Bill de Blasio, the raging liberal mayor of New York City, is at it again — but this time his new legislation regarding transgender citizens infringes on constitutional rights and is flat out ridiculous.
The Red State provides insight into the absurdity:
For starters, there is mere silliness:
The guidelines said dress codes requiring men to wear ties or women to wear skirts are discriminatory.
Then it starts to get more serious:
Failing to provide employee health benefits for gender-affirming care or failing to accommodate people undergoing gender transition, such as medical appointments, could violate the law as well, they said.
And finally, it gets to the absurd:
“…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.”
The penalty comes at a steep price:
“Today’s guidance makes it abundantly clear what the city considers to be discrimination,” which can lead to fines of up to $250,000, Carmelyn P. Malalis, commissioner of the Human Rights Commission, said in a statement.
You have no right to be unoffended. You have a right to be offended with regularity. It is the price you pay for living in a free society.
