NYC Will Fine You $250,000 For ‘Misgendering’ A Transsexual

Did you call a transsexual person “he” or “she” when they preferred to be called “zhe?” According to a newly updated anti-discrimination law in New York City, you could be fined an eye-watering $250,000.

In the latest, astonishing act of draconian political correctness, the NYC Commission on Human Rights have updated a law on “Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Expression” to threaten staggering financial penalties against property owners who “misgender” employees or tenants.

Incidents that are deemed “wilful and malicious” will see property owners face up to $250,000 in fines, while standard violations of the law will result in a $125,000 fine. For small business owners, these sums are crippling.

There must be some first amendment protection against such a fascist law.

This won't stand a constitutional challenge. $250,000.00 will buy a pretty good lawyer.

To combat these zealots we must have the same intolerance of them as they have of us.

How you going to stop ridiculous? Folks sat back for 30 years denying the existence of the LGBT'S communities and fight for equality. Now we have to put up with their ridiculous. Just looking at the new Bruce Jenner makes me sick.
