Why Gay, Inc., Refuses to Hire Trans Women

From a NY Times op-ed about the corporate-prosecutor slant to President Obama’s nominees to the federal bench:

Professional diversity on the federal bench was once more valued. In a 1992 tribute to Justice Thurgood Marshall, Justice Byron White spoke of the benefit of working with a jurist who, in addition to being the first black justice, had also been a renowned civil-rights lawyer. “Thurgood brought to the conference table years of experience in an area that was of vital importance to our work, experience that none of us could claim to match,” Justice White said. “Thurgood could tell us the way it was.”

If the people who get rich via permanent employment in Gay, Inc., had to work side-by-side as equals with trans women, the people who get rich via permanent employment in Gay, Inc., might actually hear how it really is.

If the people who get rich via permanent employment in Gay, Inc., had to work side-by-side as equals with trans women, they wouldn’t long be able to maintain the disgusting institutional arrogance that allows them to continue to claim that the barbaric, near-total-absence of trans women in Gay. Inc. isn’t purely the result of rabid transphobia.

Yeh, that’s circular…

but so is the cycle of exclusion that trans women are run over with whenever we are stupid enough to believe that the resumes that we send to places like HRC, NGLTF and Lambda Legal do anything other than end up as liners for litter boxes.
