The Wants of the Infinitessimal Percentage of LGBs Who Desire a Career in the Military Trump the Desperate Need of Trans People For Basic Equality – Thank Gay, Inc.

From Pam’s House Blend:

I guess Congress can’t multitask. How does it make you feel about the federal legislative body being too feeble to put civil rights on the front burner? The disappointment is felt less in states where there are protections in place, but for those of us in flyover country without state-level ENDAs, any delay leaves LGBTs twisting in the wind, vulnerable to losing their jobs.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Friday said that a vote on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act wouldn’t take place until Congress completes legislative action on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

I’ll comment later.

Right now, I’m too angry for words.

    What about basic employment equality for LGB’s? Doesn’t the HRC care about making sure that white gay men don’t face employment discrimination? …or do they not care because sexual orientation is on the books in the places they care about?

    Mykell: It’s gotta be the latter. If said white gay man in flyover country is under- or unemployed because of discrimination, he won’t be able to contribute the fat cash that HRC requires to give a fuck about his plight.

    Agree. This simply isn’t the most important issue facing any letter in the lgbt acronym. And enda would be quicker to implement to boot.

    That said – the DADT activists did a better job of pushing for this issue to be addressed immediately. You didn’t see United ENDA chaining themselves to the WH fence. You didn’t even see JoeSo-So holding a phony demonstration with some minor celeb.

    I don’t agree with Kevin Naff on legislative issues too often (at least not his history on enda) – but he was spot on regarding JoeSo-So’s little attempt to bask in Griffen’s faint glow. “The worst kind of starfuckery”
