Some things I wanted to share from the last four days

It ALWAYS starts out with the Trojan Horse of protecting the young children, before quickly expanding to including all teens/minors, and then the banishing of LGBTQ adults from sight…”for the sake of the children,” and not for the bigoted adults hiding behind them.

Question 1. Are you married?
Question 2. How do you explain that to an 18 year old without alluding to the fact that you’re a man and the person to which you are married is not?

Question 3. Why is that an exception to your rule?



Ban and pushcoming for your freedomshandmaiden of fascismwoke means

I’ve been dubious of the word “fascism” being thrown around. But it’s the right word. After reading How Fascism Works by Jason Stanley, I am convinced that DeSantis is in fact a fascist.


“What normalization does is transform the morally extraordinary into the ordinary. It makes us able to tolerate what was once intolerable by making it seem as if this is the way things have always been.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene Says Conservatives Need Their Own ‘Safe Space’

What is woke, and the woke ideology.   It is the new term for what the right use to call PC or politically correct.   What is that?  It is being nice, being tolerant of those that are different from them, being civil in discussions and in public.   One definition from is; 

 adjective :  having or marked by an active awareness of systemic injustices and prejudices, especially those involving the treatment of ethnic, racial, or sexual minorities.

What is wrong with that?   Being aware that there are people being treated unfairly.   Unless you are a racist bigot who wants to be rude, hurtful / harmful, and demeaning to others in public without suffering the consequences of those actions.  It is a small group of people demanding the country allow them to target people they hate and dislike.   They want the society of the 1950s where white people were the controlling authority in society always assumed to be in charge and above people of color.   They want a society that allowed men to demean and boss women around because men were unquestioningly in charge and women have no authority.  They want a time when there was little or no public recognition of any LGBTQ+ people and those in that community were openly targeted for harm / abuse.   That is what these maga want.  This is the goal of the anti-gay, anti-trans, and anti-social progress. 

I was once called a snowflake on Ark’s blog because I championed fixing social injustice.   I did not know what the term meant, and I said I was happy to be a snowflake as I thought it meant an individual.   Guess what I wear the title of social justice warrior proudly.    Helping those that are being unfairly attacked or targeted for abuse just for being a person of color or a member of the LGBTQ+ community is something to be proud of.     As I once mentioned safe spaces started in cities to let kids who were being abused at home or on their way to or from school by bullies / drug dealers / gang members know where they could go for help, where they could go to be safe.   I remember the advertisements on TV showing kids running from danger seeing the sign on fire stations or other businesses and dashing inside in relief.   I thought conservatives wanted to protect kids, but they mocked and derided safe spaces as a horrible thing.   Hugs

Marjorie Taylor Greene says Republicans deserve their own ‘safe space’ on Fox News.

Critics of “woke” policies are usually pretty skeptical about snowflakes calling for safe spaces—but Marjorie Taylor Greene is suddenly all for the idea. The Georgia lawmaker even went so far as to claim that MAGA Republicans “deserve” one of their own. “We’re fed up with Democrat policies, we’re fed up with the woke ideology being shoved down our throat, and we’re tired of our children being brainwashed into these same ideas,” Greene told Sean Hannity on Fox News on Tuesday. “We want our own safe space and we deserve it,” Greene added while discussing her recent advocacy for a “national divorce” between red and blue states. Commenting on Greene’s remarks, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) tweeted: “Republicans ridiculed ‘safe spaces’ and called people ‘snowflakes’, this coming from one of their leaders is literally hilarious.”


Hannity defends Marjorie Taylor Greene's "national divorce" proposal, saying it is merely "a plan to decentralize the federal government"

Seems to me that she and her cohorts invented the term “woke”, whatever that means — and now, she is yelling about it!!!

Sweet! The knuckle dragging badass admits she is a sham of a human being and needs to be isolated to preserve her own reality.

The woman who has openly committed adultery, switched religious lifestyle from mainstream Christianity to a fringe sect and tried to overthrow the government is complaining about another ideology being crammed down her throat. Irony RIP.

It’s never about the surface argument with conservatives. It’s always about them maintaining authority, all for fun, fame, and profit. It’s never really about anything else.


MTG is free to crawl back under the rock from which she slithered.

This is like when nazis are crying “You have to tolerate our intolerance, otherwise you’re a hypocrite!”

What MTG wants for her personal safe space– a large portion of the United States free of large women, small men, hijabs, lesbians, Blacks, drag queens, liberals, Mexicans, Jews, Catholics, and everybody who doesn’t think exactly like her.

With an implied “other” space for her to attack, of course.

