HRC Exposes this hate group: “NOM is trying to connect it back to Prop 8 because they want you to think that this is well within its stated cause of “protecting marriage.” But it isn’t. This new law has absolutely nothing to do with marriage—zero. zilch. nada.—and everything to do with making the school day safer for one of the nation’s most vulnerable populations of young people. NOM’s choice to endorse this wholly unrelated measure is just further proof that NOM’s agenda is an anti-LGBT one that never had any intention on stopping at our marriage rights.
HRC reports that NOM wouldn’t even exist if not for the 10 top donors who contributed $8,326,000 or 90.5% of its declared revenue in 2010.
NOM’s signature gatherers won’t mention that there has never been a lawsuit brought against a transgender student alleging any improprieties in public accommodations but they will parrot this paragraph from NOM’s website, They hope to instill a sense of dread in the uninformed and pander to bigots:
From NOM’s webpage:
“Not even two short months after the US Supreme Court refused to uphold the right of over 7 million Californians to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman, the California Legislature passed AB 1266, the school co-ed bathroom law,” said Brown. “They are forcing our school children to be exposed in showers and bathrooms to members of the opposite sex who claim a ‘gender identity’ with that sex.”
*Trigger warning. The CNN talking head incorrectly says a transgender person ‘chooses’ which restroom they want to use suggesting a transgender person could make daily reversals of there gender. Undeterred by her blatant bias Masen makes a great case for transgender student equality.
If anything NOM’s latest hate campaign should unite our community as never before. For the kids.
