I'm happy to read the inclusion of "sexual orientation" being as a US-wide protected class from employment discrimination, as this would save a lot of work at the grassroots level.

However, I am very sadened to read the continued musunderstanding of gender identity from even our supposed more enlightened members of Congress.

Anyway, I am looking forward to electing, or having, a President who doesn't campaign against Gay Equality.

Thanks for posting this Charlie.   I am very proud of my representative, David Wu, for being very supportive of all issues related to human rights.  Time for me to draft another letter....

I just wish they hadn't split them into 2 different ones.  Discrimination is still descrimination.
