I wasn't going to post anything about the Logo/HRC Presidential Forum. I've read most of the blogs and I felt as though all sides were represented and I honestly didn't feel like beating a dead horse. That is, until that horse sprang to life and galloped into my mail box. This afternoon I opened my mail, half amused to see a letter with the HRC logo on it, but then my head exploded. Apparently, I can get a Visa credit card, embossed with that beautiful HRC Equal sign and every time I use it to make a purchase, Visa will donate money to the Human Right's Campaign. Isn't that wonderful? I was fired from my job because I am transsexual but I live in a state where same sex marriage is legal, I wonder if they'll still give me a credit card.
I don't know why but I expected better from HRC this time (I must have been in a brief coma). During the Presidential Forum, The Human Rights Campaign treated transgender people with the same respect they always have. Transgender concerns received just as much attention as the bark beetle and judging by the attention that we both received it seems as though we are both going to be exterminated.
