The original post at TransAdvocate re: the prognosticatory excellence of “Vic” went into a vortex, so I thought I’d remind everyone.
In a little-noticed development, opponents of a transgender non-discrimination law approved earlier this year by the Baltimore County Council attempted to kill the law by circulating petitions to gather signatures needed to place it on the ballot in a referendum.
Organizers announced on Tuesday that they failed to obtain signatures from the required three percent of voters in the county needed to place the law on the ballot.
I think that the reminders are necessary because of this comment that I blocked from my recent post about remembering GENDA:
We haven’t forgotten. And if it should come up, we will oppose it. Actively. Payback for your anti-gay bigotry in Maryland.
We all know that “Vic,” though claiming to be a gay man, was the product of one or more radphlegm transexterminationists from one or more locales – probably including Maryland and Massachusetts, though the varying New York IP addresses attached to the messages all have a likely unintentional connection to a crappy brand of yuppified Mexican beer (or, if you prefer, a decent Paul Simon tune – pajamas not included.)
Oh, and the collective “Vic” used at least a half-dozen different, albeit similar, gmail e-mail addresses (all beginning with “V”).
Well, now we have “Daniele”…
“who” followed “Margie” (Margot, perhaps?) of a few weeks back:
If by some miracle, GENDA gets a vote, I and my posse pledge to contact every member of the state senate to oppose it. That is my promise to you, in exchange for your unsuccessful attempt to harm gay families in Maryland.
We all know what posses do, right? Meaning that, under the ‘vampire’ standard, that’s a threat, no?
“Margie” showed some creativity by coming up with an e-mail address that didn’t begin with the same letter as the fake name – but the IP address was from the same general real area of NYC.
And the mantra is still as devoid of facts as a Burchill bleat.
The only “harm” ever attempted or accomplished has been against trans people.
What is owed is years of back pay to trans people fired – and never hired in the first instance – in jurisdictions that have not only tolerated gay-only rights laws but allowed them to lead not to their own rectification but instead to further state-sanctioned ability to ‘other’ trans people out of the political process and employment market.
