Boy = truck, girl = doll, divergence = scary: PA activist denounces non-discrimination pledge

by Jeremy Hooper

   Responding to the news that U.S. Congressmen Jim Gerlach and Robert Brady have signed a statement saying they won't discriminate against LGBT folks in their hiring practices, the American Family Association of Pennsylvania's Diane Gramley says to Agape Press:

"I don't know that they fully comprehend what the term 'gender identity and expression' means,"..."That phrase right there means that they are willing to hire men dressed as women to come to work -- and I don't think a constituent going into any of these congressmen's offices would want to encounter a man dressed in a woman's clothing."

To which we only have to say: "Except for those constituents who enjoy the way that chiffon blouses lay on a masculine frame. Those kids think it's a development long overdue!"

Gramley is asking the Congressmen to pull a Santorum and reconsider their signing of the HRC/GenderPac statement of non-discrimination. We, on the other hand, are asking Ms. Gramley to reconsider her belief that everyone's gender should conform to society's expectations simply because the alternative makes her and her cronies uncomfy.
