Human Rights Campaign vs Dehumanizing Wrongs That Cause Pain
We at G-A-Y have been challenging "pro-family" fallacy for over four years. But now our older, richer, less-likely-to-use-terms-like-"poop pickles"-when-referring-to-anti-gay-measures, more well-connected, better-staffed, beltway-insidery cousins at the Human Rights Campaign are getting into the online feet-to-fire game. How? Well today that organization is launching a new website wherein they will highlight and call out our opposition's rampant fibbery:
EndtheLies.org features an interactive wall with videos, audio, pictures, and quotes, calling out those who maliciously use lies and misinformation to interfere with the LGBT community’s path to equality. By clicking on the panels of the wall, users can access more information about those highlighted, watch videos, add comments on multimedia discussion boards, and learn how to take action to counteract their misdeeds.
End The Lies [a project of HRC]
A nice endeavor. Though one not to be confused with End The Les, the "ex-gay" movement's Sapphic-stifling site that will be launched at an indeterminate date, or End The Leis, a radical movement to end any and all greetings that utilize flower-based necklaces. Totally different perspectives, those planned sites!
It's something that waaay overdue. While some of us will ask why it took so long (it's a good question), we also need to support this effort big time.

Agreed, Alvin. It's been fascinating to watch our national groups evolve over the past few years to the changing (changed?) media environment. I'm glad we're all coming together in some ways.

I don't think I've ever heard the difference between bloggers and major LGBT organizations put quite so well.
