This Week on LGBTQ Twitter: De-sexing bones & queer lemonade
It’s like Thumper’s mama said: “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.”

And we thank you.
In response to a homophobic tweet by @MIGOP @CoChairMeshawn calling Pete Buttigieg a “weak little girl,” the Transportation Secretary responds:
“I’m raising a little girl and little boy, and I’m going to raise them with better values than the chairwoman.” pic.twitter.com/v2TqXlMk7Q
