Remember that town in Alabama we told you about last week, Oxford, where the city council got so mad about Target letting people poop any old place they want, and UNANIMOUSLY passed a "No Doo Doos For Transgenders" ordinance? Remember how they misspelled all the words in it, because they are dumb Alabamians? Remember how they even included "GO TO JAIL" as a consequence for violating the ordinance?

Anyway, they repealed it:

Three councilors voted to repeal the law and two voted in opposition to the repeal. [...]

After the agenda item and ordinance was read aloud, Council President Steven Waits announced that the mayor has not yet signed the ordinance due to health issues. He then opened up a question and comment period.

Councilor Charlotte Hubbard read several reasons why the ordinance should be repealed. This includes concerns from the city attorney over Title IX violations.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]OH THAT OLD THING AGAIN! It keeps coming up, how these ordinances are against federal law. We feel like we have said this thirty-eleventy times in the past few months, and it's because WE HAVE. The terrible Obama administration has just 'splained very rudely to North Carolina that, hey, fuckers, YOUR trans bathroom law is against THE law and we ain't wanna hear none ya shit-squawkin' about YOUR WIVES AND DAUGHTERS in the bathrooms. Grow the fuck up, fools.

Oxford also faced an enormous backlash from its gigantic business community:

On Monday, the Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) Board of Presidents voted to move their 2016 softball championship tournament from Choccolocco Park in Oxford to the Jacksonville State University campus "due to the discriminatory intent" of Oxford's bathroom ordinance. [...]

The board has reversed this decision now that the council has repealed the bathroom ordinance.

That's right, NO SOFTBALL IN CHOCCOLOCCO PARK UNTIL EVERYBODY CAN MAKE DOO-DOO-BERRIES IN PEACE. Hey, it's not on the level of Bruce Springsteen canceling a concert, but it seems to have worked.

[wonkbar]<a href=""></a>[/wonkbar]It continues to be so weird how, when it comes to the prospect of losing sweet CA$H from the government and from private business, all of a sudden people's terrible fears of Target Transgenders spying on them in the bathroom are whisked away. It happened in Tennessee! It happened in South Dakota!

And now it's happened in tiny Oxford, Alabama. Enjoy your new transgender overlords, you MORANS!

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."

'Baby Geniuses' star Jon Voight took to Twitter early this morning to proclaim his undying love for Donald Trump, probably because there is no one left in his life who will listen to him talk about this, or anything else, in person. In this video rant, Voight encouraged members of the Republican Party, whom he apparently thinks are the only real citizens of the United States, to stand by Donald Trump and "acknowledge the truth" that he is the best President since Abraham Lincoln.

Part ONE:

People of the Republican Party, I know you will agree with me when I say our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy. For he's battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I've said this once and I'll say this again. That our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers, and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I'm here today to acknowledge the truth, and I'm here today to tell you my fellow Americans that our country…

Oh no, not our absurd words of destruction!

Part DEUX:

is stronger, safer, and with more jobs because our President has made his every move correct. Don't be fooled by the political left, because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president. Let us stand up for this truth, that President Trump is the greatest president since President Lincoln.

Does Jon Voight not know there have been... other presidents? Can he name them? Because really, it does not sound like it. Does he also not know that a very big chunk of the Republican Party actually does not care very much for Abraham Lincoln? Namely those defenders of Confederate statues that Trump called "very fine people?" Also, did he intentionally diss their beloved Ronald Reagan?

Who can know? Who can even tell what he is trying to say or why he is trying to say it. He doesn't appear to have tweeted much since 2016, so I'm guessing whoever's job it was to keep him from tanking his career quit. Either that... or after filming the seventh season of Ray Donovan, he found out it's going to be canceled or his character is getting killed off or something and he is now free to be a jackass? I don't know, I haven't watched the show, although my parents are very into it and mad that I haven't watched it. Literally all I know about it is that it has something to do with Boston, because they keep mentioning that to me like it's a selling point.

It seems useless at this point to note that the people who scream their faces off about how bad it is for Hollywood celebs to support liberal causes, and how they should keep their politics to themselves, etc. etc. make a way bigger deal than normal people do whenever a Big Time Hollywood Celebrity like Jon Voight or, uh, Scott Baio, supports their cause. Mostly because they're the only ones who have elected a reality TV star and the star of Bedtime for Bonzo (who by the way, also once practically ruined a perfectly good Bette Davis movie with his bad acting. Which is not to say that Dark Victory is not fantastic and probably the best thing to watch if you want to sob your face off, but he was very bad in it.) to run the country.

But we might as well do that anyway, because it actually never stops being funny.
