Monica Roberts over at TransGriot:
One of the things that will make me go straight the hell off is when people utter the statement “I got my rights. I don’t need to lobby nationally”. I hear this far too often from many GLBT people who live in areas that have local or state protective laws. When you ask them to help us lobby on a national level, they’ll look at you disdainfully and say, “Why?”
Why? Let me break it down to you why you peeps who are fortunate enough to live in areas where your rights are covered need to get off your asses and help the folks that don’t.
There is more.
I recommend it.
