I’ll never get “Conservative queers”. Is it some sort of Stockholm syndrome?

“Yeah, I know they want to crush, eradicate, and ban everything about me, including sometimes my actual life. But…I dunno. Just look at them! They’re so powerful. Totally dominant. How can you resist that? It just makes sense when they say it.” 🙄

nina tryggvason 

they think they are heterosexual enough for being ethnic bigots, the same why ethnicities who hate queers are white enough in the republican big tent.

Quirk Sugarplum

Adding to the above, I know that’s a silly oversimplification. It’s a complex thing with many shades of gray. But still.

feel good bigotry, pick on them, not me. more minion than bystander


also in this era, that is a white man in a tshirt for trump. he could be paid to be wearing that shirt and not LGBTQ2 at all.

It’s like paraphrasing Animal House.

All lives matter. But some lives matter more than others.

And the ones who’s lives matter more just happen to be the ones in a position to decide others’ lives matter less.

could have not dykesplained it any better. this i am gonna blog. Heterosexual men have to stop defining, insulting, assaulting, raping and murdering women who say no, men who ask for a yes and anyone who they think tricked them. given how they treat other heterosexual men, I am appalled that modern era feminism is about as behaving as badly as and as if, equality has been achieved. eh.

from another post, for the blog

Time for the professional medical profession to take the lead and not have non-expert celebrities from entertainment or sports

and especially not religion

speak to gender and sexuality and inform government policy

Writing on Twitter, Rowling said: “Since speaking up about gender identity theory, I’ve received thousands of emails – more than I’ve ever had on a single subject.

“Many have come from professionals working in medicine, education and social work. All are concerned about the effects on vulnerable young people.”

Referring to a post from the Transgender Trend website, she added: “The writers of this letter are just two of a growing number of whistleblowers.

Doctor and social media personality Eugene Gu said: “Treating transgender kids as if their gender identity is a mental illness causes them unimaginable psychological harm. Let people choose their own identities.”

Many stars of the Harry Potter movie franchise, including Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, have condemned Rowling’s views.

Have you ever met any humans? They don’t usually pay attention to actual professionals, medical or otherwise.

If only we could cross-pollinate celebrities and professionals. sigh.  But even then about half the time we get the worst traits combined and end up with a defect like Dr. Oz or Deepak Chopra.

i try to avoid them, I don’ anthropomorphize that species

i have a intergenerational and intersectional LGBTQ2 blog and i wonder if you are okay with my posting the exchanges we have. I think others would benefit from reading.

I can only guess you mean to use me as an example of poor thinking and bad expression. 😄

Equality and The Canada Charter

what if the mid 1980s Charter of Rights had included marriage equality, as the initial version of it had. Not to mention the Charter Challenge Program instead of only the Notwithstanding Claus. 

Rights are for humans, Lest We Forget

For one year in Canada LGBTQ2 could marry, but not divorce. It took another court case for that legislation to have inclusive language

15 years later, reflecting on the fight to say ‘I do’W hen Canada’s Civil Marriage Act (Bill C-38) came into effect on July 20, 2005, making same-sex marriage legal from coast to coast to coast, the country became the fourth in the world to legally treat homosexual couples the same as heterosexual ones.

G-G-Generations of Queers

Gen X reflections of Boomers in the era of Millenials adulting

'To be a queer millenial is in some ways a different experience,' says Meghan McCarron

‘To be a queer millenial is in some ways a different experience,’ says Meghan McCarron. The idea of queer-centered spaces in the food and beverage world is not a new phenomenon. As special correspondent for Eater, Meghan McCarron wrote in last year that “the queer food world is coming out.” McCarron has been documenting queer food culture and reporting on the history and future of queer food spaces.

Black Lives Matter March on Vancouver Pride 2019

yes, the younger than my generation of queers was supposed to have rights and live their lives instead, they are fighting to keep rights won by my generation and the ones before mine – decades before they were born

those of us who had no rights, won them are having to fight all over again

equal treatment under the law and access to the public square and health care and careers as well as housing and marriages.

