    Roy Moore and Kim Davis should just give up already.  Hopefully we’ll get another court order that will finally force Kim Davis to either issue valid marriage licenses to everyone or resign and Roy Moore will be permanently disbarred. I really want those two losers to understand that they can’t get away with acting like their above the law. In the meantime, they’ve already lost, and they’re just at worst delaying the inevitable now.

    The whole security theatre is so outraging.  If it were effective, then you could understand some of what happens more, but it doesn’t.  And what the FUCK, way to be complete asses to that poor passenger.

    I actually got flagged on a hand swab on Wednesday night, flying out to Boston with my wife and 19 month old son (who I was carrying).  Ok, so you think I have explosives, despite travelling with my tiny child, ok, but then you ought to be doing due diligence.  They asked which stuff was mine of my and my wife (they didn’t swab her even), so I said “all of it.  We’re married, I helped pack all of this.”  They only checked half our stuff, and gave me the pat down.  It wasn’t embarrassing, because I’m a white cis-male, so I’m pretty privileged, but it was just a waste of everyone’s time.  If they actually thought I might have explosives, they should’ve swabbed all our stuff, and my wife and son; if they thought I didn’t, then why even bother?  I told you I touched all this stuff, but you are being lazy and don’t want to deal with it all?  Great.

    Meanwhile this bullshit theatre contributes to dehumanizing other peoples.  It’s such a waste, so infuriating.
