Leftists like to divide people in to groups, tell one group they are oppressed and tell the other group they are intolerant bigots if they disagree. This year, the protected class du jour was transgenders, because thank you Caitlyn Jenner.
Naturally, there’s been an arms-race to see who can pander the fastest. Leading the charge, of course, is New York City…
New York City has warned landlords, employers and businesses they could be running afoul of the law by purposely calling a transgender woman “him” or “Mr.” when she prefers a female title and pronoun, or by barring her from using a women’s restroom.
New guidelines detail the legal protections of transgender and gender-nonconforming New Yorkers and what constitutes discrimination under the city’s Human Rights Law, the New York City Commission on Human Rights said on Monday.
Some 25,000 transgender and gender non-conforming people live in New York City, where discrimination based on gender identity and expression has been illegal since 2002.
Yes, you’ve read correctly. In New York City, it is now illegal to call someone by their actual gender instead of their preferred gender. You must take part in their delusional, alternate reality or face legal consequences.
That makes sense. At lease, it makes as much sense as anything does in New York City. People are living on the streets, citizens are robbed of their basic Second Amendment rights, but at least transgenders they have legal recourse if someone calls them sir and they claim to be a ma’am.
While we’re talking about “rights,” riddle me this: what about the landlord’s rights? What about his right to conduct his business in a way he sees fit? What about his right to not have his assets and/or properties seized simply for slipping up on fictional “gender” issue? What about his right to protect little girls in the restroom from would-be predators as seen in the video below?
Remember at the beginning of 2015, when leftists said that the right’s “slippery slope” argument was merely fear-mongering? Yeah, about that…
