Massachusetts city gives polyamory same legal rights as married couples

And to Hell goes America in the proverbial handbasket.

Christine Rouselle reports for Catholic News Agency, July 2, 2020, that the city of Somerville, Massachusetts, has broadened its definition of domestic partnership to give polyamorous relationships the same rights as a married couple.

The original draft of the city ordinance specified that a domestic partnership was between two persons, which was changed to allow for polyamorous relationships.

The dictionary defines “polyamory” as “the practice or condition of participating simultaneously in more than one serious romantic or sexual relationship with the knowledge and consent of all partners.” In other words, a polyamorous person is one who has more than one sexual partner.

Somerville’s City Council passed the ordinance on June 25. Mayor Joseph Curtatone signed it into law on Monday, June 29. (Daily Mail)

The new ordinance means that Somerville employees will be able to extend health insurance benefits to more than one partner. It is unclear if private companies will also allow for employees in polyamorous domestic partenrships to share health insurance plans to their multiple partners.

Somerville city councilor J.T. (Jefferson Thomas) Scott, quoted in the New York Times, said that he believes this to be the first ordinance of its kind in the United States. In favor of recognizing polyamorous relationships, Scott said:

“People have been living in families that include more than two adults forever. Here in Somerville, families sometimes look like one man and one woman, but sometimes it looks like two people everyone on the block thinks are sisters because they’ve lived together forever, or sometimes it’s an aunt and an uncle, or an aunt and two uncles, raising two kids.”

Scott said that the new ordinance would legally recognize someone as having more than one domestic partner, regardless of the nature of that relationship: “It has a legal bearing, so when one of them is sick, they can both go to the hospital.”

Scott said he knew of at least two dozen people in Somerville who were engaged in polyamorous relationships, though he did not specify how many households they comprised. The city of Somerville has a population of about 80,000, and, until June, did not have any sort of domestic partnership ordinance.

City councilor Lance Davis, who drafted the domestic partnership ordinance, said: “I don’t think it’s the place of the government to tell people what is or is not a family. Defining families is something that historically we’ve gotten quite wrong as a society, and we ought not to continue to try and undertake to do so.”  Davis claims that constituents told him they were happy the city will be “legally recognizing and validating” the existence of polyamorous relationships.

Ryan Anderson, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation, told CNA that he was not surprised by the latest efforts to redefine marriage to include multiple people:

“Of course it was never going to stop with same-sex couples. Once you redefine marriage to eliminate the male-female component, what principle requires monogamy? [The former cultural norm of marriage between one man and one woman] was that only one man and one woman could unite as one flesh as husband and wife in the very same act that could produce new life, and then connect that new life with his or her own mother and father. Once the law and culture says the male-female aspect of marriage violates justice and equality, we haven’t ‘expanded’ marriage, we’ve fundamentally redefined what it is. And those redefinitions have no principled stopping point.

Former Rep. Katie Hill (D-CA) must be fuming.

Recall that the married Hill had to resign from the House of Representatives because it was revealed she had sex with female and male staffers.

Hill was merely being polyamorous. /Sarc

On June 29, 2020, the Somerville City Council voted to defund the city’s police by cutting $650,000 from the salaries line item. Councilor J. T. Scott had wanted a 60% reduction in the police’s FY21 budget. The source of this information is a news website called WickedLocal Somerville, I kid you not.

#BlackLivesMatter isn’t about racial justice. Here’s the proof

#BlackLivesMatter protests are not about racism, “racial justice” (whatever that means), “social justice” (whatever that means), anti-slavery, anti-Confederacy, or anti-“white supremacy” (whatever that means).

#BlackLivesMatter protests are chaos for chaos’ sake, destruction for destruction’s sake — like Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the devilish Joker, cackling with glee at the mayhem he wrought around him, in the 2008 Batman movie, The Dark Knight. Ledger’s portrayal of the demonic figure sent him to the dark side and took his life.

#BlackLivesMatter protests are acts of terrorism inflicted on the American people.

Here’s the definitive proof that #BlackLivesMatter is not about race or “racial justice”.

