FRC back to scanning Google Images for drag queens; ENDA must be back in news

by Jeremy Hooper

This is the Family Research Council's latest anti-ENDA (Employment Nondiscrimination Act) graphic:

Wu13F11 Normal
[FRC]

High-minded as always, that FRC.

The person in the image is clearly in full drag regalia and is likely not even transgender. But that of distinction doesn't matter to FRC. They want you to believe that protecting transgender men and women from the collective cruelty that is employment nondiscrimination means that all standards of behavior and dress are then removed from the American businessplace. They want you to believe that ENDA will make it so that all business owners must accept a female impersonator's performance costume as acceptable workplace attire, whatever the job at hand. They want you to think that being trans means being over-the-top and campy at all moments in life, and that when you go to the DMV or bank in a world with ENDA as law, you might have to wait for the worker on the clock to lip-sync for her life before that employee performs the duties of the job. They want you to believe that special passes that no LGBT person is seeking will become everyday occurrences.

Their crude agenda shows us more reason why we must protect LGBT people from nasty discrimination, not less.
