Fuck the Supreme Court. & fuck Kamala Harris. & fuck Aaron Sorkin. & fuck every dipshit political pundit who's ever argued that laws that impact whether #trans people are allowed to live safely & participate freely in society are merely a "distraction" from the "real issues"...
...I had originally planned to comment on Kamala Harris's presidential bid today. It was going to be a thoughtful non-profanity-laden personal statement along the lines of: While I will likely end up voting for whichever Democrat opposes Trump in the general election...
...I cannot in good conscience vote for a candidate in the Democratic Primary if they have a record of pushing anti-#transgender policies. For Harris, this includes not only her actions as CA AG to block healthcare for #trans prisoners, but also...
...her long record of actively marginalizing sex workers & pushing for FOSTA/SESTA – both of which, quite frankly, will impact far more #transgender people than Trump's military ban. Anyway, today's SCOTUS decision is an indication that there is, for the foreseeable future...
...a 5-4 majority who will uphold any anti-#transgender legislation that comes their way. In this anti-#trans backlash environment we now live in, I cannot risk voting for any representative who will inflict additional harm upon my community, and/or...
...consider #trans ppl's rights and well being to be a "distraction from real issues." Or to put it another way for all the political pragmatists out there: It is NOT PRAGMATIC FOR ME TO VOTE FOR SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T SUPPORT TRANS PEOPLE'S RIGHT TO FREELY PARTICIPATE IN SOCIETY.
a clarification: SCOTUS upheld Trump's ban. Harris denied trans-healthcare for inmates. Sorkin (& many others) have described #trans issues as mere "distractions." not equivalent, but all are indications that our rights, well-being, safety, etc, are disposable in their eyes.
