The Rigor Mortis

Need more proof that what used to be The Advocate is, as I’ve previously asserted, dead?

Well, I can think of six states (yes, I”m including YOU too, Massachusetts!) where there are practical, legal advantages to being gay – especially for those harbor the desire to maintain all forms of superiority over trans scum.

When the Employment Non-Discrimination Act is finally passed and the Defense of Marriage Act and other barriers to marriage equality are removed, will gays find they have more limits to success? Will we lose some of our difference, our business advantage?

To be fair, the two of you might have problems – if, by that point, you haven’t cleaned all of the barf off of you that will no doubt end up there as a result of all of the projectile vomiting that your thesis will induce.

You know…

like what certainly accompanied this comment:

Sounds good until you consider how many of us have lost jobs just because we are gay.

Indeed…

No one was really poorAt least, nobody worth speaking of.

  1. Hey – it’s probably true of white gay men. It’s certainly not of trans* women. Who are more likely to have advanced degrees – but less likely to have employment and if they do – at a much lower professional & compensation level.

    They nee to tease that data out a bit – I doubt lesbians of color – as an example – make more money either.

      Two weeks ago I sent in applications to two different arms of Gay, Inc. – one for the most trans-specific position imaginable.

      Care to hazard a guess as to what level of response I’ve received?

      • can you say NONE?

        • Well, “none” has an asterisk.

          There was a robo-e-mail from one of the organizations – and a testy non-robo-e-mail in response to my inquiry as to whether anyone or anything other than a trash folder saw my resume.
