Absolutely Imean Simon finally joining that and yes, yeah. Definitely not because it is pridemonth, but you guys should follow our twitter,because I'll twitter every single day will be posting. A fund factor, releaseto the LD community could be but the past. Could we but the future could werent? Now I don't think. I don't think that you could really post facts aboutabout the future. I I I I don't. I don't think that's how fax work...

...or you can check on our instar onTuesday and Thursday, when they will be a post about it, an individual whoidentifies with the TB community. Talking about that, I do want to talkabout about avery and PRI. Now Gay Pride. Now it's not bad avery. It's notlike you suck. No, I think my favorite thing about avery during pride month is:She goes full support of aunt or supportive mother. Oh my God, yeah. Shedoesn't act like a gay person. Exactly! Oh No! I do do you back like a motherally because you go be on every day beyond. That's why you'relike it, because supportive mothers always go beyond true it's just it's just me, I'm justthat it is. I is just like you like. I feel like somebody would actuallymistake every for being like a straight person like a straight ally, mother O,my God, I could never you act like bi sexual person. No, so does avery she's. I do yeah onnormal days, though, are is like rolled up dreams every single day. I I an ifhe's the reason we have stereotypes. I cut my hands and, like I wing myeyeliner, I cut my jeans. I wear dad shirts. Do you guys want to hear what Iwore to school today? Yes, farmer, Jean and a Dark Blue Ama shot sounds straight, butokay, yeah straight as soon e for in my entire life, I on ironically, stand ye, that's hilarious. What do you mean, andI R on ironically or ironically, I ironically stand stand? Are you okay?No, never! I need to go to bed know what you need a mouth, a milk. I you do need a melt,but you need to be eighteen plus. To do that, I mean fair. The FROG: Wasn't you know we'll get amove on from that before we get. You know in trouble, facts. So, okay, sorry! I know I want to askyou an opinion also who is a child with them? Your mom? Now that was my mom,that yeah like she was the child or she's with a child. Also so mon, yes,your mother would have a child. She has you exactly now. She was the oneyelling, your mother, not a child...

...anyway, the hell where we just roastedmy mom. Let's talk about Avery's mom, oh got it got it got. It got some onisso focused on t. So I was like. Oh my God, it's about me. We like most of the time it is, butwe're talking about Abe right now, hundreds were making fun of every right.Now. Okay, wait your turn! I would ask your opinion. So all thetime I see those pride calendars. What do you guys think about that? It was it's like the n Yeah I saw onetoday. Eighteenth is for ace people. I don'tlike them, possibly yeah. I kind of weird. I don't really. I don't reallyget it it because I mean like the whole month is yeah. It's not really like specificdays, but I mean if it was like an advent calendar and you got likeChocolateoh. No, that's the best idea, but a lateone. We were we Giuki, no, no Tis, I'm gonna buy Advent, calenders and paintthem. I was thinking okay, so it's the days of the month right, but every dayyou pull it like a chocolate and the chocolate is like a different prideflake. Well, no, but like skittles are just gay, so like yeah, but that's thesingle skiddle in a bit thin or like a Bagascia, a bag of skills. Dude likethe Halloween bags, Ka terain bow. I see, I think we should do both, though,because it could educate people on the sexuality es and genders. True, because,like on the back of the Pleg C, be a technic. This is the homosexual flag inthis is used to be a a you know. Anyway. I don't think the should like shorteneddates in the pride month should be sexuality because, like it's supposedto be inclusive and like well all in fun yeah, but I mean like Y'all: Do youyou're all doing you yeah yeah, we're up there on waiting? I just had amillion dollar idea, what different leg, amed skittles so like each color insidethe skittling different color scheme from a flag like a way so like a skittle, is like amulti color. No, no! No! So, like you know how scales have multiple colorsand it's like. Oh, it's rain, bulk! Okay! So if you put like a by flagskittles packet, you would have blue purple and pink yeah and then, like Iyoake, you know, like all the things. I have one question with that: Yes, whatdo we do when flakes have the same colors, but the colors are in differentorders? Well, the flag would be on the packageof yeah right. Okay, so okay be able to tell the difference and then on theback. There would be like a little description of what it is. Okay,...

