Here's an example of the kind of bigoted antediluvian anti-science anti-LGBTQ+ crapola the Texas Republican Party just adopted into their platform.

(Homosexuality and Gender Issues)
143. Homosexuality: Homosexuality is an abnormal lifestyle choice. We believe there should be no granting of special legal entitlements or creation of special status for homosexual behavior, regardless of state of origin, and we oppose any criminal or civil penalties against those who oppose homosexuality out of faith, conviction, or belief in traditional values. No one should be granted special legal status based on their LGBTQ+ identification.

[So are they saying it's legal to murder LGBTQ+ people? - Donna]

144. Gender Identity: We oppose all efforts to validate transgender identity. For the purpose of attempting to affirm a person age 21 or under if their perception is inconsistent with their biological sex, no medical practitioner or provider may engage in the following practices:
a. Intervene in any way to prevent natural progression of puberty.
b. Administer or provide opposite sex hormones.
c. Perform any surgery on healthy body parts of the underage person.

[Not even if the procedure is deemed necessary by a medical professional and approved by the child's parents? - Donna]

145. No Taxpayer Funding for Sex Change: We oppose the use of taxpayer funds for any type of medical gender dysphoria treatments or sex change operations and/or treatments. This includes but is not limited to military personnel as well as inmates in federal, state, or local prisons or jails. Inmates must be housed
according to their biological sex. No Federal, state, insurance, or probate monies may be allocated for the use of such treatment.

[IOW state-sanctioned discrimination based on solely on ones gender identity. - Donna]

146. Counseling Methods: Therapists, psychologists, and counselors licensed with the State of Texas shall not be forbidden or penalized by any licensing board for practicing Reintegrative Therapy or other counseling methods when counseling clients of any age with gender dysphoria or unwanted same-sex attraction.

[AKA conversion therapy, which has been repudiated by the medical community. Sounds fascist to me. - Donna]

    I wholeheartedly agree with the part of the GOP platform in which they recommend that Texas secede from the union.

    Interestingly, that gay Guy you've never heard of, devoted about a half hour of his show today to the Texas Convention.

    Clearly GOPs have people just as wacko, compared to the mainstream as AOC and the Squad.

  3. by Donna on June 20, 2022 4:48 pm
    What issue IYO has AOC and "The Squad" been whacko on?

  4. by HatetheSwamp on June 20, 2022 4:52 pm

    You think of AOC and the Squad as down the middle of the road moderates.

  5. by Donna on June 20, 2022 5:38 pm
    I'll take that as "I can't answer your question".

    How about that the palestine authority are not terrorists?

    How about the defund the police movement?
    'The criminal justice system in the U.S. is broken, fraught with institutional racism, over-policing, and lack of accountability. Rep. AOC is fighting to end mass incarceration by introducing and supporting legislation that would give formerly incarcerated individuals the right to vote, have equitable career opportunities, and access to resources like housing vouchers and food benefits. Rep. AOC also supports ending the racist war on drugs by legalizing marijuana and expunging all past convictions." AOC's website

    That's just two. And her gun rights are draconian and unconstitutional.

    You may believe in these. That's okay. But to the every day US Citizen, they are off the rail stoopid.

    Thanks, OD. Donna and I have done this dance. Good of you to cut in.

    And in the 1960's, the dems in AL, GA, AR, all put racist crap in theirs.

    What was interesting, is that Trump put very inclusive LGBTQ+++ in the platform when he was nominated. I was a tad stunned he would do this at the convention, but got a huge positive reaction from the members. At CPAC in Tampa this year, there were two different booths representing the community. There was a big positive response to that. As well as blacks, hispanics, and Asians. Dems have chosen to forget them in not only their platform, but their promises and money. Basically, they get a quick gloved handjob, and they're gone until the next election.

    Also, I didn't add this. I don't agree with them. It's a state's rights issue.
    I don't have to agree and by the time it gets up to the federal level, that will be non-existent.

    Oh. Didn't your company move there and didn't invite you to move with them?

  10. by HatetheSwamp on June 21, 2022 3:47 am


    I've been splaining to Donna that the GOPs have become the party of openness and inclusion. She just chafes.
