Preserving the Distinctly Private and Personal

You think I just don't understand, but I don't believe you.

On November 21, the Howard County Council will take up County Bill 54-2011, which intends to ban discrimination based on “gender identity” in housing, employment law enforcement, financing and public accommodations.  Like many of the bills pushed by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and others, the bill defines “gender identity or expression” as “a gender-related identity or appearance of an individual regardless of the individual’s assigned sex at birth.

Huh? Does the bill define gender? No – but, of course, say advocates, we all know this means a way of act or presenting yourself that is stereotypically associated with the opposite sex.  Except if you are trans, you do the OPPOSITE stereotype.

Right?  Ugh.
