      You said in the gun control thread I get full tactical nukes. Does that mean blasting red state legislatures while in session, too?

      • It sucks hearing it, but at the same time, I'm happy Republicans are doubling down on being bigots. It'll eventually cost them their pants.

        • We may be witnessing the Westboro Baptism of the GOP. The goal may be not policy, but to get money through controversy and red meat, and by inviting this very backlash.

          There have always been people on the Far Right, even beyond braindead wingnuts like MTG and Gosar, who feed off the movement without advancing it. They generate an immense amount of publicity and attention primarily because their hate-filled rhetoric and insanely surreal assertions generate backlash, which they monetize as clicks.

          Maybe the entire GOP is moving towards this. If so, it is in their interest to be in the opposition and never to have responsibility for policy, because it is far easier to talk trash when you can be utterly irresponsible.

          I vote we enable the parts of the RWNM that want to lose because it is better for their business model. The irony is the greatest factotum of this strategy was Dump, who would have been so much better off just losing, claiming theft, and living the rest of his life off that lucrative poutrage. But Dump being so incompetent (and Hillary so hated), he f-cked up and actually won an election, and now he would go to prison for it if we had an actual justice system.

            Last year, the Dems backed John Gibbs in the primary, who ended up losing in the general. John believes the 19th should be abolished. Then Republicans tried adding anti-trans rhetoric to Prop 3, which passed overwhelmingly, and the GQP lost the governor's chair, the SOS, the AG, and both chambers of state legislature. If I had $20 to burn as a joke, I'd give it to "Krazy Kristi" just to watch her bungle again in 2024.

              Eventually the GOP will drop all pretense and go for the 13th.

                And we already know the GQP thinks 1-10 don't apply to anyone outside of them.

                • Opponents of Ohio's Prop 1 are focusing on parental rights, saying the proposal will allow trans kids to get surgeries, etc.

                  • Honestly, I find that troublesome. You all know where I stand on this issue (well, "these", since we're discussing abortion and trans rights). While support for legalized abortion is strong and a winning argument for Democrats, support for trans issues are much less solid. If these ghouls can conflate the two, it may be enough to spoil the vote. I very, very much hope not, but...

                    • Perhaps, but I suspect that 99% of the suburban women who turn out for abortion rights aren't the ones being all TERFy on trans issues. I may be wrong, but my impression is that most TERFs are conservatives who use concern trolling about feminist progress and 'real' womanhood as a cloak for their bigotry.

                      • Some, likely, sure. I base this only on those that I know, so small sample size caveats like you read about here...

                        but the handful of "mostly socially left but anti trans" people I know come in a few flavors:
                        1. Pro choice, but have bought the lie that "trans people" are going after their kids.
                        2. Havent thought about it at all as it doesn't impact them in any way, and only really hear the anti-trans side so that's them.
                        3. (Much more rare) So suspicious of white people that they think being trans is white people trying to appropriate minority status from them.

                        The rest are just ignorant bigots.

                          Part of my optimism is the GQP in Michigan tried the exact same tactics last year for Prop 3 and it passed by double digits. I also know the Ohio GQP tried this earlier and it did not succeed.

                            • Right wingers claim rates of "detransition" (going off hormones) are high, like 80-90%. Yet the regret rate remains at roughly 2%.

                              • Coming soon in the GOP platform.

                                The Iraqi politician who introduced the bill into parliament is absolutely certain: Any behavior that deviates from heterosexuality is a danger to his country. This is why, in mid-August, Raad al-Maliki introduced a bill that would amend Iraq's "Law on Combatting Prostitution" from 1988 to make same-sex relations a crime, alongside any kind of expression of transgender identity.

                                Should al-Maliki's bill be passed, same-sex relationships in Iraq would be punishable by death or long prison terms. The bill also pertains to transgender women and sets a penalty of up to three years in jail or a fine of up to €7,100 ($7,700) for anyone who "imitates a woman." The latter is defined as wearing makeup or women's clothing or "appearing as a woman" in public.
