Come And Take It, But Not Without A Fight

I'm still in this kinda pissed off mood right now about the unjust ruling by the Texas Supreme Kangaroo Court fracking with my human rights and the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance I and so many Houstonians worked hard to get passed last May. 

You haters have won a battle thanks to your partisan all-GOP Texas Supreme Court, but we will win the war if  HERO goes to the ballot if we fight as hard to defend it as we did to get it passed in the first place

If you value your human rights Houston trans, bi and SGL community, you will fight for them.   Your rights are on the chopping block too, allies since HERO just doesn't cover us.  It also covers sex, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, familial status, marital status, military status, religion, disability, pregnancy, genetic information in addition to gender identity and sexual orientation.

We trans folks, and especially LGBT people of color have no choice but to be all in for this upcoming human rights battle because our live are already under attack just for being non-white in America.

And it's some of our own people we will be fighting who are being hoodwinked and bamboozled by the GOP and white fundies.  Some who are fighting on the side of the children and grandchildren of the faux Christian segregationists are either too clueless, too transphobic and homophobic or have sold out and don't care about anybody else but themselves, but don't realize they are fighting against their own human rights..

So your choice is this Houston TBLG community and allies.  Do you meekly submit to right wing oppression, or are you going to resist it with every fiber of your being?

Your call.  But I know which path I'll be choosing.
