Gays For LGBTrump: Let’s Make America 8Straight Again

LGBTrump

I stared at the newest form of our acronym “LGBTrump” confused about the “rump” attached to it. I mean lots of people have settled with LGBT+ for incisivity sake, but why  ‘rump’?

LGBTrump

Then suddenly in an epiphany, I realized someone had purposely sullied our LGBT acronym by adding this horses ass to the end of it. But who would do such a thing? Gays for Trump or as they like to be known “LGBTrump” did this nasty deed.

But why would they do that? It looks kind of trendy but wouldn’t they have known that rump might be offensive to all LGBT people? Not to mention the T who would have his smelly rump next to them?

Turns out it wasn’t meant to be next to the T, it was meant to be instead of the T.

Gays for trump founder Joseph Murray doesn’t think that transgender people should be a part of the LGB community, therefore his defiling the LGBT acronym wasn’t just justifiable, it was inevitable. But according to the LGBTrump founder, that’s not transphobic.

In a post for Breitbart, reports PINK News, the group’s administrator Joseph Murray claimed that Trump’s stance wasn’t at odds with his group because the “sex vs. gender fight is not the same fight of gays and lesbians for equal legal status of their same-sex relations”.

He wrote: “What Trump said does not disqualify him from being the best candidate on gay rights that the Republican Party has ever nominated — because gay rights and trans rights are not synonymous.

Murray continued: “Though LGBT activists are loathe to admit it, the plight of transgender Americans are starkly different from lesbian and gay Americans.
“The HB2 law, also known as the privacy and security act, says everyone’s sexual privacy should be protected by requiring men and women to use the public bathrooms designated for their sex.
“The law also accommodates transgender people because state law allows people to change their legal sex once they take medical procedures that clearly show which side of the sex and gender fence they’d rather stand. That state solution — although imperfect — is a better and fairer fix than a one-size-fits-all policy set by lobbyists and party hacks in Washington D.C.

Joseph Murray acknowledging his views are unappreciated by most of our community posted on his Facebook page Gays for trump LGBTrump defending his transphobic views:

“Just for the record – The Breitbart column I wrote about Trump & HB2 did not endorse or disparage transgender rights. It did two things – (i) show that Trump DID NOT flip-flop on the issue (despite media reports) and (ii) explain that gay rights and transgender rights are different. Don’t let the twisted media divide this great cause! Now let’s get back to making this country great again!”

So essentially, Joseph Murray would be in favor of measures to enforce HB2 in public accommodations, such as the leaked NC HB2 SRS ID card legislation proposed. Maybe Murray would also favor a required anal test for gay people before they receive their pink triangle card? You say it would never happen here? The world has heard those same defenses of bigotry that Trump espouses before.

As you know Trump has been somewhat supportive in the past, most notably allowing transgender contestants to compete in his beauty pageants and all that entails. Well, last week the political winds shifted blowing Trump for the moment further right.

“IT’S EASY TO COME OUT OF THE CLOSET … IT’S DANGEROUS TO COME OUT AS A TRUMP SUPPORTER.”

Eric a vocal Trump supporter, declined to provide his last name to NBC news due to fear of violence or “doxxing,” the malicious publication of a private citizen’s personal information online.

“When you put your name out on a national level as supporting someone who attracts that much vitriol and disgust, you’re putting yourself up for doxxing … Especially for someone like me who’s considered a ‘traitor,'” added Eric, who is a member of LGBTrump, an online network for LGBTQ people who support the GOP presidential hopeful.

So will gay Republicans be wearing Trump 2016 t-shirts and “Make America Great Again” hats at LGBTQ Pride events this year? Eric said it’s unlikely.

“It’s easy to come out of the closet,” he said. “It’s dangerous to come out as a Trump supporter.”

Hey, this is America and everyone has a right to political ambitions. But if promoting those opinions means dividing our LGBT community à la Barny Frank, and injecting the gay elitist exclusionism that used to divide our community, you lose my support. And IF your politics means destroying the LGBT acronym by defiling the T with this ass you lost my respect even further, gain a detractor.

