Transgender Lobby Day at Mass. State House: Chairman of Judiciary Committee calls opponents of transgender bill "ignorant"
Says "Get over it" if transgenderism makes you uncomfortable!

This was a truly frightening experience on many levels.
They were at the State House for a "Transgender Lobby Day", an hour-long series of speeches followed by individual lobbying of legislators. Their goal is passage of the radical Transgender Rights and Hate Crimes Bill (H1728), that would force blanket normalization of cross-dressing and transgender behaviors throughout society and impose fines and even jail terms for those who publicly voice dissent. The bill had a public hearing this past July, but has been stalled in committee since then. The master (?) of ceremonies was a woman with a beard wearing a suit and tie (see photo below).
Sen. Creem told the gathering:
"There are many opponents who feel it's controversial and who misunderstood the bill or are ignorant of the issues and don't want to hear the truth because that's always a fact: it's better not to hear the truth. They're just uncomfortable. Get over it! . . . We know that hatred can come from misunderstanding and ignorance."
You can watch it here:
Note that Creem accepts unquestioningly the shockingly abusive concept of "transgender children". No doubt, she agrees with Dr. Norman Spack's (Boston Children's Hospital) practice of injecting pre-pubescent children with hormone blocking drugs, in order to make their later "transitions" easier. (See article HERE.)
In the room applauding Creem were about a dozen other Massachusetts legislators, as well as representatives from Governor Deval Patrick, Attorney General Martha Coakley, and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino. In addition, there were representatives from organizations involving a broad range of sexual perversions, from bisexuality, to transgenderism for children, to pornography and sado-masochism. About 200 people were in attendance.
Cross-dressers, anger, hostility all around
The most bizarre aspect of the event was the convergence of cross-dressers and trans-sexuals, many of them large men dressed as women -- several with necklines revealing female-like breasts -- who were everywhere. Equally disturbing were the number of women dressed as men who appeared to have had their breasts surgically removed and sported hormonally-induced facial hair .
Adding to that was the anger and hostility that was so thick you could feel it, and was directed at those present whom they sensed did not support their cause. At one point during his speech, Rep. Byron Rushing seemed to point out a person from MassResistance in the crowd. Someone made an obscene gesture and the crowd cheered. It became so bizarre and hateful that finally our two photographers left the area.
A sad, tragic scene
One could not help feel that that these people are tragic figures, deeply hurting inside, and that they really need psychological help rather than an onerous law that only reinforces their misery and the overall devolution of society.
In fact, the mental health profession considers "gender identity disorder" to be something that needs to be treated, not reinforced -- and certainly not forced on society by law.
Training and energizing the activists for afternoon of lobbying
The main theme of the day was to energize the activists who came and give them the "tools" (i.e., emotional arguments, etc.) to go to their legislators and persuade them to not only support the bill, but also to get legislators persuade the leadership to allow the bill to move forward out of committee and get passed by the full House and Senate.

Ron Marlow, a high-ranking member of Gov. Patrick's administration, told the crowd that Governor Patrick agrees that the Transgender Bill is an extension of the struggle that started with the Declaration of Independence, and that do deny that would be to tell a lie about America.
Boston City Councilor Felix Arroyo gave greetings from Mayor Menino, invoked Ted Kennedy, and said that politicians must be not be allowed to "travel the safe ground" on this. He said he wrote Boston's ordinance banning discrimination against transgender persons.
Sen. Benjamin Downing said that "we are playing catch-up" by passing this bill "so that everyone can live up to their God-given potential in this Commonwealth." He compared concerns about transgender behavior with "atrocities in the South" faced by Martin Luther King.
Rep. Byron Rushing, as usual an insufferable windbag who droned on and on, stated that "None of what has been written in our American scripture makes any sense unless it makes sense to everybody in this room."
The event ended with a pagan-like "invocation" from the "Reverend" of a homosexual-oriented church in Provincetown.

Will the "Transgender Lobby Day" actually work for them? Our sense is that although the House and Senate leadership actually supports the bill, they're not quite ready to start that firestorm yet of letting it come up for a vote. It's a pretty weird and radical move, even for Massachusetts. And it's still too close to the liberal implosion indicated by Scott Brown's election.
But anything can happen. These people are incredibly focused and obsessed with changing society and forcing their sexual agenda even further. We'll keep you informed.
There were plenty of opportunities for activism that day.
