#DropTheB

#DropTheB is a somewhat new hashtag which may or may not have originated from 4chan, an alleged right wing imageboard website.  Whether they did so or not is irrelevant and those arguing against the hashtag are no different from climate change skeptics and holocaust deniers.

Additionally, the thread which some on Twitter and elsewhere have cited as evidence it's a 4chan trick to create or provoke infighting, appears to have been deleted.

The hashtag alleges implores the gay, lesbian, and [gay/lesbian part of the] queer communites to reject bisexuality in the LGBT+ acronym as they are not genuine enough to be considered as a legitimate sexuality.

Or that they simply can't be trusted to stick around long enough whenever things get rough.

Are they correct?

Of course, it depends on whom one talks to.  Talk to a bisexual and they'll say bisexuality or bisexuals are not a joke or punchline.  They'll say or have said something along the lines of "bisexuals is a sexual orientation, an attraction to two genders, male and female; Three, if one wants to include transgenders.

Update: Four, or more, if one wants to include the 71 other gender identities.

But if one were to ask a gay/lesbian or straight person, they'll say, bisexuals are people who can't ever make up their mind and are a few screws loose of becoming either transgender or ex-gay.

When they'll figure out what they want to be, then we'll know.

Me, what I do I believe?  At present, I'm neither here nor there. Of late, the majority of the bisexual activist community appears to be siding with transgender community against gays and lesbians, and even going so far as to support their racist, homophobic and misogynist policies instead of gay and lesbian social issues.  

I don't know about anyone else, but that's a problem.  The gay and lesbian social movement is at an important crossroads and needs to do some soul searching or else. 

And time is running short. 

In 2017, Philadelphia adopted a revised version of the flag with black and brown stripes, "to highlight black and brown LGBTQIA members within the city's community". 

On February 12, 2018, during the street carnival of São Paulo, someone named Estêvão Romane unveiled an eight stripe LGBT flag with a white stripe in the middle as the 9th stripe, "representing all colors (human diversity in terms of religion, gender, sex preferences, ethinicities), and peace and union among all."

On June 4, 2018, The Supreme Court recently decided making a cake counts as constitutionally protected speech.

Meanwhile, where do bisexuals stand on all this?  At last check, they were still having trouble deciding.  

While they decide, here's one hashtag that cannot be denied no matter how hard they try: #DropTheT.

chick fil a redux

Business Insider:
Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey ignited a backlash online after revealing that he ate at Chick-fil-A this month. 
On Saturday, Dorsey posted a photo on Twitter with the caption "Boost @ChickfilA," showing he had saved 10% on a $31.58 order at the fast-food chain. A "boost" is a cashback reward Square users can earn when using a Cash Card, which is a debit card from the payment platform. 
Critics immediately seized on Dorsey's support of Chick-fil-A — whose CEO has come under fire for his views on same-sex marriage in the past — during Pride Month.

His response?

Dorsey responded: "You're right. Completely forgot about their background."

To the surprise of no one, there are many on social media supported Dorsey's decision to eat at Chick-fil-a; and leading the way are several gay conservatives, among them, Chad Felix Greene, Chadwick Moore, Rob Smith, and Dave Rubin, who apparently took time out of his tour debate with Jordan Peterson and staged a photo op in a piss puddled alley:


So edgy and cool that Dave guy. And very disgusting.

To be fair, Rubin was reacting to HuffPost editor Noah Michelson - himself a few screws short of a workbench - who wrote a scathing commentary headlined “If You Really Love LGBTQ People, You Just Can’t Keep Eating Chick-fil-A.” It was his story that set everyone off.

It was reportedly Michelson who changed the name of Huffpost Gay Voices to "Queer Voices," a move that angered many in the gay community who say "queer" has been co-opted by the trans, poly, and kink communities and have transformed the word or term into a travesty. Despite complaints, he delegitimized concerns from readers who now find the term "queer" to be offensive, and has reportedly said, polyamorous , genderfluid pansexuals need a stronger voice because they've been "marginalized".

The idea or notion he suddenly cares is an idea or notion meant to undermine his readers.

It's also Pride month.

Michelson is probably, more likely, in search of a free lunch.

Either way, you'll never see me at a Chick-fil-A.  Something incredible would have to occur in order to have me take a rat and vermin filled subway train for ninety minutes into Manhattan and buy their diarrhea inducing food.

