Dark Time For The Rebellion: Marvel Fires Chuck Wendig For Having Opinions

But the opinions were vulgar and negative!

Star Wars author Chuck Wendig announced Friday that Marvel had abruptly yanked him from a Darth Vader comic and an unannounced Star Wars book. Marvel confirmed severing ties with Wendig but wouldn't comment further on why. However, if you follow Wendig on Twitter, it's not much of a mystery.

Wendig was temporarily suspended from the platform this week for.... well, it's unclear. Wendig claims Twitter was cagey on this point: "They didn't ask me to delete any tweets, they didn't give me a sense of what rule I broke, or when, or what offending tweet had caused the world such pain." Twitter likes to occasionally put users in their own Nancy Drew novel: "The Secret of the Naughty Tweet." Wendig connected some dots and figured the suspension was related to a series of tweets he wrote last weekend related to the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Betsy DeVos Defends Civil Rights Of Bigots Who Want To Discriminate Against Trans Kids

It's the trans kids creating the hostile environment, we guess.

Ever since she purchased her Cabinet position from the crony capitalism section on eBay, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has dedicated herself to freeing children from the tyranny of an education. She recently tried to liberate $1 billion from after-school and college-prep programs for poor kids and deliver the bounty to charter schools and private school vouchers, but she had to settle for just $400 million like some common Debbie Ocean who hates public education. These temporary setbacks, though, don't mean trans students and their unreasonable "treat us like people" demands have escaped her attention.

Transgender students briefly enjoyed protections under Title IX -- the federal law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in federally funded education programs. This was back in May of 2016 ... before the dark times ... before the Trump administration, which rescinded the Obama directive that permitted trans students to use the bathrooms that fit with their gender identity. Students who had to contend with hostile school administrators soon discovered that DeVos's Education department did not have their back. DeVos herself issued only vague statements of support when otherwise dismissing a trans student's complaints.

"[E]ach school has a responsibility to protect every student in America and ensure that they have the freedom to learn and thrive in a safe environment. Some states and school districts have found adopted policies and practices that protect all students, including transgender students."

You noticed the "all students" in there, didn't you? Yeah, DeVos is now turning this all around to protect cisgender students from the folks who force good Christians to learn the word "cisgender." Her department is currently investigating a complaint that alleges a 5-year-old girl was assaulted in the girl's bathroom at Oakhurst Elementary in Decatur, Georgia, by a student who identified as "gender fluid."

6 Reasons Mel Gibson Should Go Away Forever

Go back to professional beard farming, Mel.

If you fear #MeToo has gone "too far" in holding men accountable for their voluntary actions, you can take comfort in the official comeback of 1980s star with 1880s sensibilities Mel Gibson. The 63-year-old is set to write and direct the remake no one was asking for of the testosterone-drenched classic The Wild Bunch. Do you struggle to come up with names of 63-year-old women who are peers of Gibson and have similar sweet filmmaking deals but also lack his considerable baggage? Hey, me too!

Here are some reasons I guarantee are more concise than Braveheart for why Gibson does not deserve a return to the silver screen.

Gay Hatin' Cake Nazi Hates Transgender Cakes Too, What A Big Shock

Maybe he should just get out of the cake business.

Some folks just can't be happy. Take Jack Phillips. He runs the boldly titled Masterpiece Cakeshop (hey, I'll be the judge of that ... if he'd actually bake a cake for me) in suburban Denver. A gay couple wanted him to mix flour and eggs together for them in celebration of their legal marital union, and he refused because this violated his religious freedom to believe gays are gross. The case went all the way to the Trump-tainted Supreme Court, which ruled in favor of Phillips on very specific and narrow legal grounds that I won't get into here because do I look like a Five Dollar Feminist?

Anyway, Phillips prevailed in the bigoted TV movie that would air on an evil Lifetime network. Donald Trump, who apparently believes Phillips's name is "Baker," praised the court decision. All was well, right? Wrong! That's what a gay atheist would think. Phillips is still subject to the outrageous persecution of people who want to be treated like human beings!

The Denver Post reports that Phillips filed suit against Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and other state officials Tuesday. The drama queen claims the state has renewed its "crusade" against him because he's just a man, standing in a cake shop, asking the state to not force him to violate his arbitrary religious beliefs.

Sessions Vows Religious Liberty And Justice For All Straight Christians Amen

Time for another session of religious oppression.

Awful Attorney General and slightly worse standup comic Jeff Sessions isn't focused solely on ripping apart immigrant families and snatching weed from your cold, deadhead hands. He also is out to screw queer folks ... figuratively, I mean, though I suppose we don't know much about his personal life.

Star Parker Been Watching ZooPorn Again

Nasty libeling mean girl says what?

Star Parker, black conservative pundit and author of "Pimps, Whores, and Welfare Brats," has a very imaginative and disgusting mind. Just Monday she decided to open up her uninspiring mouth and spew forth a stream of bullshit that would make her mentor Rush Limbaugh mighty proud. While pondering the "Gay Agenda" she breathlessly declared her suspicions about what the "B" in LGBTQ was really all about. And just like the worst Encyclopedia Brown that ever lived, she came up with the dumbest conclusion, obviously on purpose, and she felt quite proud of herself. Star Parker self-righteously declared that the "B" secretly means BESTIALITY!!

Arizona Court Orders Gay Haters To Draw Dicks All Day

The times they are a-changin', THANK GOD.

Karma's a bitch, ain't she? Today an Arizona appellate court relied on Tuesday's SCOTUS ruling in Masterpiece Cake Shop to tell a couple of God-bothering calligraphers to quit whining and just write the damn Adam and Steve invitations already. And, irony alert, most of legal reasoning comes from a Bush-era decision forcing colleges to let military recruiters on campus despite their anti-gay bias.
