Fred Sainz: Once again urging us to not bother legislators with our rights.
"This past year Americans were confronted with the epidemic of bullying against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people that goes on in our schools. The State of the Union address would be an appropriate time for the President to assert leadership on this moral issue and call on all schools to address the problem head on."
Listen, bullying is a terrible thing, and it should stop. However, aren't there more concrete, tangible goals he can tackle... oh, like, marriage equality? Or ENDA? Bullying can't be stopped with legislative efforts, but these things can. Let's not ignore our major goals in favor of the issues that are getting headlines.
