It'll work on the cons that have gotten soft on gays.  I'm guessing.
 
2013-10-08 05:29:29 PM
Well if they don't stand up for the rights of abusers of children, who will?
 
2013-10-08 05:29:39 PM
you guys should focus on jobs & the economy.
 
2013-10-08 05:30:25 PM
They should hold them down and cut their hair.

Well, they are going after an issue that would have affected me. I begged my counselors for special permission to get into the boys' PE classes, and had it not been the mid-90s, I probably would have been ID'd as transgendered way before 30 and way before a shiat-ton of problems that are going to make it next to impossible for me to succeed or be independent on my own.

I've had boy feelings since I was 5. I'm 30. Can we please stop trying to argue it's a fad I'll get over?

/almost lost a friend who started spouting the "it's just an excuse for teenagers to have sex"
//never ever crossed my mind to get on the guys' teams for sex. Was about not wanting to listen to the girls complain about broken nails, messed up make up, and cheating boyfriends. I just wanted to play basketball, gorramit.

California Republicans hold no statewide offices and the Democrats have a supermajority in the legislature.

Dig UP, stupids.

they're just comically evil at this point.

Republicans are bigoted against non-whites, non-christians, gays, immigrants and women.

We'll have the full story at 11:00 after weather and sports.

Their ideas are terrible on that too.

They should all move to a place that wants them. I hear the melting ice of the North Pole is nice this year.

If you like to persecute people who are not like you (or not like your public image, anyway), the GOP has a place for you!

Helluva thing to focus on shiatheads. No segregated athletic competitions though?That's stupid
 
2013-10-08 05:40:56 PM
so their party platform nowadays is to repeal progress across the board...
no new ideas, just destroying things that democrats have done regardless of whether they are right or wrong.
wtf.

They are dragging us all off the cliff on Mt. Derp.  As a long time politics follower, what is going on right now is historically stupid.  Monumentally idiotic.  Its 'dick in the toaster' insane.

Yeah, but that's a battle they can't possibly win. This is a battle they CAN win, at least in their constituency!

I think many of these Republicans would like to harass these transgendered teens with their penises. Just a guess.
 
2013-10-08 06:19:04 PM
far-right conservatives and tea party operatives have made overturning the recent protections enacted for transgender teens in public schools the center of the party platform.

But we're really all just mad about fiscal policy and definitely aren't bigots, nosiree!

The California Republican Party is throwing the full weight of its political muscle behind an effort to repeal the state's ban on discrimination against transgender kids

Please be satire please be satire please be satire GOD DAMMIT SO MUCH

I think it shouldn't be up to the student if they have a gender ID issue I think they should get a note from like a psychologist or counselor or something. This seems a little too easy for some student to abuse.

/I looked up the text off the law and it looked like to me there is like no restriction on the child to decide.

Corvus: I think it shouldn't be up to the student if they have a gender ID issue I think they should get a note from like a psychologist or counselor or something. This seems a little too easy for some student to abuse.


How, exactly, do you envision it being abused? Do you imagine kids will be lining up to fraudulently take advantage of all the neat benefits bestowed upon transgender kids? Personally, I would think there are easier ways to get teased and beaten up, but maybe not.

You know what? I was going to make a Justin Bieber joke, but that would have been really offensive to the trans community, so nevermind.

I think we all know that the most dedicated cons get quite hard on gays... why, those dirty bastids almost made their darn penile prosthetics pop out!

That's gotta be worth a'bannin', right? Right? "Vote for me"? Right??

Nah.  Most closeted homosexuals are attracted to members of their own sex, not someone who looks and acts like the opposite sex.

There's a slight amount of Jerry Brown dislike in that comment. Hey, Jerry Brown gets shiat done. It's not like he's some boutique candidate who's just a pretty face.

I've had someone make that argument concerning gays.  I asked why they would want THAT sort of attention but they couldn't answer that.
