In a statement released Thursday, gay rights group the Human Rights Campaign praised [CEO of Apple (Elizabeth Birch’s pre-HRC employer) Tim] Cook’s “courageous” decision. The organization says Cook becomes the first openly gay CEO of a Fortune 500 company.
“Tim Cook’s announcement today will save countless lives,” says HRC President Chad Griffin. “He has always been a role model, but today millions across the globe will draw inspiration from a different aspect of his life.”
…if his coming out will save countless lives, doesn’t it follow that decades of HRC policy which had the de facto effect of forcing many trans people to stay miserably closeted and the direct effect of destroying the careers and/or aspirations of many other trans people who did come out destroyed countless lives?
Where are the reparations Chad?
C’mon Chad, don’t sit on the sidelines.
