    A chance to ask why we lost

    Posted by: Chris

    Three of the leaders behind the effort to defeat the gay marriage ballot measures will be answering questions during a live blog event on Thursday over at Bilerico.

    You'll almost never see actual criticism of GLBT leadership at Bilerico, likely because founder Bil Browning fears he'll lose access for events like this, and because many gay group E.D.'s (excuse me, "presidents," though next to none of them were actually "elected" by "members") are regular contributors and guest-bloggers.

    Hopefully we'll see some tough questions of Kate Kendall, of the California-based National Center for Lesbian Rights, about why the promised "big ol' homo" campaign against Prop 8, full of visible gay voices, never materialized.

    Others answering questions on the live blog include Equality Florida's Nadine Smith and Equality Arizona's Barbara McCullough-Jones.

      You'll won't get the truth at Bilerico either (their Managing Editor...who writes under a fake name and lies 'about his his profession and his age (he wants readers to think he's older and more experienced than he is). He once told me "Why tell thell the truth when you can lie?" I was banned for revealing his age (25...he wants readers to think he's older and more experienced). They only write what gets them hits on their blog.

      Thank God for the Internet where you can pretend to be anything you want to be.

      It never ceases to amaze me that people buy their bullshit hook, line and sinker.

      Note Bilerico's own Michael Crawford in the comments here:

      "I guess it is much easier and much safer to sit at a keyboard and bitch about people that actually did work than actually do work to help win equality for LGBT people.

      Maybe you will be motivated soon to join the fight rather than just comment on it from on high...That's right Alex avoid the issue.

      You want to sit behind your keyboard hurling criticism at people who are doing the work that you are unwilling to do. It is your right to do so, but don't think that it makes you any better than anyone else..When you are ready to do more than criticize the hard work of others while you sit behind your computer maybe then we can have a conversation."

      LOL

      Yes, why bother when it's so much easier to go online undere an assumed name, lie about your profession, your experience and credentials while others (whom you criticize) do the work for you?

      Bravo Michael for calling a spade a spade (or in this case a fake a fake).
