Biden declares IDAHOBIT Day; it’s part of the LGBTQ+ constellation of days

There are lots of days on the calendar that are “days of observance” or celebration for gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders and the rest of the LGBTQ+ population. May 17 is another one of those days.

According to presidential proclamation, it’s IDAHOBIT Day, and it has nothing to do with Tater Tots.

It’s International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.

President Joe Biden has issued a message, that begins with: “On the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, my Administration stands in support and solidarity with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI+) people around the world as they seek to live full lives, free from violence and discrimination. This is a matter of human rights, plain and simple. The United States applauds those individuals and groups worldwide working to defend the rights of LGBTQI+ people wherever they are under threat. And we are grateful for the contributions that LGBTQI+ people make every day across our nation.”

It was the first of several proclamations issued by the White House on Friday, including Hepatitis Testing Day, Armed Forces Day, and National Boating Safety Week.

But don’t blow your entire budget on this one observance. Next week you’ll have another shot: – May 24 is Pansexual Day, and then the entire month of June is set aside for Pride Month.

Can’t keep up? Here’s a partial list of LGBTQ+ days of observances, beginning with Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week, which is the antidote to Valentines Day.

  1. For the love of God, this again?

    Grandpa Bloodstains spends more time celebrating the alphabet gang than he does America.

    And there’s a good chance he’ll
    be re elected.

    It’s past time Grandpa Bloodstains leads by example and becomes the worlds oldest trans.

    • Really, the absurdities just keep growing don’t they, but as a straight white man, I can’t say that huh……tough shitski.

      • Yes you can. Don’t cowar behind an alphabet. Just like blm, that’s what they want. Be you! Freaks are freaks and they know it. It’s just about gathering votes. Nothing more. It’s time to take a stand for normality.

  2. Wow! Took awhile to load all these dates onto my calendar. Sort of crowds out my dental and medical appointments. The good thing is that instead of fostering ‘sensitivity’ to their ever evolving cause, it tends to numb you. My survival instincts kick in and force me to believe that surely life has not been reduced to all this.

  3. If we must have all these sexual preference recognition days, how about National Girl Watching/Appreciation Day?

    ‘https://youtu.be/yatGAAslCsM?si=qZVTH8__QUx0n1nI

  4. Queer year is more appropriate and covers every single day we have had a queer for a president starting with the puppetmaster himself in 2008.
    We are celebrating the exciting changes Obama promised us and will soon be governed(ruled) by the next black president Hakeem Jeffries Nora Odonnell was propping up for the democrats on 60 minutes a couple weeks ago.
    It was a very exciting interview for the next up and coming black president who is very excited to continue Obama’s legacy of turning the tide for the black race.

  5. This is a component of the LGTBQ(whatever) stuff: It is “all gay, all day”. The demand for recognition appears to be insatiable. If LGTBQ+ folks want to live their lives without adverse reaction why is there an insistence on being in everyone’s face all the time? The “look-at-me-I’m-gay” act gets old really fast. Most people couldn’t care less. If that causes a problem for a LGBTQ+ person, that is too bad. How nice for you; can we talk about something other than your sexuality? Stop the narcissism.

  6. I noted a statement last week by the FBI. “Organizations like ISIS may seek to exploit increased gatherings associated with the upcoming June 2024 Pride Month.”

    Who else is surprised it isn’t “white supremacists”?

    A more accurate statement would have been something along the lines of, “A growing majority of Americans have had it with widespread public celebrations of deviant, niche sexual groups. The fbi recommends to these groups to hold smaller and more targeted ‘celebrations’ within their own communities.”

    Because almost everyone doesn’t want to see their crap. Most don’t give a rip at all unless you shove it in their faces, then things can get ugly. And I suspect this year things will be uglier then last year. Until this stops.

    Make June about wedding and brides again. Down with the alphabet mafia and the pagan theocracy. A pox on both of them… which looking at these groups probably isn’t a big ask.

    • micah–the specific mention of ISIS by the FBI and the State Dept is because ISIS has been threatening violence against LGBTQ+ events all across the globe. There were also several recent arrests made of ISIS operatives both here in the US and globally linked to anti-LGBTQ violence.

      • sd-

        Didn’t another poster (Ginny I believe) and I have a discussion here about the origins of ISIS?

        Where would those two posts be? They were up for a while…

  7. This should come as no surprise. Three-fourths of Biden’s Administration and Cabinet are either lesbian, homosexual, non-binary, tranny, queer, or some other concoction of abnormal. That’s why LGBTQ has been in our faces for four years.
    Joe Biden has no idea who’s running the White House because he’s pathetically demented. But all of the abnormals, who are currently in charge,
    are trying to change the basic dynamics of human biology, and as a result, the mental breakdown of our society is in full display.

  8. Over 25 separate events (some running for a month) for the alphabet gang. And Grandpa Bloodstains couldn’t be bothered with Easter.

  9. You forgot January and August.

    January, 2nd week and random days from third week
    Happy Pickle Sniffer’s week. Revel in the pickle and donate 10% of your wife’s makeup to a transvestite.

    August, All of it.
    Sweaty Huang week. Wife told you it’s too hot and to “put that nasty thing away”? Grab yourself a cross dresser and see if the ‘lipstick on a pig’ thing is real. Bring a ball gag for yourself incase the pig gets out of hand.

    Joe Biden mask optional. SASE for the presidential ‘roid salve recipe.

    Whoop whoop!

  10. I’m pretty sure it’s I DA HOBBIT Day, Suzanne.

    Small, hairy people who live in The Shire are people too.

    Just ask anyone who identifies as one, at any moment, anywhere.

    There’s room for EVERYONE in the Dictatorship of Relativism!

    Except Harrison Butker and his fringe cult.

  11. BIDEN HAS ABSOLUTELY NO MORAL COMPASS!!! His whole presidential campaign is a farce.
    TRUMP 2024🇺🇸🇺🇸

  12. I am sick of hearing about this sick Regimes latest bs! Like these freaks need ANOTHER day to shove in the face of normal society!
    Biden is disgusting. An old, nasty child fondling FOOL!
    The day a POTUS jumps on this crazy bandwagon shows what kind of evil is afoot.
    None of their stupid days means diddly.
    Burn their rainbow flags! Sick disgusting individuals. All of them!

  13. Hmmm. It’s interesting that more than a third of the year is dedicated to celebrating a group that keeps adding letters to its acronym. The “community” continues to expand slowly and insidiously as the move to erase “normal” marches forward. Again, interesting to note the increased push to celebrate mental illness. Sad…

  14. I’m celebrating IDGAF day from now on. Along with LMTHA month.add in the STFU holiday.

  15. Hey, SD, you missed National Honor LGBTQ+ Elders Day on May 16. ‘https://www.lgbtagingcenter.org/resources/resource.cfm?r=2102

  16. I live w/ a gay child.
    She has nothing to do w/ any of this.
    She is trying to live normally, like most Americans.
    All this in your face nonsense will just trigger nut jobs ….imo.

  17. We have no in the public, we have no in the private and we have no functional town square and the US Constitution appears to be paused while nearly everything is in conflict with the unchangeable US Constitution.