...but the only thing is that skittlesdoesn't mean. I call it God all start fightin. Well, they should know because they they don't, becausethe rain Bo should only go to prieto the people to Alderby community, sothey get rid of the Rabot for us. What is tiding, I think, is better. I thinkthey should have like, maybe like a thing like that, but I like it thatwhen the skittles all white to be like you deserve it, yeah fair, I don't know but like forthe advent calendar, specifically okay for the Adman Calendar. I agree withthat, like I really want to make an advent calendar now just paint over thelittle boxes with the flag colors. Yes, oh my gosh. Okay, we're doing this kindo. If I can find one on Arizona, you're doing this anyways. Should we get into our topic?Probably Oh Jackson refuse never mind the men OJackson show. I found a heretic was under my pillow. I call them pony tailswhat Ye t, but that's what you put your, what that's what you're her becomes asbut your hair goes in. I know I call the Bony Del. I don't know you knowpeople call them bubbles. What where I thought we in the UK people, Godparoles, like my fat due Akerbole, my family calls them Ponselle, which Ithink is lost. Yeah, that's crest, very, that's verywordy! It's! My House, to a you, don't get to be nasty if he w that's verywordy avery, let's O at all. If I let put let's just read the scarps weal,quick avery see how wordy they are. No, but like amouthful, that's what you make me an so on! Doall the time! Well, you guys says you I edit it then listen me and Simon suffer fromdepressions and it's a mon just got anti depressions. Today we all don'thave at a depressions for pals avery, so some of US planing, that is, Iliterally couldn't read through this kit. The script because I was in themiddle of a screaming match. Okay in on the couches leave deciding not toeat and then being forced to eat shut up. I go a like something, I would say a your Dan coplayers. I would ask youguys sorry, I'm getting off topic. No I'll did this out and we'll talk aboutit later on my okay lavender scare. What is this? You ask? That's when yougo in to sage and you spallow the lavender and you die it really. I...

I went into I couldn't go to stage forthe sage like. If you don't know what sages it's like a store with all thesmelly things I couldn't go in for a while, because I would have sensory like shut down on mybasically. I would completely like panic and all that, like century overload, I would have asensory overlook and that's also what I going to go in the same mall, becauseat noon a train would ring, and so when it rained the first time it happened. Iscreamed at sat crying, I'm mactallargam DRI anyway, anyway, diving back into theGbwe you get so quiet. This is making me. I am sorry I would. I just went down abad thought train and I'm trying to reroute, I'm just being I'm just I'm just beingquiet. Okay, don't be quiet! Make this funnycome on! Stop Stop. Dives, show us your feet for you baby. I back into the GT plus history. Todaywe're going to be talking about the lavender scare, a topic that wasrequested by at K, K X S, P M S on twitter. We this was requested bysomebody. I was a question by somebody. You do O my God, that's so so so, onhaving to day some one hasn't been in no came and Abe have like beenscreaming about this all day in some on, we, like yeah we're were losing ourminds, our very first twitter interaction. Oh my God. We need to hideon a PO. Much again, it's at K K S, P M S on twitter. If just because I don'tknow, if I don't think it's in here. Another reason why we're doing this isbecause apparently they needed help with the will not help, but they needto to pass the social cast. So we're going to make this episode, andhopefully you will be able to listen to it in time to pass a sofa us and ifanyone else needs something to talk about for the social class there you gojust interacts with to me yeah all the way. This is what we say. If youinteret some twitter, we are going to listen and we'll most likely going tomake a talk about it because well on you for attention, we are a throw not why we started a podcasttheir attention for us, that's what Omond it and then me- and I were likeyou know. What so are we and it just whole thing and yeah a row not new inhistory? The lavender scare is something that don't know how muchknowledge or coverage concerning it join the MC coffee era. What error wasthere carthy in the cold during the Cold War? Is He a president? Probablyno you, as have to learn about your great above us aver, Oh yeah, basically like during the Cold War,there was like a whole bunch of anti communist shit, so, like around the close one was like the n s and thenthe second one was like around the s.

You know this mould have been somethinggood to put in the like actual script. Well, you know it is it's just if youkeep reading shut up no, but I was wonder if he was like apresident or something it is he just now is. This is a randomguy they're like yeah, we'll get a felt occator yeah? Well, his name was MC carthy. Sothat's why? Okay yeah, he wasn't a president. He was just some guy thatwas like screw com. UN is M, oh so, like all of the kids in my school coolcool in the cold world, Americans became divided between communism andate cognism. I think that's capital is Makin. I don't want to now. I don'twant to sound like. I know everything, but I feel like anticommunist, justcapitalism yeah, but I mean like everything that I was like researchingand all the technical terms called it anti communism, I'm not sure if it waslike a kind of considered something else that then, but we don't care it's capitalism andcapitalism is wrong. What for fear of the? U S, S R connections, peoplebecame prosecuted for being or suspected of being. A Communist welltie me up in the lavender scare. A cord a ran thesame in time as the second red scale, when any communist, an sorry I just had a fucking joke, the lavender scale occurred are in thesame time as the second Red Scot when any comes and I'll kiss and left us orleft US theories will fear, I'm just quick, because I hear it allthe time avery and you have a small one. No okay, as the USS Yours, I sorry,that's basically, just like Russia comes, oh, really, yeah, what it for, likeUnited States of Su Superior Russia, but I think it was something something: Soviet, Russia,her double check the Union of those Soviet SocialistRepublics. Okay, I got your Supreme Soviet of the OBI Union. Oh, I knowthat's something else. Sorry, my back yea, the Soviet Union, the Soviet Union.Just that's all! You got to think about some on. Take it away. So, as a call me,this is near and dear to my heart. Actually, Oh okay, anyways starting around the Mid TwentiethCentury Customer Service Voice, the lavender scared, listen, no one's GOIN TO CARE on you!It's okay! You! I know you Kay! I'm like Kaili pretending to pet. You like,as I feel like scared. Okay, basically, Homo phobbs were like gay people areComi sympathizers and it basically...

