Drink Deeply

HRC Ponied up to the Transgender troth of sorrow for a big drink.

In the HRC "Back Story" this is found;

Joe Solmonese condemned the use of the "trans panic" defense in a statement:

The murder of Angie Zapata, just 18 years old, is a tragic
reminder of the hate and ignorance that threatens the transgender
community every day.

Allyson Robinson, HRC's new Associate Director of Diversity, weighed
in by calling for inclusive hate crimes protection:

"As a transgender woman, I am horrified by this crime, but as human beings, we should all be outraged."

Kelli Busey, transgender woman weighs in to say this;

As humans we are OUTRAGED that a person who identifies as transgender lowers herself to levels where she speaks for HRC.

The absolute objectification and denunciation that Joe Solmonese has directed since the demise of HR2015 at transgender people is a daily reminder to dealers of death of the perception propagated by HRC that Transgender people are somehow less than Gay and Lesbians and therefore more vulnerable.

We don't need your condolence HRC. Show some respect.

Drink have a bitter after taste?