On Wednesday (July 1, 2020) night, #BlackLivesMatter “protesters” set fire to a statue of an elk in Portland, Oregon.

This video of the burning of the elk statue was tweeted by a “protester” who calls itself Tuck Woodstock (@tuckwoodstock), with this comment (Note: N.W.A. is a hip hop group):

Elk fire keeping me warm. N.W.A. playing in the background.

Tuck Woodstock, who has more than 13,000 Twitter followers, describes itself as:

host. Gender & equity educator (sylveon.co). Journalist reporting on PDX protests. Gay songs

. Biracial. They/them. DMs open.

U.S, Supreme Court Rules Against LGBTQ Discrimination in the Workplace

The U.S. Supreme Court today (June 15) ruled that employers may not discriminate against LGBTQ employees on account of their unconventional lifestyles. The 6-3 ruling appears to extend worker protections to a category that was specifically omitted in the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act. The majority decision was written by Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s first nominee to the court. He was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and the court’s four liberal justices. Associate Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh dissented.

Gorsuch wrote, “An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex. Congress adopted broad language making it illegal for an employer to rely on an employee’s sex when deciding to fire that employee. We do not hesitate to recognize today a necessary consequence of that legislative choice: An employer who fires an individual merely for being gay or transgender defies the law.”

Associate Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh vigorously dissented, saying the majority had not ruled on existing law, but actually had created new law by judicial fiat.

Alito, writing more than 100 pages in dissent for himself and Thomas, accused the court’s majority of writing legislation, not law.

“The question in these cases is not whether discrimination because of sexual orientation or gender identity should be outlawed,” Alito said. “The question is whether Congress did that in 1964. It indisputably did not.”

Writing separately, Kavanaugh said simply: “We are judges, not members of Congress. Instead of a hard-earned victory won through the democratic process, today’s victory is brought about by judicial dictate – judges latching on to a novel form of living literalism to rewrite ordinary meaning and remake American law,” he wrote. “Under the Constitution and laws of the United States, this court is the wrong body to change American law in that way.”

Federal appeals courts have been split on the question since 2017, when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit became the first to rule that gay men and lesbians should be covered by the decades-old federal civil rights law.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit ruled for Zarda in 2018, but the 11th Circuit, based in Atlanta, ruled against Bostock. The 6th Circuit, based in Cincinnati, ruled for Stephens.

Congress has debated the issue for decades but “repeatedly declined to pass bills adding sexual orientation to the list of protected traits” under the law, the Justice Department told the justices. The Democratic-controlled House passed the Equality Act last year, but the Republican-controlled Senate has not considered it.

Thank you, SCOTUS!

CNN’s Don Lemon thinks Trump is jealous of Obama because Michelle is better looking than Melania

The delusion is strong with this one.

Addressing President Trump, CNN reporter Don Lemon insinuates that Trump is a racist for disliking Obama and that Trump resents Obama because Obama’s wife is “better looking” than Trump’s wife, Melania.

With a smug look on his face, Lemon rhetorically asks:

“What is it about President Obama that really gets under your skin? Is it because he’s smarter than you, better educated, made it on his own — didn’t need daddy’s help — his wife is more accomplished, better looking? I don’t know? What is it about it? That he’s a black man and is accomplished and became president, and he punked you on the whole birth certificate thing. What is it about him? Just wonderin’.”

Hey, Lemon, if you think “Big Mike” Michelle is better looking than First Lady Melania, then you’re delusional.

Big Mike Obama (r)

But then, this is the same Don Lemon who, last August in the Hamptons, stuck his hand down his shorts, “vigorously” rubbed his penis, then shoved his penis-smelling fingers under a bartender’s nose.

Actually, since Lemon is openly homosexual, we can hardly expect him to find any woman attractive. In saying that “Big Mike” Michelle is “better looking” than Melania, Lemon was merely recognizing a fellow LGBT, as in transvestite.

What’s that swinging in Michelle Obama’s pants?

See “Michelle Obama is a man: See the junk moving in his pants

Apparently this is a “really touching question.”

