Sorry Bigots, Your Facebook Memes Are Wrong – The Daily Beast

Sorry Bigots, Your Facebook Memes Are Wrong

Samantha Allenby Samantha Allen

Anti-trans, Target-boycotting memes are all over social media. And they’re all fake.

If you see a viral anti-transgender post circulating on Facebook, chances are it’s fake.

The good folks at the myth-busting website Snopes have been working overtime during the American Family Association’s boycott of Target to disprove stories and memes tied to the retail giant’s policy of allowing transgender people to use the restroom that matches their gender identity.

Was the official Target Facebook account rude to a boycotter? No, that was a fakecustomer service account. Is Target installing urinals in women’s restrooms? No, and anout-of-context photo of two urinals in a Target bathroom proves nothing of the sort. Was a transgender woman arrested for photographing minors in a women’s restroom at a Dallas Target? Absolutely not. That story was completely fabricated on a fake news website that postures as a legitimate local media outlet.

    But the transgender hippo that was caught masturbating in the next stall to a mother and her daughter is true, right?

    Anti-trans bigots. I despise anti-trans bigots. They should be forced to live in segregated communities closed off by large walls, the building of which they must pay for themselves, and be made to use rusty buckets as toilets. Also, they must all be forced to French kiss Ted Cruz so they’ll have something real to dislike and complain about. Idjits.

    Reblogged this on Scotties Toy Box and commented:
    It pays to know the truth, because some people will lie their butts off trying to get people to join them. They don’t see it as a wrong. I had one person tell me that it was OK to lie, cheat, steal, do anything you can, as long as your side wins. Yet they claim to be the more moral ones, they claim to be superior to us heathens. Hugs
