More Song ‘N Dance

From Gay City News:

In her first press conference as senator-designate, US Congresswomen Kirsten Gillibrand was quite clear.

“I will advocate for marriage equality and for women’s rights,” she said, in remarks delivered after Governor David Paterson announced her selection at a January 23 Albany press conference ….

And???  And???  And ???

She supported hate crimes legislation, co-sponsored the version of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act that included transgender protections….

So?  It had 184 co-sponsors – most of whom did what she did:

vote[] for the version that went to the floor with those protections stripped out

As with everything else amongst the permanent gay activism class of elites, marriage is the only thing that matters.  Trans people being able to find work?  Bwaaahhhhhhhhaaahhaaaaaa!

Recounting a telephone conversation he had the previous evening with Gillibrand, Alan Van Capelle, ESPA’s executive director, said, in the [press] release, “After talking to Kirsten Gillibrand, I am very happy to say that New York is poised to have its first US senator who supports marriage equality for same-sex couples. She also supports the full repeal of the federal DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) law, repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT), and passage of legislation outlawing discrimination against transgender people.”

Again…So? 

If you ask most, if not all, of the 184 co-sponsors of the legit 2007 ENDA, they’ll belch that same gas at you. 

For a few of them, it is substantive and not just hot air – but for most, when the Rhode Island Avenue Cesspool signals yet again – and it will (the only question is ‘when,’ not ‘if’) – that it is okay to give gays and lesbians a special federal right to discriminate against trans people, they’ll take that cover and run and hide with it.
