"I very much hope that the Commonwealth will once again show its aversion to prejudice and its compassion for people who have been its victims, and extend to people who are transgender the same legal rights that the rest of us now enjoy."

-- Representative Barney Frank in written testimony submitted in favor of a Massachusetts bill to extend discrimination protections to cover transgender people.

Funny how Fascist Barney is giving support only for the Massachusettes bill. So what is his agenda now just let States decide on their own on Trans Rights???? How ironic, this must be his new approach to no longer have to Sponsor ENDA and a easier way to kick the Trans Community under the bus. They say not to trust politicians and he is the snake that the Trans Community should not trust.
