Coca Cola -OK with persecution of LGBT people, and arresting people who support them.

Fallen Angel, thanks for updating on transgender issues.  Religion is clearly a wellspring of transphobia.

so, most of the transgender people i've met have been disowned by their families and told by their parents that they are not loved or even hated, denied jobs and even killed, often by suicide suicide and sometimes by trans-phobic people http://news.yahoo.com/jamaica-transgender-teen-murdered-mob-0704464..., sometimes transgender people especially women are shunned in the media, names like she-male and stuff have become popular but they are disrespectful to a lot of women, maybe not all but still. anyways, i think it's just that people don't understand, for instance someone told me once that it's okay to be gay but God made you male or female for a reason and many times transgender people are pressured into becoming effeminite gays or butch lesbians...ok im done, shoot :P

i think everyone should watch this to see what transgender people go through, they are human beings that have to suffer and stuff just like everybody else, most people (sometimes even within the lgbt community) see transpeople as freaks when really they just want to be treated as male and female, (a girl i know came out as a woman and when she did her gay boyfriend broke up with her and called her a freak) this especially relates to trans-women who because of certain types of media have been given names like he-she and shemale and other very degrading terms, like think about if  you were talking to a woman if she would like to be treated like this, but i think it's just because most people don't understand, so here goes with this video and i hope more people are for transgender rights as well ^_^

I slept through the Parade (I usually do...it's become too commercial and boring), BUT I wish I'd seen this float, and heard the cheers and applause.

Rachel Maddow - "It's freaking Utah" - Towleroad.

This is complex for me to watch and read -

1.  It's fantastic news.

2.  It's a federal judge, extrapolating from the US Supreme Court decision this year.  Not a state judge.  So this will go before the Supreme court, I imagine, in a few years.  Who knows what will happen?  I hate to say it, but Ginsberg won't live forever, and who knows who will appoint her replacement?

3.  Still, it's fantastic news.

4.  It's in context of some ominous news or repeated news  - Uganda passed their heinous law  - not Kill the Gays but almost as bad, and quite totalitarian, requiring people to report on people they think are gay.  And Russia being Russia, arresting and imprisoning people who appear to promote LGBT rights.

5.  In that Uganda and Russia (and some other places, Eastern Europe and Africa), Maddow describes the lobbying efforts by American evangelicals to persecute LGBT people.  That's  NOM, as she said, and especially Scott Lively, the more evil of the group.  Maggie Gallagher seems to have fallen out of the limelight, but her successor Brian Brown has fully taken on the job of spreading hate.
