Meredith Brooks once sang:

I’m a bitch, I’m a lover
I’m a child, I’m a mother
I’m a sinner, I’m a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I’m your hell, I’m your dream
I’m nothing in between
You know, you wouldn’t want it any other way

But I guess there are some gay men who aren’t channeling Meredith. From the Washington Blade’s “Bitch Session

“It’s transgender people that need the gay and lesbian movement to succeed not the other way around. They are a minority within a minority who couldn’t get very far without us yet they always arrogantly fail to recognize that! Learn some humility instead of being so damn uppity.

To the transgender activist who had the gall to say that gays and lesbians can’t move forward without them: The fact is transgender activists have opposed gay rights legislation in the past simply because they weren’t included! Despite their being as bad as Christian conservatives or selfish brats, we often managed to succeed without them! They should thank us for forgiving them for this and allowing them to retard our progress by including them now!”

It was billed as the “HRC Foundation and Logo Presidential Forum” but you could have just as easily called it the “HRC and Logo Presidential Forum on Marriage Equality. But it wasn’t supposed to be that way.

According to Donna Rose’s blog:

“I have been told by people who would know that a decision has already been made that each candidate will be given a “T” question (their words, not mine). When I sent my list of questions this morning (the deadline was noon), part of the response I got back was that they particularly “like the more general ones because it requires them to be more forthcoming.”

For the record, there was ONE question during the entire forum that was a “T” question. Joe Solmonese asked John Edwards the following question:

“Susan Stanton is in our audience tonight. She was, for 17 years, the city manager in Largo, Florida. She did her job well; she was respected and admired. And when it was revealed that she was transgender, she was fired. So my question for you is if a member of your staff came to you and told you that they were transgender and that they were thinking of transitioning, how would you react to that? And who in your life has influenced what your reaction might be?”

Hillary Clinton is going to be the next President of the United States and look at all the trans friendly people who are endorsing her campaign.

Can you imagine endorsing a candidate that doesn’t support gays and lesbians?

Why not? They don’t have a problem supporting Presidential candidates that don’t support transgender people, and why would you be surprised at that?

Take a look at what’s happening in NY with GENDA or Massachusetts where transgender people can still be fired from their jobs, harassed, beat up and murdered with no hate crime law to help with investigations or prosecutions.

MASS Equality is having trouble trying to figure out what to do with their left over 3 million dollar budget. Their job is done, same sex marriage is legal, gays and lesbians have a non-discrimination law and a hate crimes law. Look out NY, same sex marriage will be next in your state too. Don’t worry, they’ll be back for ya…just ask Jeff Soref to help ya out, perhaps he’ll even put in a good word for us so Hillary will support a trans-inclusive ENDA.

I do believe there are a few members of Mass Equality on Hillary’s support list too, let’s all remember to thank them.

While we’re at it, we can thank Peter Rosenstein (another name on the “list”) for his stellar support for trans-inclusion in ENDA and the Hate Crimes Prevention act. You can read about it here in his opinion piece: Should we support pro-gay legislation that does not include trans protections?

Do I really need to mention Joe Solmonese’s co-hostess on XM satellite radio? She gets the double whammy award for support.

The list of undying support goes on and on and on but don’t take my word for it, you have Google.

Hold the phone! There is one transgender person on this list, go get ’em Melissa Sklarz!

We like to try and change the world, one tranny at a time.

Here’s Hillary’s support list:
