Shut Up Fool Awards-MAJOR! Film Debut Edition
I've been talking about this for several years, and now tonight it's finally going to happen.
For those of you in the Bay Area, you will get the pleasure of seeing the MAJOR! documentary by Annalise Ophelian and StormMiguel Florez finally light up the silver screen. That will happen tonight at the Castro Theater at 7:30 PM PST as part of the San Francisco Trans Film Fest
Sad I can't be there for it, but hope this screening is a MAJOR! success. (pun intended)
Speaking of lighting things up, it's Friday, and time for me to handle my usual weekly business of calling out the fool, fools or groups of fools that just need it.
It's this week's edition of the TransGriot Shut Up Fool Awards!
Honorable mention number on is HERO hater Dave Welch, who parted his lips to say that trans people can be 'cured' through 'Biblical counseling'.
Oh, is that what you're calling reparative therapy these days? How about curing yourself of that deep seated transphobia you obviously have a problem with
Honorable mention number two is Carlos Maza, whose problematic WTF moment was trying to blame Beyonce for the Prop 1 loss and claim she had 'ignored the LGBT community'.
Really? If you had talked to or listened to some peeps in Black LGBT Houston, you may have had a more successful result for your campaign,
Honorable mention number three is Mat Staver, who called for Houston mayor Annise Parker to 'resign and let someone else do the job' on right wing radio.
How about you give the same advice to your client Kim Davis first? Besides dumbazz, she leaves office on January 1.
Honorable mention number four is Tennessee state Rep Bud Hulsey (R-Kingsport) who proves what I have said numerous times that the most dangerous bigot is the one that has the power to write legislation.
Honorable mention number five is Jared Woodfill, who hoodwinked and bamboozled people into voting against HERO by using bathroom hysteria, but is defending a man who admitted to taking photos of women changing in a bathroom without their knowledge.
They sure do love defending perverts don't they? Especially when the perverts are white male conservative Republicans like Jason Duggar and Jared Fogle.
Honorable mention number six is Donald Trump, for all the stupid stuff he said this week.
This week's Shut Up Fool Award winner is Ben Carson, for a string of ignorant, bigoted and logic defying comments that keeps him in the running for 2015 Shut Up Fool Of The Year
Separate bathrooms for trans people? Really, kneegrow? You are that desperate for GOP votes you conveniently forgot the last time this country had segregated bathrooms they were aimed at our people, and the same rhetoric to justify them was coming out of the mouths of Confederate flag waving segregationists?
Naw Uncle Ruckus, er Uncle Ben, me and my trans brothers and trans sisters will continue to poop and pee in the potty corresponding to our outward gender presentation. Too bad if you and the conservafools you are cooning it up for don't like that.
Ben Carson, shut the hell up fool!
