When something gay-specific doesn’t bear as much fruit as gays want, here’s how one can see it characterized on The John’s site:
Civil Rights Lite?
A microsopic sliver of the LGB (no T; none at all; quit spinning; DADT has nothing to do with T) populace bullies its way to the front of the civil rights line, forces every other issue of concern for the vast majority of LGBT people to wait while Joe Solmonese (and the rest of the gays who now don’t have to worry about employment discrimination in their personally preferred profession – and all of the obsenely rich bastards who never did) has all of the caviar and champagne stains drycleaned out of his panties, and now that microscopic sliver says its not enough…
and, of course, the Greek chorus follows suit. The John’s Joe is pimping this:
Civil Rights Lite by Anu Bhagwati:
Repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is well underway and Certification is within reach; however, LGBT servicemembers have much to fear after hearing yesterday’s Pentagon brief on Implementation.
The DoD has left the safety and welfare of LGBT servicemembers to chance by pronouncing that a focus on “Leadership, Professionalism, Discipline and Respect,” will make for a seamless transition to a post-repeal military. This impressive-sounding mantra lacks as much real-world substance as the military’s “Zero Tolerance Policy” slogan, used to crack down on a variety of ills that still continue to plague the military, ranging from driving under the influence to sexual assault of servicemembers.
To summarize: Military leadership has no intention of covering LGBT servicemembers as a “protected class” under Military Equal Opportunity (MEO) policy
Well, exactly why would anyone think that any T servicemembers would be coverd by such a thing?
The repeal of DADT did nothing for them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh yes, I know…
I just broke a Gay Blog, Inc. rule. I pointed out an improper conflation of LGB & T.
But, since this is a gay-declared ‘double down’ site, let me double down – with what I’d started out this post with.
A microsopic sliver of the LGB (no T; none at all; quit spinning; DADT has nothing to do with T) populace bullies its way to the front of the civil rights line, forces every other issue of concern for the vast majority of LGBT people to wait while Joe Solmonese (and the rest of the gays who now don’t have to worry about employment discrimination in their personally preferred profession – and all of the obsenely rich bastards who never did) has all of the caviar and champagne stains drycleaned out of his panties, and that microscopic sliver saying that what they managed to get with their bulling its not enough is supposed to be acknowledged as…
Civil Rights Lite?
No one can legitimately claim that there are more LGB people who have made the choice to desire the military as their job than there are trans people overall all throughout the country in all professions.
Yet, in 2007, when that percentage of the American (and Americal LGBT) populace stood up and challenged the entrenched gay greed and deceit that immorally carved us out of ENDA, the spewers of hatred at The John’s site declared that we were holding all of the good, clean, gender-conforming gays and lesbians hostage to our silly desires.
So lets lay this out…
A significant – though, yes, minority – percentage of LGBT Americans is told that we deserve to live with the fear of discrimination in all employment for some indeterminate period of time (Wisconsin is a good benchmark: 29 year ans counting!) in order for good, clean, gender-conforming gays and lesbians – many (perhsps even most) of whom already live where their non-federal employment concerns are protected against discrimination – can have yet another legal right that most of them don’t need chiseled into law, and that significant percentage of LGBT Americans is told to bend over and take it for a team that refuses to acknowledge that were even on it.
But when the microscopic militaristic sliver of LGB America gets what it demands and then declares that that isn’t enough, that’s being forced to accept ‘Civil Rights Lite.’
“Civil Rights, NOT!” for trans people? AOK!
“Civil Rights, Non-Perfection” for gays who want one specific type of job? Unacceptable.
I’m glad to see what’s actually in the playbook.
The term “sacrifice”?
Hint: It doesn’t involve a bunt.
