Suzan Eraslan posted to FB that "someone on Twitter who has studied oppressive regimes suggested, right after the election, to keep a list of abnormal and worrying events after a demagogue is elected, as a way to remind yourself that this isn't normal and to keep from being overwhelmed into acceptance by the onslaught of attacks on our rights."

She compiled a list and it's gone viral on FB over the past few hours, but here is the live doc on Google Drive which will be continually updated as new events transpire. And all events include a link to the source report.

I would also add Trump's plan to sign The First Amendment Defense Act as an event-to-watch-for, which would prohibit the federal government from taking "discriminatory action" against any business or person that discriminates against LGBTQ people. The act distinctly aims to protect the right of all entities to refuse service to LGBTQ people based on two sets of beliefs: "(1) marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman, or (2) sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage." (as reported by NBC News just before year's end).

These people baft me. How the **** can you sit there and claim your religion/beliefs is/are being attacked/persecuted when you go out of your ****ing way to make all these rules and regulations to disavow others and pay good money that COULD in fact be going towards greater causes (oh, you know... ****ing christian things?) instead of getting to choose what two people do in their private ****ing lives?

I'm going to archive the Google Doc to my server and various sneakernet drives each evening. I wouldn't expect Google to kill all access to the live doc, but with this Orwellian administration, I wouldn't chance it.

I'm concerned that you'd make such a sweeping hateful remark about 8 million people, (or, to be fair, 94,234 San Franciscans). Unless the entire LGBTQ populous showed up at your house and took a dump on your porch, you're not in a position to condemn an entire community.

You sound pretty elitist, entitled, and you negligently gave your dog to a total stranger. How are you not garbage?

I don't like the term allies. It threatens cis-unity.

innerspaceboy 01-25-2017 11:07 PM

And by the way, the "A+" represents asexuals and everyone else who is not cisgender or straight.

Lesbians triedv to kill me and gay dudes tried to rape me. I make mistakes left and right and upon reflection realize that I follow very closely the footsteps of the community currently discussed.
