More on the right wing freakout over Easter and the Transgender Day of Visibility

The Daily Show show had fun at the expense of Faux News and other rightwing news sources losing their minds over the fact that this year, because of a calendar coincidence, Transgender Day of Visibility coincided with Easter. And let’s be clear, these people know better. They are just pretending to be outraged, like a lot of their other ‘outrages’.

Desi Lydic made the important point that what these people object to is not that the visibility day coincides with Easter, they dislike the fact that the transgender community exists at all.

Also, make sure you get to the very funny conversation she has with Michael Kosta that begins at the 6:35 mark.

    “Do you love your mom OR do you hate slavery?” ROFLMAO

    I do have to admit I had never known about Transgender Awareness Day, so my thanks goes to Fox News for this enlightening info.

    They should be eternally grateful to the transgender community. Being outraged by the existence of blacks, gays and Jews was probably getting stale for the bigots. What LBJ said sixty-ish years ago still applies: “If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”

    She’s good and comedic and so forth.

    But her voice! So very shrill and nasal, itself a parody, I’d like to think. So USAnian.

    Lol. Who but Morales would respond to a post about bigotry with a double whammy of misogyny and parochial nationalism. X-D

  5. John Morales says

    What a stupid, stupid thing to write, Silentbob!

    Who but bob the Unsilent would interject themselves to express an opinion about my opinion, purely because it’s my opinion, and be so stupidly wrong? Nobody!

    Welcome back, I missed your persistent interjections into threads purely to talk about me.
    That seemed… unnatural. Like a drought.

    So, tell me more about my purported misogyny, as you see it.

    It will amuse.

  6. John Morales says

    In trans community jargon an “egg” is a trans person who hasn’t come out yet.

    Very very anglophilic of you. 😉

    So there’s a certain poetry to Easter (fertility festival — shares a root with ‘esgtrogen’)

    In every culture, yessiree!

  7. Deanna Gilbert says

    Slight correction…an egg isn’t a closeted trans person. They’re a trans person who doesn’t realize they’re trans yet. Once they come to that realization, they’ve “hatched”.

  8. John Morales says


    Isn’t it “parochial nationalism” to mention purely Northern Hemisphere traditions, bob the Unsilent?

    (I mean, mentioning something is USAnian merits that from you)

    [trying another tack; when you address me purely to talk about me rather than the subject at hand, open season on you. See how it goes]

    big shocker that caitlyn jenner had to take a coincidence of the calendar to once again position herself as “one of the good ones.” the leopards are coming for all of our faces. you can only avoid them temporarily.

    “And let’s be clear, these people know better. They are just pretending to be outraged, like a lot of their other ‘outrages’.”

    Example: the bogus “Obama will kill your granny” death panels.
    Example: The army manouver in Texas at the end of Obama’s presidency that was supposed to be a preparation for a coup d’etat.
    Example: There are a million bajillion very late abortions (no, there are not).
    The first big BS I recall was the claim that public money was used for an art project with a crucifix immersed in urine (NO, no public money was involved).

    More grifters…
    “Donald Trump’s Massive $175 Million Bond MAY BE FAKE!”

    I have not had time to check the sources, but whenever Trump is involved you might as well assume fraud is involved until proven otherwise. It saves time.
