The Advocate Covers the Southern Baptist Convention Attack on Trans People

Posted by on Thu, Jun 12, 2014 at 11:45 AM

The day after I raised a stink about the stink that wasn't being raised about the trans-bashing actions of Southern Baptist Convention—actions that are certain to drive up the suicide rate among young trans people—trans journalist Parker Marie Molloy jumps on the story.

Thanks a lot, your majesty. Let's all heap praise on Dan for doing his job, and in the whiniest way possible. You're a goddamned hero. Time to take another well-deserved month long celebratory vacation!!

The thing I keep coming back to with these religious fanatics - people who insist on supernatural patriarchs - is how their "theology" keeps circling back around to a kind of simplistic obesiance to biology - to reproduction - which is in fact the expression of their evolutionary, naturalist urges. Here again, their god is genetic biology (as expressed in genitals) to which they bow and scrape.

It smelled fine from here Dan. Maybe you have a dead rat in your computing device. Whew, they can be stinky.

I like Parker Marie as a name. I think that's a good solid choice, implying general good taste.

Dan loves poking the Trans thin skins with a stick. Raku's army should be here any time now...

@2 It's selective-reading-theology. If you want to talk about how God created Man, Genesis is kind of the last word on that theological subject. It contains not one, but TWO creation stories. For some reason, punk-ass, -phobic, pontificating fundamentalists pay no fucking attention to the FIRST one.

Contemplate the meaning of Genesis 1:27

"27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."

Dudes. God is male AND female.

@7: Fun fact: in Judaic thought, God is traditionally referred to in the masculine, but God's divine presence (shechina) is referred to in the feminine.

A vote? I don't get it. Isn't God the one who decides what's what, not a majority of some group of mere mortals?

Dan, this is not a good look for you. Don't let some college frosh twerp stand for all trans activists. Telling trans activists what they *should* focus on makes you look like a jerk.

This is the fat fight and the bi fight all over again. Yes, you made some dumb comments in the past, some of which were pretty hurtful. You've apologized, and changed your behavior for the better. But these continued swipes and pokes and backhanded compliments is passive-aggressive bullshit. If you actually thought the concerns voiced to you were valid, you wouldn't need to constantly say how you're not anti- whatever or pat yourself on the back every time someone publicly recognizes your growth.

Jeez, grow up.
