A cesspool of homophobia and transphobia

The phrase in the title is how openly gay New York State Senator Tom Duane characterized the New York Senate after the senate Judiciary Committee rejected the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act, or GENDA by a vote of 12-11.

Democratic Senator Ruben Diaz joined all the Republican members of the committee in voting against equal rights.  You may recall Diaz from his opposition last year to the marriage equality bill.

Can’t someone get rid of this guy?
