How Many People Currently Involved With Trying to Get Gay Marriage in Maryland Expressed an Opinion on (or were Otherwise Involved in) The Fight Against Prop 8 in California?

And, of those, how many are seething over us unwashed, non-Maryland-pure scum offering our analysis of the ‘Equality’ Maryland-consecrated, anti-trans HB 235?

I’m just curious.

Really – I’m just curious:  Why is it okay for gays and lesbians (and their supporters) from all across the country to fight against a law that established a ceiling on the civil legal status of same-sex relationsips in California but it is not okay for trans people from all across the country to fight against a proposal that, far from making trans people equal to gays and lesbians in Maryland, would establish not a floor for trans civil rights but a ceiling and act not merely as yet another form of gay-mandated ‘incremental progress’ in Maryland but as a limitation template for future trans civil rights proposals in other states and at the federal level?

I’m just askin’.

Amendment 2 in Colorado was a disease that had to be stopped – and it was stopped (by the Supreme Court, but stopped nevertheless.)

Anti-gay marriage amendments are a disease – but, of course, gays and lesbians haven’t yet figured out that the only way to stop them is to stop provoking them into existence.

Trans-othering proposals masquerading as civil rights bills whose purpose is to bring trans people up the point where gays and lesbians threw us out of a moving car are anything but what official gays and lesbians are representing them to be.  Oh, to be sure, the car that threw us out is headed back toward us - but with pedal to the medal, all brake lines severed and no intent whatsoever to actually stop to let us get in.  Maryland’s HB 235 is a petri dish for Barney Frank’s wettest anti-trans wet dream, the final politico-rhetorical excuse to never actually enact any form of inclusive ENDA and to only propose ones that are even more monstrously transphobic than either HB 235 or the only-released-to-trans-quislings-who-are-reliable-liars revised language of last session’s ENDA – because if even Maryland can’t pass what ‘those people’ want, Congress certainly can’t be bothered with actually thinking about the issue.

    As long as stuff happens anywhere in the United States and increasingly the world that has the potential to mess with my civil rights, I’m going to comment on it.
