Sometimes I really wish that I wouldn’t have to write posts like this.
Yesterday we had Joe Solmonese shamelessly stepping forward and trying to take the credit for the DADT Compromise Repeal passing and give it to HRC and now today we have HRC chief flack Fred Sainz that a future strategy fro when it comes to passing other LGBT equality legislation, like the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, DOMA and full equality might not even be needed. AT ALL
“If you can fight and die for your country, there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t be granted the full set of rights [that others have, including the ability to marry a same-sex partner].” And now that DADT is repealed, “Americans will deduce that on their own. We won’t have to say a thing.”
Autumn Sandeen over at Pam’s House Blend points out, this is the equivalent of saying “we can sit back in our easy chairs and wait for equality to to occur on auto-pilot.” Don’t worry, everyone! That trans-inclusive ENDA will be here tomorrow, and the next day DOMA will be repealed, and then the Uniting American Families Act, and by New Year’s we’ll be throwing gay weddings at the White House. We won’t have to say a thing!
So please if you want a trans inclusive ENDA to be another two decade battle give to the HRC,
