I Have A Better Idea

From a Maryland all-gay-marriage-all-the-time page:

Well, I have a better idea.

Send this text to Maryland senators:

Dear Senator,

As your constituent, I’m calling on you to oppose The Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Protection Act (SB116). Please understand that I am not homophobic and I actually do believe that same-sex couples should eventually enjoy the right to marry.

However, in 2001 when the Maryland Legislature enacted a gay rights law that did not protect transgender people gay activists in Maryland promised transgender people that they would work to ensure that Maryland would enact legislation to ensure that transgender people have the same ability to compete for employment based on their qualifications that gays, lesbians an bisexuals were given. 

Thus far, those promises have proven to be empty. 

Stand on the right side of history by not rewarding political trickery and deception with an additional legislative victory that will simply ensure that there is no political will to address anti-transgender discrimination in Maryland for another decade. 

Gays and lesbians WANT marriage.  Trans people NEED to be able to live and work without fear.

Support the passage of transgender equality in this legislative session before the matter of same-sex marriage is addressed in any fashion.

Thank you for your consideration of this important issue.
