Trans* rights in the United States. See a problem here?
& This is why I wont move off the west coast!
Nor I out of Minnesota!!!
just in case you folks don’t quite understand the implications of “employment discrimination” and “housing discrimination” i will break it down for you:
it means you can be FIRED from your job, no matter HOW long you’ve been working there or how great an employee you are, for NO other reason, and it means you can be KICKED OUT OF YOUR HOUSE AND/OR EVICTED for NO OTHER REASON. it means you can be DENIED a job SOLELY because you are trans* and it means you can be denied a home SOLELY because you are trans*. and it is COMPLETELY LEGAL.
mass only recently ended this with the trans* rights bill we passed just a few months ago.
i hope you understand that the legal sanctioning of stripping BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS from trans* people is DIRECTLY CORRELATED with the outrageously high homelessness and SUICIDE rates of trans* people. THIS is part of why over 50% of trans* people UNDER 20 have attempted suicide, many successfully. 50 FUCKING PERCENT.
this is not just discrimination. this is STRIPPING people of their HUMANITY and ENDORSING their deaths. this is borderline LEGAL GENOCIDE.
why i’m not at all impressed w/ Obama’s “groundbreaking” stance on gay marriage.
WOW this is terrible. And to the person who said that about Obama.. yes there is A LOT wrong with this country still OF COURSE, but he’s not a fucking magician.. announcing his support of gay marriage is at LEAST a step in the right direction.. he can’t change the laws single-handedly. One thing his announcement is at least doing is paving a road for later presidents to announce their support as well, because then it at least won’t be a first. There’s no need to attack someone clearly on the same side.
Yeah, no need to attack the president. By the way, in Alabama….you can be fired without reason. If you brush your teeth in the work bathroom or you decide to fart after eating Mexican and they don’t like you……FIRED. As far as whether or not it’s legal to discriminate….it shouldn’t matter. You can legally be a dick to everyone in every state, it doesn’t make it right. Everyone discriminates against something. No one is going to love everything about everyone. I have a lot of views because of reasons. Good reasons, mind you. Not sure where this is going……but I’m sure it’s going somewhere. I’ll blog again when I figure it out.
