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.

1. Cable news anchor: Welcome to Punditspew! With me tonight is the new Republican Speaker of the House Mike Johnson.

Mike Johnson with flames shooting out of mouth: The 18th century is BACK! What is this "television" you say I'm on?

2. News anchor: Speaker Johnson, what do you think about the state of America?

Johnson: "Experts project that homosexual marriage is the dark harbinger of chaos and sexual anarchy that could doom even the strongest republic."

3. Anchor: And what is behind the epidemic of gun violence?

Johnson: "No-fault divorce laws!" "The sexual revolution!" "Radical feminism!" "Legalized abortion!"

"We're living in a completely amoral society."

4. Anchor: Now, about that attempt you made to overturn the 2020 election for Trump...

Johnson: "We live in a postmodern culture. Postmodernism is defined by the absence of truth."

But I will set things right!

"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.

And that includes 'a number of NHL players,' says Pride Tape’s co-founder, Dr. Kristopher Wells." #Hockey #NHL #Canada #LGBTQ

since the NY Times is doing it's thing again – quoting anti-trans groups to make gender-affirming care for trans youth seem dubious – I will re-up this essay, which includes over 100 peer-reviewed studies and reviews: #trans #transgender #LGBTQ #science

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.

No more Queer Menace for me. Call me... the RAINBOW DOOM!
#Queer #LGBTQ #Superman #Pride
A very strange Superman comic book cover, circa 1955, with Superman standing with a rainbow surrounding his waist in front of a glass Lois Lane and a fleeing crowd. Superman is exclaiming "Get back, everybody! I can't control the Rainbow Doom -- I've just turned Lois Lane to glass!"

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.

Online grifters, Republicans bureaucrats, and fascist thugs are doubling-down on their attacks against the #LGBTQ+ community and #Pride events.

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.

Latest cartoon on "contrarian" pundits who pretend to care about freedom of speech.

#media #education #college #speech #fascism #lgbtq #racism


2. Far-right activists meddling in academics, banning history and social science

Contrarian pundit guy - 'Ho hum.'

3. Books about gender, race, or containing the slightest hint of an unclothed human body banned from libraries


4. 'Don't say gay' laws enacted

Pundit filing nails, FILE FILE FILE

5. Elected officials being removed from statehouses for joining constituents in peaceful protest

Pundit sleeping in bed drooling on pillow

6. A conservative professor feels 'silenced' by diversity initiatives

Pundit tapping wildly on laptop keyboard - 'This is an outrage! I shall defend this brave man!'

Latest comic on everyday gun violence in America. For all the rhetoric around the Second Amendment invoking "liberty," guns are limiting our freedom.

#guns #lgbtq


1. Man and woman watching neighbor shoot beer cans in yard

'That neighbor's being loud.'

'Better not complain -- it isn't safe.'

2. 'Maybe I'll go play basketball.'

'Just don't let the ball roll into someone else's yard -- you might get shot.'

3. 'There's a drag show in town that's supposed to be good. You interested?'

'If it's not shut down by threats of violence.'

4. 'Hmm... we could visit my Aunt Enid.'

'Be careful you don't go up the wrong driveway.'

5. '(Sigh) maybe I'll just read some cartoons to take my mind off of guns.'

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!

Ben Barres was a trailblazing transgender neurobiologist who promoted equity & diversity.

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.

A few days ago, I tweeted a flyer about a protest against Jordan Peterson in Seattle. I was subsequently screenshotted by Andy Ngo and mass reported by his goons, resulting in my permanent suspension from twitter.

SO! Please help spread the news: Jordan Peterson is coming to town, and Twitter is censoring the opposition! The original flyers from my tweets are attached. These are autonomous actions.

The petition to remove #LGBT content from the uk curriculum now has 193,002 signatures. (It only needed 100k to be considered for debate in parliament, too)

The counter petition is rapidly gaining ground. It now has 52,837 signatures!

Pls sign if able. British citizens/UK residents have the *right* to sign, boost otherwise! 👇

#LGBTQ #TransRights

I've just discovered that there's a petition on the #UK government petitions website to remove #LGBT content from the curriculum, effectively resurrecting the horrendous Section 28 from the 1980s.

There is also a counter-petition. As of this morning, the remove petition has over 178,000 signatures, the counter-petition has just over 2,500 signatures.

Please sign the counter-petition.

It was never about protecting kids.

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.

This is bad.

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.

#ThisWeekInFacsism returns for a roundup of antifascist action and analysis!

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!

23 bills targeting trans people have been released in 14 states since the New Year.

I had to add several literally in the process of writing this as they keep coming out every hour.

A terrifying bill was just dropped in the late night hours in Oklahoma that would medically detransition all trans people up to age 26.

I called this would happen months ago - states are moving towards outright elimination.
