ENDA on Hold
Well, the removal of transgendered individuals from the ENDA has caused an uproar amongst LGBT support groups. Due to the massive response to the change in the legislation, a vote on the Act has been post-poned.
According to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle, "the intense backlash by the gay community surprised House Democratic leaders." Really? It did not come as a surprise to me at all. Transgendered individuals are part of the LGBT community--and a partially helpful Employment Nondiscrimination Act is akin to a public announcement that only some individuals in the LGBT community deserve legal protection.