Meanwhile, what of Jeremy Hooper of GoodAsYou.org fame?  It was Hooper, after all, who caused this mess. He's the reason why there was a domestic terrorist attack at the Washington, DC offices of the Family Research Council, and he's the reason why we now have four Chick-fil-A locations in New York City, and their ads appearing on our TV screen without warning or notice.

His response?

the creation and subsequent bastardization of a movement is in full swing

And here it is.





To be clear, the black and brown colors were added in 2017. Philadelphia added the black and brown stripes during a Pride Event outside City Hall, and only a handful of gay activists found the decision to do an insult and disgrace to the legacy of Gilbert Baker who died on March 31, 2017.

This new design, with white, light pink, and light blue shaped in a arrow, is the work of someone named Daniel Quasar, who identifies as a “queer non-binary demi guy” and goes by pronouns he/him and xe/xem; but of course.

Because what better way to show pride than by constructing narrow minded identifies and making up ridiculous pronouns for themselves?

Unfortunately, it would seem there's not much those of us opposed to the bastardization of the pride flag can do. Aside from a few semi anonymous people on Twitter and Facebook opposed to transgenderism, allegedly, the LGB/T establishment is supportive of the "flag reboot" and thru them, Quasar has received enough money to begin manufacturing flag and stickers with his new design.

Update: On June 8, The Human Rights Campaign published a full page ad on USA Today featuring a pride flag with black and brown stripes.  They're encouraging businesses across the country to download the sign and display it in their windows "to show they are #OpenToAll."

Will they? Have they?

remembering pulse, the right way.

On June 12, 2016, a man with an automatic assault rifle killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a terrorist attack inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. At the time, the attack was the biggest mass shooting by a single shooter in modern history of the United States to date, as well as the biggest attack on the LGBTQ+ community in history.

Fast forward to 2018, alot has happened in the aftermath of the terrorist attack. It started, unfortunately, when several alleged victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting made claims the shooter was gay. But they never proved or backed up their claims, so the oligarchs of the LGB/T establishment took over and made Pulse into attack against the NRA.

Then there were the stories about the shooter not knowing that Pulse was a gay nightclub and that he was simply looking for a venue to shoot up.

And lest I forget, the repeated attempts by some to trans the dead, by referring to the victims as "latinx," a deceptive buzzword created to make proud gay and straight latinos and latinas ashamed of their heritage.

It's a hell of way to pay tribute to them.

To be clear, I'm the first, last, or only person to object to "latinx."  But at present, I seem to be the most vocal.  Most, if not all who opposed the term have since given up the fight, and that's mostly on account of the word being used mostly here in the US mainland, and the tyranny of the minority, millenials who are being given way too much credit and aging socialists who can't stop imposing their social norms on others.

And although it's been a very long time since I've visited, talked to,  or stayed in Puerto Rico for an extended period, I am pretty goddamn sure that if I were to ask a Puerto Rican how they feel about some someone or some group trying to X or degender them, they're not going to take kindly to it.

No, not at all.

I must also add, I don't know anyone who died or were wounded.    To be clear, I've friends or family who say they know a friend or relative who lost someone at Pulse; but to suggest or imply otherwise is wrong.

Still though, what better way for me to lose the debate on than by having someone prove definately one of the victims identified as "latinx?"

Any takers?

I'll wait; In the meantime, and because it's creepy to mourn for strangers, I'll simply observe in my own way: the right way.

This blog will honor them by not transing or X'ing the victims. Nor will I take away or erase their heritage for the sake of a few snowflakes on social media.

And I won't be posting their names and photos to avoid using them for some social or political purpose.

masterpiece disaster

Masterpiece Cakeshop is a bakery in Denver, Colorado, which refused to provide a wedding cake to a gay couple based on the owner's religious beliefs.

The gay couple filed a complaint with The Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

The Colorado Civil Rights Commission, evaluating the case under its anti-discrimination law, found the bakery discriminated against the couple.

The bakery took the case to the Supreme Court..

The Court heard oral arguments in December, 2017.

Today, June 4, The Supreme Court ruled 7-2 -and in favor of the bakery - that state anti-discrimination laws must evaluate cases with religious neutrality and respect the individuals' rights to free exercise, and that the Commission showed hostility towards the bakery owner's religious beliefs.

