The Wall Street Journal reports that “New York City’s Human Rights Commission is establishing what advocates called some of the most powerful guidelines in the nation on gender-identity discrimination.” The guidelines define what the city means by gender “discrimination,” which can lead to fines as much as $250,000. The guidelines apply to many businesses, landlords, and employers. Among other things, the guidelines stipulate that…
- Individuals must use the transgender person’s pronoun of choice.
- Gyms cannot tell clients which locker room to use. It must be left to the discretion of the patron.
- Objections from other patrons about bathroom/locker room use are not lawful reasons to deny access.
- Businesses/employers cannot enforce gender-specific dress codes.
