Creep of the Week: COVID-19

There’s a reason #StayTheFuckHome is trending. Because that’s what we should all be doing. As much as possible, of course. There are lots of people who can’t, maybe because they have to work or have medical appointments they can’t miss. In other words, good reasons.

Creep of the Week: Steven Hotze

When I went to the library recently there was a black man, maybe in his 30s, standing outside collecting signatures. Being civic-minded and nosey, I approached him to see what the signatures were for. “I’m running for Congress and I am collecting signatures to get on the ballot,” he said.

Creep of the Week: Paul S. Morton Sr.

It’s been a hell of a week for Pete Buttigieg. The fact that he’s polling so high is amazing and it makes me proud that an openly gay man is doing so well. He’s not my pick (Elizabeth Warren is far more qualified), but his campaign is historic and I love it.

Creep of the Week: Super Happy Fun America

If you said the words “Super Happy Fun America” to me and then asked me what that was, I would have guessed it was the name of a low-budget, USA-themed amusement park with lots of red, white and blue cowboy hats, Big Macs at every concession stand and a requirement that everyone in attendance carry a gun. That, it turns out, is incorrect. "Super Happy Fun America" is actually more awful than that.

Creep of the Week: Candice Keller

Back to back mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas. And by the time you read this, that list will probably have to be updated. Because mass shootings are basically an everyday occurrence in the United States. And we’re becoming dangerously numb to it all.

Creep of the Week: Ryan Fournier

As if I needed another reason to love Elizabeth Warren, she's gone and done something yet again that has upset right-wing Republicans. Granted, she pretty much does this every day by advocating for things Republicans hate like access to health care for everybody and a living minimum wage.

Creep of the Week: Donald Trump

“I’m not going to the fucking White House.” Have more beautiful words ever been spoken by a world champion before? Megan Rapinoe of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team said those words before her team won the World Cup. And now that they’ve won, she’s not backing down.

Creep of the Week: Kevin Swanson

I just finished watching the music video for Taylor Swift’s “You Need To Calm Down.” It’s cute. It’s catchy. And all of Big Gay is in it. That it ends with a call to sign a Change.org petition in favor of the Equality Act is nice, though it would be more useful to direct people how to register to vote because the Equality Act is never going to pass with Republicans in charge.

Creep of the Week: Trump Administration

June is Pride Month, which means anti-LGBTQ folks are losing their goddamn minds. I attended Motor City Pride in Detroit with my wife, our son and my wife’s 69-year-old aunt. It was a family affair. There were rainbows galore, men holding hands with men, women holding hands with women, transgender and genderqueer people holding hands with men or women or with whomever they wanted because it’s pride and love is love, damn it.

Creep of the Week: Trump Administration

The Trump Administration has declared war on transgender people. This isn’t a new revelation, but they have succeeded in dismantling every protection the Obama Administration had put in place for transgender people. You might not have even noticed the most recent rollback unless you follow this subject closely. After all, these past two years it has been all anti-trans all the time. Not to mention the daily barrage of news about Trump and the no good, horrible, very bad people he has working for him throwing norms in the trash and pissing on the rule of law. It’s dizzying.

Creep of the Week: Rep. John Becker

Hopefully by the time you read this the United States isn’t routinely opening up criminal investigations into women who have miscarriages. And I say routinely because there are already cases where women have ended up in prison after their miscarriages were called baby murders.
