Ruling for Transgender Rights in MD – Christian Conservatives Seriously Freaking Out

TgLegislation passed in Montgomery County Maryland this week that protected transgender rights “when it comes to housing, employment, accommodation, and taxi service”. As you might guess, an uproar quickly ensued. Much indignation seemed to be about (well, on top of the fact that transgender individuals deserve rights in the first place) the issue that transgenders have legal access to the restroom of their choice. From here, it was a short step to “Co-Ed Locker Rooms in Our Schools!” Co-ed? They’re um, missing the point…

Given that transgenders got shafted in last week’s proposal of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, this is somewhat heartening.

And even better, watching conservative groups go apeshit. Ooh, the outrage!
