    In a previous article, "NYC to Enact Legal Consequences for Using Wrong Pronoun with Transgenders," the government of New York City, headed by Mayor Bill De Blasio, indicated individuals could suffer legal consequences by using the wrong pronoun when addressing a transgender individual. One could/would be fined for saying "he" instead of "she," if the person was a male dressed as a woman. In days gone by, it was known as "drag."




    New York City did update its discrimination law to indicate that employers and covered entities could be imposed civil penalties "up to $125,000 for violations, and up to $250,000 for violations that are the result of willful, wanton, or malicious conduct." This update could prove crippling for small business owners should they be found in violation.

    Not being able to engage in "willful, wanton, or malicious conduct" without the possibility of being fined is a terrible price to pay for "not being PC."

    So whodey, do you support the right of your employer to address you as 'Sir liar and moron' in all official letters? It would after all be an accurate description would it not?

    That will cost you a couple of hundred thousand dollars for saying that.

    Thanks!

    Looks like you need fined as well, but I'll cut you a break on only charge you a cool even $100,000.

    It will be the duty of some bureaucrat to decide what those words mean, perhaps a bureaucrat with an ax to grind.

    Do I have to pay some sort of fine for this as well?

    Now that we have destroyed free speech, when do we burn all the books?

    Scratch that, book burnings would emit carbon emissions that would cause fines.

    How then do we now destroy books legally?

    It's not quiet as destructive as burning but it will have to due.

    Yes, and perhaps a bureaucrat has an axe to grind when someone is arrested for murder.
