    Why would that be? The issue with fascism is not necessarily the authoritarian nature of it specifically. It is the intense nationalism and xenophobia attached to it.

    Isn't harassment already defined legally? This screams out legislating out assholes and rudeness.

    So as long as the totalitarianism uses gender neutral pronouns and enforces complete and universal androgynous conformity, we're one step closer to TRVE VTOPIA.

    Wait wait, not sure if I'm reading this wrong..
    "barring a transgender woman from a women’s restroom out of concern that she will make others uncomfortable"
    So a transgender person can make other uncomfortable, but if you make a transgender person uncomfortable you will be penalised? Because equality. Fuck logic.

    If you're uncomfortable around a trans person, that is for you to get over not for them to suffer because of. Chances are you'll never even know.

    Why don't they need to get over it? Why do others have to suffer?

    I agree that for most transwomen for example, using a male pronoun is just going out of your way to be a cunt. But legislation? This is what I mean when I say these faux-underdog SJWs are actually the establishment.
    Is there legislation against the word 'nigga' or 'heeb' or 'kike' or 'gook' etc?

    Edit: I love that I typed n-i-g-g-e-r and it got censored but those others didn't.

    I think i've read that Germany has similar rules in regards to Jews/holocaust from WW2 days, but I don't think there's anything like this in America. There's no way this can win a free speech court decision.

    In a workplace, I'd imagine so. At least the threat of a lawsuit would be high enough to make it de facto illegal.

    Yes but isn't this legislation dealing with harassment laws which would apply in the street/elsewhere? Workplace is a different thing altogether.

    I missed it the first time, but those guidelines now require businesses to provide health insurance for transition surgery? That's kind of out there.

    Why not just make it legal for trans people to rob people at gunpoint to fund their desired surgeries? It is literally the same thing, and saves a lot of paperwork/hassle for everyone.

    It don't think it's even figuratively the same thing, let alone literally.

    I feel uncomfortable and unsafe in my house, can I get money to buy a new one? Because it seems that you can't feel uncomfortable nowadays.

    How so? It isn't as if it's some cosmetic procedure with no actual benefits to their QoL and in some cases outright can prevent suicide.

    Cool, as long as you guys fund my hair transplant or maybe leg-lengthening surgery. Being a bald manlet can be a source of depression/suicidal thoughts too.

    Oh, and all my acne medication during my teens and early 20s. And Sally's nosejob.

    Come to me when those are on the level of gender dysphoria.

    But its weird how you use your own dissatisfaction with your life to compare to what trans people go through. Get over yourself.

    Even so, body dysmorphia is real though so...?
