    Why? That's discrimination against anyone who doesn't "fit the mold."

    I'm a nudist and I feel my rights are being trampled on. So some tranny is allowed to tuck his junk, shave his beard, put on red lipstick and put on a little black dress and go to work but I'm not allowed to express MYSELF?

    Where's the equality??

    It won't happen with republicans in the South. And it won't happen with republicans in the Mormon west states. But it may fly with republicans in other western states and to a lesser extent some repubs in the midwest states.

    Re: Senate passes LGBT anti-discrimination bill

    years ago, a young attorney at a top law firm here in town was fired. he claimed he was fired after he designated his boyfriend as his beneficiary on his firm's life insurance policy. The firm defended saying that this young gay attorney was spending too many hours on pro bono cases-often cases that were in contradiction to the interests of the firm's biggest clients.

    well I knew this guy since he was active in the ACLU and in abortion rights (where my mother was a well known advocate)

    the senior partner was an elderly gentleman who had been around for years. Very conservative. his locker at the club was near mine: he had represented my father's firm for decades

    so I went up to him

    Sir, is it true that Mr. G was fired for being gay?

    Son, if that boy was as good an attorney as his ACLU and other leftwing friends said he is, he'd be welcome to have sex with a Giraffe in my private office anytime he liked

    the firm won the lawsuit.

    uhm, i am one and millions of Christians (and many Catholics including the pope even though he isnt in this country) are fine with people having equal legal, human and civil rights.

    Being Christians is meaningless to the debate and religion has no place what so ever in a LEGAL marriage debate.

    Why would Christians be upset about people having their equal rights granted and protected?

    A transgender person does a lot more than that. A transgender person doesnt demand a new dress code just to match the dress code of the gender they need to live their lives as. We dont deny the establishments right to decide on the dress code.

    Whatever. I'm against the bill, and I doubt it passes the House, although I don't follow politics much these days so anything can happen.

    I think the idea that people need the government to dictate their version of sensibility on us is offensive, arrogant, and wrong, but it's been happening for so long now there's no use in getting worked up about it.

    Interesting story, but i don't think anyone denies that there are frivolous discrimination claims. That's what trials are meant to determine after all. At the same time, I'm sure the point of your story wasn't to claim that people are never fired due to their sexuality. To me the bigger issue is taking on a job where you just don't know what could happen and there's no possible protection.

    I had an interview chance, well i still do technically, by a company in a detroit suburb. Well, i had to find out what is detroit's law...ok sexuality is covered, now what about this suburb...nope, now what about this company...i can't find anything in writing...should i flat out ask? I don't think it's worth the risk and especially not worth the stress, so probably not going to bother with them. But those are the kind of decisions that have to be made, and it's total bull**** that a big company that contracts with the federal government can get away with this.

    As an actual, practicing Nudist... I would never think of going to work nude. Time and a place for everything... (And yes,,,, I know you were speaking in jest. )
    As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!
