It's a day made notable by superstition and the string of horror movies by the same name.
But Friday for you TransGriot readers also means that I get to do my usual business of chronicling the mind blowing stupidity that runs amok in our world.
And let's get to our latest spine chilling episode of the TransGriot Shut Up Fool Awards.
Honorable mention number one is a group award for the Dallas Police and Fire Pension Board for their cowardly punting instead of leading on the issue of providing benefits to same-gender loving couples.
Honorable mention number two is Montana state Rep David Moore (R-Missoula), who continued the GOP War On Women by filing a bill to outlaw any nipple exposure by men or women, along with any clothing that “gives the appearance or simulates” the buttocks, genitals, pelvic area, or female nipple.
So ladies, don't wear your yoga pants in Montana, you could be arrested and jailed for it.
Honorable mention number three is the now fired Sony exec Amy Pascal, for her problematic remarks about paying female Hollywood stars equally in this Tina Brown interview.
Honorable mention number four goes to Tennessee state legislator Jerry Sexton. This teapublican wants to make the Bible the official state book. Never mind the fact that the Tennessee constitution states "no preference shall ever be given, by law, to any religious establishment or mode of worship."
Honorable mention number five is Teapublican legislator Frank Artiles, who doubled down on pimping his unjust HB 583 that criminalizes transpeeps going to relive themselves in the restroom by ignorantly stating in a BuzzFeed interview that using the restroom is a choice for trans people.
Naw you vanillacentric privileged conservasshole, it's a biological necessity.
You can also start the process of being agents of your own liberation and letting my people pee by signing this Change.org petition protesting Artiles' dehumanizing and jacked up bill.
Honorable mention number six is SC senator Thomas Corbin (R), who referred to women while opposing a bill that makes it harder for people who commit domestic violence to acquire a handgun as 'lesser cuts of meat' along with other sexist remarks.
This waste of DNA is also a lesser cut of meat: A male chauvinist pig
Honorable mention number seven is Supreme Court
Too late for that, dude. You're not only seen as anti-gay, you're also by your SCOTUS rulings, spoken words and dissents and opinions also seen as anti-woman, anti-Latino, anti-Black.....
This week's Shut Up Fool winner is Alabama Supreme Court Chief
In addition to ordering Massive Resistance 2.0 in defiance of the federal court ruling while citing that bogus 'states rights' bullshit they lost on the War To Perpetuate Slavery battlefields 150 years ago, he bristled at a comparison of him and another Alabama civil rights oppressor in George Wallace,and claimed he had many friends who are homosexual.
Oh really Roy? They must be Log Cabin sellouts or GOProud.
Yes, you are just like George Wallace was in 1963, a human rights oppressor. Deal with it Something else that I have noted in my five decades on this space rock about haters and oppressors is that all of them claim to have friends in the marginalized group they gleefully oppress.
And oh yeah, Roy Moore, shut up fool!
