MORE INFORMATION ABOUT HB235

  

Gender Identity Disorder is a mental illess.   HB 235 is billed as a Gender Identity Non discrimination bill but is actually a punitive "viewpoint discrimination" bill.  This bill would  

·                     Force you to lie (about gender) in order to not be considered a bigot

  • Affect Workplace bathrooms, lockers and showers on the basis of "nondiscrimination."  

·                     Equate Gender Identity with appearance

·                     Promote cross-dressing on the job

  • Allow cross dresser and transgender teachers for any age student including pre-school and kindergarten.  (We heard of one little boy who ran home screaming after being told "details" about surgery to change gender when his teacher "transitioned".  He was worried about whether or not someone would do that to him!)  

 

  

Click here for a list of exemptions that Governor O'Malley supported when he was Mayor of Baltimore and which were included in that city's Gender Identity law.  Assuming that the legislators agree that it would be wrong "to force Marylanders to deny reality," an infinite number of disclaimers would have to be placed in the proposed state Gender Identity Bill in order to secure the rights of individuals to simply be honest in their everyday lives.

 

These disclaimers would be absolutely necessary in order to protect Maryland constituents from viewpoint discrimination imposed by their own Government and would have to include items such as "it is not discriminatory for individuals to 

  • Use pronouns reflecting birth sex."  
  • Suggest that life would be better for such individuals if they didn't transition and break up their own family." 
  • State that taking hormones unnecessarily is dangerous and surgery can have complications."
  • Etc. etc."   

 

 The bill is flawed and uncorrectable because in America no one should be allowed to force "their definition of reality" on others.  And at present, because of the power of special interests, we doubt that any disclaimers (protections for you) will be allowed in the bill.
