[T]he “bisexual community” is not alone in its demand for recognition. We also have the addition of “transgender” to the title. This is curious. A straight friend of mine asked me what “transgender” means, and I had to confess I really didn’t know. I always thought that ‘transgender’ involved an individual with gender identity issues, like David Bowie or Hillary Clinton.
Bay Windows, on May 21, 1998, allowed that festering chunk of skunk excrement to see the light of day – as part of a column by Jim Gilbert, entitled “Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender…(yadda, yadda, yadda).”
Ever so strangely, that column has disappeared from the internet.
In fact, there’s not a T to be seen on it (L or B either for that matter), making it quite appropriate as HRC-logo-emblazoned crap.
…coming from a Queer Channel Media that appears to have not yet acknowledged the internal report that validates the criticism of the white, male (not to mention non-trans) hold on the actual power at HRC?
The John sez in 2014:
I know from bisexual friends that people who are bi often get a bad rap.
The John said in 2007:
Bisexuals, who were only part-time gays….
So, my question: Who exactly are these bisexual friends of The John?
I’ve personally never understood the problem — some people are gay, some are straight, some are in between, so why can’t someone be exactly in between?
Okay, I have another question: What exactly all was The John not able to understand in 2007? We he didn’t have a clue about ENDA or trans history. It looks as though the list is mounting.
…or (C) both.
What might the sign be?
The end of gay history
The John is revving up his transphobia machine…
…and we all know where that goes.
Seen recently on Facebook:
Sue Hyde just said to a group of 250ish that houstons host committee is the best host com ever. And a whole bunch of other great things about houston.
I wonder if she’ll say anything about how she was an active participant in the campaign to bully Olivia Records into committing employment discrimination against a trans woman and, by extension, being a midwife at the birth of the twin festering sores of trans employment policy in Massachusetts and in Gay, Inc.?
And I wonder if she’ll say anything about NGLTF’s worse-than-pathetic record of employing trans people?
