Oh, Jeebus, he said what?

We found the Bathroom Bill of 2021:

Mississippi gov signs bill limiting transgender athletes

JACKSON, Miss. — Mississippi Republican Gov. Tate Reeves signed a bill Thursday to ban transgender athletes from competing on girls or women’s sports teams.

Mississippi is the first state this year to enact such a ban, after a federal court blocked an Idaho law last year. Mississippi’s Senate Bill 2536 is set to become law July 1, although a legal challenge is possible.

But here’s the kicker (so to speak):

Republican legislators who pushed the bill gave no evidence of any transgender athletes competing in Mississippi schools or universities.

 The GQP is legislating a solution for a problem that doesn’t exist. 

But some good news:

500+ Student Athletes to NCAA Leadership: Speak Out for Trans Athletes

March 10, 2021 (New York) — Today, more than 500 student-athletes sent a letter to NCAA President Mark Emmert and the NCAA Board of Governors calling for the institution to uphold its nondiscrimination policy and publicly refuse to host championships in states with bans against trans athletes. Please find the full student-athlete letter below, press release here and exclusive coverage in Sports Illustrated here.

The Yutes of Today are a lot better people than many of us Yutes of Yesterday.

    Not so: the GQP is trying to fix their imminent irrelevancy problem.

      The GQP lost the war on gay rights, they are losing the war on abortion as well as losing the war on financial competency & debts that they created, so it’s natural for them to become a regional political cult for confederates who fear & hate what they don’t understand.

    I think I liked them better when they were merely concerned about the sexual orientation of a piece of brown plastic…

    Tate Reeves – the oldest looking young guy/ youngest looking old guy is jumping on the “let’s scrabble around in your pants for safety’s sake” band wagon. Sports is just the most recent convenient cover for scrabbling around in underage pants.

    It’s a well known fact that Reeves’ parents named him “Taint” only because “Asshole” and “Dick” were already taken by his siblings.

    What’s that?

    Eh, close enough. The point stands.

    A couple of years ago during the bathroom bills Culture War, I attended an “Ask Me Anything” talk at the library about how to be an allie to the trans community. It really comes down to the basics of how to be a friend to anyone: listen, respect, support.

    I have taken to heart the Maya Angelou quote about believing people when they tell you who they are.

    Look, the entire state is populated by inept, sub-intelligent white trash bubbas. First you take away their racial privileges and now you’re attacking their gender privileges. What’s a bubba gonna do when he can’t get a plumb job based upon his gender and racial privileges?
