Tubman was most famously known for escaping slavery, traveling back to the South in 1853, and freeing hundreds of other slaves via the Underground Railroad.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is expected to make the monumental announcement along with a few other changes that could include putting more leaders of the women's suffrage movement on the back of the $10 bill!

Virginia Lawmakers Protest Pride Flag Outside Of Federal Reserve Bank!

Ugh! We're sorry, but what the EFF is wrong with people?!

Virginia delegates Robert Marshall and Riley E. Ingram have reportedly written letters of protest to Jeffrey Lacker, the president of the Richmond Federal Reserve Bank, because they're unhappy that they've put up a rainbow flag in honor of Gay Pride Month, and want it removed!

The bank originally chose put up the flag per the request of its LGBT group, Prism, and to reflect their commitment to diversity!

However, Marshall, Ingram, and the conservative members of the Virginia General Assembly, have struck back, and assert that homosexuality “adds significantly to illness, increases health costs, promotes venereal diseases, and worsens the population imbalance relating to the number of workers supporting the beneficiaries of America’s Social Security and Medicare programs.”

Marshall's letter continues:

“I do not believe that a celebration of ‘gay pride’ has anything to do with the mission of the Federal Reserve under the Federal Reserve Act passed by Congress. This is a celebration of a behavior that is still a class six felony in Virginia. How can the American people trust the judgement of the Federal Reserve as an institution when its spokesperson celebrates an attack on public morals?”

Unbelievable.

We think a better question might be, "How did such an ignorant man find his way into a position where he has a platform to spew that kind of hatred and nonsense?"

Absolutely deplorable! And so sad, especially in this day and age!

We commend the Federal Reserve Bank for their commitment to LGBT rights, and sincerely hope that they will not let this disgusting behavior affect or change their view on the matter!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!

And to all of the aforementioned members of the Virginia General Assembly, as well as anyone else promoting hatred and intolerance…HAPPY PRIDE MONTH, bitches! We're not going ANYWHERE! Xoxo!
