Transgender People Are Legally Protected From Bias In The Workplace

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruled sex discrimination laws cover people who have switched sexes. The case involved a man who applied for a job at a contractor to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Mia Macy, now a woman, claimed a job offer was withheld when the agency learned of her impending sex change. She is an Army veteran and former policeman. The Transgender Law Center took up her case.

Good place for them is Mexico or Iran. Certainly not in this country.
A better idea would be to purchase a $3.98 bag of sacrete and form it on the feet , then have them swim the wicomico. catfish need food too.

What is wrong with you people? One of the most admirable things about Eastern Shore culture is the philosophy stated by my grandfather:

"If you tend to your own business you'll have enough to do for the rest of your life."

The Eastern Shore culture is one of minding your own business, staying off other people 's property, and leaving other people alone.

A transexual person selling you your cigarettes or processing your drivers license renewal isn't an infringement on your well being in any real sense. If it upsets you, that's your problem. - David Hearne

What kind of sick twisted person compares someone with a sex change to a child molester?

You have serious problems.

The point was ....if a person pays taxes they should be aloud to do........ The response was not to compare.
