I recently said that I thought the the fundamentalist wackos would be coming out of the woodwork soon since they can see the righting on the wall: GLBT people will be afforded the same rights and responsibilities as other citizens in the near future.
Some of you might remember Ruth Jacobs from her public smack-down in DC. She tried to argue that gay men had a high HIV infection rate and therefore should not be allowed to marry. Watching her argument get pulled apart would be almost painful if it were not for the fact that the good doctor seems to be oblivious to her own ineptitude. Check it out:
Ruth is back. Now she’s blasting out crazy-looking emails to people warning that if transgender people are allowed to work, little girls will be raped:
First of all, as a website designer, this piece of junk makes my eyes hurt. It screams, “I’M NOT A PROFESSIONAL! Don’t listen to me! I might be A RAVING LUNATIC!“
Second of all, the substance of the argument is pure fiction… as in, it’s all a LIE.
Some might think after reading Ruth’s vapid remarks, “Wow! From the context, it sounds like those transgender people are already raping little girls.” However, if you are an intelligent person, you might think, “Wait, what? Did she actually come out and say that a child was raped by a transgender person?” If you asked yourself the second, please give yourself a gold star because, you used critical thinking!
Ruth lies. Worse, she’s pimping a tragic case of rape coupled with the fear of rape.
The rape case Ruth is pimping involves no transgender people at all. The poor woman was raped by a NON-transgender, heterosexual man.
Ruth, I’d like to say that I think your name is fitting since I can’t spell “Ruthless” without you. I don’t know that I’ve ever met someone who could read about the rape of a woman and then pimp her out like you did. I’ll think of you the next time I read about the death of another transgender person. Liars like you give people the fiction-based fuel they need to drive their hate far enough to actually kill.
