“You gotta love it: An extremist political group is campaigning against a hate crimes bill with a hateful undercover video that only proves the need for just such a measure. Mass Resistance, a ‘pro-family action center’ in Massachusetts, recently went undercover with a video camera at a transgender conference with the intention of documenting the horrors that would allegedly be introduced with the passage of a state bill outlawing gender-based discrimination and hate crimes. The supposedly damning evidence: Footage of transgender women using the ladies' restroom.”

  1. I'm going to post this on my blog. As Solon said, this video only proves that we need legislation to protect us from their hate.

  2. Maybe, just maybe they arte jealous because some of us may look better and behave better than they do.

  3. Yes, Diana -- real hate. Of course many of us pass well enough to infiltrate their conferences... so....?

  4. oh the horror! Very large men going into restrooms in heels, and nearly bumping their heads on the doorways! This is the silliest video I've ever seen.