Heres the thing Gays for Trump and Caitlyn Jenner. Your support of Trump’s transphobia gives tea party another way chip away at all of our hard earned rights, Lesbian, gay, Bi, Trans and yes even our misguided misanthropes like you. If tRump god forbid, get’s elected those winds will blow harder and no one, even if they live in a mountain-top eagles nest, will be safe.

    Gay rights and Trans rights are mot synonymous?
    Equal rights………that’s kinda the point.
    Joseph…… Your just another brick in the wall.

      The only difference between civil rights movements is the impact of their denial. The rhetoric has been largely unchanged for centuries – *this* line is too far and will be the one that destroys our society, it’s against God’s law, it violates the natural order. If only rhetoric were a natural resource; we could laud the antis for their fervent recycling!

    HawkAtreids have you ever actually read the Christian Bible? If you did you would know that trans people have been specifically welcomed by God, Jesus and the Holy spirit.

    I am afraid its just you Hawk alone, without god who hates us.

      I think I am owed an apology. First, that you managed to misread my comment so heinously that you would come to the knee-jerk reaction that I am anti-trans – that’d be a trick for an out-genderqueer man whose business partner and most of his “family of choice” is trans. Second, that you’d assume that I’m making the religious argument when it is patently clear that I’m declaiming it (I even referred to those against the extension of equal rights as “antis”, for crying out loud) and how it is treated like a Mad Lib in which one only needs to swap “trans rights” in for “gay rights”, “interracial marriage”, or “abolition”.

      Perhaps you should spend a little more time attempting to engage if you misunderstand someone’s comment. I get that you’re “outspoken” and “gonzo”, but that does not excuse attacking people because you failed to understand the most basic underpinnings of their argument.

    You aren’t owed an apology. But I am even more confused by this second comment.

    • HawkAtreides July 14, 2016 at 12:16 pm

      Before you read the rest of my reply, search “hawkatreides ACLU”, check my comment history there, find out that I’m not an anti-trans Christian-Right bigot – I’m a gender-queer neo-Pagan with a gay stepson, a trans business partner, and the overwhelming majority of my social circle is LGBT (with most of that trans).

      You claimed I hate trans people. I don’t. I’ve helped fight this very issue – the separation of LGB and T – to the point that I’ve been banned from commenting on certain sites that claim to be LGBT but that I have come to realize are LG-only (including bi erasure) because I offended too many sensibilities by politely pointing out that the people there were recycling arguments that were used against gay rights not even ten years ago. I’ve been flooded with graphic images of rape trauma by anti-trans bigots, been called mentally ill for supporting trans rights, and had my Facebook account disabled by Facebook’s abusive “real name” policy to the point that I willingly deleted my account rather than be subjected to the cyclical abuse that anti-trans bigots inflict upon any ear they can reach. I started reading this site after you helped break the story about a local-to-me pizzeria using an anti-trans slur on their Facebook page, and just a few months ago I tried to get anyone – including this site – to report on the fact that after the owner’s massive non-apology, he began an anti-trans rant on his personal Facebook page that ended with threats to kill a trans person who had been arguing against him. I’ve even been excoriated by pseudo-allies for daring to say that cis and binary appropriation of LGBTQ terminology is damaging the very minorities they claim to support by giving rise to pseudo-queer (i.e., self-identified cis-hetero-binary, but demanding the use of pseudo-LGBT terminology like “qi/qir/qiself”) and pseudo-trans (e.g., “trans-ethnic”) groups that dilute the public understanding of OUR identities.

      And in case you still haven’t quite understood the point I was making in my original comment, I was pointing out that the Christian theocratic/theonomic contingent in America (what we now call the “Religious Right”) has used the exact same arguments they use today against trans people (i.e., that it is against God’s Law, that it undermines the foundations of our society, and that it will destroy the nation) when fighting against gay marriage ten years ago, civil rights fifty years ago, the abolition of slavery a hundred and fifty years ago, and the continued existence of my Native ancestors centuries prior. The only difference between each of the movements against oppression is what the final impact is when they are delayed or denied.

      Maybe I’m not owed an apology – but I believe I’m owed the dignity of not being smeared by someone I’ve been abused trying to support.
