I would have to agree, based on my time as an activist for gay/transgender
rights.  Whatever discrimination I face as a lesbian and as a transsexual,
it pales to the daily exploitation I face as a worker.  Indeed, my employer
is extremely tolerant of sexual minorities, but that doesn't change my
status as a worker.  Getting that idea across to my fellow gay/transgender
activists was rarely successful.
