    RE:You Article; “Gay Congressmen defends his record on trans rights”Based on my recollection of Barney Frank’s early sponsorship of ENDA back in the 90’s, he never really intended to include “Trans” people in ENDA. I honestly believe he doesn’t like, or care for “Trans” people. I am also very disappointed in the Democratic Party’s House and Senate Leadership, Pellosi and Kennedy etal for selling “Trans” people down the river without any real debate, protest or fight against their Republican opponents.As for Matt Foreman’s previous position on “Tans” inclusion in the NY State version of ENDA, during his tenure at Empire State Pride, Matt came to understand the wisdom of a “Trans” inclusive bill for the protection of the Gay community. It is however, clear to me, based on his history, Barney Frank, never wavered from his previous negative views of “Trans” people and his intent to include them as protected class in ENDA.

    Barney Frank acted no less the bigot, as did the racists a half century earlier banning the negro from using a public toilet. He and the militant gay thugs have an agenda, which is using, and vilifying, the Transegender community to distract the public from their back room pandering for power. Every ten minutes a child is born, 1/2500, in which the doctor cannot determine the sex, or gender. These children are Intersex; they are born into a life of not male or female. Likewise in similar fashion the Transsexual is identified with a Bioneurological congenital condition. They too are locked into something not quite so clearly defined as male, or female. The best we can do is live as close to what we seem to believe we are. That may preclude the wants, and often ignorant and bigoted beliefs of others. In what case do we ignore this issue and abandon the children who now cannot hide? How can anyone continue in hate and prejudice so as to deny simple equality and justice? It is either time for change and understanding, or simply wheedle out the Transgender element as inhuman and adopt the final solution as Hitler visualized? Not an easy thing to resolve, but one that is present and will not go away.
