Stop Telling Me GoProud is a Gay Rights Group

They aren’t. Seriously, the only right they care about is the right to make more money if they happen to have it. Otherwise, they take no stand on any specific issue facing the LGBT community, unless that stand is to say that we’re worried about the wrong things and why don’t you care about the debt, huh?

The only time they care about things like DOMA or ENDA is when they can blame Democrats for not being able to magically make Republican filibusters disappear. It’s much like anti-gay groups who misquote studies that show that gay people don’t live as long to imply that is has something to do with them being gay (according to the quoted sources, if you remove the ellipses, it’s because of homophobia), then they do everything in their power to make sure that gay people don’t live as long.

They’re nothing but window dressing: a group to make it look like the entire party isn’t homophobic due to its cozy relationship with the religious right. Stop pointing to them as if they actually give a damn.
