Gobble, gobble, let your voice be heard, gobble, gobble!

If you are silent, well -- it just ain't right.  Let your voice be heard to your representative that you and your LGBT friends have every right to the same rights that are enjoyed by your heterosexual friends.

PERIOD.

Transgender Pakistanis face society's scorn - www.usatoday.com

Let DC have a REAL vote (for a change)

In 2010, Wyoming had a population of 563,626.

During the same time, Washington DC had a population of 617,996.

Wyoming enjoys all the rights and liberties of a state.  Washington DC does not.

Get it?  Nah, neither do I.

I don't give a flying fart whether Washington DC residents are mostly Democratic, Republican, Green, independent, A Connecticut Party...whatever.  They have the right to choose what any other American chooses.  Period.  Get this done.  Now.

Let 'em have it - by e-mail!

A few things to remember; as I said before, the House of Representatives has an election every two years, and they had one this past Tuesday.  If your representative's mark "www.smith.gov" has a hash mark(#) next to it, it probably means that he/she is serving his last term.  However, until she/he gives up the seat formally (usually the first week in January) she/he continues the seat in November and December.  Therefore, it's considered proper etiquette to address the current member, not the future one.

In brief:  Let all LGBT people have the same rights as heterosexual people do, and let them be universal.
