NYC Will Fine You This OUTRAGEOUS Amount For ‘Misgendering’ A Transsexual
It seems the more progressive a city proclaims itself to be, the less civil liberties it affords its citizens. Case in point; New York City, where referencing a person either a “he” or a “she” could net you a $250,000 fine…yes that mere misplaced definition can cost you big time…and they say New Yorker's don’t have a sense of humor.
According to a new updated anti-discrimination law referencing a transsexual person “he” or “she” when they preferred to be called “zhe” can cost you big bucks.
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 “miss-gender” employees or tenants.
It would seem that this overreach of the “anti-discrimination law” will no doubt be contested in the courts, in that a valid argument can be made that regardless of what the political culture may be, those tiny strands of DNA encoded with those unique individual genes cannot be altered, and it’s those chromosomes, that may prove legally problematic for New York City.
Incidents that are deemed “willful 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.
Moreover, another strange paradox to this bizarre tale is the term “zhe” which by definition is a letter of the Cyrillic Script, which as no relationship to gender…perhaps it’s all those “chromosomes” working overtime.
This is part of the updated legislation:
The NYCHRL requires employers and covered entities 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. Most individuals and many transgender people use female or male pronouns and titles.
Some transgender and gender non-conforming people prefer to use pronouns other than he/him/his or she/her/hers, such as they/them/theirs or ze/hir
