  1. “Each year in the U.S., thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, Two Spirit, queer, questioning and gender non-conforming (LGBT) people and people living with HIV come in contact with the criminal justice system and fall victim to miscarriages of justice,”


    LOL! Do these people have any idea how they sound? It's like something out of The Onion.

    How many "questioning" people fell victim to a miscarriage of justice in 2013? Are there statistics on this? I certainly hope they break it down so that we can compare African American questioning people with Asian American queers!

  2. What's a 2 spirit? Is that a hermaphrodite or someone with a split personality? Why am I being lumped in with groups that I have never even heard of and told that I am a part of them?

    I know you hate Trans people, but I do not. And your racist perspective is always right below the surface of your comments.

  5. @MOZ'S:

    You do realize that Egypt was part of the Roman Empire, right? Cultural cross-pollination between those particular Europeans and the Egyptians was going on for centuries. Cleopatra was Egyptian, Marc Anthony was Roman. Caesarion was the child of Julius Caesar by Cleopatra as well. There were Greeks and Romans who were devotees of Isis and Osiris. Egypt was conquered by Alexander the Great (hence the city of Alexandria) some three hundred years BC, and Egypt was a Roman province during the time of Caesar, thirty years BC. There weren't clear lines of cultural demarcation; the countries aren't that far apart.

  6. Chenoweth is a political conservative. I think she's creating work for herself and is no great Milk lover.
