First, congratulations to our gay and lesbian friends in the United States, who have won marriage equality thanks to a Supreme Court ruling today.
With that battle more or less finally out of the way, right-wing organizations and others who have been fighting against same-sex marriage may turn the full focus of their exclusionary beliefs and bigotry on transgender people.
Because, heaven forbid that the right-wingers try to do something about real problems in America, like homelessness, hunger, the proliferation of guns, industrial pollution and so on.
No, they justify their organizations’ existence, and their fundraising campaigns, by attacking minority groups, even if they know they will ultimately lose their battles.
So, while the L & G people under the rainbow umbrella may have scored a huge victory today, transgender people should brace themselves for a right-wing storm, and the wrath that accompanies it.
