Kafkaesque Dumplandia

11 Nov

Here’s something I wrote to my representative and senators, about some of the latest insanity:

Penny Nance, Dump’s nominee for the Ambassador of—more like AGAINST—Women’s Issues is anti-feminist, anti-LGBTQA, and even leads a hate group, Concerned “Women” for “America.” She’s supported Dump’s so-called “religious freedom” order (to discriminate) and is extremely against legal abortion. The fact that misogynists like her were not aborted is a great misfortune. “She” is a Stupid White Male Trapped in a Woman’s Body, the extreme polar opposite of someone who should be ambassador of women’s issues. This misogynist, homophobe, and transphobe would be the Ambassador of Misogyny. The Ambassador of Bigotry. The Ambassador of Oppression. The Ambassador of Patriarchy.

We need to dismantle white male supremacy, not perpetuate or strengthen it.

See the Southern Poverty Law Center’s online article: “Trump Administration Taps Long-Time Anti-Feminist and Anti-Choice Activist for Global Women’s Issues Position.”

 

And here’s another letter I wrote to my rep and senators–two letters handwritten each in one day:

 

If Australia was inspired to make strict gun laws because of a shooting, then this backwards, barbaric, willfully ignorant, and white male supremacist country can follow suit. We must at the bare minimum ban assault weapons.

When I get around to writing a Utopian novel, it will be about a world in which there is no such thing as guns.

Furthermore, Whiteboyworld media needs to stop calling white male terrorists mentally ill individuals and call them terrorists. This is an extreme and deadly form of white male privilege. That’s another thing my Utopia won’t contain. I’m so fed up with these white male supremacists and their self-entitlement.

Oh, yeah, and that white male supremacist, Mike Pence, enjoys financial support from the NRA. So his hypocritical prayers for victims are beyond absurd.

More Dumplandia Bigotry

21 Sep

The overtly homophobic and transphobic Dump Administration is arguing at the Supreme Court that homophobic businesses should be allowed to deny service to LGBTQA people. Of course, if this were to pass and the bigot-businesses were open about their prejudice, then I for one would have no intention of being their customer.

Susan Warren wishes to pass the Equality Act, the polar opposite of what Dump and his minions are trying to do.

Homophobes are intimidated by people whose lifestyle is different from theirs, just as racists are intimidated by the same thing plus people who are a different skin tone than they are. So this really isn’t surprising. And we can’t forget that the Nazis targeted not only Jews but also homosexuals, Romany, and prostitutes.

Apparently, homophobes are so behind the times that they still say “gays” instead of “queer or genderqueer people” or “homosexuals, bisexuals, omnisexuals.” Of course, just the fact that they’re homophobes indicates that they’re out of touch with the times and with reality. And I don’t seriously expect them to embrace the terminology associated with queer studies; I suppose expecting them to say “queer rights” makes as much sense as expecting them to say “intersectionality” or “gender equality” in a respectful manner. There’s something weird and creepy about humanoids who are so arrogant, closed-minded, and bigoted that they’re against people who are not heterosexual and/or follow gender binary and probably don’t even think they have any right to exist or to be themselves.

But enough blogging; I need to write to my senators.

Latest Letters to Senators

19 Sep

Some days I write two or three letters to my senators and representative, first composing them in MS Word and then handwriting them in triplicate. So many issues.

Dear Senator,

Interior Secretary Zinke and Donald Dump wish to shrink the national parks, including in Oregon. That is so extremely not okay. This is desecration and, as usual, greed and sociopathy on their parts.

 

Dear Senator,

Donald Dump and his minions are attempting to pass Dumpcare, a.k.a. Uncare, a.k.a. Wealthcare again. We must keep fighting these attempts to take away our healthcare and Planned Parenthood, until Dump is no longer squatting in the White House. We need to protect Planned Parenthood and the ACA from this overtly misogynistic and classist narcissistic sociopath. Oh, yeah, and a neo-Nazi. Bernie Sanders has the right idea: we need universal healthcare—the real thing.

DACA

6 Sep

I seem to be posted a lot of political stuff lately. Here is the body of another letter to my senators and representative:

Ending DACA is a disastrous plan on so many levels. DACA beneficiaries contribute to this country as doctors and lawyers and college students, among other roles. They have lived in the United States, with their families, for most of their lives, and this is their home. I’ve been reading some of their stories online, and it makes no sense to willfully tear them from their lives.

By deporting them, Donald Dump and Jeff Sessions are telling the world that they are xenophobic and racist. Oh, yeah, Dump has already done that, in part by showing that he’s a Nazi sympathizer.

By deporting DACA beneficiaries, the US will lose $400 billion of its GDP. While Donald Dump and Jeff Sessions are obviously heartless monsters, Dump, at least, is a greedy and crass businessman who cares about the economy, if nothing else. Apparently his racism and xenophobia outrank even his obsession with making money. Oh, yeah, he doesn’t actually care about this nation’s economy, just his own bank accounts. The US economy doesn’t matter to him, as long as he and other billionaires remain insanely wealthy and get tax cuts.

This sociopath is gleefully ruining the lives of all DACA beneficiaries, and this gross injustice must be stopped.
