  1. THIS IS APPALLING AND REALLY DISGUSTING!!!!! I was just putting together my will and was leaving them a good amount of cash that I worked hard for and hopped it would help out in changing peoples ideas but no more. I have crossed them totally off my list. The whole thing gross’ me out. I think I will stick to small local charities that I know will appreciate it. Really, what a bunch of pigs…shame on them. This is very upsetting how greedy they are.

  2. Because those of use not in the 1% may not be aware of the phrase – a gross up means that unlike you saps – their salaries are reimbursed yet again for taxes and other deductions. For two reasons –

    1. Paying taxes is for suckers.
    2. It makes the salaries look smaller in the press

    An incentive bonus for a new employee…and an unspecified bonus? Jeez – there must be a very happy, very rich old man out there somewhere.

    But, just for giggles. the Williams Inst numbers would seem to indicate trans people are about 9% of the lgbt community. We have 0% of the jobs at HRC.

    First question from a Republican Sen to Allison Herwit (their Legislative Director) – so how many of these transgender people do you all employ? Are you one of them? No. Well are you gay? No. So – your group will hire a straight woman before one of them? And you have 150 or so employees? And you want to lecture us?
    Honey – that dawg won’t hunt,

What do you think?
