U.S. Dept. of Labor Observes 'Transgender Day of Remembrance'
CNS News ^ | Nov. 20, 2012 | Elizabeth Harrington

Posted on 11/20/2012 7:11:08 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

(CNSNews.com) – The U.S. Department of Labor is officially observing Nov. 20 as “The Transgender Day of Remembrance."

"The Transgender Day of Remembrance [TDOR] will be commemorated in cities and countries around the world today, reflecting on those who have died as a result of fear, hate and transphobia,” Labor Secretary Hilda Solis said in a statement on Tuesday.

"I stand proudly today--and every day--as an ally to the transgender community and to every person and family impacted by anti-transgender bullying and violence,” she said. “Transgender people are part of the diversity that America celebrates today and they, like every American, deserve to live without fear of prejudice or violence.”

“I hope that this year's commemoration will serve as an opportunity to shine a brighter light on both progress made and the challenges ahead," Solis said.

That Transgender movie was really something! A car changed into a robot! What? They don’t know what they are? They do know what they are but they want to be the other? Well my dog would like to be a canary so he could sing, but it ain’t gonna happen.

Transphobia? Well, that’s a new one.

Trans == across, beyond, through.
Phobia == fear

So transphobia would be fear of the across, beyond, or through.

I know it scares the hell out of me.

That was my first thought, too, when I read this crap--that it's hard to believe this is NOT satire.

In the dead of winter.

I think it falls sometime between Bestiality Week and Body Modification Month.

After those bogus stats they sent out to get Barry Benghazi “reelected”, I kind of figured that they were all a bunch of homosexuals.

A companion article to the MA one I just pinged out. Atheists have fits because little children are taken to see Charlie Brown's Christmas. And then OTOH, our own government creates a "holiday" celebrating the vilest of perversions. I think it's about time that every single one of us starts speaking out loudly and acting on our conscience. They can't put tens of millions of us in jail all at once.

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

Good quote, but too modern for my taste.

This is more to my liking:

Pope Saint Felix III

"Not to oppose error is to approve it;
and not to defend truth is to suppress it;
and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it,
is no less a sin than to encourage them."

Welcome to 2012 America... demented and depraved.

What a grotesque and embarrassing end this country is decaying into, after two centuries of pioneers building it and patriots fighting and dying for it. Seems like such a slap in their faces for all their sacrifices. Transgender celebration day? Good Lord.

That is very beautifully said, I will add to my quotes collection. When did Pope Saint Felix III live?

I read the headline and thought the transgender day of remembrance was a day they all remembered when they had real sexual organs instead of the fake ones they have now.

The days before mutilation.

I’m setting a date next month for “Bestiality remembrance day”, for all those who have died during love-making with a horse. Those poor souls who were only searching for eternal bliss.

Unless and until we get Republinans with strong moral principles who understand the intent of the Constitution AND have courage and gust, we’re totally sunk.

And if only a tiny handful of Rs get the courage/principles necessary, then another party has to happen.
