Here is a link to my interview on Ethan St. Pierre’s ongoing Hellidaze edition of TransFM.
If the Obama Administration stated in no uncertain terms that, of the DOMA repeal and public-option national healthcare, it is only politically possible to achieve one during this congressional session (1) would you accept the administration’s position and, if so, (2) would you be willing to let the DOMA repeal slide in favor of public-option national healthcare?
If the answer to either question is ‘no,’ then why are you willing to sacrifice the health and well-being of hundreds of millions of Americans in favor of your personal interest in same-sex marriage?
And if you don’t anderstand the question at all, go back and look at whatever your position might have been on trans-inclusion in ENDA in 2007. If you took the Aravosisistic position that holding out for trans-inclusion was sacrificing (a moving-goalpost number of) millions of gays and lesbians for the interests of (a diminutively moving-goalpost number of) trans people, then submit your photo to your friendly, neighborhood dictionary publisher…
for use as an illustration for the word “hypocrite.”
One never knows what one will receive on one’s cell phone from one’s niece.
I’ll probably comment more on this later, but right now I’m loking at the Judiciary Committee hearing on the bill to rectify the gay-only rights law in Connecticut.
Some putz named Peter Wolfgang – from the (so-called) Family Institute of Connecticut – is testifying. Not surprisingly, he’s fixating on cross-dressing teachers and gender flip-floppers.
Thank you Evelle Younger and Riki Wilchins.

Mara Keisling, Executive Director of the National Center for Transgender Equality is coming to the Twin Cities for a town hall meeting on transgender rights.
There goes the neighborhood.
I think some of us need a place to vent. Enjoy. I’ll start us off.
Fuck you, Barney Frank, for offering Democrats a “compromise” that allows them to pretend to do something important while still isolating part of our queer community for being “too queer.”
Update: Oh, just to make it clear: This is a thread where we can get out all our anger so that we can be more productive on this and other blogs.
