My good buddy Bryan over at GayRightsWatch.com (They hate Christians and black people, I just have to keep saying that and it will be accepted as true) are sure that 2006 is the year that the homosexual movement takes off in Oregon.
My gut feeling is that if the Oregon legislature will not act - the movement will go from city-to-city, county-by-county until every single GLBTQ person in this state is protected by an anti-discrimination ordinance. And shit - if it were me, I'd be filing lawsuit after lawsuit until we see progress.
I know that if there was the law on the books that made assaulting people named Daniel more of a crime than assaulting someone named Bob then I sure would feel like an equal citizen... and I'll sue anyone who says otherwise!!!
Ladies and gentlemen we are no longer on the defensive. While we should never forget that we are and will continue to be under attack in some way or another - we will spend 2006 and beyond working for equality on our terms. Our community is now more visible than ever before.
More visible? Oh yeah!
I think that it's important to remember the ultimate goal of groups like Basic Rights Oregon: absolute gender neutrality, no limits on displays of sexual behavior, normalization of people who get sex changes, and if a man feels like a woman then he should be able to use the women's locker room!
In public BRO will speak of that eldely lesbian couple who has been together for 20 years as their example of what they are "protecting." They are a PR firm whose job it is to put a pretty face on degenerate behavior. They won't put the above picture on the front of their brochure.
When it comes to "gender identity" they try their best to put a pretty face on it but it's hard to take you seriously when you start talking about people expressing their gender identity in ways that "may not be considered appropriate for their assigned gender."
Do we really want an "anti-discrimination" law that says a children's toy store can't fire an employee if they show up to work looking like this:
It's time to demand that Bush fulfill his promise of a federal marriage amendment!
