Opinion: "I’m Christian, unless you’re gay"

Today I want to write about something that has bothered me for the better part of a decade. Truth is, I’ve been trying to write it off and on for more than a year now, and the right words have been seemingly impossible to come by.
 Rogi Riverstone I think you allowed a right-wing Queer basher to publish an "opinion" piece in New Mexico Politics in which he completely mischaracterized and slandered Queer people. I think, when I used an inoffensive word to describe his arrogance and ignorance, you made an editorial decision to censor my comment, even though what I said was absolutely not harmful to him, whereas what he said about us could get us: fired, evicted, harassed, beaten, raped and murdered. I think an article, posted by you as editor of NMP, singling out ONE religion over all others & proposing it as an authoritative piece on Queer rights (ignoring scientific literature, other faith systems, social sciences, atheism, etc.) betrays a bias toward Christianity from you, as the editor. I also think we're supposed to have a firewall between church and state in this country, that the firewall has been horribly violated & abused and that we're plummeting into a Dark Ages theocracy that will destroy human progress. I think what one, heterosexual, cis-gendered man (a person of great privilege) thinks of Queer people, especially in the context of xianity, is completely irrelevant to the real needs of Queer people. And I think so-called "moderate" xians are at least as poisonous to social progress as the rabid Queer bashers, because they're trying to put a "kinder, gentler" veneer on the face of a genocidal, megalomaniac, abusive deity that would prefer to see most humans suffer eternal agony than live, right here, right now, in peace. And I certainly think New Mexico is steeped enough in ignorance, superstition, hatred and fear without having that reinforced. That's what I think.

Swedish Minister of Culture celebrating with "nig*er cake"
Publicerat den 17 april 2012 kl 07:16

STOCKHOLM (FRIA TIDER). A macabre scene with racist undertones took place on Saturday when Swedish minister of culture Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth attended a tax funded party for the Stockholm cultural elite. The self-proclaimed "anti-racist" Liljeroth declared the party officially started by slicing a piece of a cake depicting a stereotypical African woman.

Photos from the party at World Art Day have already been released on Facebook and are now going viral in social media.

The shocking photos show several established left-wing members of the Stockholm cultural elite watching and laughing as Minister of Culture Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth slices a cake depicting a black African woman with minstrel-esque face.

Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth was invited to open the festivities by performing a clitoridectomy on the cake, which she did by slicing off the part of the cake depicting female genitalia. She then proceeded to feed that part of the cake to a performance artist, done up in blackface, his head protruding through the table.

The body screams every time someone slices a piece.

The events that unfolded at the party stand in stark contrast to Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth's official political posititions. Publicly she advocates a strict hard-line approach against racism. When in 2010 the Swedish nationalist newspaper Nationell Idag managed to acquire enough subscribers to qualify for state-funded press subsidies she immediately took action to change the country's press subsidy laws.

- It is distasteful to support extremist newspapers, Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth was quoted as saying in the government publication Riksdag & Departement, promising measures to deprive newspapers with "racist" content of press subsidies.

- Although this is a question of freedom of expression, we dont want taxpayers' money to support this form of media, she further noted.

Why government funds should be used to pay for cakes such as the one served last weekend, has yet to be explained by Liljeroth.

The maimed "corpse" of an African woman has sparked an outcry in social media.

Mirror: Women's Media Center Calls Out "Beauty vs. Brains Survey"

CBS New York Uses Baseless Survey to Claim Women Would Choose Bigger Boobs Over Brains

Posted by Rachel Larris | April 13, 2012

Local news channels and network affiliates can run important stories about events and information pertinent to viewers. Or, like a New York affiliate of CBS, they can run the most hackneyed, sexist drivel we've seen in a while.

Check out the "report" from CBS New York, a local affiliate. The headline "Many Women Would Trade IQ Points For Bigger Breasts" (the video, broadcast on April 9, below must be seen to be believed.)

