    We Did It Again

    Yet again, it's our fault. How do we live with ourselves?

    According to Media Matters, right-wing media figures are having a fine old time pinning the Russian invasion of Ukraine on queers. If your head hurts trying to make the connection, I'll do it for you. Now that I've taken ibuprofen.

    President Joe Biden's repeal of the ban on trans soldiers, along with the military's diversity training and general "wokeness," have all combined to weaken American forces to the point where Russian President Vladimir Putin saw his chance to invade Russia's neighbor.

    On a Fox News show, Pete Hegseth claimed Americans have been "running around talking about genders and reparations," so "as a result, [Putin] thinks this is his moment to make an aggressive move."

    Fox contributor Lisa Boothe tweeted, "America is weak. No one is afraid of us with dementia man in the White House and our focus is flying pride flags around the world."

    Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire podcast said it was "not a coincidence that this has happened after Biden spent his first year in office focusing primarily on wokeness and intentionally making our military weaker and more feminine." He later added that Biden was attempting to “fill our military with lesbians who can’t do three pushups."

    I wouldn't want to be Walsh when some lesbian sergeant challenges him to a pushup contest.

    So thanks to integrating LGBTQ people into the military, American forces have been neutered, and Putin took advantage.

    As these rightist talking heads blame us for the invasion, Christian fundamentalists, our usual accusers, haven't joined in.

    Maybe they're just mad they didn't think of it first.

    Year One

    This week numerous news outlets have assessed the first year of Joe Biden's presidency. The reviews have been mixed. I feel pretty mixed about the first year of the Biden administration, too.

    In Donald Trump's first year, he banned Muslims, fired James Comey, called white nationalists "very fine people," feted Ted Nugent at the White House and played golf nearly 100 times.

    Joe Biden is God.

    A Prez and an Ally

    Last night, during his first address to a joint session of Congress, President Joe Biden said, “To all the transgender Americans watching at home, especially the young people who are so brave, I want you to know that your president has your back."

    The next LGBTQ person who tells me there's no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans will be in for a treat: watching my head explode. In rainbow colors.
