    Transgender federal employee wins historic discrimination case

    The U.S. Office of Special Counsel on Thursday announced a landmark determination that the Department of the Army engaged in “frequent, pervasive and humiliating,” gender-identity discrimination against Tamara Lusardi, a veteran and civilian Army software specialist who transitioned from male to female.Lusardi was working in the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center (“AMRDEC”) in Redstone, Ala., when she transitioned from male to female in 2010. During that time, the Army improperly restricted her restroom usage, referred to her with male pronouns and by her birth name and stopped giving her work, the OSC said in a report released Thursday.


    In a telephone interview from Alabama, Lusardi, 49, who served in the Army from 1986 to 1993, including in Desert Storm, said she was called “sir” and “it” by co-workers and management after she legally changed her name, driver’s license and security clearance and began dressing as a woman.
    Lusardi was also required to use a single-user, gender-neutral restroom, out of concerns that other employees might feel “uncomfortable” sharing a restroom with her.
    The OSC, a federal investigative and prosecutorial agency, said that coworker preferences alone “cannot justify discriminatory working conditions,” since it could reinforce the very stereotypes and biases that nondiscrimination laws are intended to protect against. According to the report, Lusardi should be able to use bathrooms designated for her gender identity.

    Good for her! I believe the OSC ruled in the right direction on this one. Another step in the right direction, and definitely a win for equality.

    Sigh..

    The individual is still a man and has no business in the female bathroom. I don't care if it hurts his feelings either.

    I feel sorry that female rights are now being tampled on. i don't see how this is a victory for them at all.
    men are now allowed to use their bathrooms as long as they say they are female.

    this is a sick country we are becoming no doubt about it.

    i don't see how trampling on the rights of women everywhere to use a bathroom without having the opposite sex in their bathroom is a win for anyone.

    I'm confused. Does Tamara have a penis or a vagina?

    You are confused? Just think about how confused, and otherwise ****ed up, someone like “Tamara” has to be to be so intent on pretending to be the opposite of his true sex.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Do the females in your home use a separate bathroom? Like most restrooms in American homes, restrooms are unisex.

    How hard would it be to have a restroom used just like home...one at a time...by any sex.

    People pretend to be what they are not all the time. How many times do we hear of preachers...men of god...screwing the congregation...both literally and figuratively.

    The Church is full of liars and pretenders.

    I have mixed feelings on the bathroom issue. Depends on her level of transitioning. Everything else is right on target. If she has changed her name, legally, they need to address her by THAT name.