At nine years old I played with my Barbie dolls and had no idea what “sexuality” was. But government education public indoctrination has solved that “problem.”

It’s complicated: The struggles of getting a haircut as a non-binary person

Video NSFW due to cursing at the very end.

I have a simple explanation for this non-binary person and their struggle to find a stylist to cut their hair: Businesses operate to serve the most customers possible in order to achieve maximum profit. Most have a limited capacity in achieving maximum profits if they choose to narrow their clientele based on validating a gender concept (or lack thereof).

Life WILL be tough out there, especially for a business owner. Maybe they will cut your hair if you don’t dictate how THEY choose to run THEIR business.

Better yet, get yourself a hair stylist/cutting education and start your own business that solely caters to individuals such as yourself. I’m sure that business model will be very profitable…

Of course: WA Democrats want to reduce criminal penalties for intentionally spreading HIV

This bill, HB 1551, was sponsored by originally sponsored by current Speaker of the House Democrat Laurie Jinkins and now sponsored by Democratic Rep. Eileen Cody. Jinkins is a homosexual and Cody has a background in nursing. The bill is entitled, “Modernizing the control of certain communicable diseases.”

According to MyNorthwest.com, intentionally infecting someone with HIV would be lowered from a felony first degree assault to a misdemeanor or gross misdemeanor, depending on the circumstances.

A man with HIV said, “Criminalizing us with a felony A for having a disease state … that’s not a banner I can get behind anymore, and frankly that doesn’t make people want to rush out and get engaged with public health.”

That’s a bit dramatic and incorrect. People with HIV weren’t criminals for merely having the disease, they were criminalized for INTENTIONALLY infecting another person with a potentially deadly disease.

Also in the bill? Allowing minors to get treatment for HIV without parental consent. I don’t know why this is in the bill as back in January, demorats passed a bill allowing teenagers to obtain “sensitive” health care services without parents’ knowledge or consent. Read that blog post here.

Read the whole MyNorthwest.com story about the HIV story here. The full text of HB 1551 is here.

Demorats are all about reducing personal responsibility (unless you own firearms) and stripping parents of their rights regarding the the health care of their children.

UK Teenager fined for shouting ‘is it a boy or is it a girl?’ at transgender police community support officer

If you are going to be a police officer, you need pretty thick skin. “Live PD” is proof of that. Alas, the UK has turned into a modern day “1984.”

From Yahoo: A teenager has been fined for abusing a transgender police community support officer by yelling: “Is it a boy or is it a girl?”

Declan Armstrong, 19, was ordered to pay £590 at Mold Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday after he was found guilty of making the comments following a trial.

PCSO Conner Freel

Rhian Jackson, prosecuting, said PCSO Connor Freel had been in uniform on foot patrol in Mold, north Wales, in October 2019 when he passed Armstrong, who was with a friend.

She told the court that Armstrong shouted “very loudly, “is it a boy or is it a girl?” and said that when Mr. Freel looked over, Armstrong made the comment loudly again.

Ms. Jackson said: “Due to his transgender, when Connor heard Declan say what he said, it left him feeling upset and embarrassed.”

She read out a statement from Mr. Freel, who was born female and transitioned, which went over his work to raise awareness of transphobic hate crime, including being part of a victim support campaign and television interviews.

He said he knew there could be repercussions by being in the public eye but had wanted to show vulnerable people that being transgender is not something to be hidden. However, he said that after this incident he was reluctant to patrol alone.

“To have something shouted at him that had such personal connotations whilst he was on his own in the middle of a public place, that was rather busy due to market day footfall, did leave him vulnerable, distressed and embarrassed,” Ms. Jackson said.

Armstrong, of Victory Court, Mold, was convicted of a public order offence after a trial but has continued to deny he made the comments, and his defence lawyer Gary Harvey said he “doesn’t hold any prejudice against anyone in society”.

The court was told that Armstrong is a carer for a man he considers his father, was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome and suffered from anxiety and depression.

Armstrong has also been given a 12-week curfew besides the £590 he has been ordered to pay.
