Maryland’s governor, in signing the product of the latest fit of fervor from his state’s Marriage Derangement Syndrome sufferers:
For a free and diverse people,… for a people of many faiths,… for a people committed to the principle of religious freedom,… the way forward is always to be found through greater respect for the equal rights of all; for the human dignity of all.
If there is a thread that unites the story of our people, it is the thread of human dignity; the dignity of work; the dignity of family; the dignity of every child’s home; the dignity of every individual.
But not – since 2001 – every trans individual.
Spin it anyway you want, but the soon-to-be-married gays and lesbians of Maryland will have the same special right to discriminate against trans people that the currently-unable-to-be-married ones have had since 2001.
