Just in from Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders:
Just so we know where our "fierce advocate" and his Department of Justice stand on LGBTQ equality today....
In case any doubts were left as to how the Obama administration would direct itself vis-à-vis defense of anti-gay Federal statutes whose legality and/or constitutionality is being questioned in court:
His Department of Justice is prepared-- and is preparing-- to defend these discriminatory statutes' constitutionality in court.
The "fierce advocate" label has just flown off in the wind. As long as this administration's political capital is in danger, we are back under the bus.
Enjoy the view of the rear axle as the tires run over our heads, my fellow gays and lesbians and bisexuals and trans folk. We have been judged as politically expendable. And less than full citizens. And less than fully human. Again. And as usual.
