It Must be Nice… (UPDATED)

…to get paid to berate your own people by calling recognition of the fakeness of a ‘progress’ that Gay, Inc. has forced us to accept in lieu of a real progress wherein our people are legal equals to the owners and operators of Gay, Inc. “learned helplessness.”

It must be even nicer if, by chance, you have enough inherited wealth to do it for free if (as I hope but am not holding my breath on) no one is willing to pay for such nonsense.

Here’s a FACT: Trans people’s protections are no more ‘robust‘ than the next judge says they’re not.

Anyone who tells you differently either can’t tell the difference between an M.D. and a J.D. or is trying to sell you something – or both.

UPDATE – 9/16/2016

It looks like someone over at what used to be the Advocate shares my disdain for Wacky Ol’ Doc Beyer’s nonsense:

She claims, by citing several articles, that there is a sense of learned helplessness in the trans community, and uses articles to say that they portray a world where trans people are “always the victim, are always suffering, and deserve pity, rather than liberty.” I’m afraid she could not be further from the truth.

So no, not just The Advocate but no LGBT publication, feminist website, or minority activist is going to quit complaining, quit calling attention to issues, or stop rocking the boat because there have been a few victories. To think calling attention to the issues that remain is learned helplessness is completely wrong. As long as you are still fighting, you’re not helpless.
