@worfShow me the discrimination, oppression, extreme violence, and
murders of left handed people, short people, and obese people. Transgender people face extreme discrimination that is finally being
recognized and remedied.
@worfYes these are also wrong worf and should not exist In a just
society. It would be great to live in a society were people understood it is not
all right to use violence and discriminate against others based soley on their
being different but sadly we do not live in that world making laws against
Thank you, Mr. President.
What about discrimination towards:* short people* left
Handers* obese folks
Excellent move on President Obama's part and long overdue. The T in LGBT
has always been overlooked and misunderstood. Anti-trans prejudice may not be
the last acceptable bias (as Time Magazine has recently touted*), but it is
certainly close.* The DesNews print edition reports today that
nobody wants an atheist in-law by huge margins over other groups and similar
polls show that people would vote for just about anyone over an atheist.
The transgender community receives more discrimination and more abuse than any
other group in the larger LGBT community. It's about time that protections
for them are finally getting some attention.
