Wasn’t That What Trans People Were Told After SONDA Was “Out of the Way”?

Shillerico’s shitslinger can’t be bothered to address the substance of why trans people – particularly trans women – might have a problem with his cue shtick, but he has plenty of time to essentially fling the same turd a second time:

This is becoming a “Me first! Gimme! Gimme!” type of atmosphere.

[T]his utterly ridiculous and hateful bitching should end immediately. It wins no allies, it advances no causes, and just stirs up bad feelings for everyone. We are our own worst enemy and this proves it.

We?

When is inclusion wrong?

When, well, it is wrong – by being inaccurate.

Sorry, but trans people don’t expunge ourselves from LGB(t) civil rights legislation and give ourselves promotions for doing so (well, I actually can think of one trans person who might fall under that rubric, but she’s a one-woman Americans for Prosperity and, as such, doesn’t count.)  It is done for, er…, to us.

And it is done to us by…..

I’ve owned up to my role in all of this but I remain baffled why GENDA hasn’t been able to clear the Senate over the last 5 or so years, particularly now that DASA is law with GI/GE included. With marriage equality out of the way, GENDA is clearly at the top of the priority list with everything else (as far as I know) in a secondary, support-building status.

Yes, that would be Matt Foreman – head of ESPA in 2002 who signed off on New York’s gay and lesbians relegation of trans people to third class status and who, for his effort, was rewarded with a cushy national gig (as head of NGLTF – you know, the organization that sees nothing incongruous about employing a non-trans person as its trans expert?) where, because he had signed off on New York’s gay and lesbians relegation of trans people to third class status,  his 2007 call for doing nationally – via ENDA – the opposite of what he had approved of for New York was as effective as an impotent ant attempting to impregnate a petrified walrus.

I’ve owned up to my role in all of this….

Pretty easy to do when you’ve benefited from everything that has fucked trans people, eh?  Sorry dude, you’re a day 8 1/2 years late and a GENDA short.

I remain baffled why GENDA hasn’t been able to clear the Senate over the last 5 or so years…

Is he serious?

Or is he toning up his con muscles for a run at some new national gig?

With marriage equality out of the way, GENDA is clearly at the top of the priority list….

Baffled my ass.

As of Dec. 2002, was it ever supposed to be in the way of undoing what you did to us via SONDA?  I thought that undoing what you did to us via SONDA was supposed to be the top priority once SONDA was “out of the way.”  (Are you sure that there are no St. Patrick’s Day parade kerfuffels on your – or anyone else’s – non-GENDA agenda?)

If Foreman is unable to acknowledge what the gay marriage industry has done to trans rights as an aGENDA item over the last few years, then he’s in need of serious professional help – and I don’t mean in securing a new gig.

If he’s unwilling….

Well, that just leads to a follow-up: Which national organization is he shooting for?

My suggestion?

The Society for Securing a Pardon for Oscar Wilde.

If he thinks that owning up to his role in fucking trans people out of statewide civil rights protections in New York  years after the fact matters, I’m sure that he’d view expending zillions of dollars on a symbolic gesture for an obnoxious, rich gay man who has been dead for over a hundred years to be of yummy social and political import.
