From Queer Channel Media…
Even more ridiculous is the (at present) sole comment to that anything-and-everything-except-undoing-Maryland’s-2001-political-hate-crime-against-trans-people piece:
While I wholeheartedly agree that the [Affordable Care Act] will bring tremendous benefit to LGBT Marylanders, another piece of VERY important legislation, and likely a priority over the localized implementation of the ACA is that of extending and assuring nondiscrimination protections to transgender individuals in the Free State. The priority of prohibiting the denial of employment, housing or credit based solely on a person’s gender identity or expression should be equally important for those advocates who were engaged in the successful campaign for marriage equality.
The problem with this isn’t the bare sentiment embodied by the words. Rather, its the messenger: May-gun Stay-bluh, a walking synonym for “giving cover to the transphobic cabal that is Gay, Inc.”
Trans people in Maryland wouldn’t be third-class citizens in 2013 if not for Gay, Inc. and its tentacles and apologists.
