'GOP pushing Trump for 'license to discriminate' against lgbtq community' & other Tue. midday news briefs

Say hello to the future if some Congressional leaders can persuade Trump.

Republicans in Congress push for religious liberty executive order - If the religious right were smart, they wouldn't be pushing so hard for it. It's beginning to look like to me that the wish for "religious liberty" as they want it is a classic case of "be careful what you wish for because you might just get it." Once the repercussions come for secular businesses having license to discriminate against lgbtqs, there will be some VERY unhappy folks. And Trump is no fool, at least for now. The protests against his immigration nonsense would pale compared to the hell this sort of thing would unleash. Cause you know when it comes to expressions of outrage, the lgbtq community don't play.

'In the name of Jesus' the religious right have become Trump apologists & bootlickers - My post from last night which shows how low the supposed Christian right will stoop to kiss up to Trump so that he can give them what they want. See the post above.

Study: Trans and Cisgender Kids Aren’t That Different - Not a surprise. Children who are given love and support generally turn out okay.

Gay Men Sound Off On Misconceptions About ‘Femme’ And ‘Masc’ Stereotypes - This is some fascinating stuff. We do need to talk about images in our community.

This Is What Happened To Gay People In The Military Before The Ban Was Lifted - One complaint I have about my lgbtq community is how we should do more to remember our history . . .
