This is, so far, the best article I have seen written about the atrocity in Colorado.

May everyone who participated in this act, and I do mean everyone, never rest in peace again.

Star Wars is a series that helps to inspire hope among fans. Whether it is through Leia’s determination to lead or Padmé’s willingness to do what she thinks is right, the women of the Skywalker family have inspired children for decades, and we’re just talking about the Skywalkers!

In a week of horrible news, this is a really nice story.

Three guilty of murdering doctor who was tortured and left to die in gruesome homophobic attack — PinkNews | Latest lesbian, gay, bi and trans news | LGBT+ news

Two men and a teenage girl have been found guilty of killing Dr Gary Jenkins in a horrific homophobic attack at a Cardiff park last year. Jenkins, who was openly bisexual, was brutally beaten and left for dead by the trio in Bute Park in the early morning hours of 20 July 2021. The consultant…

Three guilty of murdering doctor who was tortured and left to die in gruesome homophobic attack — PinkNews | Latest lesbian, gay, bi and trans news | LGBT+ news

When I first heard about this story, and the frankly horrifying remarks from the prosecution, I assumed it had happened several decades ago and the murders only recently brought to justice due to advances in forensic technology.

Nope. It happened last year. I literally had to go back and check as I scrolled down. Seven months ago.

Sean Gunn <3

He got a lot of shit for this from the usual suspects (maybe… don’t click through to the whole thread), but I’m so proud of him for standing up to JKR and her constant slow drip of bigotry. It’s nice when actors you admire turn out to be good people.

#BBCcoverup

Remember the BBC’s anti-trans article from last week? It got even worse. The person quoted most prominently in the article, the one now known to be a rapist, it turns out the BBC probably knew about the accusations against her all along-

-and published anyway, for no reason other than to demonize trans women. Wait. It gets even worse from there, too. Yesterday Lily Cade published what can only be called a manifesto on her own blog, in which she called for the lynching (yes, really, this really happened) of prominent trans women including Caitlyn Jenner, Fallon Fox and the Wachowski Sisters. I’m led to believe at least some of the people she named know about it and have taken steps to protect themselves, but she was also threatening all trans women in the most revolting and violent terms, and-

-Well, the BBC didn’t report on it. Why would they? Not many media outlets did. Newsweek did, if you want to have a look and see what Cade said without having that bile injected directly into your eyeballs. But for the most part, in Britain, just total and complete silence.

This has just been one of the worst weeks I’ve ever witnessed for LGBTQIA people in the UK. I posted some of the information about Cade and the BBC on one of the forums I go to and I got this in response:

Which I’m posting here because it is a perfect snapshot of the UK’s attitude right now to the abuses going on under their nose.

An imagined conversation

(inspired by this comic)

PERSON A: I can’t believe other people are allowed to just, undergo a medical procedure that changes their life like that.

PERSON B: It’s against nature is what it is!

PERSON A: And they let minors do it! Even though I’ve read so much online about people who regretted it afterwards!

PERSON B: It’s so harmful to both the person AND society! I only vote for politicans who’re against it.

PERSON A: I totally believe in people having ownership over their own body but not when you’re like, denying your own gender!

PERSON B: Exactly! God gave women the ability to have children, that’s what I believe in above all!

PERSON A: Wow, it’s so nice to meet someone who feels the same way as me about transgender issues!

PERSON B: I thought we were talking about abortion.

In the UK today started with the news that the formerly inclusive Lush company had been donating to anti-trans charities, plus of course all this, and it ended with Elliot. It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster.
