Stop the perversion of the transgender movement.
(Authors note. Solutions and problems are my opinion of HRC and Frank’s view point.)
In a society where controversial subjects are often ignored a disturbing new trend has manifested itself on the Transgender community. The willingness of society to except the easiest solution at the expense of truth and honesty.
Problem. The complete political meltdown over ENDA.
Solution. Explain that due to the lack of understanding by the general public of transgender people and the associated issues a resubmission of ENDA bills would be required, one a gender exclusive bill to be submitted and one, a gender only ENDA to be submitted after transgender people could prove to Frank the votes were available to pass it. Barney Frank and HRC could solve many problems in one stroke. Frank would use his time proven transgender scape goat that since 1989 has afforded him a group of people more different and vulnerable than just gay, excuse himself from lobbing on behalf of transgender people and HRC could simply shrug its massive shoulders and say “oh well we tried”.
The resulting out cry was unexpected and fierce. Frank and HRC were caught off guard.
Problem. The entire LGBT community had united against them(hrc and frank).
Solution. Rewrite history. Offer that due to the lack of transgender efforts to lobby and the relative newness and lack of transgender efforts at educating the public, the passage of transgender rights was impossible. Frank exalted transgender people to come forth and educate.
Problem. The transgender people although downtrodden and dispirited by the recent events took to the call. We began a renewed effort to educate. We believed our best venue was in the HRC GALA Balls, held in many states through out the year. In Austin Texas at the first 2008 Ball we were invited to present our Educational Initiative. We did so. We presented 8 transgender people and their allies to a extremely welcoming and empathetic HRC membership. We were elated at such a reception and were very hopeful that future GALA’s would meet with similar success.
Solution. HRC was faced with a dilemma. They could not allow transgender people unrestricted access to there membership. A plan was formulated. HRC would substitute there own people in place of transgender advocates at the next few GALA’s. So it was done. At the next GALA in Phoenix AZ. a person described on the local HRC web page as a “local hero” was employed despite the objections of transgender advocates who wished to represent themselfs.
The outcome of this course of action was increased anger and resentment from the transgender community. We have boycotted and demonstrated HRC events. The whole of the LGB community has taken noticed of this. HRC and Barney Frank has painted itself into a corner. The country as a whole has begun writing and enforcing gender protective laws.
Problem. Barney Frank’s home state. Massachusetts had forced the transgender population into virtual exile. It was explained years ago to transgender people that the GLB population would help transgender people acquire equal rights after the resolution of the same sex marriage dilemma. A resolution had been reached but no movement had been initiated to “go back for” transgender people.
Solution. HRC would ride it’s white horse gallantly into Massachusetts and give huge sums of money to a local “transgender” group. In the case of success all accolades to HRC. In the case of failure blame could be placed on many conditions that were out of HRC’s control.
In the end America will suffer the consequence of allowing human rights to be subverted and perverted by HRC and Barney Frank. One day we all may wake to find the rights we enjoy now were a memory of the past.
