    This Anti-Trans hysteria sweeping the nation is getting rather horrifying.

    In direct response to Target being pro-trans, a City in Alabama has made it punishable by 6 months jailtime to go to the bathroom in public if you're trans.

    This scares me because a State Rep here in AZ tried to pass one of these bills a few years ago, and I'm worried the fact that they're passing in a lot of states now will light the fire under him to try again...

    For what it's worth Little Caesar's has pizza with bacon wrapped crust....stuffing crust with things is so passe when you can just wrap the crust in it.

    But yeah how tacky and stupid can you get?

    Yeah well, we just have to deal with this issue objectively. Just deal with facts first and draw conclusions about which values we should have after on the trans issue. That way everyone who have a problem with transpeople will just look fucking stupid and they will not be an issue, more like another unchangable fact off the world that we just have to work to smudge out. My problem with a lot of LGBT supporter is that they don't actually have the balls to stand up for their beliefs or choices. Instead they demand to be respected for their decision and while it is fine to think you ought to be respected, you need to be able to have confidence in your belief. That will never fucking work. People who hate transvestites will hate them anyway. Trying to change it is pointless and a waste of time and money.

    While people hating other people for rather arbitrary reasons or just plain ignorance will never end that doesn't mean people should be content and sit on their hands when some asshole tries to pass a law at the local, state, or federal level that's not only a far more legitimate waste of time and money but also stealthily or outright trying to ignore the rule in the US constitution concerning seperation of church and state.

    They* got their reservations**, they should be damn grateful for that***!








    *"They" does not include unrecognized tribes, recognized tribes that have been denied land, and individual off-reservation Indians
    **Reservations may or may not include access to fresh water, law enforcement, a functioning economy, or basic day-to-day things like banks or markets
    ***"That" includes uranium poisoning, companies building waste disposal areas by water sources, being essentially forced to be the place to get cigarettes or gamble, rampant alcoholism, getting gunned down by police, dying languages only spoken by the very old, being denied pensions for war vets, and the bureau dedicated to their welfare getting jack shit for proper funding

    You stupid motherfucker I AM BLACK. I've been in the fucking trenches and I've seen every single problem my people deal with. I understand what they need because I've tested this. My people and their health goes before your need to apologize for shit that seriously fucking hurts my community. If you want to find ways to help my community you fucking adress my facts. Because otherwise there is nothing else we need to talk about. Your insecurities and lack of spine to actually tell black people what we need to hear shouldn't be the cause of 500 of my own people dying every single fucking year in my own city. You're indirectly apologizing for a downright genocide and the empoverishment, as well as the complete destruction of my people because you can't find the courage in your convictions and that bothers the fuck out of me.

    Do you think we have problems with ourselves because we don't get enough help? No, we got problems because you people who have never stepped your foot in the hood at night think you know what's best for us and try to regulate laws that are patronizing, stupid and only cause problems. The fact that my state pay trillions of dollars in taxes every year to maintain murderers for 7 years without sentence in prison is fucking sick and a violation off human rights.

    The fact that they can only use our county jail as more or less a watercooler for the cities gangbangers with murder charges makes other known gangbangers with gun charges get out and start killing people again. Starting an endless circle of violence that I have seen my whole life.

    I only say what I say because this is what my community needs. And I don't need some fucking yuppie who starts crying when they're called a faggot on youtube to tell me otherwise.

    I've seen the effects these things have on my community. And you wouldn't be able to tell a black guy anything in his face whatsoever. You're worse than any fucking racist on the internet, because I can check a racist in real life period. Your ideals form laws that literally turn everything to shit.

    The only people I respect in this world are people who are in control off their emotions and confident in their beliefs. You are neither, which makes you what we call a fufu ass nigga period. If you want to help my community by listening to what WE think first. Period.

    Some​one's definitely not in control of their emotions. That's for sure.

    Yes, I know what race you are, you've made that very clear repeatedly in several posts. That's why I started with that specific example before giving half a dozen others. Because no, you are not the only group that has been harassed and screwed with over the centuries.

    What you're saying the civil rights movement was a bad idea? That all the above ostracized groups should have just rolled over and NOT fought for equal rights just because people are *always* going to hate them anyway? Because that's what the LGBT groups and muslims are going through now.

    No one is arguing the tough life you have obviously had or your personal experience, or that things still suck for a lot of minorities.

    Things that while not the same as your experience as a black man from a bad neighborhood, are still bigoted, racist, close minded, unfair, sometimes lethal, and overall detrimental to society as a whole. Things can and will change over time but to not be persecuted or hated is something that takes sacrifice and education, and yes, fighting for, and spilled blood, to achieve. You more than most should understand that, instead of hating other discriminated groups.

    Ok, there's a lot wrong with what you said, especially.... yeah, the fact that you seemed to lose control of your emotions despite that being what you're attacking another group for... But this part in particular is one of the dumbest things you said:

    Quote Originally Posted by Jameswuds View Post

    You don't get to use a slur pointed at another group of people like that. If any of us used the N-Word, I'm positive you'd have something to say about it, so don't go around using a Slur pointed at another group. That's just basic respect, tho based on your calling Robby a "Motherfucker" I'm assuming you lack this.

    Word usage DOES matter. If two people went on television and debated Affirmative action, one side saying Racism is still bad enough that we need it, the other side saying things have gotten better to the point that we don't anymore, the second guy might have a well thought out and well reasoned argument why he believes Affirmative Action is no longer a good thing, but if he refers to black people with the N-Word the entire speech, NOBODY is going to take his point seriously.

    The other big problem here is that you're doing that thing where you're trying to make inequality a contest. "Only the minority with the biggest history of oppression deserves rights! Everyone else, wait until things are 100% perfect for that group before its your turn!".

    The world doesn't work that way. We, as a society, can focus on more than one important issue at a time. LGBT People face discrimination, we get beaten, sometimes to death for being ourselves. Newsflash: We can't choose that. This is a worthy cause that we deserve to step up and fight.

    Especially since Segregation is coming back and this time it's directed at us. Yes, this Trans Bathroom issue is literally segregation. We are being told there are public accommodations we aren't allowed to use based solely on who we are. In some areas, People like me have to choose between going into a bathroom where, if someone in there doesn't like us, they might get us thrown in jail vs. going into the OTHER bathroom where if someone doesn't like us in there, they might follow us into the parking lot and beat us.
    For Gay people, there are businesses that can now refuse them service for no other reason than "They are gay". Hell, there are some areas where the "Religious freedom" law they passed is so Broad, it could be used to discriminate against ANYONE if the person doing the discriminating cites religion as the reason. GUESS what some bigot assholes used to justify Racism in the Segregation days.

    This is essentially "Whites Only Drinking Fountains" all over again, tho, once again, as I stated above, on an obviously lower scale, but it's STILL a serious problem that shouldn't be ignored.
