AMERICAN 2020 CENSUS

LGBTQ Americans Won’t Be Counted in 2020 U.S. Census After All
by MARY EMILY O’HARA

LGBTQ advocacy groups are outraged after proposed questions regarding sexual orientation and gender identity were quickly removed Tuesday, March 28, from a just-released draft of the 2020 U.S. Census.

The U.S. Census Bureau, which is part of the Department of Commerce, is required to issue a list of categories it plans to track three years before the survey is conducted.

Advocacy groups have been campaigning for years to include questions about sexual orientation and gender identity, and were briefly elated when the 2020 Census draft was released. But hopes were dashed when the proposed addition suddenly disappeared, and a statement was issued by the Census bureau that called the LGBTQ inclusion a mistake.

Trae Crowder, the Liberal Redneck …. “Drumpf’s Republican Administration Revokes Trans Student Guidelines …. “!!

Drumpf/Republican Administration Revokes Trans Student Guidelines

By this time, I suspect, most of the country is aware of the decision made by the current administration.

This is  a thorny topic.

I’m aware that some aren’t capable of understanding the ripple effect after such a decision.

Trae Crowder does an awesome job in bringing this reality to the level of many who don’t get it.

Let him explain it better!

Trae Crowder, the Liberal Redneck, has something to say about how Drumpf is going out of his way to make life more difficult for transgender people

The states’ rights argument is particularly shitty in this case, because the crux of that argument is you can choose to live in a state that reflects your personal values, but if you’re a transgender teenager in Montgomery, you can’t just uproot and leave Alabama because the fat dip-shit two lockers down from you is afraid of the future.

That ain’t how it works!
As he suggests, right-wingers always have a new group to hate on, and they keep at it until it starts to hurt their own numbers. All the more reason to hammer home the fact that conservative Christianity is now synonymous with bigotry.

And Christians who are silent or supportive of them are complicit in the problem.

MISSION: UNDO AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE OF WHAT OBAMA DID 

Last year, while Barack Obama was president, the Education and Justice Departments issued the guidelines, saying among other things that transgender students should be called by their preferred names and pronouns, and have access to the restrooms, locker rooms, and other single-sex facilities that correspond with their gender identity.

The guidelines are nonbinding, but the Obama administration had warned that schools not following them could be found in violation of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits sex discrimination, and face a loss of federal funding.

We Will Resist

I go back in time.

Because of my life’s experiences, I use the year 1969 as a reference for the proud emergence of the LGBT community.

I’m well aware that it was there for a long time before 1969.

It wasn’t called that at the time.

The Stonewall Inn riots frame the history for me.

I was 19 years old in 1969, barely coming of age, and realizing that I was ‘different‘.

I did not have a name for it.

I learned about it as the years went by.

In view of the current Republican administration, many of the rights that those before me fought for, may be in jeopardy.

( … as many other causes/topics seem to be … )

In the past, today and always … these rainbow colors don’t run!

We refuse to go back into the closet!!

LGBT COMMUNITY AND EQUALITY

We have come so far.

I never imagined that, in my lifetime, marriage equality would be a fact.

President Obama confirmed it.

Hillary Clinton will continue it.

I have to believe.

My marriage is depending on it.

Honor the military service of LGBT people

Something to think about …. “Reached Tragic Milestone …. 2016 …. “!!

TRAGIC MILESTONE

We just counted the 200th unintentional child shooting of 2016

More than 80% of these shootings could have likely been prevented had the gun been stored responsibly.

Everytown is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. Gun violence touches every town in America.

For too long, change has been thwarted by the Washington gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives.

~But something is changing~

More than 1.5 million mayors, moms, cops, teachers, survivors, gun owners, and everyday Americans have come together to make their own communities safer.

Together, we are fighting for the changes that we know will save lives.

Everytown starts with you, and it starts in your town.

OKAY

“Doubt is a broken record that play inside my head.
I try to turn it down, but I can’t quite drown it out.
I’m tortured everyday, these never ending worries, Pulling on my sleeves.

So many times now I was supposed to tap out.
All the walls would fall around me.
All anybody would tell me, Is all that bad news how it’s gonna fall through.
But no matter what they say or what they say,
It’s gonna be, gonna be, OKAY! …. “

We at Rainbow Families would like to be here to help the coming out LGBTQ person remain close with their family.

We believe that being Gay is like handedness.

We are born right or left handed and we are born straight or gay (or sometimes in
need of a little extra flair).

God made each and everyone of us individually and God does not make mistakes.

We are all God’s
miracles just as he made us, individual, beautiful and loving.
