And we’re in the Marriage Derangement Syndrome pot.
[S]ome gay activists say the “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal will inevitably lead to more successes in their effort to erase the official barriers to complete parity in society.”If you can fight and die for your country, there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t be granted the full set of rights” that others have, including the ability to marry a same-sex partner, said Fred Sainz, a vice president at the Human Rights Campaign, a gay rights group. With the military’s policy repealed, he said, “Americans will deduce that on their own. We won’t have to say a thing.”
Now, to be contextually accurate (something that, admittedly, the Scampaign has little-to-no experience with being), the above quote from piece in today’s Washington Post piece was preceded by the following:
In Washington, gay rights groups say they will turn now to the “Employment Non-Discrimination Act,” which would stop employers from discriminating based on a person’s real or perceived sexual identity.
Yet, clearly, the piece was just another gradual increase of the temperature of the water in the pot – another coded telegraphing of the message that, from here on out, its all gay marriage all the time. For that’s what the gay elite wants – and the gay elite doesn’t give a damn that trans people (and more gays and lesbians than give a damn about gay marriage) need ENDA.
And we need a trans-inclusive ENDA.
But, of course, the newspaper that employs Jonathan Capehart runs a ‘where do we go from DADT repeal?’ piece in which the “we” is hermetically sealed to prevent the intrusion (much less the inclusion) of ‘the T.’
The [DADT] victory highlighted just how far American gay rights groups have come – 41 years ago, when a police raid set off the famous “Stonewall Riots” in New York, being openly gay could mean social marginalization and official persecution.
For social marginalization, of course, we now have Gay, Inc. – and its Capehartian media organs.
For official persecution? We have all of the states where Gay, Inc., successfully managed to bully legislatures into going along with ‘incremental progress’ and to con trans people and their supporters into believing that Gay, Inc., would go back and add ‘the T.’
2011 will mark a ten-year anniversary in Maryland that its gay elite will ignore. Echoing Elizabeth Birch’s lie of the time, they’ll tell you that its the tenth anniversary of Maryland becoming a “discrimination free zone.” They won’t tell you that its the tenth anniversary of gays and lesbians in Maryland arrogating to themselves the statutory right to discriminate against trans people – and they won’t tell you that they managed to imorally procure that right by lying to legislators, activists and the media by claiming that trans people were already covered under existing Maryland law.
And in the ten years since 2001?
Somehow, gay marriage hopped in front of ‘going back and adding the T’ to that 2001 law….
The rich gays of Maryland’s DC suburbs got richer….
And all good little transphobic, gay assimilationists not only in Maryland but in states from New York to Wisconsin to Massachusetts to Delaware to Massachusetts to Hawaii to Connecticut to Nevada to New Hampshire were always able to go to sleep knowing that they’d never have to wake up to a world in which they’d have to walk through an undignified life of not being legally superior to trans scum.
Think the war is over?
