I recently ran across this video featuring my friend Dana LaRocca, for whom I have much respect. Give it a watch.
I agree with much of what Dana says. But I do take strong exception, however, with the idea she floats that Gays and Lesbians weren’t “educated” about Trans issues in 2001.
Because it is false.
We knew all too well what “Gender Identity” meant for Women in 2001. That’s why some of us worked very hard to keep it out of the Anti-Discrimination Act.
The definition of “Gender Identity” pushed by Trans Activists guarantees the elimination of sex-segregated space for Women and enshrines Sex Stereotypes into law. That’s bad for Women. It was bad for Women in 2001. It’s bad for Women in 2012.
Bad policy is bad policy. It doesn’t become “good policy” with the passage of time.
