From HRC's website:
In 31 states, it's still legal to fire someone because they're gay; in 39 states it is legal to fire someone for being transgender.
Thousands of hardworking GLBT Americans have lost their livelihoods simply because of who they are. The Human Rights Campaign is leading the charge to end this bitter injustice by passing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), a federal bill that would make it illegal to fire, refuse to hire, or refuse to promote employees simply based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
This historic legislation will be up for a vote in the U.S. House this month. But the radical right is flooding lawmakers with misinformation about ENDA.
You can set the facts straight. Send your lawmakers a message today. Make sure they know passing ENDA is the American thing to do!
This is the letter HRC will send to your Congressman in your name:
Unbelievable! They are passing off HR. 3685 as transgender inclusive (it's not, gender identity has NEVER been included in 3685) , and asking people to support it! So much for their claim of not supporting 3685, but not opposing it. This is FULL FRONTAL SUPPORT.
I wish the David Smith, Joe Solmonese, and the rest of the HRC crew would just be honest and have the balls to say, "WE DON'T SUPPORT YOU."
Is a duplicitous ally any better than an honest bigot? I'd rather have someone spit in my face, than smile and knife me in the back.
HRC has removed the page in question, but you can see it here
In my previous post about the Transgender Day or Remembrance, a couple of commenters said that I'm angry and that "HRC is on your side in the struggle for equality and human dignity for all persons. We are your brothers and sisters."
On my side, eh? So much for that notion.
