Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

Craig, we are trans folks speaking up for our own personal dignity. You own a bar that is named an epithet for us. An epithet that people have hurled at me (and others commenting here) in Burlington, at LGBT nights and events because they don't want trans women to be safe/welcome/included. That you still refuse to grasp this and instead accuse people of conspiracy and some "agenda" and bullying is something else.

Your bar is named an epithet, you have demonstrated you do not care, and you accuse people hurt by it of bullying you and having an agenda. That is the current situation.

Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

I was only at the meeting once, so you are probably more of an expert on it than me by now, but my understanding of the consensus was that *RECORDING* was not permitted in the meeting. This is why journalists were asked to bring notepads only, and not audio recording devices and notepads.

When I read your comment that you have an audio recording of the meeting, I physically felt sick to my stomach, and like I had personally been spied on.

Audio recording people surreptitiously can even be criminal in Vermont, depending on the context in which the recordings were taken. In a room full of people who had a long discussion about recording video, it would have behooved whoever took the recording to ask permission or disclose that they wanted to record. Recording the meeting in secret, and passing it along to you, is an unforgivable invasion of privacy and an absolutely deplorable act.

I am so disgusted with you and yours right now I can hardly breathe.

Re: “Soundbites: Mister Disaster

Wait... Craig has an audio recording of the trans town hall? That meeting that opened with a lengthy conversation about whether reporters should be allowed to have cameras and other recording equipment or only notes, and it was decided that they should only be able to take notes by those in the room.

Whoever recorded that audio deeply invaded and violated the trust of everyone in attendance at that meeting. For shame. No one in the room requested permission or disclosed that they would be (or were even interested in) audio recording the meeting.

That is unacceptable behavior and I am absolutely appalled. Given the concerns about recording the meeting that were raised and discussed at the start, it is even more disgusting.

Just when I think there is not much more Craig could do that is upsetting he just keeps them coming.
