Another Flop For the Trans Haters

Every time their crazy obsession gets put on the ballot, it loses.

Latest case: Andy Beshear in Kentucky.

The Rs whole assault on him was trans-panic-based. "He allows teenage girls to cut off their breasts!!! He poisons kids with hormones!!!"

And it flopped.

R2, so, what you're saying is that abortion matters to people more than picking on a minority that makes up .6% of the population?

Right-wingers in Kentucky spent millions on ads featuring right-wing anti-trans activist Riley Gaines. She also campaigned with woman beater Herschel Walker, who lost

I rarely pay attention to Kentucky, except when the jokes write themselves.

I hadn't realized that the governor was a Democrat.

Why is the state so backwards on everything else, but willing to elect a Democrate governor? I guess they really do hate black people more than Democrats.

Democrats won big because the Republican attacks on abortion are too extreme and most Americans don’t agree. Trans was not a factor this time because there were bigger issues, but don’t be fooled into thinking pro-trans isn’t a big drain for Democrats. Most people think trans is lunacy.

Most people are opposed to biological men in women’s sports, transitioning minors and intact men in women’s locker rooms/changing areas. Those issues weren’t big issues that people vote/voted on.

Abortion, economy, health care, and crime are universal issues. Trans issues are fringe and fringe issues for or against don’t decide elections.

Youngkin was the GOP’s latest anti trump hope for 2024 and he didn’t deliver.

by Anonymousreply 13November 8, 2023 10:31 PM

R13 Gay marriage was a fringe issue after Mass. legalized it in the '03 & it decided many elections until Obama came out for it while prez. Bush 2 even came out for a Con. amendment banning it in order to get a 2nd term in '04.

Also the Kentucky GOP guy for Gov. campaigned on those trans issues to get in office & we saw how that turned out for him in the Bluegrass state of all places LOL.

Some of the GOP in Virginia went after the trans in that state in order to get more power for Youngkin & we saw how that turned out. The trans democrat also was returned for another upcoming term.

The Penn. GOP made trans issues a part of their local school board elections & that also didn't turn out too well for them either based on what I read.

Honey, you are delusional.

Andy Beshear is the very popular Democratic governor of a very red state, and you think the reason he just won reelection is because the people of Kentucky wanted to send a message -- to no one in particular, mind you -- that minors' rights to puberty blockers and cross-sex surgery must be protected at all costs?

Yeah, I'm gonna need to see some exit polling on that, dipshit.

Probably has more to do with his support for abortion rights than any of the delusional, disordered nonsense you are babbling about.

[quote]Beshear’s victory is a testament to the strong personal brand he’s built in an increasingly Republican state. The son of a former governor, he sought to separate himself from national Democrats and focused heavily on state and local economic issues, defying political trends and heading into Tuesday’s elections as the slight favorite.

He actually won by distancing himself from the fringe politics dominating the Democratic party these days, including the far left's embrace of gender activism. The blueprint to win is to steer clear of the trans lobby and their attempts to erase gender from the equation.

Get a grip, OP. The only flop here is this poorly-reasoned post.

But then, the trans lobby does seem to love taking credit for everyone else's hard work, don't they?

This can’t be repeated enough. Besides trans, Democrats need to drop “defund the police” and “more Muslims” if they expect to win.

Beshear was visibly active after the floods and tornados. He got help to the people who needed it, and it arrived quickly. He returned to those areas many times to see the progress and talk to the people individually. He worked hard to build a new bridge to Cincinnati without charging a toll, as was initially planned. He succeeded.

It's not so much what he believed than what he did. Action got results. He was rewarded.

by Anonymousreply 21November 8, 2023 11:35 PM

Sorry R19 The bottom line is that if trans issues were the winning hand then the GOP Gov. guy would've been the next one sitting it the Gov. mansion.

He made it no secret signing anti-trans bills would be one of his top priorities in bill signing "media moments" of his first term (like Gov. Huckabeast & her child labor bill signing press moment) & the majority of voters in the Bluegrass state could not have cared less.

No new anti-trans GOP governor means no anti-trans bill signing moments for ya over the next couple of years.

by Anonymousreply 22November 8, 2023 11:44 PM

Sorry R22 but no one is going to win on allowing men to compete in women’s sports, or transitioning minors which is why democrats are avoiding those issues like the plague.

R14 how gay rights activists turned the issue around was to show that a gay marriage wasn’t an issue that would affect someone’s marriage or everyday life and were able to differentiate between the religious and legal parts of marriage.

Rejecting reality will never be a winning issue.

R34: your constant regurgitation of Christo-fascist talking points and your constant over exaggeration of "extreme TRA agendas" (whatever the fuck they are, probably just a figment of your imagination) are just one big pile of bullshit.

You keep making the mistake of thinking that if gay men and lesbians align themselves with a little, deeply closeted/severely mentally disturbed faggot like Mike Johnson, that he and people like him simply want to play nice with gay men and lesbians, and if only gay men and lesbians would work with a gutless, spineless little weasel like Johnson to help eliminate those pervy trans, he/they will leave gay people alone. I'm here to tell you couldn't be more wrong.

The election on Tuesday should tell you and your neo nazi "allies" something: keep your fucking nose of out peoples' private lives, regardless of whether they are women seeking abortions, trans parents/trans people seeking medical/psychological care, or gay/lesbians wanting marriage equality.

I seem to have blocked R34 (and with good reason, it seems).

If people don't see an issue as being terribly important, they usually find people burning with rage about it to be weird and off-putting and viewing their derangement with suspicion and apprehension. Telling parents how to raise their kids and dictating to people what medical procedures they can undergo strikes most normal people as wrong and not a thing we should be bothered with.

And as a side note, sweetie, your sentence construction is terrible (then they don't care not to oppose...what?).

R35/36 thanks for proving how sane you are. I’m guessing you spend most of your day making rape and death threats against “terfs” on Twitter and are planning another “queers for Palestine” rally.

R35/36 you’re delusional if you think most people are in favor of minors going through chemical or surgical transitions. Newsflash they aren’t. The same goes for males in sports.

If Joe Biden came out against minors transitioning or allowing trans women to compete in sports, he wouldn’t lose votes. Some loud noise by a few fringe activists but nothing of consequence.
