There’s a ton of misinformation going around Tumblr on this, so I’m going to post some actual facts on the situation before I go to bed. Tammy Baldwin was one of 184 cosponsors of H.R. 2015, the trans-inclusive version of ENDA which was put before Congress in 2007. Unfortunately, Barney Frank — the bill’s originating sponsor — unilaterally withdrew H.R. 2015 from consideration and replaced it with H.R. 3685, a “gays only” version of ENDA. Frank argued that cutting trans rights out of ENDA was politically necessary because trans rights were an extremist position which would endanger moderate Democrats in swing states, whereas gay rights were “politically realistic”.
Many people are angry that more time was not given to the offenders. This seems to be the prevailing sentiment. I understand the anger but don’t know if adding a decade onto their sentences would be of any benefit. To me, the problem that needs to be addressed is where in the information chain were the two offenders made to understand that what they did was not wrong on every possible level? You can execute them both tomorrow but still, there is a problem that needs to be dealt with. It’s a situation where you would like to be able to point a finger and say, that’s the reason and be done.
claremoss asked: 24 and 28 and 29! 24 - The song you last sang: I work with people who have dementia / Alzheimer’s sometimes. When I was trying to get this little Russian lady (who used to be a music teacher and doesn’t really talk anymore) to interact with me a little, I sang her the Tetris song, because it was the only Russian melody I could come up with (even though my mom used to sing Russian songs to me when I was little). I got a smile, but no words. 28 - A song that makes you scream when you hear it