What is the basis for the story? The report says a "leading consumer website" released a survey that found 41 percent of 18 to 25 year old women would rather have larger breasts to more intelligence.

But the website in question turns out to be the link-bait generator and the "survey" is an "unscientific, online survey." Meaning they could have polled four women in their building and it would have been just as accurate. But considering we can't even find the original "survey" anymore we highly doubt there were even unscientific numbers to trust.

Women's Media Center staff called CBS 2 New York and asked where the idea for the piece came from. They cited a New York Post column by Andrea Peyser, who does, at the very end of her April 9 column, talk about CouponCodes4u's survey. But Peyser doesn't even mention it's a meaningless "survey" from a completely untrustworthy website and instead uses the so-called "results" to make herself feel superior to the supposed 41 percent of women who would trade bigger breasts for brains.

Shooter Hated Women

Why is this not classified as a hate crime? Because the victims are women?

From the very bottom of the story:
"My wife was afraid of him," he told the AP. "She was afraid he would do something like he did. She knew the other victims, and they talked about it. They were afraid that he was going to come back and do what he did."
Chibuko said he's angry with school officials for not doing more to protect the students.
"They were all living in fear. My wife told me the guy had been violent toward the school staff and had kicked the walls and stuff like that," he said. "So they knew. They should have had security in place."
Delariman said he noticed that Goh had problems, in particular, dealing with women in his predominantly female nursing classes.
"He can't stand women," Delariman said. "He said he never used to work with women, or deal with women in a work setting or a school setting."

Feminatheism: Pregnant "Murderers"

Outcry in America as pregnant women who lose babies face murder charges

The Guardian World News:

Rennie Gibbs is accused of murder, but the crime she is alleged to have committed does not sound like an ordinary killing. Yet she faces life in prison in Mississippi over the death of her unborn child. Gibbs became pregnant aged 15, but lost the baby in December 2006 in a stillbirth when she was 36 weeks into the pregnancy. When prosecutors discovered that she had a cocaine habit – though there is no evidence that drug abuse had anything to do with the baby's death – they charged her with the "depraved-heart murder" of her child, which carries a mandatory life sentence.

. . .

Bei Bei Shuai, 34, has spent the past three months in a prison cell in Indianapolis charged with murdering her baby. On 23 December she tried to commit suicide by taking rat poison after her boyfriend abandoned her.
Shuai was rushed to hospital and survived, but she was 33 weeks pregnant and her baby, to whom she gave birth a week after the suicide attempt and whom she called Angel, died after four days. In March Shuai was charged with murder and attempted foeticide and she has been in custody since without the offer of bail.

. . .

In Alabama at least 40 cases have been brought under the state's "chemical endangerment" law. Introduced in 2006, the statute was designed to protect children whose parents were cooking methamphetamine in the home and thus putting their children at risk from inhaling the fumes.

Amanda Kimbrough is one of the women who have been ensnared as a result of the law being applied in a wholly different way. During her pregnancy her foetus was diagnosed with possible Down's syndrome and doctors suggested she consider a termination, which Kimbrough declined as she is not in favour of abortion.
The baby was delivered by caesarean section prematurely in April 2008 and died 19 minutes after birth.
Six months later Kimbrough was arrested at home and charged with "chemical endangerment" of her unborn child on the grounds that she had taken drugs during the pregnancy – a claim she has denied.
"That shocked me, it really did," Kimbrough said. "I had lost a child, that was enough."
She now awaits an appeal ruling from the higher courts in Alabama, which if she loses will see her begin a 10-year sentence behind bars. "I'm just living one day at a time, looking after my three other kids," she said. "They say I'm a criminal, how do I answer that? I'm a good mother."

