Arlington, Va., gay activist Bob Mialovich, an HRC member and contributor who retired recently as a federal government official, called such criticism unfair.
“I can understand peoples’ frustration, but the reality is we don’t have a majority of support in Congress to pass the bills we need to pass,” he said. “If you are not directly involved, you may not be aware of what HRC is doing. What I know is they are doing a lot.”
…because those of us who are really aware have been seeing the same crap for a loooooooooooooooooooooong time now:
I think that the Human Rights Campaign has done as much if not more on transgender issues than most other national [ gay and lesbian ] organizations. If you really look at the actual work.
How about really looking at this:
With a staff of 150 full-time employees, the group’s revenue of close to $40 million makes HRC the largest national LGBT advocacy group.
1/4th of the letters…
1/150th of the paid workforce.
Should we thank Pee Wee for that being an increase over what the percentage was at the time of Queen Elizabeth III’s Outlines interview in 1999?
Your breath, do not hold (at least without washing your hands first.)
Cue the outraged, overly-privileged, detached-from-reality beneficiaries of HRC’s decades of fraud, misrepresentation and open hostility toward trans people and issues (sometimes referred to as ‘incremental progress’)….
