GLAAD Drops “Gay & Lesbian” From Name, Will Now Be Knowm As GLAAD. Huh?
GLAAD has officially ended the usage of their full name, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation as not to alienate transsexuals. So from now on they will be known just by their old letters GLAAD.
“It is a natural progression that reflects the work GLAAD’s staff is already leading,” said [spokesman Wilson] Cruz. “We respect and honor the full name that the organization was founded with, but GLAAD’s work has expanded beyond fighting defamation to changing the culture. Our commitment to marriage equality, employment nondiscrimination, and other LGBT issues is stronger than ever, and now our name reflects our work on transgender issues as well as our work with allies.”
Okay. Now I am not being transphobic here but is this absolutely the stupidest thing that you ever heard of?
Remember two years ago the Gay and Lesbian Task Forced dropped the “gay” and “lesbian” to just the Task Force.
It is a very sad day when the words Gay and Lesbian are deemed inappropriate so a “company” can brand itself to be more mainstream and inclusive to make more money.
But perhaps in a way its a good thing.
After all what intelligent, self-respecting gay, lesbian, or transsexual wants to be associated with a bunch of gAy-list ass kissing starfuckers.
