Last Thursday Jason Bellini of the Daily Beast reported that the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) had made a […]
Today we discussed the lies forwarded by Christian Conservatives, gender marker changes in Massachusetts,
the ALCU suing Illinois for not changing documentation of people who had SRS outside of the United States, and GLAAD’s misstep of nominating the show “The New Adventures of the Old Christine.”
Running for office in 2003, Althea Garrison said that a:
“most compelling reason why someone should vote for me is that I am different and unique from the other candidates, when candidates run and loose [sic] elections most of them goes back to their obscurity not me I continue to fight and bring issues to the limelight,“
While the Dems got through with their debates a week back, in the interest of fairness it behooves me to at least give the GOPpers a report with regards to Trans America.
Two weeks earlier, they had their first network debate with all candidates currently declared (Fred Thompson is not one of those) in Iowa; the following week they conducted their straw poll there, with the expected victory for Mitt (the only presidential candidate ever named after a baseball glove) Romney. For the sake of fairness, the other top-tier candidates to date – Rudy Giuliani and John McCain – skipped the straw poll. Fred Thompson has not officially declared, so he’s officially not a candidate and polled better than the aforementioned other skippers.
So what does this mean for GOP America? Moreover, what does this communicate to Transgender Americans?
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:
HR 1592 IH
H. R. 1592
To provide Federal assistance to States, local jurisdictions, and
Indian tribes to prosecute hate crimes, and for other purposes.
