http://denverwrangler.com/news/open_letter_from_the_pink_panthers_movement1. Colorado law only says that establishments must ensure people embibing are of age. 2. I am happy that someone went to the Denver Wrangler and had a good time. I don't doubt they did on that particular day. 3. Expressing a view is not slanderous. I am positive that if I or Cristin Williams or any of the mainstream publishers slandered the Wrangler they wouldn't have hesitated in bringing a lawsuit.
What followed has just as deplorable. The Denver Wrangler pressured the members of the charities it helps to support by telling individuals they would be unwelcome if they talked about that incident or even remained friends with the victim.
The Denver Wranglers paid representives then went after myself and the TransAdvocate where my planetransgender article was cross posted.
They demanded we take down the pictures and in private messages demanded I delete my article from facebook. They succeeded in pressuring facebook to censure my article and deleted Vito's Youtube video. But their bullying only served to increase my resolve to stand with Vito.
To my knowlage anyone who has dared to question the Pink Panthers to this point about there reaction to the Wrangler incident has been banned from their page. I am asking that you question this as well. Would you belong to a group who whould summarily banned
I doubt it. Like there letter said on the Wrangler post they claim to welcome dialog.
Will they welcome yours?
