Oddsmakers, Do Your Thang…. [UPDATED]

Seen just a few minutes ago on Facebook:

The first of Zoe’s comments:

HB235 specifically excludes trans people from the same protections that gays have had since 2001. It gives them a
limited subset, while legitimising discrimination against them in many areas – such as lunch counters, or being allowed to ride a bus, enter a restaurant, or be given medical care at a hospital. In other words, “public accommodations”.

It legitimises inequality, in an attempt to give them at least some minimal rights in credit applications, employment, and housing. A “pragmatic compromise” that strengthens the rights of all other minorities regarding public accommodations, while denying trans people any protection whatsoever.

      Dichotomies, dichotomies, dichotomies…

      Its not either/or.

      Its top-down people who spend more time saying ‘bottoms up!’ than they do working on substantive LGB (much less T) rights concerns.

      Appletini!

    Appeltini? More like Cristal

  4. […] ‘Equality’ Maryland has engaged in massive deception and disgustingly childish (not to mention privilege-infected) censorship in order to con people who might genuinely care about trans people that HB235 will not in the long […]
