In New York City, you’ll soon be opened up to the possibility of a $250,000 fine for the “crime” of “misgendering” somebody. It sounds crazy — but there was one transgender teacher in Oregon who was recently awarded 60,000 after being “misgendered” by her colleagues. Good for liberals for finally figuring out a way to earn over $15 an hour?Still, at least those costs are only monetary. It’s not like anyone would suggest taking a page from any dictator’s playbook and throw any political dissenters in prison, right?
Enter: Canada.The Christian Post reports:
Canada’s Liberal Party government led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has introduced a bill that would ban transgender discrimination, including both gender identity and gender expression, with up to two years in prison for violators.
The bill seeks to amend the Canadian Criminal Code to expand existing “hate speech” prohibitions to include any public speech or communication that “promotes hatred” on the basis of “gender identity” or “gender expression,” and also the Canadian Human Rights Act, to cover transgender people.
