Questions for the ACLU:
Did you ask LGBTs in Alabama for their input on that?
Who the f*#% wrote it? Barney “We had three items and there was only room for two” Frank?
If the ACLU is making this a zero-sum game, then its time to close up the constitutional shop and let #DonTheCon put his implants in our brains.
A REAL (read: non-gerrymandered-Republican-fake-majority) Congress would have the time and energy to deal with anti-LGBT and anti-Muslim concerns. THIS Congress would like to see all members of both groups up against the wall. Hell, thus far the only time the current Congress has had anything close to an inclination to do anything other than kneel before #DonTheCon with an open mouth has been standing up to the Puzder nomination.
ACLU: EPIC FAIL!
DOJ nixes request to halt order against trans student protections
The time has come to officially retract the (even-in-2012-nonsensical) position espoused in:
Trans Americans enjoy robust bias protections
If you want to regain some credibility, you’ll allow me to write the retraction op-ed.
While they slept – either comatose from the L-Tryptofan of Iraq War (profiteering) engorgement and the oxycontin of trickle-down christianist sham economics that harmed the very disenfranchised white supremacists it had been sold to as a cure for all ills, or latently anencephalous via ‘reality’ television tales of fake lives grounded in substanceless nonachievement – the bear that Ronald Reagan had warned them about entered their homes and devoured them all. But it was not a communist bear; instead, aided by the most diseased monster that multiple American immoralities could cobble together into one clown, it was a bear amped up on the very capitalistic economic steroid that Reagan died believing saved the world by selling…
to a Russian bear.
There has not been a day in my memory when we have not been better off than we were the day before.
– Daniel Zingale, Director of Public Policy, Human Rights Campaign Fund, in an interview in North Carolina’s The Front Page, June 9, 1995.
Daniel has/had a short memory. Five years before that date, trans people were not, via language that equates trans people to pedophiles, statutorily excluded from federal disability anti-discrimination law.
Then came the day that the ADA became law.
