  1. America, what are you doing?? Every other country is trying so hard to fight coronavirus. But look at you.

    Trump is going to be very angry that his judge, Neil Gorsuch, made this ruling in favor of LGBTQ…
    Giving another HUGE win to the left.

    • Another one in trumps life who dares to speak against him who is heading for the sack.

      @Steve Dee Sorry to inform you, in America judges sit for life..unless they’re impeached….

      @The Blue Arrow Time and time again, the SCOTUS proves that the left is in the right and the right is in the wrong. Even going back to Brown vs the Board of Education… All 9 White Men voted and agreed that separate but equal was in fact not equal…..Roe vs Wade. 7 White men voted that a woman had the right to choose. Let this be a historical lesson. Judges, the good ones, are lawyers first and foremost, and if you look at the voting record of the SC, you’ll discover there are many different ways that the voting outcome falls… It isn’t Dems vs GOP… It’s a matter of how the judges read the Constitution.

    I have to admit I have difficulty fully understanding transgender people. I’m trying _I really am._

    • From that “I really am” I assume your acknowledgement that you feel that the moral norms that guide your life demand you, to treat transgender people like everyone. To do so you try to “feel” them as normal. Given that our feelings are difficult to control at best, and the least in terms of desires, that would be a huge step. Accepting is achievable without sharing the feelings of others. That doesn’t require you to change your heart. But there is a good chance, that this approach will open the hearts of others. After times of great discrimination, persecution of lost and destroyed lives, the burden of mounted up wounds makes people think that change means giving up everything. Yet little steps can do so much. I think all “big things” happen in the small! If 1933 in my home country Germany a coworker invited her Jewish colleague to her table in the lunch break, democracy happened between these two people for the duration of this lunch at this table, no matter how loud Mr. Hitler was yelling into his microphone.

      Nobody does explicitly that’s why there’s research to provide insight. And for what its worth heterosexual men and women don’t even understand each other.

      You can read about them in the bible. The book that has been 100% correct to date.

    • Love that you’re being honest! That’s good and necessary. What is it about trans people that you don’t understand?

    For a second there, I thought that massive crowd of protesters was a huge pile of gravel and then I realized that it was a crowd of protesters. Holy cow has the president screwed up lmao. I mean, if literally everyone else can do more in 20 days than the president is able to do in 3 years, that speaks volumes. Peace and prosperity be unto all those peaceful protesters who have fought hard for the right to be treated as equals. I’ll humbly and proudly accept all of you. You have my word.

    • Well Trump should be happy, he truly has drawn the largest crowd ever.

      @Jen 417 Lol yep. A crowd of people protesting his decisions. He should be proud for being a parasite.

    • @Jen 417 and the best part Jen, Trump *cannot fire him* like he does with *everyone else* who does not do his bidding….
      that’s the *salt being rubbed into the wound scenario that I like the best*

  7. I don’t get it. What happened to just leave people alone and let them live free part of america?

    • D MP Trump happened

    • Nobody truly cares about the Insanity of the pretend people … They fuss about for attention …

    • That has always been smoke and mirrors. You had to be one of the ‘right’ people to have that privilege

      Apparently simply existing is considered offensive to people. Out of sight out of mind never really took hold. My view is if you’re preoccupied with someone else’s orientation then its likely you are the thing you hate; projected masking self-hatred.

    • That went out the door when liberals started attacking Americans 2A rights

    This really is a huge deal. I am so happy that the SCOTUS represented all the people!!! Congratulations to all those who fought to have this protection.

    A good decision but a scandal it took so long. It should have been the job of Congress to solve this discrimination. I can only imagine what the right wing zealots are thinking right now. The same old “How can 9 unelected Judges decide what’s law and what isn’t.” Boo hoo…

    Does this anti discrimination ruling by the Supreme Court, also apply to the military??

  19. I have been an active ally for 20 years. The messages fell on deaf ears for so long. It is amazing the changes in recent years. Let the fight continue. Justice for all people <3 Laverne is a beautiful human being. <3

  20. Laverne Cox is so pretty!😍
