Here’s the latest in out of control liberal, political correct fascism.
It figures that this sort of ridiculous law would pop up in either San Francisco or New York City.
As if the U.S. needed still more laws legislating political correctness, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Commission on Human Rights now claims city businesses and entities which ‘fail to address customers by their preferred gender pronouns,’ such as Mr. or Mrs., could face fines up to $250,000.
In a “legal enforcement guidance” issued under New York City Human Rights Law, “employers and converted entities” are now required “to use an individual’s preferred name, pronoun and title (e.g., Ms./Mrs.) regardless of the individual’s sex assigned at birth, anatomy, gender, medical history, appearance, or the sex indicated on the individual’s identification,” reported the Washington Times.
Though potentially well-intentioned, the policing of speech — and, in this case, subjective interpretation — represents the slipperiest of slopes, complete with grave financial consequences, particularly for smaller businesses.
Issued in December, the mandate expands human rights law and notes some individuals prefer to be addressed by non gender-specific pronouns and titles, such as “they/them/theirs or ze/hir.” As the Times noted, the “former are plurals being drafted for use in the singular, while the latter are among several alternative pronoun systems developed by academics and/or LGBT communities.”
Potentially well intentioned?
How is that?
It’s a law designed to appease a tiny fraction of the population.
It’s a tool liberal politicians use to shore up a voting segment.
It’s a law designed to divide people.
It’s a law politicians use to divert attention from bigger, more important issues such as crime, police protection, or spending.
There is nothing good about this type of law.
It’s completely and totally wrong headed.
