A group of self serving political dilatants.
If you’re a known local or national celebrity, they take the time to make you feel included, if you’re an unknown someone who wants to make a difference in the world around you for GLBTG community forget it with this group.
While Elizabeth Birch is gone, her culture of oozing up to celebrity and media figures is boring, counter productive and very much alive...
Lest we forget Anne Heche, and her front and center roll at HRC, only to claim she was crazy for a couple of years and never Gay.
Any organization that thinks buildings and rooms in them with names of big money donors is more important than helping to educate the general population about how truly normal and some might even say regular it is to be gay, is not in touch with what is happening outside of Washington DC.
Don’t ask and don’t tell is a hallmark failure of HRC and their lobbying efforts.
As is the defense of marriage act or acts taking root all over the nation.
This collisal failure is from an ill conceived notion that pushing on the idea of marriage in a legal frame work is better than taking small steps like ensuring domestic partner benefits in all 50 states.
Marriage is a religious institutions stamp on life, is the church the one collecting taxes and barring life long partners from making critical medical and familial decisions? No, it is the government, and a local or federal government that disallows any form of same sex union as a reaction to a political push for a religious acknowledgement is the fault of those institutions pressing the wrong agenda.
GLBTG people need measured consistent progress in securing their rights as citizens and human beings in this country, any step backwards like the ban on “marriage” in so many states, is inherently HRC’s fault, they have pushed the issues too far too fast, and left us with no recourse. So much for the millions of dollars in political contributions, and their effect on your daily lives.
Shame on anyone that thinks “Marriage” in a religious sense backed up by a state license is better than having practical access to medical insurance, the right to inherit, the right to visitation, or the right to decide life and death matters for their partner, is as vital as domestic partner benefits is when taken in the real context of daily life.
Now my friends we have years of work to undo what has been done by the few that think the word marriage was more important than the practical daily life issues facing GLBTG couples and singles in the entire country.
Pick your charities wisely, not based on starry eyed celebrity. HRC is lost and moving further away from the reality of life outside the beltway.
