Is there no bottom to the black hole of ignorance exhibited among the “all or nothing” herds? Not as long as Bill Perdue, Queerty, and Matt Foreman are around would be one answer.
ENDA DOES NOT APPLY TO THE MILITARY! DADT would STILL be on the books. And, further, DADT was better than what existed before it. And, just as with ENDA it was NOT–like so many seem to believe and certainly want others to believe–simply a matter of Two Choices: DADT or blanket acceptance of out gays in the military. I respect anyone’s right to have different OPINIONS, but facts are facts. And one of the simplest is that trans-inclusive supporters are guilty of the very thing they accuse others of: insisting gays and lesbians give up their potential for federal job protection [when the potential for passage anytime soon of protections for them, too, is fantasy at best]. Itâ€™s like your neighbor pounding on your door and screaming, â€œMy kids are hungry so you have to kill yours.â€ Sorry, folks, but gays and lesbians canâ€™t pay to house and feed themselves [and their very real children, most prevalently among lesbians] with checks written solely on your thrift store self-righteousness.
But only distortions matter to Perdue, who like most tin pot socialists plays fast and loose with facts. Propaganda is their favorite weapon. Here he is, slithering forth yet again from beneath his rock, autogenerating yet again his endless catalogue of exaggerations and lies:
â€œextreme right wing of our communityâ€
â€œgrudge against transsexualsâ€
â€œhurts us allâ€
â€œHRC…shattering loss of incomeâ€
â€œdouble-crossing Democratic schemeâ€
â€œBotox Pelosiâ€ [carefully, Billy Bud, youâ€™re oozing awfully close to misogyny]
â€œenjoy victimizing transgendered peopleâ€
â€œright wing local gay papersâ€
â€œoverwhelming strength of oppositionâ€
and he has the balls to accuse others of â€œhysteriaâ€????
He carefully refuses to acknowledge that Frank systematically and logically shot down most of the claims of Lambda Legal. And any remaining having nothing to do with the possibility of actually passing such a bill no matter how much screeching you do; no matter how much you confuse repeating the same false, hysterical, slanderous claims over and over again with reality.
Why list so few of the Holy 300 groups, Billy Bud? [How long will it before they equate them with the 300 Spartans?] Maybe because most of them no one outside their own circle jerk has ever heard of.
You could add all of the members of all of these groups together, even those dishonestly representing themselves as unique not overlapping-membership organizations, and you wouldnâ€™t come close to representing ONE-TENTH of the gay and lesbian population of the US. But excuse me, I have to get back to reading the annual report of the Al-Fatiha Foundation for LGBTIQ Muslims. Iâ€™ve never seen one printed on a single index card before.
