Other towns see protection, little trouble with anti-discrimination ordinances

Council members in Missoula, Montana proposed an ordinance that would protect people from discrimination in their jobs and homes that would include sexual orientation, gender identity or expression. Opponents fear it will provoke criminal offenses in bathrooms.

That tired old bathroom scare defense. Despite the complete lack of evidence that such an incident has EVER occurred anywhere.

A rapist is going to rape regardless of the law. Allowing transwomen the right to use public facilities has no bearing on the issue.

It's been 11 years since Louisville passed a gender identity inclusive civil rights ordinance and despite what opponents in Missoula fear, no bathroom offenses here. Once the law was passed, the world didn't end and today it wouldn't stand a chance in hell of ever being overturned. I'm proud of that and proud of Louisville.

I believe that discrimination is always going to take place but regardless of the individual everyone should be treated equal.
