“Sometime people only vote because they are part of a “label” and what they’re voting for has the same “label” ….I’m gay let me vote for Prop 1″
One opinion causing a roar comes from a Montrose bartender that works in the LGBT community. “Sometime people only vote because they are part of a “label” and what they’re voting for has the same “label” states Kashmir Cortave, a bartender at Blur Nightclub. “I’m black, let me vote for Obama. I’m gay let me vote for Prop 1.”
With what sounds like television and radio ads for HERO opponents; Cortege turns her post into an debate about protecting women and girls from sexual predators. She claims she is a mother, and men in women’s restrooms is not acceptable. “You mean to tell me a sex offender can put on a wig and a dress and go into the women’s restroom?” She writes. “No Sir!! Wtf!!”
The ordinance nicked named HERO is similar to what 200 other cities have implemented relating to bias in housing, employment, city contracting and business services for 15 protected classes, including race, age, sexual orientation and gender identity.
Cortege’s Facebook rant pulled the scab on a ‘fresh wound’ of the LGBT community. If her intent was to engage. Her mission was accomplished.
“Men in Women’s Restrooms, there was so much more to Prop 1 and you allowed yourself become bamboozled out of satire and fear from what was completely far from the truth.” Joey Mireles, a local DJ wrote on his Facebook, linking to Cortege’s post.
“Despite our friendship for such a long time. I’m sorry, but your responses were pitiful, and although your entitled to your opinion. As a bartender in the Gay Community you should be completely more knowledgable than this.” Mireles writes.
