Sounds like an orchestrated hit.
When will folks say “Enough already!” to this sh!t??? This is sheer, pure idiocy. Decent peoples’ lives are being ruined by a small, vocal minority who somehow command the attention of the powers-that-be.
Schon genug...enough already!!!
I think this has gone way too far already and the Supreme Court or indeed any high courts should step in and resume adult supervision. People running businesses or managing public facilities should be free to use their best judgement about trans-gender issues. Sure, people have some limited right to declare their gender as they see fit, but I think there is a stronger countervailing right to public decency and predictable social behavior. Most of us would probably agree that in borderline cases, gender should be determined by sexual characteristics, testosterone levels, and commonly perceived details like body type, voice, mannerisms etc.
Rather than pushing the limits in the direction of unsupportable transgender behavior the law should be pushing back on the side of an orderly and morally uncompromised civil order. The analogy would be in terms of assault, if the law concentrated on enabling what people felt like doing (assaulting other people), and not on protecting people from being assaulted, then that part of the law would have degenerated like this part seems to be doing.
Business owners should have rights to manage their business as they see fit. All of this interference from the state is fundamentally opposed to the concept of liberty, and as for pursuit of happiness, that cannot be just a one-way street for transgendered individuals, at the expense of the happiness of others (I think the founders used the term happiness more as contentment than a big smiley face).
Common sense law will follow the election of common sense politicians and the appointment of common sense judges.
As for lawyers, that might be a bridge too far.
