Right-wing media giants say LGBTQ bar patrons are responsible for their own murders

The level of hatred is appalling.   They are even attacking Richard Fierro, who risked his life to stop the assault.

 

Are we just not supposed to talk about the US Army Major taking his family down to the local drag club for a night out?”

In response, one Gab user wrote, “If it’s not -holy buckets- he’s helping to molest children and he’s all for it. Fa***t dad in closet.

 

 I just don't understand this level of hate.

Deflect, deny and point fingers at everyone else for what they do themselves.  Same old story.  I'm not at all surprised they've turned on Fierro as well.  Can't have a hero who goes against their philosophy of hate & discrimination; no that will never do.  Got to demonize him, too.

 

Nothing new under the sun.  It just gets worse...

I've noticed that most people who attack the idea of LGBTQ+ bars have never been to one.  Those on the outside see it as something like a cross between a loud, thumping club and a sex dungeon. Like, people go there to hook up.  But the folks writing this stuff have no idea, because they've never been inside.  That would be taboo, like a woman going to the men's restroom to see what a urinal looks like.  Shocking!  🙄 

 

The reality, at least at the couple of places I've been...is that it looks like your average small-town bar inside.  There's no gatekeeper checking your "Gay ID card" at the door.  My husband is straight/cis, but doesn't mind going to the LGBTQ+ bar in the city with me.  The folks who go there are average people who just want a place to talk and share a beer. 

 

I noticed that one of the victims of the shooting was not LGBTQ+ herself, but had just been there to be with friends.  Richard Fierro is also straight/cis, and there to be with friends and a community he supports.  Clearly demonstrates that the venue is pretty normal, no matter what others might say.

This one is going to get messier before it is resolved in any direction.  The claim that the shooter was NB is a great way to muddy the waters and support the claims that LGBTQ and Allies are secret criminals who had a falling out with each other.  Deep and sick, deep and sick, but what else is hate?

I noticed the "nonbinary" claim as well.  Hard to say... but there's statements by people who knew the shooter, and apparently that is a recent invention, possibly just after arrest.  Supposedly the shooter made frequent use of anti-gay slurs in daily life, so that casts a bit of doubt on the claim.

We are going to be up against a conundrum here that we, in the community, honor and support the gender declaration and personal identification, and our Trans/NB leaders have indicated that we do so here even though the person may have previously denied the status.  Outside of the Trans / NB community this is going to be fuel from the people who do not understand the thought processes involved there. To them it is another indication of our insanity as a group.  A person who would kill members of a community while being under its umbrella is a mind twister beyond the comprehension of what I fear the jurors and community will be.  We cannot prove a negative so the shooter is what they self proclaim. 

 

It is very possible that if the claim of being NB is factual, that internalized fear and hatred of being NB by their community and church are at the root of the motive here.  Non Trans/NB people will not internalize the impact they had in creating that Transphobia in the shooter which made them homicidal toward others like them.  UGLY all over.

This person appears to be a mess anyway.

I have a hard time accepting the NB part, but like has been said, that's not my call.

The timing does seem a bit opportune though.

But it doesn't change what they did.

 

Trying to put the blame on the victims like this is beyond sleazy.  But it is in character for Carlson and the others.  They get off on doing things like this.

@VickySGV It might be difficult for some people to understand, but I think it is plausible. For example, most school shooters were part of their school's community. Some folks who shoot up a church are members of the congregation. And then there's family violence... being part of a group doesn't preclude violence within that group.  But that's not going to prevent people from making a politically easy explanation.

      That would also include race, I presume?  Would you really take America back to the 40's & 50's?   Carolyn Marie

      Surprised Utah was first to this party.  Probably won't be the last.

      Colorado, of course.  I totally disagree with the decision.  It will most likely go to the Supreme Court anyway.     Though it may affect me negatively, I support the ability to refuse service for any reason...even including my gender and appearance.  I don't like the idea of using the force of the state to support me, when I can take my money elsewhere.     That said, I don't get why a business would refuse a sale.  Cash spends, no matter who handled it last. Seems like a great step in the direction of going-out-of-business.

      @Mmindy Well, the discussion about the Keurig was a long time ago.  It wasn't THAT important, so I let it go since I'm rather spoiled in other ways.  I'm used to the Russian tea, since I lived with my GF before we joined our husband's family.  Not my favorite, but its ok.  When I moved in with GF years ago, I knew I was going to be eating a lot of Russian food for the rest of my life.... not to mention dealing with her dominant nature.     @heatherd You have definitely had a lot going on simultaneously.  I don't think I could handle two major legal issues at once.  I can only imagine the stress.  Hopefully everything will turn out well.

      Your cats are adorable @KathyLauren.  My girl has never been outside that I am aware of.  The pads of her paws are a nice soft pink with nary a mark on them.  She has no desire to go out.     Zulu is cute hiding among the papers!

      Thank you everyone!  Sharing your experience helped me decide.  I wound up getting 4 birth certificates.  I only had one of my old one.  I submitted my application and they took my money, so it's just a waiting game now.   Hugs, Lydia

      Same here.  After years of denial, I got the nerve to wear a skirt (privately) - just to feel what it was like.  The dam kinda broke.

      Things going good for me.Went to court on Thursday,I have full guardianship of the 14 year old girl I took in.Judge was impressed  with everything.It was good for us and my family told her welcome to the family.I had to testify in court on Tueday,the man that sexually assaulted me was charged with one count of sexual assault and a hate crime last week.I was brave testifying.He faces 35 years,his attorney tried plea deal again and the prosecutor said no.I am glad the prosecutor is being good to me.He is facing 35 years now due to a couple more on his long arrest record,Rape and domestic violence conviction he did to an ex wife of his.

      @mmindy. You sure do have a nice shop.  I had a Delta 14” bandsaw, table saw, jig saw, wood lathe, drill press all Delta cast iron except the table saw that was Sears. Lots of hand tools power and hand.  Thickness planner.  Woodworking was my hobby.  I made our entire bedroom set out of maple.  I made my daughter a memory chest for our youngest granddaughter after she died of cancer, all cherry plus some hand carving, and many more things over the years.  I get it!  Each has his priorities.     my son now has all those now.   yes my wife gets indoor decorating.  Our coffee maker is Keurig but it’s a combination machine.  Make a cup, make a pot.  It shares counter space with a hot water pot.   Willow

      Well, I think your KEURIG* should have equal space in one of the kitchens. As for the Zavarka? I would give it a fair chance to develop a taste for it.   @Willow we live in a ranch style house in a middle class neighborhood. When we built the house, I wanted the largest one story home, that would fit on the smallest lot. We knew it would be our forever home, and didn't want to climb stairs, or mow a hug yard. Suzie has decorating priorities in the house, and I can do anything I want in the 2 car garage. The only gas engines in the space I affectionately call my shop, are a Harley (year round) Spring and Summer the lawn mower, Winter the snow blower. Other than that it's a small metal fabrication/assembly area, a 36" wood lathe, bench top band saw, and full size drill press. I also have a table saw with out feed table, along side that is a combination swing arm chop saw.   I'm set,   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Having more rings on my trunk than most, I go back to the era of World War II, when much of the vocal music reflected the angst of couples and families separated by war and not knowing what the future held.   Even now, some of the Vera Lynn songs of that time resonate with my emotions.
