British Columbia introduces bill to protect transgender people
'They have not felt protected,' says B.C.'s attorney general

The B.C. government has taken steps to protect transgender people.

After years of pressure from the transgender community, the province on Monday introduced a bill to add “gender identity and expression” to the Human Rights Code.

Dozens of transgender people and advocates came to Victoria to applaud the proposed change, including 13-year-old Tru Wilson.

Tru, born as a boy, gained prominence, when she fought the Ladner, B.C. Catholic school she attended so she could be treated as a girl. the gender she identifies with.

“Now it is crystal clear that we can’t be discriminated against, and it’s such a revolution for our community.” Tru said.

NDP MLA Spencer Chandra Herbert, who has lobbied for years for greater legislative protection for transgender people, referenced a Gandhi quote to describe the struggle.

“First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they attack you, and then you win,” Chandra Herbert said.

The provincial government has, in the past, argued that the change wasn’t needed. But  Attorney General Suzanne Anton said transgender advocates changed her mind.

“They have not felt protected, and they feel like they need the written clarification of the law,” Anton said.

If passed, the law would mean that employers can’t use a person’s gender to hire or fire an individual. MLAs were debating the bill Monday afternoon.

Seven other provinces also have language that explicitly protects against discrimination based on gender identity or expression.

okay but imagine all the amis carrying around little packs of gold star stickers to give to people when they make an accomplishment! not the big accomplishments.the little everyday ones that should be celebrated.   

Cosette and Jehan probably started it all but it slowly spread to everyone until it became amis tradition

Bossuet went a day without injury? Gold star! Ferre learned a new thing about moths or stars? gold star! Bahorel didn’t pick a figh all week? gold star! Grantaire got out of bed today? gold star!

then when they’re having bad days they can just look at all those stickers and remember they may not always be the best versions of themselves but “hey i got a gold star. i did something good today.”

also grantaire being bombarded by a determined enjolras with stickers on his bad days like “was a great boyfriend today” “didn’t forget my morning kiss” “knows how to make the coffee i like” “makes great art” and basically any reason he can think of
