The World Series to ENDA All Series

October 22, 2007

World Series 2007: The team from a state with a trans-inclusive civil rights law vs. the team from a state with a transphobic gay-only law.

Or…

COL

Vs.

BOS

 Yeh, okay, there is that lingering concern about the Rockies preferring players with “character” (and we all know what that’s a codeword for.)

Still, I see it as Colorado (the state) vs. Massachusetts (the state) – a state with a trans-inclusive law vs. a state that not only has a transphobic gay-only law but also has given us the congressman who wants to pass a federal vrsion of his state’s trsnsphobic gay-only law.

Rockies in 5.


The (Apparently) Self-Loathing Trans Presidential Candidate

October 22, 2007

And – no – I’m not talking about Hedda Lettuce.

This isn’t directly tied to ENDA – nevertheless, a hat-tip goes out to Autumn Sandeen over at Pam’s House Blend for pointing this out: Rudy ‘I Own 9/11 and Three Marriage Licenses’ Giuliani decided to use trans people as a punch line in defense of his position against an anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment.

I don’t think we need a constitutional amendment at this point.

I did 210 weddings when I was mayor of New York City. So I have experience doing this. They were all men and women.

(LAUGHTER)

I hope.

(APPLAUSE)

GIULIANI: You got to give me a little slack here. It was New York City, you know, but it’s not just a religious institution.

Thst’s enough from Rudy.  Now, I’ll turn to Autumn: “As a transwoman, I’ll remember that joke — and I’ll especially remember it when it comes time to vote.”

Indeed.