Mother charged in Caesarean row
BBC NEWS, The Americas

A US woman who allegedly ignored medical warnings to have a Caesarean section has been charged with murder after one of her twins was stillborn.
Melissa Ann Rowland, 28, showed "depraved indifference to human life", prosecutors in Salt Lake City said.
They said Ms Rowland refused the Caesarean because she did not want "her cosmetic appearance to be disfigured".
Ms Rowland, who is being held in jail on $250,000 bail, denies the charge. If convicted, she could face life in jail.
Rowland's 'omissions'
An autopsy found the baby boy died two days before its 13 January delivery.
I've never refused a C-section. I've already had two prior C-sections. Why would I say something like that?

Melissa Ann Rowland
Medics said it would have survived had Ms Rowland had a Caesarean between Christmas and 9 January - as her doctors urged her to do. The other twin was in stable condition.
A nurse at a city hospital said she heard Ms Rowland saying she left the hospital because doctors wanted to cut her open "from breast bone to pubic bone" and that this would "ruin her life", court documents say.
The documents also say Ms Rowland said she would rather "lose one of the babies than be cut like that".
"It was her (Ms Rowland's) omissions that caused the death of the child," Kent Morgan of the Salt Lake District Attorney's Office was quoted as saying by the Deseret Morning News newspaper.
"She was given three or four opportunities to get a C-section to save the baby. She continued to say no," Mr Morgan added.
In a jailhouse interview with KSL Newsradio 1160, Ms Rowland denied she had been advised to have a C-section with the twins.
"I've never refused a C-section. I've already had two prior C-sections. Why would I say something like that?" Ms Rowland said.
Unique case
In January, the Utah Supreme Court ruled that unborn children at all stages of development are covered under the state's criminal homicide statute. The law exempts the death of a foetus during an abortion.
The state law has been used to prosecute women who killed or harmed their unborn babies through their lifestyle, drinking or drugs.
But it has never been applied to prosecute a woman who failed to follow her doctor's advice, Marguerite Driessen, a law professor at Brigham Young University said.
"It's very troubling to have somebody come in and say we're going to charge this mother for murder because we don't like the choices she made," Prof Driessen said.
Ms Rowland's case has already triggered a heated debate across the country.

Pregnant Iowa Woman Arrested for Falling Down News:
Last month, after an upsetting phone conversation with her estranged husband, Ms. Taylor became light-headed and fell down a flight of stairs in her home.\ Paramedics rushed to the scene and ultimately declared her healthy. However, since she was pregnant with her third child at the time, Taylor thought it would be best to be seen at the local ER to make sure her fetus was unharmed.
. . .

Alone, distraught, and frightened, Taylor confided in the nurse treating her that she hadn't always been sure she'd wanted this baby, now that she was single and unemployed. She'd considered both adoption and abortion before ultimately deciding to keep the child. The nurse then summoned a doctor, who questioned her further about her thoughts on ending the pregnancy. Next thing Taylor knew, she was being arrested for attempted feticide. Apparently the nurse and doctor thought that Taylor threw herself down the stairs on purpose.

According to Iowa state law, attempted feticide is an trying "to intentionally terminate a human pregnancy, with the knowledge and voluntary consent of the pregnant person, after the end of the second trimester of the pregnancy." At least 37 states have similar laws. Taylor spent two days in jail before being released. That's right, a pregnant woman was jailed for admitting to thinking about an abortion at some point early in her pregnancy and then having the audacity to fall down some stairs a couple of months later. Please tell me you find this as horrifying as I do.

The District Attorney -- after three weeks of investigation -- eventually declined to prosecute Taylor. Before you get too happy, keep in mind that this decision was made, not because the arrest was travesty to begin with, but because it came to light that Taylor was late in her second trimester when she fell, not early in her third as the hospital staff had thought
. . .

Christine Taylor came to them emotionally vulnerable in order to seek help for her unborn child. She thought she was in a safe place talking to professionals in whom she could confide. Oops, her bad. As Robert Rigg, professor at the Drake University Law School, said, "How in the heck did the police get a statement made by a patient to a medical person during the course of treatment?
