Lies, slurs, job discrimination—Traditional Values? Really?!

by Jeremy Hooper

With the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) back in play, the rabidly extreme Traditional Values Coalition is rehashing a game plan that the org has used several times in the past. It goes like this:

  • Find a photo of a transgender human being
  • Viciously slight said human being with words like "she-male"
  • Claim that there's a "Dirty Thirty" grouping of scientifically-recognized sexual orientations, even though this is an outright lie (*what TVC claims as sexual orientations are actually recognized as paraphilias, behaviors that exist within the spectrum of sexual orientation)
  • Claim that TVC has power, even though the far-right itself now tends to ignore this particular group
  • Ask for money

Here's the 2012 version:

Gotta disagree, TVC. Because when I read this, written by the kind of person who thinks "she-male" is an acceptable term, thinks lying about science is a perfectly okay thing to do, thinks lifting a picture like this and using it in a vicious fundraising campaign is a nice practice, and who thinks looking to people you don't know and calling them "deeply troubled" is a fair assessment? Not gonna lie—that's the kind of person who I don't want teaching my children.
