Reflections on the EEOC Decision in the Mia Macy Case

Discrimination based on so-called “gender identity” is sex discrimination. Thanks EEOC! Here is the decision! EEOC in Macy Case Also, for all you stupid recent “trans activists” who think the EEOC decision “upsets” me, a history lesson (also reproduced below – and my thinking has evolved since 2000 some, because, at root, gender identity is sexist).
