The Fight To Keep HERO- October 16

Early voting in our civic elections starts Monday, but everyone in H-town is still talking about Bob McNair’s $10K donation to the anti-HERO bigots that has pissed off me and other until Thursday ride or die LGBT Texans fans.

He released this written statement in the wake of the growing controversy over his contribution to the Forces of Intolerance.

“I strongly believe that everyone who lives or works in or visits Houston should be treated with the utmost dignity and respect. Because of the way the HERO ordinance is written, it has begun to separate rather than unite our community. This problem can be solved by defeating the current bill in November, thoughtfully rewriting it and then resubmitting it to the voters.”

Naw Bob, the animus around HERO is all coming from your suburban Republican peeps meddling in Houston human rights business and demonizing trans people to do so since April 2014.

There is no problem with the HERO language since it went through 15 draft.  Could your ‘problem with the language’ be related to the fact that the Houston TBLG community are two of the 15 categories covered?

We are also well aware of the fact that when you GOP peeps deploy the  ‘thoughtfully rewrite HERO’ comment, it’s dog whistle politics for ‘we are going to cut the Houston LGBT community out of it’.

Not no, but HELL no to that Bob.   And for you Texans fans who support HERO and wish to express yourselves, here’s the linkto their Facebook pagefor starters.

And NFL, where you at on #HERO?  We need to know with early voting in this election starting on Monday where the league stands on this.   Houston voters on both sides need to definitively know is the repeal of #HERO results in Houston losing the 2017 Super Bowl and chances at hosting future Super Bowls.
