Royal Oak, Michigan (USA)

Voters in the City of Royal Oak, Michigan will decide whether to uphold a city ordinance passed by the local government to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation, HIV status and gender identity.  Gender identity means “a person’s actual or perceived gender, including a person’s gender identity, self-image, appearance, expression, or behavior, whether or not that gender identity, self-image, appearance, expression, or behavior is different from that traditionally associated with the person’s sex at birth as being either female or male.”

It is unfortunate that Gay Rights Activists allowed such misogynistic, stereotyping language to be included in this ordinance, as the ordinance has the supportable goals of banning discrimination based on sexual orientation and HIV status.
