That exclamation escaped the lips of District 9 Councilwoman Elisa Chan on May 21 in her City Hall office, where she was meeting with members of her staff to discuss the city's proposal to update its nondiscrimination ordinance, adding protections for sexual orientation and gender identity. ~ mysanantonio.com
One person advised Chan on her tactics ..you'll score the most political points by standing up and being anti gay because its not an economic argument, its not a small government argument its a social cultural argument and you'll get the most points by taking a stand..and by doing so admitted that they had no intention of governing fairly. They are plotting to squash a equality measure based on their bigotry.
"personally its disgusting to think about...." Chan comments about LGBT people's lives but balking at stating this view in public acknowledging it would hurt her career.
Guess what Councilwoman Elisa Chan? You just committed political suicide.
Chan suggests she lie about her knowledge of transsexualism in order to kill the amendment " ...maybe we can throw some questionable confusion because the definition is so confusing, I was not educated on what transgender is about..." then Chan go's on to mention various web sources that offer information about transgender people.
Degrassi Video Spoiler: First regular transgender character on prime time, Adam, Dies in Car Wreck Texting
Yes, Adam (Jordan Todosey) died after hitting a tree when he lost control of the car he was driving because he was texting at the end of the last episode, sending home the message that it can always wait to the show's young viewers. Executive producer Stephen Stohn tweeted after the episode, "We must never text and drive. Never." ~ E online
We must never text and drive. Never. #Degrassi

Not so sure Stohn knew how badly Adams death would be received by viewers. So many cried and commented they would never watch Degrassi again. Seems the show has made a habit of killing off their best at critical moments instilling a sense of dread in viewers, like OK, who's next. The sad truth is death is a fact of life expecially in the trans community and Degrassi like life will go on.
