Creep of the Week: Voter Suppression

By | 2018-08-08T14:17:56+00:00 August 8th, 2018|Creep of the Week, Opinions|

It is a matter of record that Republicans do not like it when people vote, especially when it’s brown and black people voting. They holler and cry about “voting integrity,” claiming that onerous voter ID laws are the only way to protect this cherished institution. And yet they also work behind the scenes to make it as hard as possible, or at least stand in the way of making it easy.

Creep of the Week: Trump Voters

By | 2018-07-25T14:48:48+00:00 July 11th, 2018|Creep of the Week, Opinions|

The other day I heard a self-proclaimed Democrat who voted for Trump say he didn’t like Hillary. “Bernie would have won. We told them we wanted Bernie,” he said, referring to Sanders winning the primary election in Michigan. “But they didn’t listen to us.”

Creep of the Week: Sarah Huckabee Sanders

By | 2018-06-27T15:59:27+00:00 June 27th, 2018|Uncategorized|

There’s been a lot of talk about “civility” lately which was triggered by the owner of a restaurant asking a woman who is known worldwide for lying on the behalf of a white supremacist administration headed by a man who is trying to, and succeeding in, turning America into a dictatorship.

Creep of the Week: Alliance Defending Freedom

Welp, gay people can’t have cake any more, the Supreme Court said so. It is now the law of the land that cake is intended only for one man and one woman to eat between just the two of them forever and ever. Heterosexuals — and this is the part not being reported by the media — are no longer permitted to eat any other food. It’s cake only. The catch, however, is that only married straights can have cake. Everyone else gets no cake.

Creep of the Week: Dana Rohrabacher

As I write this it is Memorial Day, a day when we as a country mourn our lost veterans and give thanks for service members past and present. Although, let’s be honest, for many Americans it’s a day to grill burgers, drink beer and maybe, just maybe, put on a T-shirt with an eagle on it or American flag swim trunks. Mostly what I feel on this Memorial Day is sad. Sad that our veterans and our current service members have such a totally incompetent and unworthy commander in chief. America owes them all an apology.

Creep of the Week: Donald Trump

If we have to wait until every American gets to know a trans person before full equality is achieved we are never going to get there. Which is why cisgender people need to advocate for trans folks. As anyone who isn’t a cisgender heterosexual white male knows, having to fight for your most basic rights and constantly advocate for your own humanity is exhausting.

Creep of the Week: MassResistance

As I write this it is April 9, 2018, my birthday. It’s also the day John Bolton starts as Trump’s National Security Advisor. Bolton, who was ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush, really wants to go to war with North Korea and Iran. Like, bad. And now we’ve got him whispering into the ear of the dangerously impulsive and ignorant man we have as a leader. Which should make all of us fear that we won’t make it to our next birthdays.

Creep of the Week: Laura Ingraham

By | 2018-07-25T15:37:05+00:00 April 4th, 2018|Creep of the Week, Opinions, Uncategorized|

That’s something she has a knack for, apparently. Doing or saying totally reprehensible things that no decent human would do and then offering a weak apology. Case in point her recent Twitter tantrum in which she made fun of Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg because he didn’t get accepted by colleges he applied to.

Creep of the Week: Betsy DeVos

By | 2018-03-14T13:49:36+00:00 March 14th, 2018|Creep of the Week, Opinions|

On Twitter the thing I probably write most often is “Betsy DeVos is a monster” in reply to stories about her. Now, if you don’t know much about DeVos you might be thinking, “Okay, I get that you don’t agree with her policies, but she’s not an actual monster.”

Creep of the Week: Brandon Morse

Confession: I haven’t been watching the Olympics. I’m not against it or anything, I just have other shit to do. But I’ve been seeing on the internets that a certain Adam Rippon has been ice skating on rainbows, and skier Gus Kenworthy is also out and proud in Pyeongchang representing the U.S.

The so-called "War on Christmas" is so last year. And the year before. And the year before that. But each year right about this time right-wing Christians in America are reminded about how they're cruelly [...]

Creep of the Week: George W. Bush

When the going gets tough, the tough get going... after gay families. And the "tough" aren't actually tough, but are hoping to appear so by taking a swing at this "family values" crowd pleaser. On [...]

Creep of the Week: Ted Haggard

By | 2017-10-31T14:13:33+00:00 October 31st, 2017|Opinions|

Here's a story problem for you. A train carrying a nationally known evangelical pastor leaves the station at 11:23 a.m. traveling 69 miles per hour. If the train travels for approximately three years and stops [...]

Creep of the Week: Dick Cheney

By | 2017-10-31T14:11:43+00:00 October 31st, 2017|Opinions|

Sometimes kids do the most ideologically inconvenient things. Like be a pregnant lesbian when the party you head more or less has taken the position of hating people like her. What's a Dick to do? [...]

Creep of the Week: James Rutz

By | 2018-01-15T15:50:01+00:00 October 31st, 2017|Opinions|

There are plenty of theories out there about what makes kids gay: over bearing mothers or fathers, early exposure to show tunes, letting girls wear pants. Nobody really knows for sure. Nobody, that is, except [...]

Creep of the Year:George W. Bush

By | 2018-01-16T14:44:07+00:00 October 31st, 2017|Opinions|

If there's one thing George W. Bush appreciates it's hard work. At least he claims to on television. I mean, sure the majority of his policies benefit those who live off stock dividends and inheritance [...]

Creep of the Week: Focus on the Family

By | 2017-10-31T08:43:12+00:00 October 31st, 2017|News|

Focus on the Family Think of Focus on the Family as an anti-gay Paul Revere, barreling through town screeching, "The homos are coming, the homos are coming!" The right-wing Christian organization sees the issue of [...]
