    Nevada Gov. Signs Pro-Trans Law

    While Republicans in the South and Midwest are passing bills that strip rights away from LGBT people, Nevada's GOP governor signed legislation on Tuesday that will protect transgender people in the workplace.

    Gov. Brian Sandoval signed the transgender bill into law at a ceremony in Carson City. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that LGBT leaders were hopeful that Sandoval would be receptive to the legislation, as he previously served as a federal judge. AB 211, which goes into effect on October 1, says businesses with more than 15 employees cannot discriminate against people based on their gender identity or expression and people cannot be refused work or fired simply because they are transgender.

    It's estimated Nevada is home to 25,000 transgender people.

    We give Republicans a hard time generally...to be fair, lets give this Republican governor some praise for doing the right thing! It couldn't have been easy given the support Sharon Angle received in the 2010 Congressional election.

    Because as a homosexual you SHOULD have invested interest in transgendered laws. There's no difference between YOU, a man who likes to stick his penis up another man's asshole, and a TRANSGENDERED person who likes to have some other form of sex that is not a traditional 100% XY and XX heterosexual sex. Both homosexuals and transgendered folk share the same discrimination from people who believe that any lifestyle that deals with sex other than strict heterosexual sex from 100% males and 100% female counterparts is deviant and wrong.

    Also if you don't support transgendered folk then ima use force by smacking you upside the head with a rubber chicken.

    Now you show your support for other people sharing struggles similar to yours or I'll ban YOU from practicing your disgusting homosexual sins.

    Well the diffrence I see is. I was born a homosexual. But a Transgender person say a women trying to achieve the allusion of looking like a man needs, to have operations, and injections for the rest of her life, because she will soon find out only women bleed; big diffrence mate. Also men don't have vajaja's and many of the women only want to look like a man, but keep their vajayjay.

    This is valid proof that not all GOP politicians are controlled the lunatic, religious right wing. The GOP needs more politicians like the governor of Nevada in its ranks.
