Hi I am Lost. In fact, I am pretty sure I made a wrong turn at Albuquerque. Anyone know the way to Cucamonga?

Stable Diffusion/ Midjourney are doing the same exact thing to commercial artists!

No concern about copyright or all the artists (who already are ripped off and exploited) who are going to lose not only their livelihood, but their dreams of living off their art!

Not only that but using an AI that used their own art to put them out of a job too!

Antisemitism Meets Transphobia

Just a reminder that bigots always find a way to include antisemitism in their hate:

Antisemitism Meets Transphobia
White nationalists and anti-trans feminists use the same conspiracies to target trans and Jewish folks.

BY BEN LORBER, HERON GREENESMITH APRIL 28, 2021 9:30 AM


We live in an age of conspiracy theories. In the wake of the January 6 insurrection in the U.S. Capitol, and with movements like QAnon on the rise, it’s clear that millions across the United States subscribe to theories that a diabolical cabal of elites is secretly controlling society, and that they are willing to take violent action against these imagined enemies.

These types of conspiracy theories have long been a cornerstone of antisemitism—which insists that this cabal is Jewish—and today, they’re seeping into antitransgender activism as well. Now, more than ever, antisemitism and transphobia are becoming deeply connected, making it vital for progressives to fight both together.

On the radical right, white nationalists are obsessed with fears of “white genocide”—the imagined fast-approaching biological extinction of the “white race”—and are convinced that Jewish activism is the prime mover of this existential threat. One of the main ways they believe Jews advance “white genocide”—in addition to engineering increased immigration of Black and brown people, orchestrating racial justice movements, controlling the government and giant corporations, using space lasers to start California wildfires, and other dastardly schemes—is by liberalizing societal attitudes around gender and sexuality in colleges and universities, media, and other cultural institutions.

In order to “secure the existence of our people and a future for white children,” as their slogan goes, white nationalists believe they must defend a status quo rooted in patriarchal violence—undergirded by cis-heteronormative gender roles, straight white nuclear families, a culture of warrior masculinity, and more—from Jews, who foster feminism, LGBTQ+ liberation movements, and multiculturalism to undermine this “natural order.” Movements for transgender justice, white nationalists believe, represent a key cultural front of Jewish-backed “white genocide.”

Scratch a transphobe and you will find an antisemite.

I fear this is the beginning of the end for most commercial art

What company is going to pay a concept artist when you can get the same exact thing plugging a prompt into a program for almost nothing?

What is worse is they did it by taking copyrighted art without permission and stuck it into these data sets under the cover of non-profits… intending to use them for profit along.

I just hope copyright laws catch up to these corporations and preserve careers of people just pursuing their dream!

Transgender Day of Remembrance

Today has been a day of Tragedy.

So let this be a thread of Remembrance for all the martyrs including those that were lost in Colorado Springs.



The BBC should be considered an Trans-antagonistic Hate News Site

Once upon a time the BBC was a liberal and progressive newsite that provided objective news and opinion.

However, since before JK Rowling was revealed to be a Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist, a group who often use the term "Gender Critical Feminist" as a euphenism, the UK media has becotrame increasing trans-antagonistic in thier coverage of trans people and our issues.

https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/09/uk/uk-trans-rights-gender-critical-media-intl-gbr-cmd/index.html


Nowhere is this more evident than at the BBC where the government funded news organization has taken steps that recently that have caused numerous LGBTQ employees to leave the company:

https://www.vice.com/en/article/n7nv97/lgbtq-employees-are-quitting-the-bbc-because-they-say-its-transphobic

At the center of the epicenter of this exodus is the decision to publish a trans-antagonistic article accusing transpeople of being abusers and predators trying to pressure lesbians into having sex with trans women. They do this using a poll with only 80 respondants from a trans-antagonistic source as evidence:

https://www.them.us/story/bbc-latest-transphobic-screed-is-a-mockery-of-journalism

Then to add fuel to the fire, one of the people interviewed by the article, Adult film actress Lily Cade, released a hate filled screed against trans people calling on the general public to commit violence and even lynch trans women:

https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2021/11/03/lily-cade-bbc-trans-transphobia/

The BBC responded not by taking the awful article down, but by just removing Ms Cade out of said article:

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/nov/04/bbc-changes-online-article-at-centre-of-transphobia-row

Of course the guardian isn't much better than the BBC... And all of this comes on the heals of the BBC leaving the Stonewall Diversity Champions Program out of fear of bias.

https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2021/11/10/bbc-stonewall-diversity-champions-programme/

A fear of bias that seems to come up if it in any way is in favor of Trans people and not against as the BBC has no issue defending their trans-antagonistic article:

https://www.them.us/story/bbc-trans-women-article-statement

I doubt they would use a poll of a 1000 Norweigns saying trans people are alright despite it being a better poll than the one they used:

https://trans-express.lgbt/post/667766588799336448/955-of-all-human-beings-think-trans-people#notes

My point being this, until they take steps to address and correct this bias, the BBC should be considered an anti-Trans news source.

Texas lawmakers proposed a bill to separate trans children from their families

Texas lawmakers proposed a bill to separate trans children from their families, labeling transgender care 'child abuse'

The Texas state legislature is attempting to pass a bill that would separate trans children from their families for providing them with gender-affirming care.

SB1646 would prohibit parents from "administering or supplying, or consenting to or assisting in the administering or supplying of puberty suppression prescription drug or cross-sex hormone to a child, other than an intersex child, for the purpose of gender transitioning or gender reassignment."

The bill would change the state's definition of child abuse to include parents allowing trans minors to access hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and puberty blockers, two types of treatment commonly prescribed to trans minors by medical professionals.

Advocates like Adri Perez, a policy and advocacy strategist for the ACLU of Texas, say the bill could cost trans children their lives if passed.

Schools closed after Oklahoma parents threaten to castrate transgender child

An entire school district has been closed after parents threatened a transgender girl with castration and a beating because she used the girls’ bathroom.

The horrific messages, which referred to 12-year-old Maddie as “it,” “this thing,” “half baked maggot” and “the transgender,” were posted on a Facebook group for parents of students in Achille, Oklahoma.

Earlier this year, an Indiana teacher who refused to use trans pupils’ chosen names resigned because his religious beliefs conflicted with his school’s policy.

The two schools in Achille will be closed until Wednesday (August 15) after Maddie – who usually goes to the staff bathroom – used a girls’ toilet once, on the first day of seventh grade.

House Candidate Who Chased Trans Woman From Restroom Is Primary Loser

House Candidate Who Chased Trans Woman From Restroom Is Primary Loser

Congressional candidate Jazmina Saavedra may have thought accosting a trans woman at a Los Angeles restaurant would win her votes, but it didn't quite pan out — the Republican came in third place in Tuesday's primary election.

Incumbent Democrat Nanette Barragan crushed her competition for California's 44th Congressional district, winning over 26,000 votes, or nearly 66 percent of the vote. In second place was a fellow Democrat who actually dropped out of the race months ago — Compton, Calif., mayor Aja Brown.

Then in third place was Trump-devotee Saavedra, who received about 4,000 votes or 10 percent of the vote (in fourth was Clueless star Stacey Dash, who also dropped out of the race before Tuesday's election). Saavedra, a Nicaraguan immigrant, was running on an anti-immigration/anti-transgender/anti-abortion platform.
