Loreta Lynch just spoke and basically put a stiletto heel in Gov. McCrory’s ass, telling them where to stick his lawsuit:
The U.S. government filed a lawsuit Monday against North Carolina saying that state entities were in violation of provisions in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Title IX the Education Acts Amendment of 1972 and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act that outlaw discrimination on the basis of sex. The lawsuit comes hours after Gov. Pat McCrory sued the Justice Department, asking a federal court to rule whether the state’s so-called bathroom bill violated U.S. law.
She was openly contemptuous of these knuckle draggers, and offered a full throated defense of transgendered persons. Good. As I noted elsehwere, I simply do not understand these bigoted culture warriors, because I just don’t have the energy to be such a busybody to tell everyone how to live their life. I don’t understand why who pisses where is such a big deal, and it isn’t because of men perving on little girls in bathrooms. There are already laws against that.
I’m also sick of the argument that liberals are trying to “normalize” X, where X is whatever the reich wing jeebus freaks have decided is the target du jour, whether it be homosexuality, transgenders, etc. Homosexuality and transgender individuals are normal. It happens naturally. It’s not something that happens as commonly as heterosexuality, but it is quite normal.
When these jackasses say they don’t want something like homosexuality normalized, what they mean is that they don’t want to have to stop brutalizing homosexuals and transgenders both physically and emotionally and socially. They want them back in the closet, so they don’t have to confuse their pretty little heads with something that scares them or that they don’t understand. What they really mean is not that they don’t want homosexuality “normalized,” what they mean is that they want to continue to treat normal people like shit for no reason or because Jeebus told them to. Or because it makes them feel superior or because they see political gain. Or because they are sociopaths. Or because they themselves are having feelings for the same sex or are confused about their gender identity and it scares the living shit out of them because they are surrounded by people like them who have spent their entire lives telling that that is wrong. Or some combination of all of the above.
So fuck them. You know what I would like normalized? People minding their own fucking business, and not worrying about who is fucking who or which disgusting fucking rest stop bathroom someone decides to take a shit in. If it’s not happening in your bedroom, shut the fuck up. It ain’t your business. If Laverne Cox demands to take a shit in your home’s bathroom, you have a say. Until then, shut the fuck up. That’s what I would like normalized.
