If I was running a coffee shop, I would close up shop and move to another city with out such a mentally insane law. Lunatics are running the Asylum now. You can't operate a business under those ridiculous conditions and still be profitable. The fines alone for using the wrong gender pronoun would be enough to bankrupt you. What small coffee shop can afford to pay a $250,000 fine for calling someone the wrong gender pronoun. All it would take is one malicious asshole to complain to the city and poof there goes your business. This is absolutely ridiculous. Why aren't businesses in an uproar over this?

I will call people XX or XY DNA, and that's it, period.

If they don't like being called XX or XY, they can go back to biology class.

Yeah, I know the very occasional baby is born XXY. That's OK, I will call them XXY.

I am so sick of this stupidity.

I could make a longer thread of my own on this, been thinking how everything is backwards from what I was brought up with.

In the old school feminism of the 1970s, I thought the whole point was that it didn't matter whether you were male and female, you were a person first, an individual, not a member of some assigned group.

Now all of a sudden the thing that matters most is whether you are or aren't male or female?

Also I have been aware for some time, that women have had more freedom to dress the way they want to. A hundred or so years ago wearing bifurcated garments wasn't an everyday option for most women in the Western world. Now a woman can dress like a man and really, no one thinks anything of it, either it's not even noticed or maybe it's amusing.

So is a lot of this about clothing, and personal expression through dress? If a guy wants to wear a skirt or dress, does that mean he should be treated as a woman? Why? A woman wearing pants is still a woman. It doesn't change her to wear the clothing that used to be considered men's clothing.

It's just so bizarre that this stuff is such a big deal. I thought we went through a whole sexual revolution to make it NO BIG DEAL one way or the other. I thought people were people first, before it mattered about their sex.

This is so crazy and stupid it almost doesn't deserve a comment.

Hey, New York business owners: Get your staff to start asking everyone, when they walk in the door, what pronoun they want to be called by. It's the only way to make sure you don't get fined into oblivion, and maybe, after a week or two of being asked, "How would you like to be called?" by every business in town, the city will get so many complaints they'll have to back down.

Thanks you so much for writing this. I have been trying to say the same thing but have not been able to put it in words.
I tried hard to just let my kids be kids. Daughter ran with her big brothers...total tomboy who loved dresses once in a while. We were all trying to not stereotype according to a specific way of dressing, etc. Yet now, it seems like it has gone backwards in a totally exaggerated way and it is so confusing....I feel like the male female stereotypes are more engrained than it ever was....a lot more. Everybody is trying to dress like the opposite sex and that is supposed to mean something. Caitlyn Jenner wear fancy dresses all the time...normal everyday women usually don't. I just don't get what happened.

Re: New York City Lets You Choose From 31 Different Gender Identities, Businesses MUST Respect/Accommodate Otherwise Face 6 Figure Fines!!!
Individuals living in New York City can choose from a minimum of 31 different gender identities, many of which allow them to fluctuate between some version or combination of male or female identities.

Businesses that don’t respect and accommodate an individual’s chosen gender identity risk incurring six-figure fines under rules implemented by the city’s Commission on Human Rights.

The list of protected gender identities is available online and includes options such as “gender bender,” “two spirit,” “third sex,” “androgynous,” “gender gifted,” and “pangender.” A city official speaking on background confirmed to The Daily Caller that all of the listed identities are protected by the city’s anti-discrimination laws, but said that the list was not exhaustive.

...

Someone who identifies as “genderqueer,” for example, is a “person whose gender identity is neither man nor woman, is between or beyond genders, or is some combination of genders.”

A “gender bender” is someone “who bends, changes, mixes, or combines society’s gender conventions by expressing elements of masculinity and femininity together.”

Similarly, someone who is “gender fluid” is a person “whose gender identification and presentation shifts, whether within or outside of societal, gender-based expectations.”

If someone self-identifies as “androgynous,” it means they are “appearing and/or identifying as neither man nor woman, presenting a gender either mixed or neutral.”
