…except, of course, we know that the screams over this are not going to occur.
Equality California, the statewide LGBT lobbying group that’s been without an executive director since October, has hired someone to fill the position on an interim basis.
Laurie Hasencamp, 53, started the job Tuesday, February 28. She replaces Roland Palencia, who abruptly left EQCA last fall after only three months on the job.
“I’ve come out of retirement to help out for about four or five months,” said Hasencamp, who is a straight ally.
There were no screams several years ago during a time when the Rhode Island Avenue Cesspool had at least one hetero, non-trans employee and no trans employees, so why would there be any screams now?
I don’t know Ms. Hasencamp.
I have no inherent reason to doubt the characterization of her as an ally.
I also have no reason whatsoever to doubt the implication that “straight” doesn’t simply mean non-gay; it also means “non-trans.”
Many of the same people who will derisively sneer at a christianist federal judge who can’t admit that he is a racist despite damning evidence that he is will, despite all of the relevant evidence, recoil in horror at the mere suggestion that Gay, Inc. – all of it, including all of its tentacles and spores – despite being willing to use our issues when its convenient and despite being willing to let us volunteer for grunt work and despite being willing to let us donate money to gay causes, just does not like trans people and has no intention of ever regarding trans people as being equal to lesbians and gay men.
Cue the whining of certain a certain trans-exterminationist who uses the terms “anti-gay” and “homophobic” while either not knowing or not caring what they actually mean, in 3…2…1….
