This week's comic: The things Mike Johnson has said are so over the top that I thought I might place him in the role of my flaming conservative character (hence the flames, in case anyone was wondering about that). It’s almost impossible to exaggerate this man’s theocratic worldview, so I tried to use actual quotes where I could.
"Since the NHL decided to disallow Pride symbols of any kind… the organization that makes Pride hockey tape… has been inundated with calls from people who want their rainbow tape.

Stunned that this isn't getting more attention in the local press, but I guess we do have a lot going down in the ATL at the moment

Whatever you do, do not use Soapbox for your #fediverse needs.
The creator and maintainer, Alex Gleason, of Soapbox (or Rebased as it was called) is anti-trans and was previously the head of engineering of the Trump-related social network (Truth Social).
He also worked on Poast, which was a social network for neo-nazis and a direct successor to Kiwi Farms.
Steer clear of it.

May I ask that you Boost this post so people can find us at https://mstdn.games ?
But we still need your help. We are really struggling with bills, and we need donations more than ever. Read our story here: https://gofund.me/a595af61
The State Duma of the Russian Federation passed a bill to "completely ban transgender transition".
On June 14, 2023, during the first reading of the bill on the "total ban on transgender transition," the Minister of Health noted that in addition to the legislative initiative under discussion, he was conducting research work for conversion therapy. This issue was raised by Anatoly Wasserman, who was concerned that people with a "different idea" of their gender role need to be psychologically and psychiatrically "brought to reality." The Minister replied that work is already being done in this direction on the instructions of the President, and a corresponding institute is being created where other "behavioral disorders" and forms of antisocial behavior will also be addressed.
We're happy to announce a new collection of resources for those looking to mobilize, push back, and defend their communities against these violent threats.
This includes original flyers, a printable handbook for organizers, materials to share on social media, and a list of report-backs from communities across so-called North America about how they organized to defend LGBTQ+ spaces from white supremacists and the far-Right.

I was on WUNC earlier today to chat about The #Science of Kissing on NPR’s Embodied.
It was a treat to meet the other guest, Kadar Small, a photographer, director & filmmaker behind the acclaimed photo series “PDA.” Kadar photographs moments of kissing & intimacy between Black & brown queer folks in public & at home, exploring what this kind of connection looks like through his work.
the fascist attorney general of Missouri has set up a tip site for complaints about gender transition, hope it doesn't get spammed by long, fake complaints over and over until he takes it down!

His pioneering research on glial cells changed science & he became the 1st #trans person admitted into the National Academies of Science.
Barres was also a strong advocate for women, early career scientists & the #LGBTQ+ community at a time when few people openly discussed gender identity.

Yesterday in Utah, Senator Escamilla called Republicans bluff by making them vote on banning teenage breast implants in an anti-trans healthcare ban.
All Republicans voted against it.

A new anti-trans bill in West Virginia would ban "transgender exposure to minors" as "obscene matter."
It would add to a law with a 5 year prison term, and to ALL laws around minors in WV.
It must not pass.

As far-Right and GOP attacks on the #LGBTQ community continue - new white supremacist and neo-fascist groups are forming out of the chaos of the post-J6 terrain.
We do a deep dive on these new groups - some of which are rejecting explicit calls for racial supremacy and embracing an authoritarian politics centered around religion - while others return to embracing the swastika - and some even are recuperating anarchist calls for 'mutual aid!'
Includes a roundup of recent antifascist resistance and much more!
I had to add several literally in the process of writing this as they keep coming out every hour.
Our community needs help.
