Why are these misogonystic, transphobic and homophobic people at KRXQ still allowed to broadcast? KRXQ offered no apology even after over 10 of major advertisers pulled there support.

The following companies have not removed their ads from KRXQ after learning of this outrageous behaviour.

Please email these companies and voice your condemnation of KRXQ. Please feel free to copy and past this email;


Please pull your advertising from KRXQ Radio in Sacramento.

I listened to KRXQ Radio’s segment about trans-gender children. I can’t imagine anything more cowardly than two grown men advocating violence against children.

Obviously the disk jockeys have the right to their opinions, and the right to voice them. But framing Rob and Arnie’s rant as a First Amendment issue is disingenuous. As a station they are responsible for the ignorance and hatred they promote. People–children–get killed over these issues. There’s more to free speech than the right to mouth off, and more to life than ratings.

Intentionally or otherwise, your continuing advertisements on KRXQ Radio indicate your support of Rob and Arnie’s positions. It is the DTAA's intention considering the present absence of a public retraction or apology from Rob or Arnie, to bring this situation to the forefront of consideration at KRXQ by exerting fiscal pressure.

We hope that you will join with the companies that have already endorsed diversity and equality by pulling your advertising from KRXQ until such time as KRXQ makes a public retraction and apology.

Awesome blog header, Kelli.

I'm always fascinated as to how these call to action thingys work.

On my blog, I've been asking how, for example, what these three said have said is any more or less relevant than Andrew Wilkow has said on his show.

I've been waiting for someone at GLAAD to explain why, for example, when Wilkow suggests gay and transgender babies should be aborted is okay while what Rob, Arnie & Dawn is not.

I guess my e-mail is broken. That or the commenting thing on my blog.

I forgot to add... I've tried posting my concerns (or inquiry) on their blog, but, apparently they're picking and choosing who can leave comments.

Lets work on the Andrew Wilkow project.
Timing is everything. This man has been at it for how long now? Has he defamed children?

I didn't originate the momentum that is carrying the KRXQ action.
Kim Pearson sounded the alarm I heard. Kim is the leader of TransYouth Famlies and Allies of which I belong, a close personal friend and a wonderful advocate of the youngest and most vulnerable members of our transgender community.
Kim is also a member of the DTAA. She is playing a tremendously beneficial role in shaping the positive advocacy from the DTAA regarding the KRXQ issue.

Glaad is awesome. Lets find a way to make this happen. I have worked in some very delicate situations with the leadership of GLAAD and have full confidence in their abilities.

Did I always get exactly what I wanted when I wanted it? Hmmm, not right away, but it seems like Christmas comes at some very unexpected times now:)~k
