No. I am a transperson. I identify as a blue-footed booby. You just offended me! I demand that every place have a booby-only safe space. I will also be getting my feet tattooed a solid blue ... and feather implants.


I will also be requiring a private perch be installed so that I can do my business like a bird does.


I went for something nuetral. You kinda jumped off the cliff there.

Nice link...




c. Conditioning an individual’s use of their preferred name on obtaining a court-ordered name change or providing identification in that name. For example, a covered entity may not refuse to call a transgender woman her preferred name, Jane, because her identification says that her first name is John. 11

"Covered entities may avoid violations of the NYCHRL by creating a policy of asking everyone what their preferred gender pronoun is so that no individual is singled out for such questions and by updating their systems to allow all individuals to self-identify their names and genders. They should not limit the options for identification to male and female only"

I guess all businesses have to start saying "Hi, welcome to X. What's is your preferred gender pronoun?"

Seems a little rediculous

Good grief! This is going to make police descriptions extremely difficult and investigations very confusing.

That and do our best to make them as androgynous as possible.



Of course, that would put the fashion industry out of work. Think of the poor sta ... er ... think of the poor models (they're already starving).

Considering that you now can't specify gender and you already couldn't specify race.


"We're looking for someone about 5'8" tall and 200lbs ..."

Wait until the people who are short get upset and the people who are fat have their day in the victim sun.

"Somebody was killed and police are looking for the suspect whom they would like to have involved in the justice system ..."

Are you hoping no one clicks or something? Because there's nothing there to support the claim in your OP.

More confusing when they have to decide what prison they get sent to after they catch and convict.

For those doubting the validity of the OP.

That is the "Law" text itself.

Now that that's settled.

Well my "claims" are about government authoritarianism.

Sure looks like some is there.

It's only Nyawk being Nyawk. So after a missed pronoun, will the response from the Nyawker be "Are you talkin' to ME?"
