Then at 5:17 PM I received a missive titled: “HELP! Bus vandalized in NYC.” The bus was graffitied. Before I go any further, sophomoric pranks like this are just dumb. They only give these self-righteous clowns a chance to claim that they were victimized. Sure. These schmucks piss me off too but we already won. NOM is insolvent; marriage equality is the law of the land; and no matter what the Catholic Church says about trans folks it is contrary to the overwhelming consensus of medical science. So Mr. Brown is just pissing into the wind. He shouldn't get any help from us to shield himself from the back-splash.
According to Brown:
Our #FreeSpeechBus was just vandalized in New York City. This is a hate crime, and sadly the way that those who pretend to preach "tolerance" feel about opposing viewpoints.No idiot. That is not a hate crime. And this isn't about “opposing viewpoints” either. Claiming that trans people don't exist is as much a viewpoint as saying that gravity doesn't exist. Brown's views on trans people are a crass expression of bigotry. It's just religious-based drivel in an attempt to conform the world to ancient chronicles and the views of some pampered prelates who are theologians — not scientists and not clinicians. The same boobs claim that I am “objectively disordered.” Objectively disordered are priests having sex with 12-year-olds.
But we will not let this stop us. I know it is a lot to ask, but please mame an immediate emergency contribution to NOM to help us repair the damage and get the bus and its critical message back on the road.Maybe Brown did this himself. How was the bus left unattended with no one in it or around it?
Together we will stand up to the bullies and show them that the truth won't be silenced and that our free speech will not be abridged by criminal acts of hate.Truth? For Brown it is truth because he is a fundamentalist Catholic who ceded whatever critical thinking capability he ever had to the Church. For the rest of us, well we side with the published and peer reviewed medical literature regarding gender dysphoria and transgender people. Most of us refuse to be willfully ignorant. As for free speech, that pertains to impermissible government interference with speech.
And of course …
I know it is a lot to ask, but please mameWhat? No insurance? The holier-than-thou crowd has no problem bending the truth when it is convenient for them to do so. Brown thinks that his constituency is pretty stupid. Maybe he's right.
