The right wing have been using the fact the Nashville shooter was trans as further excuse to hate trans people for anything and everything. All while ignoring most of the shooters in the past 5 years were non trans dudes.
one trans shooters means all trans people are gun toting christian hating monsters who cant be trusted with a firearm, 200 plus regular guys shooter who write psychotic manifestos somehow means absolutely nothing and its not actually that big a deal, in fact we need more guns for everyone.

If it’s anything like the last one, the Bible humpers will be sorely disappointed. Most of this country’s economy is tied up in blue states and blue counties. And as we’re learning elsewhere in the world, no amount of machismo or self-righteous preening can make up for the ability to make stuff and send it where it needs to go.

STOP THE RESTRICT ACT!
I know that the Christian war on Trans folks is a major issue but don’t forget that the Restrict Act is literal 1984.
Y’all gotta multitask your activism.
I’ve been swapping between the two topics left and right like mad around the web.
Admittedly it’s kinda tiring after awhile so the occasional rest is needed.

Oh son of a bitch
I heard a blurb about this and sure enough, the shooter drew some pony art on Furaffinity, and now bronies are being linked to it. And from what I saw, it’s just 2 fucking images. 2 years ago the fandom caught heat because the FedEx shooter was one, and now it’s catching heat again.

I wish all Americans good luck fighting this bill. Technology-related US laws are often a model for other countries. You are defending more than just USA.
Why should we coddle reactionaries
You make it sound like supporting bigotry. But it’s the opposite, it’s fighting bigotry. It’s a vaccine. It’s denying a virus new victims.

Additionally I’d like to note that there is a difference between someone who was for example misinformed about the BLM protests (believing they were all very violent and destructive) and someone who is a KKK member. Pretending that the former is the latter and giving up on them only helps racism spread.
TL;DR bigotry is a spectrum, not a binary divide.

The legislation you’re talking about is literally bipartisan
Also, the right wing paleo-conservativism the Republican Party is bending towards is not fascism. Conflating racism, queerphobia and general bigotry with fascism is a fool’s errand
Mind you, I’m not defending the republicans, but just because something is horrible doesn’t mean it’s fascist

In a bit of goodish news for LGBT+ issues, Disney outsmarted Ron DeathSentence.
In a move of actual 4D chess. The outgoing board of the Reedy Creek Improvment put in place a series of restrictive covenants and resolutions that, in effect, completely locks down the board for the next 50 years or so.
The measures are so restricted that the incoming board of Ron’s handpicked cronies can do little more than maintain the roads and sewers. Everything else was handed directly to Disney.
The best part is it is 100% legal and there is very little that Ron can do about it.

The second best part is that it’s the same trick Republicans have pulled in any number of states after losing power. I LEARNED IT FROM WATCHING YOU, DAD!
The best part is that it invokes an honest-to-God “royal lives” clause. Traditionally, contracts aren’t allowed to last forever, so this one is written to last until the last currently-living descendant of Charles III bites the dust. Plus 21 years.

As a trans person violence in the name of trans is violence against trans.
You don’t make no good message shooting random kids.
I almost think this shooter hates trans.

How many trans people are going to die or have their life unhinged because of this?

Did they ever stop to think about the world they left for their trans brethren? No. Only their own vengeful narcissism.
I do not stand behind this Nashville shooter. They are an enemy to any self respecting trans. They do not realize how much suffering they brought onto fellow trans people.

We where supposed to be the better people. Most of us are.

Conflating fascism and bigotry inherently is damaging to combating the both as they are different social phenomena and therefore cannot be treated the same way
Also that pamphlet isn’t really true but I don’t have time to get into that

The publicity the Adams County sheriff’s office got from suing Afroman for “emotional distress” is a great example of the Streisand Effect. I wouldn’t have known about the whole thing and watched the videos he made making fun of them if the crooked cops didn’t file a frivolous lawsuit.

here here. Im also trans as those who have been in here for a while know. Understanding that we should want to raise ourselves up to be equal to everyone else in society. Not tear eachother apart in senseless violence. Any ideology that calls for a group if they are straight or gay, cis or trans, or dependant on their race, colour, or creed to be subjugated or killed should be rejected immediately.

As nice and concise as Umberto Eco’s Ur-Fascism is, it is a self-defeating description of fascism because it then also later says none of the rules written need to exist in a given state in their totality and nations which are not fascist may all the same have the same rules as an active part of their politics. As such, he commits the sin of being Anglo in his political philosophy.
One may even, gazing through the brief history of the modern era (since the French Revolution) find states which have much of this list as an actually existing component of their national politics, but were not decidedly fascist. And I will happily declare any bastard who calls my boy, the Bringer of Modernitie Napoleon I a fascist a lazy cowardly cur and possibly a German Junker who deserves as bad a fate as they should have received.
I mean hell half of the list probably is even applicable to [city state redacted]

Also over time i found that labeling someone as a fascist really doesn’t do much except as a sort of personal moral condemnation. Personally I am much more interested in what individual beliefs on certain topics on maybe swaying them on those thus over time maybe adjusting their lens in which they view the world and pulling them away from fascist ideology. Would love to see what you think.
@AaronMk
I believe the frenchman that first made the pairing of nationalism with revolutionary leftism to create fascism was form socialist and syndicalist Georges Sorel, correct?

Just out of curiosity I followed that link to see what was happening. My favorite part is all the people with the red eyed lolicon anime demons for avatars that are casting shade on MLP fans.
