It’s a curious turn-about in an extremely bizzaro-world presidential election season.
Democrats being scolded by Democrats for being less inclusive than the Republicans.
In his convention speech, Donald Trump proclaimed,
As your President, I will do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology.
There were wild cheers from the floor of Republican hard cores, as there should have been. No one can condone such violence against anyone.
But this story from Buzzfeed’s national LGBT correspondent shows some Democrats are greatly miffed that the DNC couldn’t be as inclusive. They excluded the “Q” from their party’s LGBT platform. David Braun, a DNC platform committee member complained,
It is very unfortunate that queer people have to fight to be identified properly by a party that is supposedly paying lip service to our community.
Qs under the bus. The larger question is why is neither standing up for the rest of those in the LGBT alphabet soup. Why should the other Q and the IAAP2Ss get thrown under there as well?
Could it be that who can really keep up with it all anymore?