In other words, The Colorado Civil Rights Commission was being mean and violated the rights of the baker under the free exercise clause.

Well then, this being a personal blog and this blogger not being necessarily representative of a group, class, or type, I'll say that the Court appears to have left open the possibility of a future argument.  It did not rule on whether baking a cake for a same sex couple violated his right to freedom of speech.

To sum up, today The Religious Right won the cake battle but lost the war on the right to discriminate, maybe.  Those of us with little or no access to legal protections may now be in greater risk of discrimination on account of today's ruling, and all on account of two gay men who couldn't take no for answer.

Thanks to two gay people, food got one step closer to having a greater protected status over marriage equality.

fake lesbians and raging homophobes

Now that I'm having to reflect once again on my rights and wrongs, it's surreal having certain things suddenly stare in you (or one) in the face.

One is lesbians having a propensity for hate crime hoaxes, including the one about transgenders being a threat to them, something which is true for the most part except that the ones claiming to be at the vanguard of transgender oppression are the greatest liars of all.

Indeed, of all the groups in the LGBTx spectrum, the one group that seems to have a propensity for imagination and commiting crimes against themselves are lesbians.

Forget trans; Here's a quick list of hate crimes faked by lesbians:
  • Carol Ann and Laura Stutte - they're a lesbian couple from Tennessee who burned down thome and then tried to cover it up as a hate crime in an effort to collect a $276,000 insurance pay out.
  • Marie Poindexter - is a Central Michigan university professor who cold cocked her own face and blamed it on some random guy at a Toby Keith concert who called her a "cross dressing fag."
  • Charlie Rogers - former basketball player for the University of Nebraska who identifies herself as lesbian who in 2012, told police that three masked men entered her home on July 22, stripped her, tied her down, and carved homophobic slurs into her body before attempting to set her and her home on fire.
  • Dayna Morales - is a former waitress who accused a couple leaving her homophobic note instead of a tip. She raked in thousands of dollars in donations after a social advocacy group, Have A Gay Day, created a media firestorm on her behalf.
  • Kerri Dunn - a lesbian professor at Clarmont University who said her car had been vandalized and scrawled with hate slogans.
  • Azalea Cooley - In May, 1992 Cooley claimed vandals had spray painted a swastika and "Burn, Nigger, Burn" on her house and failed to account for the CCTV footage that showed her wheeling herself out of her home stick a wooden cross in a flower pot on her back porch, and set it alight.
  • Sarah Kaspereit - a lesbian from Ada California; in 2007, she said two men held her down in her driveway, carved the word “lesbian” into her arm and called her a faggot.  After a three month investigation, she eventually revealed she fabricated the entire story.
There were dozens more examples shared with me or that I've since "discovered," just from having butch dyke lesbians screaming homophobic slurs at me for saying several lesbians need to own up for Roseanne and her Ambien fueled adventures.

That be said, there really is a problem with homophobia; but as noted by a gay conservative it's not conservative america who are endangering the lives of gays.  On June 12, 2016,  a twenty nine year old ISIS supporter, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a terrorist attack inside Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and was shot and killed after a three hour standoff.

At the time, it was the deadliest mass shooting by a single shooter in the US. It was since surpassed by the Las Vegas shooting and later written off as a crime of opportunity.

To be clear, lesbians aren't the ones who said or declared the Pulse nightclub shooting wasn't based on homophobia; It's the G of the LGBT activist and media establishment who did.

Still though, it does beg to question why some parts of the lesbian community would want to claim the mantle of victimhood, create a fake panic atmosphere around transgenders, only for them to become the problem, not the solution.

Despite the actions of the Aryan sisterhood of lesbianism, compulosry transgenderism does remain a problem, and as long as some keep on pretending transgenders are some oppressed and misunderstood minority in need of love, acceptance, the ACLU and government, don't expect a turnaround anytime soon.

Lesbians had their chance at being heroes and they blew it with their man-hating homophobic paranoia.

it can be scary to find out you've been wrong about

"It can be scary to find out you've been wrong about something. But we can't be afraid to change our minds, to accept that things are different, that they'll never be the same, for better or for worse. We have to be willing to give up what we used to believe. The more we're willing to accept what is and is not what we thought, we'll find ourselves exactly where we belong."

