Looks like the NYC Commission on Human Rights have lost their, er, “zirs” minds.
Did you call a transsexual person “he” or “she” when they preferred to be called “zhe?” According to a newly updated anti-discrimination law in New York City, you could be fined an eye-watering $250,000.
In the latest, astonishing act of draconian political correctness, the NYC Commission on Human Rights have updated a law on “Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Expression” to threaten staggering financial penalties against property owners who “misgender” employees or tenants.
Incidents that are deemed “wilful and malicious” will see property owners face up to $250,000 in fines, while standard violations of the law will result in a $125,000 fine. For small business owners, these sums are crippling….
Other violations of the law include refusing to allow individuals to use single-sex facilities such as bathrooms that are “consistent with their gender identity,” failing to provide employee health benefits for “gender-affirming care” and “imposing different uniforms or grooming standards based on sex or gender.”….
The leaders of the various so-called human rights commissions, in their aggressive and perverted intrusions into people’s lives, are what we used to call sex criminals and/or sexual predators.
First there’s the thought police. Then (now) there’s the speech police. And the, Show me your papers police (eg, you need a license to sell lemonade, little girl). Next is the association police (eg, a rally in support of the 2nd amndt. or against the sitting politicians will be considered an inducement to riot). Not to mention, you can only practice your religion in an approved House of Worship during specific appointed hours police.
The Bill of Rights was created for a reason. One party rule can trample our individual rights.
Another reason for me not to move back to NYC – ever
Isolate NYC with a fence and declare the place the National Asylum for the Mentally Ill. The rest of the country can send all their nuts.