We can’t talk about LGBT health without remembering Virginia BrooksUrgent issues face queer and trans people everywhere, including LGBT suicide, the continued practice of conversion therapy, HIV burden, an epidemic of violence against trans women of colour and poor mental and physical health compared to straight and cis people. In 1981, a former social worker named Virginia Brooks coined the sexual minority stress theory.

“In 1981, a former social worker named Virginia Brooks coined the sexual minority stress theory. Brooks’ work explained why such health disparities exist. In the process, Brooks revolutionized the way we think about queer and trans people, rejecting cultural notions that being queer or trans is pathological, the result of a traumatic past or something negative in people’s lives.

Published in 1981, Brooks’ Minority Stress and Lesbian Women showed how exposure to cultural, social and economic stressors translates into psychological and biophysical stress for LGBT people. Going through experiences like homophobia, employment discrimination and lack of civil rights, to name a few, cumulatively over time translates into poor health.  “

I recommend an interesting article, the jobs that we did when we were marginalized, vs the professions we had access to after rights were gained

Making friendsThere may be some truth to the ‘gay jobs’ stereotypeThere is an unusually high concentration of gay or lesbian workers in certain occupations. For example, both gay men and lesbians and are overrepresented in psychology, law, social work, and university teaching. And there are real occupational patterns behind some popular stereotypes, from the gay flight attendant to the lesbian truck driver.

Representation of LGBTQ2

for too long, since the start of movies and tv, where LGBTQ2 characters either suicides, murder victims or murders and for lesbians, also vampires.

he is a fictional character and a cannibal.

so no thanks, that is not the represention that LGBTQ2 is going for.

And yet somehow the UPS driver still always delivers my packages to my neighbors’ houses. 🙄

yeah and at the point people have rolling ovens delivering pizza, maybe they should just have gotten one at the store and cooked it at home.

we have this and yet most people on the planet are sure their invisible friend or friends lets them control other people’s rights and genitals. religion is mental illness, devoid of evidence and facts, and is not even internally consistent. i think of the “bible” a collection of dead sea scrolls as the early internet – poetry, propaganda and porn.

it never made sense to me that a being capable of creating the universe, would fixate on one planet, on one species and about gentialia.

the bronze age scrolls had a very limited understanding of the universe and why the deities were invented, placeholders. put aside in the dustbin of history, owing to religious conflict often ending one or both sides. If not other disaster – disease, drought or geological or climate event.

https://www.thestar.com/opinion/letters_to_the_editors/2020/07/16/jk-rowlings-transgender-comments-are-misunderstood-and-misconstrued.htmlJ.K. Rowling’s transgender comments are misunderstood and misconstrued | The Starwww.thestar.com

from the article:

“she is raising an alarm about the increasingly common trend to use a gender-neutral term, like “people,” to group together the LGBTQ community with biologically born women, (who identify as women), to the point where it is becoming unacceptable to use the word “woman.”

Nina Notes the word “heterosexual” is missing from the above paragraph.

and it is a problem for White Heterosexual Women to be included on par with LGBTQ2, some of whom are white, the most visible and represented portion of the qmunity.

White Heterosexual Women are the group most likely to be allied with part of PFLAG – Parents and friends of. leveraging their lesser than heterosexual male privileged, on behalf, so as each group steps up, the idea is turn around and help the next group to access rights and dignity of person.

There is no question that equitable linguistic representation demonstrates respect and tolerance for more complex gender/sexual identities. But, scrubbing language of essential gender-specific words, which work eminently well for society at large, and arguably for most women, can hardly be called tolerant or respectful.”

Nina notes: including self definition as well as determination, each to our own identifiers and labels and not sticking them on others, each to our own.

so – who is what, and who has what rights. in 2020. this is why heterosexuals are not in the qmunity of LGBTQ2, not because they are oppressed and murdered less, they are not, they are often married off to their rapists, after all, white heterosexual women were the chattle of the heterosexual men, property under the law, not named in the law as having rights; while there were laws against sexuality and passing for a gender in the terms of that centuries ago era;

with ethnicity of any person often reduced to being property rather than persons, with or without full legal rights of financial and body sovereignty.

“Normality as it was before will not come back full-on until we get a vaccine for this… That will be a very long way off,” the prime minister said during his daily news conference on Canada’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

“We will have to remain vigilant for at least a year,” he added in French.
