A Shift in the Battle Lines

Have you noticed that the emphasis of social conservatives has shifted from discriminating against Gays, about 2% of the population, to discriminating against Transgenders who are estimated to be no more than 0.3% of the population?

Of course attacks upon Gays haven't ended entirely although the battle lines there have pretty much shifted as well from Gay Marriage to non-discrimination ordinances.

So, as usual, the wing nut forces are loosing. They're not even doing very well against illegal immigrants and Muslims any more.

Here's a prediction for you. They're going to lose the discrimination battle against Transgenders as well.

What are they going to do then? They'll be out of people who are different that they can be afraid of and discriminate against.

Maybe if they have no targets for their hatred they'll grow up? I wouldn't bet on it though.
