militant homosexual fascist takeover; that is what is taking place in America today."

Uh huh.  And Hitler was a Radical Faerie, Eva Braun was a drag queen and Joseph Goebbels was a stone butch named Frieda.

It's a Dirty Job, But . . .

Georgia state Rep. Betty Price suggested in a hearing this week that people with HIV could be quarantined.

Price is the wife of former Trump health secretary Tom Price.  I guess now that her husband has lost his job, SOMEONE in the family has to keep those queers in line.

Mr. Delusional

Today Donald Trump gave his administration a grade of 10 out of 10 for its handling of the devastation in Puerto Rico.

Nobody ask him to grade his administration's support of LGBT people over these first nine months.  He'll give it a 20 out of 10.

"Haul Ass, Mike!"


Watch as President Trump keeps Vice President Pence on a string, which stretches all the way from Pennsylvania to Indiana.

Give Me That Old-Time Dissonance

At the Values Voter Summit, the annual gathering of Christian conservatives at which President Trump spoke today, attendees received a swag bag that included a flier promoting a book called "Hazards of Homosexuality."

Among other things, the book claims homosexuality is a mental disorder.  It seems to me a mental disorder is when you succeed in convincing yourself that a man who's broken most of the Ten Commandments is suddenly an upstanding Christian leader.

Leader Theater

This morning I realized that I start every day hoping to hear that Donald Trump has resigned. I also realized that when that day comes, I'll have to write something like this:  The king is dead. But now we're stuck with Pope Pence.

Terrible News Friday, Regroup Saturday

From The Associated Press today:  "In a one-two punch elating religious conservatives, President Donald Trump’s administration is allowing more employers to opt out of no-cost birth control for workers and issuing sweeping religious-freedom directions that could override many anti-discrimination protections for LGBT people and others."

Well. My wife and I were already signed up to attend a fundraiser tomorrow evening for a women's rights organization here in Seattle. Legal Voice has a distinguished track record of fighting for reproductive and LGBT rights. After today's announcements out of the other Washington, I expect the speeches tomorrow to be impassioned, the crowd outraged and the booze barely adequate.

Wham

Today Attorney General Jeff Sessions' Justice Department asked a federal court to dismiss a legal challenge to President Trump's ban on transgender people serving in the military.  Also today, Sessions rolled back Justice Department policy that protected transgender workers from discrimination.

Sessions may look like Ernie the Keebler Elf, but today he turned into Punchy, spokes-batterer for Hawaiian Punch, as he laid out transgender folks with a joyful one-two punch.

Germany 23rd Country to Legalize Gay Marriage

On Sunday Karl Kreile and Bodo Mende became the first same-sex couple to marry in Germany.  Because I'm half German, I'd like to say to the Berlin couple, "Ich gratuliere!"  If you can't guess, that means, "I bet you're registered at Amazon."
