Skip to comments.Connecticut To Consider Transgender Anti-Discrimination Proposal
Posted on 01/06/2009 8:16:15 AM PST by Blue Turtle
Transgender activists believe this is the year they will gain equal protection under the state's anti-discrimination laws.
"We feel good," said Jerimarie Liesegang, who leads the Connecticut TransAdvocacy Coalition. "We've done the groundwork, we've done the education and we know we have the votes."
A proposal, to be introduced in the legislative session that begins Wednesday, would prevent people who in any way blur gender lines from being discriminated against in the workplace or while seeking housing or obtaining credit. More than a dozen states, including California, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Oregon and Rhode Island, have enacted similar laws.

I am glad with all the problems this nations has, that this issue is getting the attention it deserves. /sarc
My name is “Sleep and Eat” and I have Ethnic Identity Disorder. I will come to work in Black Face and use the Colored Only Rest Room.
I suppose there is a fitting if ironic justice to fact that the “constitution state” has been targeted for the legal advancement of any and every perversion of natural law.
I wish I knew how to post photos. Can someone get a still of me from Silver Streak? “Sleep and Eat” thanks you.
I’m from Ct..hangs head in shame.
It would be nice to see cases of transgenedered discrimination before passing a law protecting them.
Never hire someone you’ll not be able to fire (for cause) without a damned lawsuit. Makes business and life that much easier, especially in challenging times.
I wonder if the tranny’s will be allowed into their country clubs up in CT/sarc ROTFLMAO - can’t wait to see what this brings all those idiot elitists hehe!
At least it’s got its priorities “straight.”
Now CT is one of the states with the highest rates of Unemployment. With this "From-To" you think the legislature would focus on more important things like a business climate?
It is amazing what a bizarro-lands the Northeast Blue States and the Left Coast have become, the funny thing they want to do it to us all.....
There days I swear when I read this stuff we are in an altered universe, but the sad part is it is reality...
Why not an anti-discrimination law for flashers ?
You should be allowed to come to work wearing only shoes, socks and an overcoat. If someone doesn’t like it, it’s clearly disciminatory.
People should be allowed to discriminate against transgendered persons, just as people should be allowed to discriminate against schizophrenic persons.

Please, stop the insanity!
If I discriminate, I need to know if I'm endangering my job or liberty.
...or anyone else for that matter. I think we'd be a lot better off if we went back to respecting property rights and the right of free association, even if it leads to "unfair" results that some people don't like.
This is why conservatives should always be wary of empowering the government to achieve social goals they desire. Eventually those powers will be used to bite you in the backside.
I agree. Stores used to have signs that went something like this:
“We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone”.
If someone is stinky, cursing, or otherwise behaving in an offensive manner, they can be shown the door. That is as it should be.
Freedom of association is a right that is fast disappearing.
Interesting stuff from the liberal north east, lol.
Sub out any needed work - off-site if possible
Who needs the creeps around
Who needs the lawsuits
Probably something related to them being allowed to use the woman’s bathroom even though they have a guys equipment.
One those weirdos worked at a supermarket that my parents shopped at. My mom refused to use the bathroom and even complained to management. They couldn’t do much.
Everybody were really happy when the nut quit.
Geez, so what, these people are mostly just pathetic messed up guys. So, what if they go into a stall to pee? It’s not like they are installing urinals in the women’s bathrooms.
Yeah. The are still guys and pee all over the seats.
Guys don’t have to worry about aim. Especially if its some stranger.
Lol, you can never know WHOs living next door to you anymore, is it a he-she or a she-he. I’ll leave off some other words I thought of!
this is just plain stupid now
When Weirdos Attack!
When Weirdos Transform!
Deport them all to San Franthisco!
Good spot. Looks like we ended a thread again, lol!
I am so sick and tired of this govt legislated divorce from reality, I want to scream!
There ya go. Tell them you are a black man born in a white body.
Things have gotten so bad, the environment in the NE so toxic, it is no longer pleasant to go anywhere. People, no matter where you travel are rude, no one talks to anyone, afraid of offending I suppose. You can't go out to enjoy dinner without being faced with offense of some degenerate kind that ruins the entire night. How on earth govt. can justify these irrational laws is akin to something off a horror show! WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE??
You are probably right - very sad - when I grew up in CT it was more stuck-up snobbish types that were idealists because they had money to be but they were against anyone who was different or not in the clique.
I’m moving to SC! It’s nice there....
Oh I know. I grew up in a very rich town, not fitting in at all being from a relatively poor family. And we used to play “spot the New Yorkers” on the town square. It was so easy to do.
Apparently this guy did.
A real nut. And not something I want my Mom exposed to.
