On AmericaSlog today:
There are a lot of rumors as to why today’s House floor vote on the GLB ENDA has been postponed.
[I]t’s not even clear if Baldwin still WANTS her trans amendment to be voted on now at all, because she may fear that the GLB ENDA crowd was right, that her amendment will go down in flames and that such a stunning defeat will set the trans community back years).
Hmmmm…if that reality has now been successfully manufactured, I wonder who it was that managed to weave it out of the cloth of initial receptivity to inclusion?

I have to pass along the following comment to today’s Aravosisism:
You learned to spin well from your time with the GOP. You threw trannies under a bus because you wanted votes for your bigoted ENDA bill, now Obama did the same, courting black church goers, and he’s a bigot, but you’re a pragmatist who doesn’t give a damn about trannies. You’re not kidding anybody but yourself. It’s okay for you to deny trans right, but if a candidate appears with a confused ex-gay singer, it’s clubbering time. Please look in the mirror and wipe that brown shit off your nose. No one is more sad about the divisiveness you caused than the people you banned because we still believe you did more harm than good. Once in the GOP, always in the GOP. It’s like being gay, no such thing as an ex-gay, right? It’s all trans people fault for wanting workplace protections like every other human beings. When you point a finger at Obama, you’re pointing even more at yourself.
It is signed ‘Banned American.’
