NOM now trying to scare America with talk of trans inclusion

by Jeremy Hooper

Did you know that transgender men and women need same-sex couples to have marriage rights in order to make a case for inclusion? And did you know that transgender rights are therefore a fitting talking point for an organization with a focus supposedly limited to marriage policy to use in their fundraising emails?

That is, after all, the message the National Organization For Marriage, the most on-the-ropes special interest group in American politics is sending to its supporters. After a banner graphic that looks like the Riddler's rights, NOM begins it's latest beg for cash like so:

Better ways to answer NOM's headline:

  • Fifty state equality

  • Political irrelevancy for NOM

  • NOM's bad placement in the Museum of Civil Rights History

  • Foreclosure on NOM offices

  • A need to get jobs not built around discrimination

  • The food world's triumphant reclaiming of "om nom nom nom" without the baggage this pro-discrimination organization has placed on it

  • A far more peaceful America
