Liberal pander “arms-race” moves forward in New York City

(INTELLIHUB) — The New York City Commission on Human Rights is moving the leftist identity politics oppression machine forward with new “guidelines” (see demands that must be followed under the threat of government force) that detail the legal protections of transgender and gender nonconforming citizens to not be called by the gender pronoun they were actually born under.
Reuters reports that the city has warned landlords, employers, and businesses that it is now illegal for them to “purposefully” call a transgender woman “him” or “Mr.” when “she” prefers a female title and pronoun. Barring anyone who claims to be a woman from using a female bathroom is also now illegal.
“It’s a huge step forward and really catapults New York City to the forefront of the struggle for transgender rights,” said Michael Silverman, executive director of the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund, a non-profit law office based in New York, noted the Reuters report.
“This is an extremely positive development for transgender New Yorkers who face enormous rates of discrimination, unemployment and difficulty accessing things like health care that people take for granted.”
While most everyone can agree that each person should be treated with dignity, the authoritarian leftists who passed these guidelines aren’t spelling out how they will decide if someone is purposefully denying a transgender their preferred gender pronoun rather than just not being up to date with the latest crazed identity politics narrative of the day. Apparently the commission bureaucrats will just go with their gut.
It’s also important to note the sad irony of a law being passed that literally bans the use of words being cheered on by the ACLU and other so-called civil rights activists.
As Louder With Crowder so rightly noted, “Leftists like to divide people in to groups, tell one group they are oppressed and tell the other group they are intolerant bigots if they disagree. This year, the protected class du jour was transgenders, because thank you Caitlyn Jenner.”
“You must take part in their delusional, alternate reality or face legal consequences.”
