By passing the Bathroom Law, otherwise known as the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (or GENDA), in January 2019, the State of New York gave persons who are confused about their gender identities the legal right to have that confusion accommodated by others. Specifically, the Bathroom Law:
- Requires New York’s shopping malls, stores, universities, restaurants, and recreational facilities to grant persons who identify as “transgender” access to opposite-sex locker rooms, changing areas, and restrooms;
- Requires New York landlords to refrain from discriminating against tenants and potential tenants based upon “gender identity or expression”; and
- Requires New York’s employers to accommodate employees who wish to dress and identify as members of the opposite sex in the workplace.
Recently, New York’s state court system has taken steps to further institutionalize our state’s gender insanity. Apparently, accommodating persons who identify as members of the opposite sex is no longer enough; the courts now wish to offer New Yorkers the opportunity to identify themselves using categories other than “male” and “female.” According to Spectrum News, the courts propose to revise juror information cards to include categories like “transgender,” “nonbinary,” and “other.”
At New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, we will not take our cues from any branch of our misguided state government. Rather, we will continue to lovingly stand for the truth: God made human beings male and female. A person can alter their appearance, but they cannot change their sex.
