HRC expands Trans Advocacy while NCTE stumbles

HRC expands Trans Advocacy while NCTE stumbles

Did the Human Rights Campaign just kick the NCTE to the curb? Or is their expansion into Trans advocacy an act of unequivocal L-G-B-stand with the T mercy? Two facts. The NCTE just cut staff leaving a barebone skeleton crew of questionable viability and (by many accounts) questionable moral ethics. HRC just announced an all-encompassing […]

The Danger of Voting Anti-Establishment (in 2016)

The Danger of Voting Anti-Establishment (in 2016)

I just learned that Trump has not received the endorsement of a single major newspaper since the primary. Not one. Zero. Zippo. Nada. Meanwhile, the list of major newspapers endorsing Clinton, even those with century-long traditions of endorsing Republicans, continues to grow. Many of these same editorial boards question if their presidential endorsements carry any […]

In Limbo or Worse: US Military members who transitioned since July 2015

Last July Defense Secretary Ashton Carter issued a DOD statement announcing that a study had been initiated to examine the possible integration of transgender service members. Calling the present policy “outdated” and citing the end of “don’t ask, don’t tell’ . Sec.

#CivilRights Campaign by Mass AG for #TransRights. Join her by sharing #EveryoneWelcome

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey’s campaign #EveryoneWelcome is all about a #CiviRights bill allowing Transgender legal access to Public accommodations.

But the state adopted a limited #CiviRights bill in 2012 which was stripped of […]

Can we stop being willing victims, for just one week?

Can we stop being willing victims, for just one week?

The posting about the 43 transgender deaths in the first seven weeks of 2015 was viewed 65,000 times in the first six days. However successful in highlighting this tragedy it’s also turned out to be very controversial. I have outraged some of our readers by including these two paragraphs in the original post… “Most were […]

Greensboro NC adopts a Trans-Crow ordinance, a bad way to go.

Greensboro North Carolina just adopted an ordinance which seeks to segregate transgender people in public accommodations EQNC and HRC call this historic. We call it getting thrown under the bus ala Massachusetts. The changes in Greensboro include adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression to a list of enumerated categories in three ordinances — fair […]
