Excerpt:Â The book Transgender Rights includes a chapter written by GLAD attorneys on â€œPursuing Protection for Transgender People through Diversity Laws,â€ meaning that transgenders can and will also use â€œsexual orientationâ€ laws to get their way. They have also used the argument that since â€œgender identity disorderâ€ is a disability, individuals can claim protection under disability law. (They donâ€™t like to use the latter unless absolutely necessary, since it admits a disability or disorder! But that legal argument was used by GLAD in the Brockton, Mass. transgender student case. Do anything that worksâ€¦) If Massachusetts passes H1722, things would be much easier. Besides the statutes specifically targeted by H1722, what other issues would be affected by adding â€œgender identity or expressionâ€ protection to our laws?
