The Scope of the Problem

Bigotry = Invincible Ignorance plus Strong Opinionation.

A "Perfect Storm" of Bigotry on shock-jock radio.

Curtsy to Karen Savage

UPDATE
They tried to cover up the evidence by removing the relevant sections from their audio archive. Just so they could say that they were taken out of context, or only joking, or only using exaggeration and hyperbole to make a point, or even just saying that other people think this, not them. They used all these excuses during their non-apology apology, while accusing their critics of attempting to suppress their freedom of expression.

But copies have been kept. The segment starts at 3:30.


They have a perfect right to freely express these opinions - but not on their sponsors' dime.

Utterly disgusting and hard to listen to all the way through.

What we need is shock jock feminists calling misogynistic, transphobic ass****s like this out.

Those guys should thank the Goddess they live on the opposite coast from me.

Have transgendered people occurred in history before such medical procedures were developed? Where is the evidence?

Google "Cult of Cybele".
Then "Chevalier D'Eon".

Then look here.

I believe this article is a follow-up to that.

You are, of course, one of my heroes because you do work so tirelessly for community. Thank you Zoe.

Coming from someone who's really made the news as an effective activist - because of your rationality, erudition and compassion - that's high praise indeed.

Keep the compliments coming!

As for tirelessly - I'm actually a retread, so to speak :)

The guys (aka 'The Two Jerks') on this ...uh ... 'show' deserve everything thats coming their way

Dawn on the other hand should be applauded for attempting to put another side to the story.

Hope we dont lose sight of that ...

I don't know what those guys look like, but I had fantasies of punching them in the face while listening to this.
