Solmonese's likely reaction: 'Shit. A brick'

by Jeremy Hooper

200802290852-1For the first time in the dubious trophy's hallowed history, an LGBT group has been nominated for San Francisco Pride's "Pink Brick" Award (an annual prize meant to dishonor people and organizations that have somehow wronged the LGBT community).

The group with the unfortunate distinction of breaking this ground? The Human Rights Campaign and its head, Joe Solmonese, who have been nominated because of their perceived support for a non-inclusive ENDA:

The other nominees this year are Bill O'Reilly and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. A mismatched inclusion that for Solmonese must sorta feel like being part of a ménage à trois with a nun and a eunuch (except this one sucks more).

I can't get on board with that. Without gradation and nuance between our condemnations, we're doing a disservice to the stark realities that our community faces.
