Here is today’s State Department announcement, sent to all employees:
2012 National Transgender Day of Remembrance
National Transgender Day of Remembrance is observed on November 20th each year to memorialize those who suffered or died as a result of anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. Such persons were victimized simply because they failed to meet someone else’s expectation of how they should identify or present themselves. Globally, the transgender community is among the most vulnerable and most misunderstood of communities, often facing lives of persecution, humiliation, poverty, exclusion, and rejection – even from their own families.
On this day, we reflect on the international transgender community’s historic and ongoing struggle for equal social treatment, civil protections, opportunities and rights.
The Department is committed to treating all of its employees with dignity and respect and providing a work environment free of discrimination. Federal employment information provided by the Director of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), Guidance Regarding the Employment of Transgender Individuals in the Federal Workplace, can be found at: [this site.]
The Department’s cable dated July 11, 2012 on the Employment of Transgender Individuals is also a good resource:
The Department of State and GLIFAA (Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies), are proud to recognize this day and hope that all State employees will take the opportunity to mark this important day. GLIFAA is the officially recognized employee resource group of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and ally employees in U.S. foreign affairs agencies serving in the U.S. and abroad. GLIFAA works to achieve full equality (in policy, treatment, benefits, etc.) for its members.

America is wallowing in its own vomit, and worse. The Lord has turned our nation over collectively to a reprobate mind. It won’t be much longer now.

No, the most vulnerable are the unborn. We really are living in an upside down world where freaks are enshrined with their own special days while the most helpless and innocent are slaughtered.
