With same sex marriage already the law of the land in NYS, there is a move afoot now for a gender protection law to protect the rights of the transgender community to express themselves.
This may be a bridge to far for lawmakers who felt gay marriage was a reasonable accommodation.
Critics have dubbed the legislation "the bathroom law" because they claim it protects the right of trannies to use whatever public rest room they feel is appropriate.
Some years back a Watertown industrial company built a third rest room on the production floor when a transgender worker made members of his past and future sex uneasy.
My guess is the goal of advocates is to outlaw such responses to an awkward situation.
