Queerty is better as a member
It must be sad for the GOP to have 11 year olds far more eloquent, intelligent and better for society than all the Paul Ryan’s in the world put together.
Bravo! As a Trans woman, I too felt that Trans people were completely left out of the President’s inauguration speech and celebration. While I applaud his mentioning the need for Gay and Lesbian Equality, I felt that Gender Variant people, often still the most discriminated minority group, were completely forgotten. Does Pres.Obama even realize that Transgender does not equal Gay? Frankly, I was not impressed at all. Supporting Gay Rights is not a particularly politically risky move in 2013 but supporting Trans Rights certainly is breaking new ground.
@Nikkidane: Actually, by referencing Stonewall, we has referencing an event in which trans folks participated, some as leaders. I think not including trans people as an explicit mention is a wise political move, and I personally don’t have a problem with it, as long as the laws and changes he proposes are trans-inclusive. Actions speak louder than words.
@Thedrdonna: I agree with your take on this.
