I Love Bandcamp (even more) (again)

"This Friday, Stand With Bandcamp in Support of Trans Rights"
Bandcamp is a platform for artistic expression, and all manner of variance in experience and identity, including gender and sexuality, is welcome here. We support our LGBT+ users and staff, and we stand against any person or group that would see them further marginalized. This includes the current U.S. administration, and its recent capricious declaration that transgender troops will no longer be able to serve in the military. That this announcement was motivated in part to help fund the border wall exposes it as part of the administration’s cynical, discriminatory agenda.

In response, we will be donating 100% of our share of every sale on Friday, August 4th (from midnight to midnight Pacific Time) to the Transgender Law Center, a nonprofit organization that works tirelessly to change law, policy, and culture for the more equitable. TLC does critical policy advocacy and litigation on multiple fronts, fights for healthcare for trans veterans, defends incarcerated trans people from abuse in prisons and detention centers, supports trans immigrants, and helps trans youth tell their stories and build communities.

Visit Bandcamp for the complete story.

When I I last expressed my support for Bandcamp, some people shrieked in horror at the idea, so much so that I hid the comments section due to all of the inappropriate comments.

While you may not agree with my support of Bandcamp's support, please keep things civil.

Is there a special set of rights for transgenders? Are the normal laws and rights not good enough for them? Very confusing

I ask because if you do this would not be confusing in the least.

Quote: Is there a special set of rights for transgenders? Are the normal laws and rights not good enough for them? Very confusing

I think these questions fail to recognize the fact that there are groups of people in this country and throughout the world that are not treated with the same sensitivity and with the same regard as those in ruling power.

Human rights should extend to all humans. Dehumanization facilitates hatred and oppression.

Whenever we have an opportunity to make a decision that opposes hatred -- in other words, an opportunity to support equality, understanding, and humanity -- we should take that opportunity and run with it.

Even better when we get music out of it.
