Hope for the Future

Remember what I said earlier about hoping that transgendered persons were included in Obama's vision of the future? Well, the new administration have wasted no time in setting up a new White House website. If you check out the link in the title, it's a listing of their goals for civil rights legislation. I am especially enamored of this section:

Fight Workplace Discrimination: President Obama supports the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, and believes that our anti-discrimination employment laws should be expanded to include sexual orientation and gender identity.

The italics are mine, of course.
