FELLOW TRANSSEXUAL AMERICANS, I come to you today with GREAT NEWS!
A new bill has been passed that will make discrimination based on being trans in regards to employment ILLEGAL! *throws confetti* what a wonderful piece of news, no? it still doesn’t deliver us protection from discrimination in regards to housing, but hey, its a BIG step in the right direction and I’m sure, with work, we’ll push through to get our protection in that area soon enough!
As a citizen living in Oregon, and more specifically Multnomah county, I already enjoyed such protection, but I am THRILLED that its finally being spread on the full blown national level. Discrimination based on being trans is gender discrimination which we have already declared illegal but just to drive it home here’s a LIL reinforcement :D. Here’s a link to the article. *uncorks champagne* so lift your glass & drink a toast to our community, here’s to a WONDERFUL landmark decision on the part of our national government, here’s to more decisions like it in the future and here’s to the eventual END of discrimination across the board! CHEERS QUEERS! 😉 MUCH LOVE! ❤
