As summed up in one of Phyllis Frye’s Phyllabuster e-mails (specifically, an addendum to her e-mail of a Houston Chronk piece):
Why is it that the Prop 8, same-sex marriage fight in CA and the DOMA same-sex marriage fight in the Northeast are BOTH so well funded by lesbian and gay groups and lesbian and gay individuals, but the same-sex marriage fight in Texas has been thus far supported ONLY by a small number of mostly transgenders plus three LGBT-allied churches, mostly in Houston, all in Texas?
Where is the same national support given for the L and G same-sex marriage struggles? Has it remained nonexistent for over six weeks now because this Texas fight is insignificantly and merely a “tranny” same-sex marriage fight, so who nationally gives a shit? Then are we a National LGBT-inclusive community, but NOT when it comes to financing the “tranny” same-sex marriage fights? From here, it seems to me — still — that the national L and G groups and the big bucks L and G attitudes haven’t really changed very much. FOLKS, IT IS TIME YOU FIGURED IT OUT THAT THE SAME-SEX MARRIAGE FIGHT IS JUST AS MUCH A TRANSGENDER FIGHT AS IT IS A LESBIAN, GAY AND BISEXUAL FIGHT.
Part of me wonders why Phyllis feels the need to ask this.
I hope she hasn’t forgotten what the answers to such questions always are.
Sounds ENDA and the HRC all over again, the supposedly “most accepting” community showing their true colors by following and using the same logic that was used by the proponents for prop 8, declaring that the “T” component of their community is inferior. As I’ve said in the past the real reason that the gays and lesbians, who include themselves within the gay and lesbian community have chosen to adopt the bisexuals and transgender is simply for social political gains within the polls.
This also fits into the vicious psychological model, wherein an adult punishes a child and in return the child punishes the family pet or a toy, only bisexuals and transgender are not illegitimate children of the gay and lesbian community.
That, and to neuter the trans movement with what appears to be acceptance. They let Phyllis, et. al., speak about trans stuff at their conferences, but as soon as Phyllis, et. al., leave the room, Gay, Inc., does everything the way it was going to do anyway.
