Progressives currently flipping out because Amy Coney Barrett used the phrase "sexual preference" instead of "sexual orientation".

But trans people and their supporters have been trying to rebrand "sexual orientation" as "genital preferences" for years, and progressives have not said one word about it.

"Sexual orientation" is an innate characteristic that must be respected... unless we're talking about bullying lesbians into sucking "girl-dick", in which case it's a "genital preference".

Progressives are disgusting hypocrites.

meh.  I haven't been over there for months and I have no idea what those boneheads are saying.  But if they are talking about this, it must mean they've been reading lesbian bloggers or gender-critical feminists, and I can't be mad about that. Maybe they'll learn something.

Not all progressives  ;)

#NotAllProgressives!   :P

Yes, yes, I know that not all progressives agree with everything the trans activists have to say.  But I never hear progressives push back against any of the stuff the trans activists are demanding, no matter how ridiculous.

I agree that people are still reluctant to break ranks with their teams...

Thursday was "International Lesbian Day".  No actual events were going on, because of the covid and also because this isn't really a thing. But there was some talk on the Twitter box about it so I decided to check that out.

From my observation, the conversation broke down more or less like this:

 -38% people posting fan-art of their favorite female anime characters kissing.
 -23% trans, non-binary, he/him people talking about how great it is to be a lesbian, such as:
 -19% woke people talking about how trans, non-binary, he/him lesbians are valid and loved.
 -14% people wondering why #InternationalLesbianDay is full of pictures of stubble-faced dudes
 -6% stuff actually pertaining to lesbians, including greetings from organizations like Human Rights Campaign and Stonewall and Mermaids, and publications like Diva and PinkNews and Autostraddle

Human Rights Campaign, Stonewall, Mermaids, Diva, Pinknews, Autostraddle to lesbians on #InternationalLesbianDay: "Happy International Lesbian Day!"

Human Rights Campaign, Stonewall, Mermaids, Diva, Pinknews, Autostraddle to lesbians on the other 364 days of the year: "If you're excluding trans people from your dating circle, that's transphobic. You need to overcome your genital preferences. You owe it to your trans sisters to be inclusive."

Ms. Kimmy.  My take is that gays/lesbians had their fight for many decades to be accepted, they've had their time in the celebration and spotlight.  Right now is the time for trans people.  Once it's normalized and we figure out all these complex issues, just like gay marriage and gay couples adoption etc., then everyone will be in the same spotlight again.  It's not that trans people matter more, it's that trans people matter too.  Just give them their 15 minutes or whatever to shine.  You can't have everyone in the band play a different guitar solo at the same time.  Sounds like sh*t lol.

Also, can we free the nipple already?  Why is it socially acceptable for men to walk around with shirts off but not women?

I see topless women out and about sometimes.  No big deal...
