LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS — Lest you think I’m hyping up the headline, let remind you trans people have been killed over lessor things than bathroom usage — and usually by people that don’t command a large audience as James Dobson does.
The gist: Dobson is founder of the trans-hate group Focus on the Family and has been creating chaos in the name of Jesus since 1977. He recently wrote a piece for his apparent in-house publication and it was picked up by at least one right-wing “news” site.
Using Obama’s recent call for trans equality as a set-up, Dobson makes a blatant emotional appeal: “If you are a dad, I pray you will protect your little girls from men . . .” then delivers a call to action: “If this had happened 100 years ago, someone might have been shot. Where is today’s manhood? God help us!”
Let me get try to get this straight Mr. Dobson. Are you whining about men today not having the guts to settle disputes with guns? Or is it you miss the days when men were REAL men, and solved things, again, with guns? Or is this just a call to action for men to up their manhood by shooting trans people in bathrooms with guns?
Most people have no need to figure out exactly what he’s saying, because they recognize words of a lunatic and just move on. Unfortunately, some of Dobson’s confused followers may find one of the above crystal clear in meaning and take action to relieve Dobson of his disappointment in the manhood of men today — a real threat for trans people.
