"No, I would say ridiculous trans activists who are outraged, who would prefer there be no rights for employment than this. That is an example of their political stupidity. They may be very bright about other things. I don't see how anybody can see that as a rational argument right now, nor, by the way, do I think it represents five percent of our community. I don't even think it represents a majority of the transgender people. How can it possibly be - and by the way, these people don't know history, because I will tell you that Martin Luther King and the other civil rights leaders would not for a second have hesitated to accept that deal."
-- Representative Barney Frank responding to a question from the Washington Blade that the Massachusetts trans rights outraged "more outspoken trans activists, who say they are outraged because it includes employment, housing and other protections but not public accommodations protections."
