Okay, those weren’t his exact words. But, as Rebecca Juro reports over at Bilerico, they might as well have been.
No trans-inclusive ENDA, even with a Democrat in the White House. The rights of the poor and disenfrancised minorities sold out once again by Congressional Democrats on the altar of political convenience, this time two years in advance. They’re not going to bother to even try to do the right thing by gender-variant Americans anymore.
How does Becky know that there will not even be an attempt at a non-transphobic ENDA even in 2009?
Well, St. Barney of Fuck the Trannies was on the Scampaign’s slick propaganda vehicle, The Agenda, back on Monday. Becky has the entirety of the choice quote transcribed, but here’s the money shot:
[B]y the end of 2009 the Employment Non-Discrimination Law will become law. It will be illegal to discriminate based on sexual orientation anywhere in the country. A hate crimes law including protection for people who are transgender will have passed. And we will be, at that point, well on our way to try to extend this to people who are transgender and to getting rid of the ban of gays in the military.
Trannies in ENDA?
Becky asks – sarcastirhetorically – if anyone is surprised.
Sadly, you know that some will be – as they’re giving $35.00 gift cards to Joe Solmonese and the non-trans folks of privilege on Rhode Island Avenue.
