' Raleigh, NC has lost $3 million because of HB2' & other Tue midday news briefs


Raleigh Bureau: $3 Million Lost in LGBT Law Cancellations - So aside from the boycotts from businesses and entertainers like Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, etc, we see that the city of Raleigh has lost $3 million tourism dollars because of HB2. To be truthful, I don't like to hear about these money losses. It's sad that people in the state have to suffer because of the deliberate ignorance of their elected officials. But war is hell and the lgbt community certainly didn't start this one. 

Transgender Bathroom Bill Fails in Tennessee Legislature - Victory in Tennessee for now. But don't uncork the champagne. Be ready for this noxious bill to come up again. And be ready to defeat it again.  

Family Research Council blaming media for disastrous defenses of anti-lgbt laws - My post from last night which deserves repeating, particularly this part - "Lastly, I want to mention that talking point of painting those who oppose HB2 as hypocrites because they don't speak out against those (such as Bruce Springsteen, Paypal, etc.) who supposedly do business in countries which have awful human rights records against lgbts. FRC until just recently itself utilized Paypal to garner donations. The organization only began figuratively declaring war on Paypal after the organization boycotted NC. Also, how can FRC cry foul over any country's negative human rights record against lgbts, seeing that it once vouched support for Uganda's anti-lgbt laws."  

The North Carolina bathroom bill could trigger a health crisis among transgender youth, research shows - A main reason why these awful "bathroom bills" gets me angry. Don't $#@! with the children.

 Christian Attorney Trying To Marry His MacBook - Pathetically attempting to prove a nonexistent point.
