Barney Frank: “Reversing the usual direction”

via Queerty and PoliticsTV, Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) yesterday re-introduced ENDA— the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which would keep employers from firing or refusing to hire based on sexuality or gender identity. Frank:

Opponents of this sometimes say this it’s some deep, dark plot to make some of them like some of us. Let me say at the outset that my indifference to whether a lot of these people think well of me or not cannot be overestimated. This has nothing to do with seeking anybody’s approval. It is seeking people’s right to be able to get a job, to get promoted, to be treated on the job solely on job performance.

Note: As you will note if you watch the video all the way through, the title of the post comes not from anything Frank said about ENDA, but what he said about his repeated urging to the people standing in front of the doors in the crowded room to “come in.”
