GLAAD ACTION ALERT: Transadvocate.com Is Worse than Randi Rhodes and Michael Savage Combined!

July 16, 2007 ·

I’m waiting for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) to put out an action alert calling for a ban on Transadvocate.com. Why? Because I’ve asked them to advocate for  the “T” in their mission statement with the same veracity that they do for gay and lesbian issues. I even wondered on blog if we should protest GLAAD the way we’ve protested the Human Rights Campaign (for lack of inclusion).

While on vacation last week, I periodically checked my email via my cell phone. While I could post to my blog and send or receive email, I couldn’t really moderate any new comments ( I only moderate new commenters, as a way of protecting against spam). When I got home yesterday, this comment (concerning my Randi Rhodes Redux post) was sitting in my inbox, waiting for my approval.

“Obviously no one here is going to pleased with Randi says because you can’t be — you have to have some avenue for your anger no matter the fact Ms. Rhodes obviously regrets what she said, understands why it was offensive and has gone to time and trouble to speak here. But that isn’t good enough. You have to take every word she says in her effort and twist into something that was never meant. I feel sad for you. So much hate. If you can’t forgive Ms. Rhodes then there is truly no hope for you. Wouldn’t it be amazing if people treated you the same way . . . get it? Isn’t that what this is all about . . . understanding people and getting past the little stuff?” – David

You wouldn’t see the computer network (and the IP address) where the comment comes from, but I see them when the comment notification is sent to me. David’s comment looked this way:

I’ve always wondered why GLAAD has chosen to ignore Michael Savage’s diatribe against transsexuals (yet they issue alerts against Bill O’Reilly for a much less vitriolic rant). It all makes sense now! They’re too busy policing trans blogs on company time to worry about such things.

  4. I would have hoped that any employee of GLAAD would have acted more responsibly. Regardless of the position they hold within the organization, as long as they are sending email or posting on blogs from their place of employment, their opinions are a direct reflection on that organization. Given GLAAD’s past inactions regarding negative media aimed at transgender people, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to hold GLAAD accountable for their one employee’s actions.
    People who are suppose to be advocating for us and assumed to be on our side should be held to an even higher standard and should be held accountable when they screw up. I’m speaking of both GLAAD and Rhandi Rhodes.
    Rhandi Rhodes’ apology is unacceptable as long as she keeps trying to justify her reasons for making fun of Ann Coulter at the expense of transsexuals and shame on GLAAD for sitting with their thumbs up their asses while they allowed both Rhodes and Savage to get away with their hateful remarks without a peep!
    Thank you Marti for doing what you do, my friend.

  6. I wouldn’t worry about that one post– it’s from one person, whose may or may not have influence at GLAAD.

    I would, however, continue to worry about GLAAD’s habit of not doing anything against defamation of trans people.

    Oh, and glad to have you back.
