Mass. GOP Sends Hateful Mailer Smearing LGBT Friendly Dem


The Massachusetts Republican Party today sent out the above mailer smearing Democratic state rep. candidate Josh Cutler and his allies at MassEquality, which endorsed both him and a lawsuit that would have allowed state-funded reassignment surgery for a transgender inmate.

Apparently those two facts mean that Cutler is a "radical" or owes "these radicals" or something equally, nebulously frightening for the right.

  1. Kipp, most medical professionals agree that, when prescribed by doctors, surgical therapy for trans folks is medically necessary. The eighth amendment provides medically necessary treatment to prisoners, as has been proven in court. A prisoner forfeits their freedom of motion when they commit a crime, not their freedom to avoid torture or death from a treatable medical condition.

    Also, yes, trans people outside of prison deserve medical coverage of their dysphoria. That's a separate issue that is also very important, but not particularly related.

  2. Jason may be a bit off here, but his larger point is shared by many, many gay men I know. Not everyone thinks LGBTQILMNOP is the correct acronym for the gay community. His view is not bigoted even if he's not as articulate as he could be.

  3. DCinsider, Jason has in the past not only advocated against trans folk, but also effeminate gay men, lesbians, and pretty much anyone who isn't a hyper masculine gay man. The queer community gains strength via the inclusion of many groups, all of whom challenge the "normal" understanding of what it means to be a certain gender, whether that is who you are or who you're attracted to. I'm trans and lesbian, and I haven't met anyone IRL who was a member of the queer community but was against the inclusion of "other" groups with their particular brand. We're all minorities here, fighting against the system, and the most appropriate phrase I can think of is "a house divided..."

  4. @DCINSIDER, JASON is fairly articulate and very clear about his views. His analyses are fairly superficial and broad (and vile) but you get a pretty good idea of who this person is if you've read a lot of his comments.

    And to say he isn't bigoted is a bit of an understatement. Most of his comments here reveal a lot of his hatred, indifference, cruelty and an amazing lack of compassion for his fellow man. I honestly thought JASON was a fake and just trying push people's buttons but he isn't. He is one sad and pathetic individual. It really is best just to ignore JASON. He doesn't bring anything useful to most discussions.

    I wish Towleroad would block his awful comments. Amazon blocks hateful comments and no doubt if JASON posted vile hatred like he does here on Amazon, his comments wouldn't be online for very long.

    Towleroad should simply block JASON from commenting.