“We’re fed up with Democratic policies that help average Americans, we’re fed up with enlightened ideology being shoved down our throat, and we’re tired of our children being educated”

You already have a “safe space”. Go to Truth Social, which is explicitly intended to be a space where MAGA bigots like you can hang out with like minded morons. That was built from the ground up to be your safe space.

Oh, I’m sorry. Is Truth Social a toxic shit-stain that nobody really wants to be on?

That sounds like a YOU problem.

They also pretty much have free rein over at Twitter now, too.

Obviously, that’s not good enough.

Because the bigots don’t really want “safe spaces”.

They want a captive audience.

They want everyone to just nod their heads and agree with their insane nutjobbery.

We’re tired of MAGA being shoved down our throats, tired of Republicans taking away our freedom to make choices about our bodies, freedom to express ourselves, to teach our children what we want to, tired of their racism and bigotry. It’s a two-way street, honey, get a grip.

A safe space for self-serving conservative lies?

Ms. Greene, may I introduce you to News Corp.? The universe of lies created by Rupert Murdoch sure seems to fit the bill, Marge. You have your own media empire that amplifies every treasonous brainfart you produce, bitch.

Come back tomorrow with more self-pitying bullshit. We’ll be waiting.

“We’re tired of our children being brainwashed into these same ideas”

Those would be her three adult children, all in their 20s, who might have opinions about her finalized divorce, the divorce she failed to carry through on a dozen years ago, and the tensions within her marriage that led to them.



Drag has been around in entertainment and society forever

It’s part of our American culture.
Why does he hate America so much?


I’m glad you posted those clips. Are evangelicals going to ban all cartoons from that era? How about all movies that have even one character in drag? How would that even work?

How do they define “adult cabaret?” And how is it different that regular cabaret? Also, I have yet to hear a convincing explanation of how a drag performance is inherently harmful to anyone.

Creeping ever closer to Gilead. Between this and the “don’t dare to bare” ladies shoulders thing in FL, it’s coming faster than we might think.

Margaret thatcher thought that by prohibiting teachers discussing homosexuality in schools would prevent kids turning out gay.
She was a fucking fool.
This new fascist trend in the US part of America is equally stupid.
Behind the anti-drag is homophobia, and behind that is evangelical bigotry.

What happened to free speech? Reading a story about a princess to children is punishable up to $20k and a prison sentence?

Only conservatives’ free speech rights count. Kind of like how only brown people can be terrorists.


I think we need to go back the Civil Rights tactics: “Fill the jails!” MASS drag shows, by thousands and thousands!

Was thinking the same thing. This being Oklahoma, however, they’d just view that as a lucky excuse to build more prisons (concentration camps).

I do fear for the safety of these people though. These lunatics have demonstrated that they are willing and able to harm and/or stir up mentally unstable followers of theirs to inflict harm (see that LibsOfTikTok hag). A drag queen friend of mine who has done drag queen story times recently told a group of our friends in a group chat that she gets several anonymous death threats per day via email or social media.

Never forget that evangelicals – who are directly responsible for this proposal – literally worship a genocidal deity. No wonder their entire lives are dedicated to violence and delusion.

I suppose some of these dorks actually think that preventing their kids from seeing drag will somehow prevent them from “becoming” gay, but I think the majority of them are just cruel miserable assholes who want to suck all the joy out of existence to punish all the people who never loved them. That and the grift of course.

Yup. I never saw a drag show as a kid, and I still like guys. But I felt very alone as a kid

True, that. But I also think that many of them are religionists who HATE anyone who doens’t conform to gender expectations. It’s one of the reasons they hate gay men, because they think we are acting like women, especially in the sex department.

So, Jack Lemon and Tony Curtis, Flip Wilson, Dustin Hoffman, and a large number of other male actors who have appeared in women’s clothing, will they be arrested if kids in Oklahoma watch their films?


A felony to perform drag !
What happened American freedom?
Has America gone back to the Elizabethan age where they shut down theatres when there was a performance that they didn’t like?

In the Elizabethan Age, all roles were played by men, women were not allowed on stage. Everything was a drag show, but then as RuPaul says, “We are born naked and everything else is drag.”

At the strip clubs





I don’t care if it rains or freezes as long as I have my plastic jesus….

You would think that god would know the difference, since he “created” them.

Every fundamentalist evangelical Christian knows that the bible written in parts roughly 2,500 years ago and often mistranslated is the height of scientific knowledge, social understanding, medical practice, and moral advancement.  They demand we live by ideas of people who thought that striped sticks seen while having sex determined the offspring and who had no idea of germs or the need to wash one’s hands.  Yes the peak of humanities growth those people were, and nothing learned since then should be followed.   According to them.     Hugs


Religion is proof that we still aren’t using our brains to their full potential.




Good grief.
