You say that like it's a bad thing

People grumping about other people actually supporting freedoms, because they're freedoms that the grumpers don't like. Sorry chumps, you get to support freedom or not, you don't get to pick and choose.

Oh hey, tags are a thing that exist. I should probably use them.


  1. Except... Forcing businesses to hire people subtracts from their freedom.

    If you're going to have freedom and liberty, you have to let the haters hate. And I want them hating openly so I can avoid spending money on them.

    I know several trans folks. The ones who are political and blame prejudice against transvestites as the reason they can't find a job apparently don't notice that they'd be a bad hire in a suit, let alone a dress.

    It's especially galling since LGBA groups can exclude hetro people from hiring. Black groups can exclude whites, woman's groups can exclude men...

    Straight white men want to exclude anyone at all... IT'S BIGOTRY!

    It's got to be a two way street with the same rules for everyone or it's every bit as racist/sexist/bigoted.

    1. True. I'm a big fan of logical consistency, which is why it bugs me whenever people on whatever side of the political spectrum claim or even believe themselves to be champions of freedom, except for "those people". I think about the time I posted this I'd seen a lot of ostensibly pro-freedom people going 'GRRR RAAR GAY PEOPLE DESTROYING AMERICA!' which bugged me slightly and probably led to an abbreviated post without proper elaboration.

      I pretty much agree 100% with what you said. This was more directed at the tone of "how dare someone acknowledge transgender people" that I picked up on, than the bill itself.

      I need to make sure I take the time to articulate my posts properly, and will endeavor to do so in the future.
