  1. I have Personally sent tweets to various news agencies who insist on reporting that it’s what Cathy SAID rather than what the Corp/Cathy DID – i.e. spend millions on support to Hate Groups. So far I have not seen one correct report from Main Stream Media and HRC has, indeed, NOT helped.

    I think there needs to be some back-pedaling on this, Will. Look at this article: http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/calling-out-hate-when-we-see-it/2012/08/20/0f9725cc-eb02-11e1-a80b-9f898562d010_story.html

    And to judge someone fully by one single interview with Signorile, is a bit over the top. I met Chad and he is/WILL bring a new air to the HRC and that is why I stand behind it.

      You are enntitled to your opinon and I am titled to mine. But I’m not going to backpeddle.

      It took Mr Griffin a full week to write an Op-Ed after much criticism from within the LGBT community but still the HRC as an organization has done nothing “official” since after the FRC shooting except issue a sympathy statement. And they’ve let every anti-gay right winger run wild. And lets not forget the complete silence with Chick-fil-A. One OpEd does not make for “new air” at HRC while theres so much going on that they are not fully addressing.

      Kudo’s to Chad for writing the Op-Ed at least even if its late. But now lets see HRC do something.

What do you think?