— Meredith Grey, Greys Anatomy, season 9, episode 6

Obviously, the above quote comes from a place of fiction, but here at ngblog, very often, truth often ends up being stranger than fiction. In fact, I can say unequivocally, this blog started from a wrong and I've been trying for years to make it right again.

In my quest to make it right, I've had to depend on people who are or were in a better position that I to make it make it right again.

And unfortunately, and far too often, these people end up becoming a far greater problem than heretofore.

On that note, let me theorize on the possibility I could have been wrong about transgenders, and the real problem all along has been paranoid/delusional man hating butch dyke lesbians with Hitler youth Aryan haircuts who spend their online day and perhaps night demarcating "anti-transgender" dialogue?

Oh, who am I kidding; any group that seeks to enforce worship practices and mandating sex and or religion are a threat to society, no matter who they be.

But today, I'm cutting them a break because they seem to be having quite a few problems they need to reconcile within themselves, from transgender infighting to figuring out their vocabulary and what it is they want exactly without making it look like they're advocating for compulsory transgenderism.

No, yes, we need to have a serious talk about lesbians and how they don't care about their own future. To that end, is there such a thing as lesbians? Back in 2016, when Milo Yiannopolous was touring across the country and allowed to speak at college campuses without retribution,  there was a woman who was trying very hard to be condescending toward Mr. Yiannoplous and he, in turn, saw right thru her.

Upon asking her question which wasn't a question but more a beg, Milo said:
“There aren’t really any lesbians … this is something that people don’t really understand about sexuality. You know men have been exclusively sleeping with men for the majority of their lives, since 2000 BC – Juvenal and Tacitus are very clear on this. Female sexuality as we know from all studies that have ever been conducted on this subject is much more malleable, its much more flexible. Women who sleep with women tend to have had relationships with men as well. So the old jokes about just needing a good dicking or she’s just come out of bad relationship do tend to be broadly accurate.”
He then follows up by saying:
"I don't entirely believe in lesbians... There are, of course, a small, a tiny proportion, of, you know, the dungaree-wearing types, you know, with the short haircuts, your gender studies professors, who probably will never see a penis - more out of lack of options than preference." 

Have we been mislead about lesbians?  Given what happened recently, it seems to me lesbians are nothing more than a reaction or response to deep seeded hatred towards men.

Add to it, the following factoid:  When several gay and bisexual men (allegedly) launched a petition and campaign demanding the LGBT establishment to stop lumping transgenders with gays, lesbians, and bisexuals because their goals are hostile and regressive toward gays and women, butch dyke lesbians, including the three or so members of the  Aryan sisterhood of lesbianism who are currently pedophiling me on Twitter, opposed the petition.

Granted,the #DropTheT petition and campaign crashed and burned in a swamp of hypocrisy and cowardice - and it's not their fault - but what to say about a community of people who troll social media, attacking gay men and other women who don't identify the way they do?

Lesbians as with gays, are by no means, sancrosanct. They make mistakes as we here in the gay community do often.; and as I do, alot.  

I've been wrong lots of times.  For example, years ago, when I was still trying to figure out what to do with this blog, an incident came along involving a gay activist named Joe Brummer who was being vilified by several activists and bloggers from the far right conservative establishment, among them, a really disturbed individual who claimed Google was allowing pedophile blogs, and another guy who said gays were having sex with infants as part of some new trend in Chicago.

To be clear, these two people, and there were others equally disturbed and deeply unhinged as they, were awful, and this blogger did the right thing by defending Brummer and making sure he wasn't alone in his efforts to disprove their wild and unsubstantied claims.

Unfortunately Joe Brummer ended up being a crazy gay man with his own dangerous agenda and I had to, for better or worse, withdraw.  When anyone's idea of equality involves forcing gay people into a compulsory contract with them, and that someone is picking and choosing only people who represent his narrow minded views or lifestyle, it's no longer an advocacy toward homophobia, but an advocacy towards totalitarianism;

One fringe group doing battle with another fringe group, both sides taking hostages, and both sides only caring about winning.

There are other incidents i can speak of as well, where something happened or occured where it become necessary to advocate on behalf of someone or some group, and advocating their cause ends up biting me in the ass, but I'll save it for another day.

There's a straightbian who defends transgenders screaming about non binary queers beating up a lesbian and I need to go find if they're worth taking a bullet for.
