'Brutal assessment of gay Trump voters' & other Thur. midday news briefs


Understanding Homonationalism: Why Are There Gay People Supporting Trump? - BRUTAL assessment of gay Trump supporters:

Put another way, homonationalists are largely white gay people blinded by privilege and actively working against the well-being of the most vulnerable members of our community. These individuals have received their portion of the proverbial pie through recent LGBT victories ― access to rights and capital ― and don’t feel the need to fight against the ideologies of racism, sexism, ableism, classism, xenophobia, transphobia or Islamophobia that are institutionally ingrained into the fabric of America. Homonationalists believe embodying their freedom means working to violate or deactivate the rights of others. Homonationalists are pawns of their own erasure. 
Pence’s penchant for dodging questions isn’t poise. It’s how he defended anti-LGBT discrimination - Don't be upset that Pence wasn't asked any questions about his anti-lgbt history during the recent VP debate. If he truly becomes the "front runner" in the next presidential election, that is the time we ROAST him.

I'm sorry, but as someone who has to live under the laws he's enacted I am disappointing that he wasn't called out for them. Unlike other VP candidates, Trump has suggested that Pence would be doing the real work. His record does matter.
