The HRC Can Suck It

I'm sorry to be a bit of a sourpuss on such a happy night, but I found it galling that the HRC turned tonight's rally (at least the one in WeHo)into THEIR event. The HRC abandoned us throughout the entire Prop 8 debacle and appeared to do almost nothing regarding DOMA. While the HRC is busy throwing fancy cocktail parties to give themselves awards, most of the progress we've achieved has been due to the hard work of small local groups and the chutzpah of brave individuals who found the courage to stand up for themselves at great personal loss and sacrifice. The HRC not only takes credits for things they didn't do, they didn't even get the news right. The email I received from them claimed that the "History was made today as the U.S. Supreme Court held that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional, returning marriage equality to California." The US Supreme Court offered no such opinion; they simply ruled that the people who sought to fight the lawsuit had no standing. The "equal" sign shows that they are good at branding. History shows they haven't accomplished much at all.
