Texas’s anti-transgender bathroom bill, explained – Vox

By | Blog, Politics, Uncategorized | No Comments

Last year, North Carolina Republicans passed a sweeping anti-LGBTQ law that, among other measures, prohibited transgender people from using the bathroom that aligns with their gender identity in schools and government buildings. The law inspired a furious backlash, leading businesses to boycott the state and contributing to Gov. Pat McCrory’s defeat on Election Day.Despite the backlash, Texas is gearing up to pass its own law prohibiting trans people from using the bathroom that aligns with their gender identity.On Thursday, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick unveiled SB6. The bill, if approved by the legislature, would prohibit trans people from using the bathroom or locker room for their gender identity in schools and other public buildings, with violations enforced through a civil fine of at least $1,000 per offense. It would also let businesses set anti-trans bathroom policies, overriding any local laws that say they can’t.

Hello, guys! I know it’s been a while since I did my last post. I have been really busy with my real life and with my other work. Especially, since this past week was the first week after the holiday season. So I  was really swamped at work.

However, this is not what this post is supposed to be about. I want to talk briefly about a very important subject of this anti-transgender bill that’s currently going through the Texas legislator. It is obvious that this bill is based on unsubstantiated paranoia and fear and it must not be passed at all costs.

Not only is this further oppressing a segment of the population that is already been seen so much discrimination both legally and socially. This is trying to strip the transgender residents of Texas basic human rights as the US citizens and transgender residents of their very dignity.

I have social anxiety and I was very nervous call my state representatives but I did it anyway because I value the rights of my transgender of my transgender brothers and sisters. And if you are any part of the LGBT+ community or even consider yourself an ally then you should you care about this! So please if you live in Texas, please drop everything now and call your state representatives.

 

Until The Fat Lady Sings

By | Blog, Politics, Uncategorized | No Comments

So It’s the day before Thanksgiving and I know damn well I should be preparing for that, but I  just finished reading this CNN article that says that a lot of technological experts are pleading with Hilary Clinton to challenge the results of the elections in the swing states because it’s possible that Russia has hacked our elections. I also have to say, that I find it really freaking suspicious that every poll worth their salt was dead wrong.

Our election results need to be audited and you can sign this petition here and please read this article from Bustle.com that talks about how to contact your state electors. Also, please for anyone with a basic sense of fairness to please call or email your state representative and demand a congressional investigation into our elections.

I really want Hilary to dust off that pantsuit and get back into this fight because the fat lady hasn’t sung just yet and we can not abide having this orange buffoon in the white house. Also, can I talk the time to laugh at how Trump had the nerve to try to force the Hamilton cast to apologize because they dare ask Vice-President Elect Pence to work for all people? And no, the Hamilton cast was responsible for some of its audience booing Pence. Actually, I would have booed the man who believes that I should go through conversation therapy because I’m queer.  I totally support booing the man who was the most homophobic governor in the country.

Anyway, I want to tell everyone happy thanksgiving and I hope that you have a safe holiday.

Pick Up Your Picket Signs

By | Blog, Uncategorized | No Comments

So right now President Obama is helping Trump (because I refuse to call him President Elect)  in his transition of power. I’m not going to lie folks, I was fucking depressed yesterday. I just canceled all my appointments, and just sat in my room in my night-gown reading fanfic.

Today, I actually got up and took a long walk and realized that the world is moving on. The world is picking themselves up and marching. I live in San Antonio, and there were almost zero protests here (because San Antonio is lame) but in Austin people were marching in the streets and I wish I could have been there.

 

But since I can’t be there, I’m just going to say right here and now that Trump won this shit by conning folks, by deception and by cheating and I fucking refuse to sit down and shut up.  But I’m also scared to leave my house. I heard about a black lady who was accosted with a gun by a bunch of white trump supporters. I’m honestly thinking of buying pepper spray. My dad who is ex-military already brought a gun.

But even through my fear, I’m going to speak out until I can no longer speak out. I’m not moving to Canada, I’m not fleeing the country that my family help built for years, in where my father served his country for.  We deserve to be here,  and I’m not going anywhere

And if you come at me in the streets, I’m going to pepper spray your ass and call the police. Because that shit is illegal and you deserve to be in jail. And if the police won’t help me, I’m taking it to the public, to the media, to social media. I will not be silenced, I won’t back down.

And for all my people of color, for my dreamers, and illegal immigrants, for Muslims, pagans, Buddhists, Jewish, Hindus, for my gays, my lesbians, my asexuals, my bisexuals, my trans brothers and sisters I will be right beside you.  Keep your chin up!  Ya’ll, pick up your goddamn picket signs, and march until you no longer able to.

Do Not Go Quietly Into That Good Night

By | Blog, Politics, Uncategorized | No Comments

So the election is over, and last night I was praying for that the results of the election was a nightmare and I would wake up to a sane and just world. Apparently, the real world is neither just or sane.  So two months we will be signing in President Trump.  But you know what I briefly considered moving to Canada.

First off, I can’t afford it. I’m a poor black artist,  But also I’m not going away, I’m not going to be quiet. I’m here and queer and black and I will be shouting about it. I’m going to march in the streets with my queer brothers and sisters and my black brother and sisters. I will not like tyranny win.

But I want to you guys to not give up. To not go quietly into that good night. We bide our time, we will organize, we will march until they are no more people to talk about it.We went through Bush, and we can get through this.

Just please, please vote in the midterms and keep your chins up.
