From the Seattle Pridefest Facebook Page:
 
"At the Parade on Sunday, around 11:25am, a man "with a beer belly and a black vest" took a swipe at a trans* self-proclaimed fairy godmother’s wings and broke them, telling her to go away, that this was a day for "his" people. We at Seattl…e PrideFest for one won’t claim him as our own. We are one community and if you believe that there shouldn’t be a T in LGBT, then your presence at Pride negates the whole purpose of Pride. It’d be better for you to just stay home. Let’s leave the bigotry, homophobia, and transphobia to Westboro and their hateful cohorts. We are stronger together than we are apart, and our trans* family faces enough bigotry from the outside world—they shouldn’t have to get it from our own community. If you have more information or photos from this incident, please send to info@seattlepridefest.org. #unitedwepride”
 
*Sigh*
 
So the asshole who did this claimed it was a day for ‘his people’?
 
Really?
 
Really?!?
 
What this idiot does not seem to grasp is that the person he attacked and victimized, Lonness Valenna, IS his people!  It is not just about Lesbian and Gay People, not just the L and the G whilst heaping scorn upon Trans people and Bisexual people.
 
How can some proclaim Pride whilst shaming others, thus trying to take their Pride from them?  How can some who have felt the boot of oppression upon their necks turn around and do the same to others?
 
It is Hypocrisy, and it is Wrong.
 
Those who think that it is okay to scorn and shame Trans and Bisexual people, those who engage in this hate ful behaviour, those who supposedly fight for rights, while engaging in the oppression to diminish, marginalize, or exclude the same rights of others…do not deserve their rights at all.
