How We Define Gender In Hawaii

(1/53) > >>

Dos Equis:
Our legislature has codified the following definition of gender:

"Gender identity or expression" includes a person's actual or perceived gender, as well as a person's gender identity, gender-related self-image, gender-related appearance, or gender-related expression, regardless of whether that gender identity, gender-related self-image, gender-related appearance, or gender-related expression is different from that traditionally associated with the person's sex at birth.

There are various statutes that prohibit discrimination on the basis of "gender identity or expression" in Hawaii, including in housing.  We are moving towards imposing this definition on employers as well. 

This isn't just about homosexuality.  It is about "gender-related appearance," which to me means a man dressing like a woman. 

Any opinions on this?

What should an employer do if they advertise a job opening for a receptionist and a cross-dressing man (not necessarily a homosexual) applies for the job? 

Should our military adopt this kind of definition too?

Brought to them by the homosexual rights lobby.

Boys have a penis.  Girls have a vagina.  Hope this helps them out.
