LGBT March On Washington – June 11, 2017

Recommended Posts

For those of you who might not know, there will be an LGBT march on Washington Sunday June 11, 2017 (The National Pride March) – the day after the DC gay pride parade. For those of you who are coming in from out-of-town, maybe we can stay in the same hotel (and if the chemistry is right, do a little fucking). I've made reservations at the Marriott Courtyard near Union Station. It's on the Red Line, so easy to get to places like Dupont Circle, and isn't too far from the (sleazy) Glorious Health bathhouse. 

Let me know if you guys are going and wanna meet up.

Do you think that there will be much breeding there at night in baths and hotel/bars?

Protesting Trump's decision to keep the Obama administration protections extended to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workers?

OR

Protesting the fact that after Mike Pence signed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and it was realized that it potentially allowed for discrimination against LGBT individuals, it was Gov. Mike Pence who called on lawmakers to pass legislation clarifying that it does not allow business owners to discriminate against LGBT individuals in providing services . After demanding that the Indiana legislature change the law and they complied with his demands, it was Mike Pence who signed the revised legislation which prohibited LGBT discrimination into law.???

 

I'm NOT a Trump supporter but anyone who looks at Hillary Clinton's track record will see a woman who when she held power did NOTHING to advance or protect LGBT equality -- she was a big supporter of Don't Ask, Don't Tell; a fierce advocate for the Defense of Marriage Act; staunchly against same-sex marriage; and NEVER sponsored a single piece of legislation that moved the needle towards equality. When she was IN POWER she did NOTHING, only when she held NO POWER did her EMPTY WORDS suggest that she was a champion of LGBT equality. Actions speak far louder than empty words on the campaign trail.

Additionally, in the 1990's she called African American youths "super predators" who the government needed to bring to heel.

While Trump's words may be murky about LGBT rights, the man hosted Elton John's wedding long before it same-sex marriage was cool and he rolled out the red carpet at Trump Tower for Caitlyn Jenner to use the women's bathroom. With those two actions, President Trump has done far more for LGBT people than Hillary Clinton has ever done.

Again, I'm NOT a fan of Trump.

While I agree that Hillary Clinton was not a leader when it came to LGBT rights, aside from matters of marriage, she did vote for them consistently as a Senator. The examples you provided for Pence and Trump are not even positive actions, simply refusing to revoke existing protections. They haven't actually shown any leadership or put forward any positive efforts to improve the lives of LGBT people.

But, more importantly, Hillary Clinton is not the President. She's not relevant to this discussion, why the hell did you bring her up? All you've demonstrated is that Trump and Pence are not the worst case scenario for LGBT people, not that they are actually good for us. Also, Trump and Pence are not the only people with power in Washington. Congress has still yet to pass a federal anti-discrimination law, which Pence and many in the administration do not support, for example.

      Is it really that contradicting to be gay/bi and be a conservative or right/far right? I've had arguments/debates with people for hours and when I said I'm bi they simply couldn't believe or couldn't understand how it is possible.
      It would be interesting to see how others here view this topic, seeing how I've met others who are like me on the matter.

      i decided to accept my buddy Bob's invitation and go over to his place and watch the Republican debate with a bunch of his friends.  We are all not so much true blue Democrats or liberals or progressives as much as we are anti-Republican.  i had no great expectation that the debate would be enlightening, but figured there would be a few good laughs, and a night with some nice guys, having a couple of beers and maybe smoking some weed seemed like a good idea.  Bob introduced me to his friends and noted that iw as one of the best fuck he had ever had.
       
      Well, it was apparent from the start that the "debate" would not be enlightening, but what was startling was how frequently all of these Republican assholes were misciting facts or misrepresenting the truth and no one was calling them on it.  Like the moment when Jeb Bush said that his brother, George W. "kept us safe," and no one even mentioned that 9/11 happened on his brother's watch.   
       
      Well, the guys were getting pretty worked up about this, until someone suggested that whenever one of these lies was uttered and went unchallenged, instead of screaming at the TV, the dude who spotted the misrepresentation got to fuck my ass. 
       
      Well, all i have to say is "thank you" Republican assholes, and "thank you" CNN for extending the debate to three whole hours.  And there certainly were enough misrepresentations of the fact to keep me and a whole bunch of fags busy (although I am certainly glad that i was the only one).  The guys were lined up all night long and the fucking continued until well after the debate was over.
       
      And thank you Donald Trump for the incredible number of lies and misrepresented facts that emerged from your addled brain.

      If I were to run for President and won here is what I would do:
       
      1. 2000% tax on all condoms
       
      2. Eliminate any tax benefits of condom manufactures of donating condoms to the public, non-profit, etc.
       
      3. With the revenue earned from condom tax revenue I would fund the "Holy Gloryhole" program.
       
      4. The "Holy Gloryhole" program would renovate old and abandoned churches and turn them into "Men's sexual re-education facilities." Among these, Gloryholes would be constructed inside said premises. Also, to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure  I would make it mandatory that all contracts for restroom construction would include "ventilation orifices" built into all public restroom partition walls. So-in short, fuck the freeways, we need great state-of-the art rest stop facilities.
       
      5. Safe sex education would be eliminated from all public schools.
       
      6. Bathhouses, gay bars, and the like would receive 501 3 c status (non-profit). Consider this as part (but not all) reparations for Homosexual discrimination.
       
      7. All members of congress who voted for DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) would be incarcerated for crimes against the people of the USA.. Their assets would be seized. 
       
      8. All federal prisons would be controlled by gay only staff. Sex would be considered a human right. Sex would be allowed in prisons. Lube would be provided and funded by the condom tax. Condoms would be considered contraband.
       
      9. The FCC would be disbanded. Censorship would be outlawed. Gay education TV channels would receive federal funding. PBS would be gone. Sorry Big Bird.
       
      10. People with STDs would receive supplementary income. Amount to be allotted would be determined by severity of STD. HIV Positive/AIDS individuals would receive the most.
       
      11. Capital of US would be moved to San Francisco, CA. Pride week in said city would be a week-long federal holiday. 
       
      Stay tuned for more....
