(Purple and Yellow) Food for Thought

From Queer Channel Media:

Amid trans discontent, HRC endorses nominees for EEOC

Following confusion in the transgender community over its previous silence, the nation’s largest LGBT group has publicly announced its support for nominees pending before the U.S. Senate for a federal agency charged with enforcing civil rights law.

Fred Sainz, the Human Rights Campaign’s vice president of communications, told the Washington Blade late Sunday his organization supports the nominees for the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, but cautioned more than words are necessary to ensure their confirmation.

HRC has had a troubled relationship with the transgender community but HRC President President Chad Griffin this year apologized to the transgender community for having done wrong in the past.

Now, seen on Facebook:

Steve Clark  “Amid trans discontent”? Having grabbed trans protection under Title VII for themselves alone after sabotaging ENDA with purity demands and hypocritical whining about solidarity, I fail to see the basis for their fury over the current status of federal employment discrimination law. Then again, trans fury has just become constant white noise in connection with everything. It’s acting out as a bullying tactic, and the response to it should be NO.
