The Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization, today applauded the formation of the House of Representatives’ LGBT Equality Caucus. The bipartisan Caucus was announced this morning by its founding members, including Caucus co-chairs, Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA).
Dear Dear Fellow Transgender and ALL Gender diverse People. Barney Frank is now going to advocate for YOU so a gender inclusive ENDA is passed in 2009? Lets look at recent remarks from Barney Frank. On 10.11.07 Barney Frank made it perfectly clear he was not going to support a gender inclusive ENDA.
In The House on 11.07.07 Frank smugly argues that to include a "particular group", meaning the gender variant, is to prevent progress.
Traditional Values Coalition published a article intittled;
"Rep. Barney Frank Attempts To Throw His Cross-dressing Allies Under The Train".
Barney Frank either authored the Values article or is a reader because he used the train analogy in his last Trans-bashing tirade of 05.02.08 in the Just Out issue:
Part of the problem, I have to say, is this: I've never seen a worse job of lobbying done by the transgender community. They seem to think that all they had to do was to get the gay and lesbian community to say "OK." I think they thought that this was a train, and that they were a car on the train. I said to them, "You've got to work this, you've got to lobby people." They did a terrible job of lobbying, and so we didn't have the votes.
With the exception of writing one Bill that he subsequently shot down Frank has never had a single good thing to say about transgender people. Do not be the donkey that this man rides. Worse yet if the man SLAPPED YOU don't give him your money! Take some pride in yourself. Pick yourself up, dust yourself off. You are the best that society has to offer.
