Melanie Nathan Excerpt

Published September 22, 2020 by Nan Mykel

No one should be denied access to a homeless shelter because of who they are: On Friday, July 23, 2020, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) proposed a new rule that would gut protections for transgender people seeking safe shelter. This rule would strip away current protections that prohibit federally-funded homeless shelters from discriminating against transgender people. The new rule permits shelters to discriminate, which will result in needless suffering and death. (O-blog-dee-O-blog-dah)

  • Nan, as conservative pundit David Brooks has said “Donald Trump lacks a sense of decency or empathy.” People who criticize him or groups that do not fit his definition are just pawns. What is followers do not realize, he probably looks down at them with disdain. That last observation comes from Howard Stern, who interviewed Trump multiple times over the years. Keith

  • That rule would actually be unconstitutional and would be challenged in the courts, all the way up to the Supreme Court. Oh wait … the Supreme Court is about to become Trump’s personal lackeys. What an abomination. What’s next? Take away women’s and minorities rights to vote? Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
