Protest GLAAD?

July 7, 2007 ·

Transexual Menace protested HRC for lack of inclusion in their advocacy back in 2005, I think maybe it’s time to protest GLAAD for the same thing.

In a post entitled : GLAAD About Hate Speech, I discussed the viciousness of Michael Savage’s most remarks concerning the murder of Ruby Ordenana.

GLAAD’s response consisted of a paragraph, released ONLY to me.

So what do I get in my email box today?

GLAAD Call to Action: “The O’Reilly Factor” – “Lesbian Gang Epidemic?”

Problem: popular talk show host overstates the facts on Lesbian Gangs
Action: action alert.

Problem: popular talk show host says:

“The wages of sin are death. You’re gonna cut off your willy, you’re gonna walk around in women’s clothes, you’re gonna hook, you’re gonna wind up dead under a freeway, Johnson”

“But you know what? You’re never gonna make me respect the freak. I don’t want to respect the freak. The freak ought to be glad that they’re allowed to walk around without begging for something. You know, sick and tired of the whole country begging, bending over backwards for the junkie, the freak, the pervert, the illegal immigrant. All of them are better than everybody else. Sick. Everything is upside down.”

Action: write a paragraph to a small blog.

Shockingly, another supposed GLB”T” group plays fast and loose on who they advocate for. If you include us in your mission statement, how about you follow through with it? Is that too much to ask?

  1. I’ve always been a bit curious as to why groups who’s primary issues revolve around sexuality would include a population who’s primary issues revolve around gender. But then again, roughly 10% of us identify as either gay trans-men or lesbian trans-women, the latter of which is often shunned by the lesbian community at large.

    Maybe what we need to do is redirect our resources and energy to groups and organizations that actually do address our issues? I for one prefer to deal with the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR), which has a proven track record for advocacy on our issues and needs (unlike HRC and GLAAD, which sees us as throw-away political bargaining chips).

    Just a thought.

  3. I totally agree Marti. In fact, I think we would be better off in the long run if some of these LGB”T” organizations just left the “T” out of their mission statements. At least then organizations that do more for trans rights would get more trans money than it being wasted on LGB organizations which talk one way and walk another.

    Besides, if they removed us from their mission statements then at least we wouldn’t be lulled into a stupor with their hollow lullabies.
