No shit. Facepalm beats Obvious?

I'm shocked. Well actually, not that shocked.
 
2022-12-09 3:50:24 AM  
That trans-activist blog is almost as reliable as the Club Q shooter's attorneys. Almost. Stay for the NYT is an anti-trans dishrag take.

I saw two beardy dudes making out at the bar last night. My first thought was: "they should grow their beards longer so they can braid them together".

/ if you wouldn't say anything about a man and a woman...why are you freaking out over 2 adults? It's not your business

At least it would be noteworthy if you saw a bearded woman making out at the bar.

Though it's not clear who you're imagining is freaked out about your CSB.

I'm assuming he figured he could just be a parody of a non-binary person all through the trial.  His lawyers went along with it at first because they took him at his word, except when they actually started asking him more about his experience as such it became painfully obvious (or he outright admitted) that it was a lie and they declined to keep up the charade because they knew that he would never be able to play the part convincingly and it would bite them in the ass partway through the trial.  More or less.

PDAs in places not specifically set up for PDAs are gross no matter who is involved.

And it got the talking points going in RWNJ media where he will need to build support to taint jury pools around Colorado.

I guarantee in a couple of years he will still be denied by conservatives who will say "he wasn't straight and what about HUNTER BIDENS LAPTOP"

More than trolling this moron probably imagined that being non-binary would protect him from hate crime charges.

I think that much was known when his asshole ex-porn star father piped up in an interview after the event to basically moan about how bad this all looked for him and how his son sucked.

So, is this just a case of an asshat thinking non-binary folks get special treatment and trying to use "the magic words" like some sov-cit yelling about enjoinder?
 
2022-12-09 7:59:37 AM  
Wait, I thought it didn't matter what someone identifiedas, but what they identify as.

It doesn't matter how someone presented yesterday, all that matters is how they choose to present and identify today.

I live in Kansas. There's people who freak the F out if you try to have a dance. Some people unconsciously quote the parents Footloose.

I didn't need a magic cat to tell me he was lying. It was blatantly obvious from the beginning. This was nothing more than a way to continue to hurt the LGBT community and deflect blame from right wing chuds.

Quite a few fark concerned regulars owe apologies for their insistence And weaponization of identity

There are still a couple very, very 'concerned' people who will tell us in every thread for the next ten years how we are 'anti-trans' for not welcoming him into the community with open arms.

THIS. The whole thing was part of the narrative that there is no such thing as right wing terror, it was all just the fault of those dangerous gays, the right are the real victims, and everyone should be afraid of the violent left.

Exactly. Even worse, now that his BS has gotten out, at least a few Chuds will be shouting "Fake news" as they believe the "(((media)))" is changing their narrative to "blame right wingers", feeding more into their paranoid stochastic terrorism.

The fact that this killer really tried to further brutalize the LGBTQ community by lying to the media makes me think he is not a lone nut, but a foot soldier directed by monied interests.

I regret nothing. I certainly wasn't "welcoming him into the community". I'm not even in the community. It won't stop me from erring on the side of caution in the future, sorry.

I was one of the people in the original thread who maintained that I would respect his stated identity and pronouns until given reason to do otherwise. This development, which surprises me not a whit and was never about to, is enough of an reason for me, and to state again, was completely expected. But I still stand by the decision I made them, and the reasons for it, so let flow the tide of told-ya-sos if you wish; they're noise in the breeze to me.

So when Ron walks in and says she's now Rhonda, you get to decide whether that's valid or not?

Who are we to question her lived experiences, or inner identity?
