I recently ran across this video featuring my friend Dana LaRocca, for whom I have much respect. Give it a watch.
I agree with much of what Dana says. But I do take strong exception, however, with the idea she floats that Gays and Lesbians weren’t “educated” about Trans issues in 2001.
Because it is false.
We knew all too well what “Gender Identity” meant for Women in 2001. That’s why some of us worked very hard to keep it out of the Anti-Discrimination Act.
The definition of “Gender Identity” pushed by Trans Activists guarantees the elimination of sex-segregated space for Women and enshrines Sex Stereotypes into law. That’s bad for Women. It was bad for Women in 2001. It’s bad for Women in 2012.
Bad policy is bad policy. It doesn’t become “good policy” with the passage of time.
Is Dana La Rocca a transwoman?
Are you joking when you’re saying that you’re friends with her?
Yes, I am a transwoman. Yes, I am proud to call Cathy my friend.
I hope that clarifies things for you Mr. Anonymous.
Why would I joke about that? I have lots of friends. Dana is really smart and kind, even though we disagree sometimes! She has never told me to DIAF.