...started a whole. Sorry. What wrong wasthe wrong though he were they weren't necessarily wrong. However, it wasthought that gay people were more easily manipulated and they post anational threat to the country which then, like yeah fucking, fear me I'm anational threat. Like thing I'm going to put that on my resume Al Threat,national NIPA. No, but Isley manipulated. That's how you get hired we're saying this: Is it like thisisn't true like like it's not wrong like we're notgoing to say it's true, but it's definitely not wrong? Yes, but no! Okay, anyways! The lavender scare wasthe federal response to the homophone in normalized persecution of gay threepool gate. Three Pole I'll. Try that again, sookit normalizedthe persecution of gay people through bureaucratic institutionalism wow thatis a mouth be, went from like Samon to Samon to Samoan to some lint she simmons in bed. I can tell y o yeah yeah yeah yeah, just just go a pry holy go on averythis I'm like reading your pot, I'm like a is yea cool yeah, so my car Ke ideologistbehind the red scares. You know he was the one who really said: Fuck Communism. He really went into this whole lavender scarething. He really adopted it so working in the State Department, McCarthy,black listed fired four hundred and twenty five federal employees forallegations of homosexuality. That was just in like the first year or so he,the men that try to date me that I am part of the four hundred and twentyfive reject. So he used Hoopoo to his advantagerallying more pupil to join his cross by calling anyone who opposed him acommunist or a cock sucker- and you know I am Bote, you know how toxicmasculinity was back in the day he probably a cock. Sucker, thoughright, okay, that was my thought too, but anyways in one thousand, nine hundredand fifty three the executive order, one zero. Four five zero was signedwhich set up many restrictions for...

...federal employment and government,including any private, contracting or military. So approximately five sandpeople were forcibly outed, fired and barred from their jobs and shoved intothe public eye. So Yeah Fuck. That and here Jackson is a telling me to pluckcapitalism bitches. There would be excellent. He's highlighted it for meas well. I I just wanted to make sure you got that I feel like that's animportant addition to the paragraph. So only a minute. I had a milk a whileago s my pets hate me for trying to understand what you meantby. I had milk a while ago, like I somehow equated milk to alcohol, butthat's that's not right. I overhasten, my goodness, I am a threepercent melt.Is a local rose? If you don't know that will basicallysend me to your emergency room because well either I'm going to beshitting like everything out, I'm not I'm not going to be able to sit or I'mgoing to be going to Imorgen Y. do all three! That's what I said it could be both whynews iceman new policies arose, I'm just debating something or no, I will make fun ever just yet. Many new policies are rose to keephomosexuals out of government positions like such things as if you like Dickget out- and you know it just feel like that- sometimes that it was cluded for sieges to search ahomosexual dot am interview. Do you like Dick, yes, fuck it? That is, that is a real example.Looking for sins of sexual ornain and looking around the gay bars, many people were victimized byassociation, so basically Avery, who is secretlystraight Porson, if you RECTAE, imagine you imagine eve being straight,Otamatea had a straight portion on the heltopay to state and local governmentas well, leading to an ex mate of twelve million queer men and women tosign an oath, a testing to moral pruiti in order tokeep their jobs, the excidit, sorry all executive, the...

...the executive say that again I care you executive,say it like you said it again, a pry. I absolutely dare you exact DICO. I don'thave one I'll. So a dig on to you and then chop it off. That's intent'ssilent. I don't like when people like sound outwards to me as if in in greatone, I'm just trying to help you that's notgoing to help me. That's going to make action has issues that he needs toresolve in therapy. Don't we all uses on the wrong thing? The executive orderwas repealed by President Phil Clinton in one thousand nine hundred and ninetyfive, when you think about it. That was literally not that long ago, so yeah,let's thirty years ago, less than thirty years ago, guys like there arepeople who are older than thirty, like every son, my mom was like born beforeit was repealed mine to e and my mom as young. We wouldn't again we're talkingabout this, and this was in America saying this was mostly in America, butit was probably something similar was happening around the world yeah. Thisled to the military to atop the Donas don't tell pose and SONIG homosexualofficers. It is unknown how many injured visuals took the lights as aresult of the lavender scale, but we can take estimations that it is not asmall no number since described as a vicious witch hunt.John A director John Howard, began working on his documentary, the Levenslavender scare in two thousand and nine, with victimise gay astronomer, FrankCamminy. This film is inspired by David K, Johnson's novel the lavender scare,which came out in two thousand and nine John Howard's film, is an hour long andwas released in two thousand and seventeen and has won eleven awards asit should. I'm totally going to watch it later. We she netlik Betty, that'sparty. I don't think it's on that, but but yeah it's like a reallyunderstanded portion of history that is rarely taught in schools. I myself didnot learn anything about the lavender scare, despite having learned about theCold War and the red scares this year. So I really like to you know thank at K, K X S, P S M s again forrequesting this topic, because it was very enlightening to learn this, and Iwas always feel free to do your own research and maybe check out thedocumentary. Oh and remember you are valid, is fuck, Ros is fuck.
