    Inflation runs high at HRC

    Posted by: Chris

    Solmonese Inflation may be under control in the U.S. economy, but it's still running rampant at the Human Rights Campaign, which cooks its books to count as "members" anyone who's ever given a dollar to the organization and hasn't (to the group's knowledge) died.

    After the latest round of scrutiny and criticism over the abominable practice, which has been roundly condemned by both observers, there were murmurings of reform. Apparently they stayed murmurs.  Now the number is up to a laughable 700,000.  One can only imagine how endowed HRC would advertise itself in an online profile…

      Let's see, to be credible, 700,000 members x $35 dollars per member = 24.5 million US dollars. I'll tell you what, if they can show me a line item on there federal income tax return that indicates $24.5 million income, I will believe them. Otherwise, I conclude that their numbers are not legitimate and they are lying.

      HRC, prove me wrong.

      sigh..your feud with the HRC is so tiresome....

      tiresome? Hardly.

      HRC is known for what? Handing out bumper stickers? When was the last time they did anything substantial? Other than raise money at fancy dinners for rich fags?

      in terms of your survey, you seem smart enough to not have to resort to linguistic games..."is abortion part of gay rights?" you ask. No. But it is a highly significant, similar and in some key ways a related issue. It's about individuals having the right to make decisions about their own bodies--rather than mullahs, bushes, Baptists or Cheneys. The fact that there is an abortion issue is because of sexism and misogyny. We wouldn't be having this discussion if it were men because clearly our president would likely have had a few. (though there are those rumors). Misogyny is also at the core of societal homophobia. The world at large--mainly the guys in charge--don't like gays because they take the female role or might have somefeminine characteristics in their fine hands or effete dress or speech. If you feel on such shakey ground with what's clearly your position (and shared by a ton of other gay men who don't like the feminine side of themselves...even if they don't have one... self loathing and then in turn expressed as a disgust or disdain for women.) in misogyny.)
      so, do the issues around a woman's right to make choices about her body relate to the issues and battles gay people fight to get rights? Absolutely. Ask the question that way just to test how the split differs ...if you dare.
