Racism against Asian-Americans is at a pandemic high

There have been plenty of news stories about hate crimes against Asian-Americans. Stupid whites (and some Hispanics and blacks, too) have blamed them for Covid-19. They have nothing to do with it. And it’s getting worse. “More Americans are now blaming Asian Americans for Covid-19 than a[...]

Sorry you moved to a red state?

The radical right targets LGBQT youth suicide prevention

Conservatives, with Republican Party help, are waging all-out warfare against LGBQT people, including kids.

Homophobes get run out of town

Guerneville, pop. 4500, is a northern California ex-logging town that today lives on tourism, especially LGBQT visitors, whom it caters to. That made it a target of anti-gay protesters.

Is transgender sports a real problem?

No. It’s empty GOP “culture wars” demagoguery. GOP legislatures are falling over themselves passing laws to ban transgender youth from girls’ sports. But in Indiana, where a GOP governor vetoed such legislation, “at no point in the past 10 years had a trans girl sought [...]

Trans families flee Texas
