Quote from: Martin Van Buren Stan on May 03, 2022, 09:58:10 PMHave you got the full context does? I've barely followed Lineman's antics for a while, but I find it hard to believe he's unironically supporting Desantis. If I'm wrong then he's fallen a lot further than I ever thought possible
Quote from: Better Midlands on May 03, 2022, 10:25:33 PMRepeated from the old thread, my mistakeFrom this video here, talks about Desantis and then stumbles/says he'd vote for themEdit, thanks for the new thread and update @Poirots BigGarlickyCorpse
Quote from: Martin Van Buren Stan on May 03, 2022, 10:27:55 PMInteresting. I understand being a single issue voter but I guess this was before the Roe v Wade news. Unless he thinks you can vote for the make abortion illegal party, to defend women's rights
Quote from: Elfking on May 04, 2022, 02:59:55 AMDon't forget that you will never be able to ban abortion no matter how deeply conservative or religious your state/country is... all you will do is ban access to safe abortion.The way the Supreme Court have worded their statement makes it seem like this is very much the start. In the statement they directly attacked the decision allowing same-sex marriage and even interacial marriage as being issues. The Supreme court in America is intensely political and with the right pushing further away from the centre it is only a matter of time before more ACTUAL hard won rights come under attack.I saw someone on Twitter say that the attacks on trans people and women as evidence that feminism needs to be trans-inclusive and that they need to step up for each other. I couldn't agree more. The political attacks on trans people are just one part of a broader problem.I said this in a political Discord the other day but it is strange how the rhetoric towards things in this country is often terrible. There is no shortage of people ready to attack ANY minority for any reasons. Trans people, immigrants, BAME people, travellers... everyone is open to attack from the media and our conservative dominated politicians. Yet in terms of legislation they attempt to do very little and succeed in even less. There have been a few court cases about trans issues, one of which had a bad ruling that was then overturned on appeal, but for the most part the justice system has steadfastly refused to back down over minority rights.In America though it is completely different. I feel the rhetoric is less one-sided (perhaps a false impression from not living there) and yet there are anti-trans laws passing all over the place, they just basically took away abortion access for millions of women... They seem to have no problem passing the most horrid shit through their system as if they're Glinner after a particularly bad carbonara.The absolute politisation of things like judges in America continues to bewilder me. They are meant to serve the law, not a party or political ideal, and yet they more often than not split on party lines. There's plenty about the UK system that is fucked and needs to be fixed but I am so thankful our judges aren't so deeply politicised.

QuoteAbortion Support Network helps people who need to access safe abortions. We provide information on clinics, travel and accommodation, and provide financial assistance to help with costs for those who need it. We do this for women and pregnant people resident in Ireland, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, Malta, Gibraltar, Poland, Romania, Hungary, France, Spain, the Czech Republic and the other EU countries on a case-by-case basis.
Quote from: Zetetic on May 04, 2022, 07:59:56 AMSome of those countries make it relatively difficult to donate to political groups, from the outside which is why I linked to the Abortion Support Network:(Noting that the ASN works with groups in these countries, e.g. as part of Abortion without Borders.)
Quote from: JaDanketies on May 04, 2022, 08:41:44 AMHis ex is a TRA confirmed. On her insta she reblogged something by pro-trans Mara, scroll down Mara's feed and there's a picture about the UK exporting transphobia, check who liked it and his ex did.
Quote from: Zetetic on May 04, 2022, 07:40:14 AMTo echo something from the last thread - access to safe abortion remains a huge problem in the UK (Northern Ireland continues to commission no services - another example of how rights mean nothing without the ability to use them) and Europe (e.g. Poland, to pick a prominent example). If you want to help, beyond asking "why isn't Glinner talking about this?", consider donating to or otherwise supporting the Abortion Support Network.
Quote from: YouCantWriteTearsJimmy on May 04, 2022, 09:00:34 AMDon't bother her, but still ...kind of telling, no? I'm SO relieved to be honest that she's not a banana. (Also don't use her to attack BC, she's got nothing to do with BC's current anti transgender activism)
Quote from: The Guppy on May 04, 2022, 09:07:03 AMWe'll probably get sick of talking about him as he gets less and less relevant though.
Quote from: jobotic on May 04, 2022, 09:19:19 AMImplying that no one gives a shit unless it's to use as a stick to beat Linehan?
Quote from: JaDanketies on May 04, 2022, 09:26:16 AMiirc she and Graham were buddies with Brian Cox's terf-as-fuck wife. She might have even been terfy when they were together, there was a lot of speculation she was, although her brother said she wasn't. I don't think you could remain a terf if Graham was your ex regardless. Also this also indicates that his kids aren't likely to agree with him at all. So there's hope for even more barren loneliness when they're 18
Quote from: Zetetic on May 04, 2022, 09:30:37 AMI'm pretty sure trying to provide a readily-accessible alternative suggests that I believe that at least some people do give a shit beyond that; I wouldn't bother posting links to the ASN otherwise.
QuoteIf your support for access to safe abortion extends beyond rhetorical questions about troubled ex-funnyman Graham Linehan's behaviour, then you could consider donating to the ASN:https://www.asn.org.uk/
