Biden declares Easter as Transgender Day of Visibility

Apparently (the power of Google) it first started on March 31st 2009. I doubt that Biden, or his team, had anything to do with it then either.
Wonderful so it wasn't missed hindsight. I was having a hard time believing somehow this was purposeful or negligent. Thank you. 🙏

Though it is morbidly humorous that it occured durring this years Easter. 😂 😂 😂
 
I personally know a few transgender people.
One of them I knew had mental health issues and I think they would have benefited from talking things through with a mental health specialist before going through with their decision to transition.
Another one was fine mentally, they just didn't want to be a man any more.

Some people need help with their mental illness, others don't, but I don't think you can generalise that all transgender people are mentally ill.
I think those who want to change their gender should go through psychological examination, if it is found that they are thinking clearly they should be allowed to go ahead. I thought America prides itself on being the land of opportunity and of individual freedom? Should someone therefore not be allowed to make alterations to their body if they are of sound mind?
Honestly in the Tech industry we have a buch; though, I wouldn't claim they have any mental illness?

In fact it could just be bias on my side, but I feel like transgenders in STEM are typically the biggest "Nerds". Most of the top performers I know are transgender or on the LGBTQIA spec.

Though STEM attracts that kind of personality where people are highly introspective or want to understand something bigger than themselves and individuals who break boundries.
 
Well it isn't being covered that much by the media. In fact I wasn't really aware of this until it was posted here.

I do not live in an information bubble as I also read & subscribed to right wing media outlets because sometimes they're first to report on things. Both the right and left wing media have kind of just ignored this for the most part. I think I've only seen one article about it and it was from The New York Post.

Even my friends and some family weren't even aware of this until I brought it up jokingly. So seriously doubt this was meant for distraction purposes as it seems it has gone over most Americans heads.
Upon further review it is likely the continuation of division.
 
to suggest that Biden had anything do with it is moronic.
Note: emphasis mine

This is a completely unsubstantiated claim.
The President clearly has the authority to move suspend and temporary alter dates under numerous circumstances.

Biden is President

Therefore: Biden DOES have something to do with it.

To claim otherwise in a blanket statement is unwise, unreasonable and inaccurate.

He has Risen, looked around at Trans Day, said “Dad damn it, the old man was right. Let it burn.”

God lord you are on a roll!
“Apparently the power of Google” that is soooo damn damn funny, even now there are tears…..friggin hilarious!

The Christian religion has been around for approximately 2000 years. It has basically two observed holidays. Aside from a handful of seasonal Jewish holidays from the Old Testament.

I’m not upset about Biden (keyword) proclaiming March 31 as Transgender Awareness Day. No not upset, I’m embarrassed that my national leader would feel the need to proclaim it from the rooftops. While at the same time asking or telling children to not involve any Christian religious symbols into the annual White House Easter Egg hunt.

Now I don’t think much about the Easter Bunny. It’s a cultural add on to Christian tradition from centuries ago. Means nothing to me except it used to mean there was an abundance of chocolate around the house in the spring. But to request or prohibit participants from including their personal expressions of a fundamentally religious holiday ingrained into the core beliefs of the majority of Americans since their were Americans. Is insulting and I would dare to say particularly designed to not be particularly “inclusive”.

But back to “proclaiming” a day of visibility. Like I said I’m not upset, just embarrassed. That it just happened to be a year which coincides with Easter Weekend. Is either 1. stupid or 2. Was selected purposely to cause uproar and division.

While we’re on the issue of days of special recognition or observance. Exactly how many special days of observance, acknowledgment or visibility do we need to specify or create for sub-groups of people who make up for a small percentage of the population.
40-50?
At some point one would think those that encourage this would realize this redundancy and endless repetition would be counter productive. Or at the very least dilute the supposed intended purpose.

We are be-clowning ourselves!

Im here by requesting April 1 to be the national day of remembrance for Cis-WASP men.
 
Both of which are simple cultural appropriations of pagan holidays that predate Christianity (winter solstice and vernal equinox respectively).
So, if you read the Old Testament the story of Abraham was a story of his migration from Ur to the current day Israel. His formative understanding and refinement of their being only 1True God was likely from the Zoroaster religion that predated him.
One of the most insightful books in the Old Testament is Job. It’s not even clear he was Hebrew. Abraham when he reached what is today is Jerusalem. He stopped and paid homage to Melchizedek because he recognized him as someone who was already trying to follow the God of Creation.

Nothing in the Bible claims any historical origins peculiar to a certain race.
It is a story of spiritual journey amongst many different cultures in the Fertile Crescent. Then simply a putting it down in print so that this spiritual and ethical journey could be shared and repeated.
There’s no conspiracy theory about the Bible being the originator of all spiritual traditions. It does not make that claim.
It’s just a history of a many people groups coming together over a millennia. To share and expand their understanding of themselves in relation to each other. And to the creator of the universe.
It’s not complicated or conspiratorial unless you make it that way.
And it’s also not, as some would claim, to exclusivity that some claim it to be.
 
Biden could have moved it so it didn't land on Easter. He does have that power.
I suppose that he could in America (although not elsewhere) but that, I am sure, would have cause as much of a storm as not.

The whole thing feels like it is subject to the Streisand effect. If people weren't jumping up and down about it then almost no one (myself included) would have had any idea it was even happening.

And there is the truth of it. Supposedly it’s been around for 15 years coming and going in obscurity.
Till a politician decided to proclaim it
as special day. A day conceived by a single person that existed in obscurity for 15 years. Why is that? because it was an obscure irrelevant piece of fiction.
But hey! I know let’s make a public proclamation of it this year “because” it falls on Easter Weekend. And that of course will piss Christian’s off.
And the nation will be divided even more. Yeah that’s great leadership from an elder statesman.
 
Happy Easter guess my hard hitting wonderful joke got pulled off. i guess i shouldn't be as detailed.
