Why Autocrats Fear LGBT Rights
New York Review of Books
. . . Many commentators immediately branded this move [banning transsexuals from the military] a distraction, an attempt to draw attention away from the Russian-conspiracy story, the health care battle, or anything else they deem more important than the president’s declaration that a group of Americans are second-class citizens. This is not only a grievous insult to transgender people but a basic failure to understand the emotional logic of Trumpism. This is a logic that Trump shares with most modern-day strongmen, and it was this logic that made his attack on LGBT rights so predictable, even while he was literally draping a rainbow flag over his body last year. . . . queer rights are anything but a distraction: they are a frontier, sometimes the frontier in the global turn toward autocracy. . . . in Russia queer people make an ideal target for government propaganda because the very idea of them serves as a convenient stand-in for an entire era of liberalization that is now shunned. . . . This is no distraction: it is the very heart of Trumpism.
I found this alternate version of "Masculine Women! Feminine Men!" which I like better. It has some additional words and is sung a bit slower.
Thanks, Carl, for sharing "Masculine Women! Feminine Men!" The Queer Music Heritage site has lots of versions, and even sheet music.
Thanks also for "In a Heartbeat"! Damn onions...

tRump himself! And Pence, and Ryan, and the rest of the Rethuglicans whose voter suppression succeeded so well!
Thanks for posting, Carl, I like it!
Joan, thanks for posting the Al Jazeera voting rights timeline. Very interesting! I didn't know there were so many nuanced changes back and forth through the years.
