From the Traditional Values Coalition:
Transgender activists are concerned that gay activist Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) will throw them under the bus like he did before when ENDA came up for a vote.
The "gender identity" section of the previous ENDA was tossed out in order to secure passage in the House. The she-males are outraged that this might happen once again.
We are winning the battle against ENDA, but we can't stop putting pressure on Representatives until the bill is pulled from consideration.
TAKE ACTION: Tell your legislators to vote NO on ENDA.
More exciting news about ENDA after the jump.
Well, she might be right. She and her group are exploiting the division between gay and transgender people, and trying to pile-drive a huge wedge in between.
Roll Call, the DC magazine that all the politicians and their staffs read just published an article suggesting that legislators are dropping like flies because of the transgender inclusion.
All Republicans, though I do know of one Blue Dog who's confused by the whole "gender identity" thing. One might even say that he's "gender-confused."
And there's no doubt that anti-ENDA forces are going to try to make a motion to get "gender-confused" Blue Dogs to vote to send the whole hot mess back to Committee to strip out the gender language.
So, if you love Andrea Lafferty and the Traditional Values Coalition, here's your do's and don'ts.
DO NOT call your Congressmember today.
DO ASSUME that they're already for or against, so no need for you to make your voice heard.
DO NOT email Congress.
DEFINITELY DO NOT click here to tell them to support ENDA, HR 3017, including both sexual orientation and gender identity.
As a matter of fact, take the week off. We don't really need to fight for ENDA. Andrea Lafferty is fighting for you.
