Two Years Ago: Obergefell v. Hodges

…and then 18 months later, tens (hundreds?) of thousands of those who ramrodded the want of marriage ahead of the basic employment-centric anti-discrimination needs of all LGBTs – including those who might not be coupled – on the national civil rights agenda voted for Trump out of lower-tax greed.

Marriage Derangement Syndrome is as Marriage Derangement Syndrome does.

When Illegitimate Justice Gorsuch writes the opinion that erases marriage equality, I will laugh at every gay Republican who whines.

Has the Future Already Been Forgotten? A Post-2007 Transgender Legal History Told Through the Eyes of the Late, (Rarely) Great Employment Non-Discrimination Act

The article is now available on the website of the William & Mary Journal of Women and the Law.  Please read before all of the pro-HRC revisionist crap is shoveled into officially-approved discourse this fall.

Has the Future Already Been Forgotten

Remember 2007: The Bait-and-Switch Began Early

On the day that H.R. 2015 was introduced:

2007Remembered01

First, Solmonese repeated the lie that the Human Right Scampaign was, in 2007, “the nation’s largest gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender advocacy organization.”  (Remember, at that time it had NO trans employees, had NEVER employed a trans woman in any capacity, had just recently been proven to be fraudulently inflating its membership numbers and – of course – was not really advocating for trans rights.)

Then, he immediately referenced the first federal gay rights bill – which was a GAY-ONLY rights bill – yet he immediately followed that with a sentence utilizing “GLBT.” (Tell me that that was not fully calculated to confuse the issue.  And, also, lets not forget that the bill he referenced, not only was not trans-inclusive, but it also was not employment-inclusive! Bella Abzug’s first bill was comprehensive – as to all areas of civil rights law other than employment.)

After his usage of “GLBT” he whips back around to mixing and matching in ways that he can later mold to mean anything he wants:

nearly 90 percent of Americans believe that gays and lesbians should have equal employment opportunities. Furthermore, a healthy majority of Americans support congressional action to pass the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

Which ENDA is he referring to?

The one that was then just introduced?

Or one that would only cover gays and lesbians?

Yeh, yeh…

We know how the story ends.  But follow along.  Maybe you can convince yourselves that the Solmonese Scampaign really gave a damn about whether we lived or died.

Appletinis for all!

 

 

Lets Keep Our Eye on the Ball, Folks: THIS is the REAL Enemy’s Ultimate Goal

From the Houston Chronk:

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott celebrated the Lone Star State on June 3, 2017, joining a call to hold a constitutional convention to rewrite the work of the United States’ Founding Fathers. The legislature joined 11 other states in passing a resolution calling for a “Convention of the States.”
