Eugene City Beat: Transgender law proposal to get airing
The proposed law would make it illegal to discriminate against transgender people in employment, housing and public accommodation.
The proposed law also would make it illegal for an employer to deny access to a restroom that a worker "deems most appropriate for the employee's gender identity." It also would be unlawful for a health club owner to deny someone the use of showers and locker rooms if the person believes that the facilities fit his or her gender identity.
Law proponents are willing to speak to church and other groups, Rich said. "We are trying to connect the faith community with the gender identity work group so we can dispel the hate and fear," she said.
This law will allow a 40 year old man to shower in the woman's locker room at the YMCA. That man could then go into the woman's restroom in Burger King. But thankfully the "gender identity work group" is going to dispel the hate and fear that we have regarding this because we are just being unreasonable to say that grown men shouldn't be sharing a locker room with our wives and daughters.
