Beth Sherouse is an American Council of Learned Societies (“ACLS) Public Fellow. She currently is staffed as “Senior Content Manager” at the Human Rights Campaign. She started her position this month and will be there for two years. She recently penned a blog post for the HRC website – because this is her job as “Senior Content Manager” – stating that although she never has been to the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival, she opposes it because Men cannot come.
It is blatantly obvious that the Human Rights Campaign is pandering to the Transgender community with this blog post. This blog post does not represent HRC policy, as the organization would not delegate such a policy declaration to a fellow who has been with the organization for two weeks.
The Human Rights Campaign should be ashamed of itself for this meaningless political stunt that will do nothing except inflame tensions between lesbians and Men who identify as Women.
