    Of course job bias laws protect our LGBTQIAPK friends and allies. To say otherwise is simply to dehumanize those who do not embody cisnormativity. This should be a 9-0 vote from our Court, but I’m sure the arch-conservatives will find a reason to deny rights to our non-binary brothers, sisters and allies.

      As usual, you lump the true with the untrue, and disrespect almost everyone in the process.

      There are only two genders, according to science. A person may feel they need to be transgender, meaning they feel a need to identify as the sex other than what they are born with. But there are STILL only two genders. According to science.

      To say someone disagrees with your statement about “non-binary” people exposes you as someone who really doesn’t respect the truth, and in effect, does not respect the fact that nearly everyone identifies as male or female. Those who identify as something else are not supported by any scientific research as being “normative”.

        Not to mention that there is a high correlation between transgender surgery and suicide.

        craig, with the nation at on or near full employment, I hardly think anyone with any qualifications cannot find a job. In fact, there are more jobs than people to fill them.

        Craig, This attitude that science and truth are subjective is a result of post modernism that’s being taught in schools, universities, etc. There is no truth. You get to establish your truth, your sex, your whatever… It’s shameful.

        It is not black and white. Everyone deserves protection against bias. And sexual identity and gender identity are no exceptions.

        America is about FREEDOM. Freedom to be whomever you want to be and still have a job included. The natives had a great way of looking at this.

        Craig, not everyone is a straight white Christian. And you saying there is something wrong with being Transgender is completely wrong. If anything it shows how full of hate your soul is. My grandmother always said: ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!’. There is NOTHING wrong with being gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or pansexual!

          Craig doesn’t hate anyone (well, maybe he does, but his post doesn’t include hate). He’s stating facts. There are only 2 sexes. Those that support this mental illness are doing nothing to help these poor misguided, mislead, confused (sometimes by their families who should care more about them) people.

            This is not a mental illness! It’s fictional beliefs like this that cause so many people to commit suicide vs living who they truly are. Love thy neighbor as you would love yourself. You don’t choose to be this way. No one chooses it. You are born that way.

            Oh, here we go with the doom saying dishonesty the Left is so fond of. “If you don’t do what I say, people will DIE!”

            Can it, Oh Self Righteous One. There are LOTS of tales of people choosing to have a same sex experience at one point in their life, and then choosing not to as life goes on. Women “experimenting” in college and then never again is almost a cliche. Men in prison. I could go on and on.

            And since you Lefties love to claim you “believe in science”, show me the science that says all gay people are born that way. Millions of dollars have been spent looking for the “gay gene”. And so far? No luck. Admit it. You don’t know what you are talking about as you falsely claim the moral high ground (typical Leftist).

      “to say otherwise is simply to dehumanize those who do not embody cisnormativity”

      Oh my god…I have no words for this. I don’t know what the arguments are on the “otherwise” but it would not be what you say it is. Sometimes the law has to work how it has to work. I would not be against a law for equal rights for these folks. I however do not like reinterpreting laws if there is a case to be made that it simply should not include them, for legal reasons.

      “but I’m sure the arch-conservatives will find a reason to deny rights to our non-binary brothers, sisters and allies.”

      Knock it off. Conservatives are not about denying folks rights.

    Craig,

    You are bullying again. Gender is NOT black and white. There are lots of shades of gray. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with transgender. Or homosexual.

      Bloviate all you want, but there are still two genders. By the way, I recommend you read Ecc 10:2. A lot of truth to that verse.

        try reading Mark 12:31. I’d say that verse is far more important than one you’ve taken out of context to justify your political beliefs.

        Agent, you know quoting scripture only aggravates these haters :) Hopeless situation when people don’t believe that truth exists. They could find it beautifully laid out in the word of God, but they think He’s a hater too.

          Lib Agent. You’re 100% right. No one is sinless, and especially me. HOWEVER, some people actually do their very best to please their Creator. If you choose not to that’s your decision. Please don’t quote scripture to support your heathen outlook on life though. If you haven’t studied the word stop acting as if you do. Christians are to be compassionate but they aren’t to live in sin nor condone it. If you choose to believe something else, do it. I don’t care but stop with the hypocrisy accusations. It’s not bullying to uphold what is right. I don’t personally bully any gays, lesbians, whatever they call themselves. They are clearly living outside God’s commandments, so I don’t go out of my way to associate with them any more than I’d go out of my way to associate with anyone consistently living in sin. There’s plenty of scripture to support that belief but I’m thinking no one really wants to hear it.

        I’d like to point out the bible is not full of ‘facts’. It’s a principle It is not based on science. If anything it’s hand picked chapters of legends. The Christians have done horrible things to the world by using this misguided concept.

            The version of the bible that is factless would be any version that includes zombie Jesus. So maybe the old testament, but you would have to overlook a lot of nonsense there as well…for example a talking snake that tricked a woman made from someone’s rib to eat a piece of fruit.

            If you want to use the bible as a guide for how to live your life, by all means, but if you take it as literal, you should know there are a whole lot of verses in there that are absolutely awful and you’d be awful to cite them or live your life by them.

            I was actually raised and confirmed catholic. So technically I know the bible very well. I could see the inconsistencies, bias, and inaccuracy by the time I was confirmed. So don’t tell me I haven’t read the bible. Or that I don’t have a right to quote it.

            Back to my point, it’s fine that you personally don’t want to be gay or transgender. But if you want to live in a country that finds this ‘sin’ something to discriminate against, MOVE OUT OF AMERICA. This country was founded for all religions, sexes, races, backgrounds, beliefs to live together in HARMONY. Not to discriminate against things they personally believe is wrong.

        While I sometimes agree with you, perplexed, I have to be the devil’s advocate here.

        If we call someone a slut, and they factually meet what the definition is, that would be considered bullying. Stating facts can be bullying.

        I don’t tend to think one should jump to that conclusion…But it’s certainly possible.

      Hey Dipstick, before you start calling people names like “bully”, get your facts straight. I never criticized either transgender or gay people. (Apologize for saying so, clown).

      And your ludicrous links have one thing in common: NONE of them dispute the distinction between X and & chromosomes, meaning NONE of your links dispute the fact there are only two genders, no matter how much you clowns try to cloud the issue with other nonsense.

        “There are only two genders, according to science. A person may feel they need to be transgender, meaning they feel a need to identify as the sex other than what they are born with. But there are STILL only two genders. According to science.”
        That says they are born to a ‘sex’. But there are more than just two that you could be born with. XXY, XY, XYY, XXX, XXYY are just some examples. Some people are born with both genitalia. Some are born with two of the same. Gender and sex are two completely different things. You obviously didn’t even read the articles.
        Then you go on to state:
        “To say someone disagrees with your statement about “non-binary” people exposes you as someone who really doesn’t respect the truth, and in effect, does not respect the fact that nearly everyone identifies as male or female. Those who identify as something else are not supported by any scientific research as being “normative”.”
        You said she ‘doesn’t respect the truth’. That is an insult. And you said those who didn’t identify as male or female were not normal. Another insult. They’re just different than you. Not ‘abnormal’. All of which is bullying. ‘I don’t like what they say so I’ll criticize them.’

          I did read the articles. Today. For the second time, since some clown tried to pass them off before dishonestly – like you – as evidence that the X and Y chromosomes aren’t distinct in separating the genders.

          Check out the dictionary. The first definition of Gender: sex. Another lie that gender and sex are distinctly different.

          Let me know when you embrace truth. And science. In the meantime, I will just laugh at your posturing.
