    Hey! A transgender fundraiser for a transgender-only group. I guess sometimes we are LGBT and sometimes we are just T, huh?

    Actually, I support this fundraiser and this trans group. You see, LGBT is and always was a politically convenient lie. These are 2 discrete communities with different goals and interests, which only occasionally overlap. It is entirely proper for trans people to have a trans-focused legal defense fund w/o it being distorted and diluted by “LGBT”. It is not homophobic or hateful for them to do so. But the same goes for gay groups. We should be pursuing our own priorities, like ENDA, rather than try to sustain a politically correct myth.
