NYC adds 29 new gender terms to $250K fine list

New York City skylineFurther promoting “LGBT rights,” the New York City Human Rights Commission released its list of 31 different “gender identity” terms — 29 of them connoting various forms of deviancy — that employers, customers and landlords in the Big Apple must use to avoid $250,000 fines.

The LGBT-friendly list comes in the wake of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s support of transgender bathroom laws and his push for New Yorkers to boycott Chick-fil-A for its pro-family stance on same-sex “marriage” earlier this month.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins connected the Big Apple’s gender-term fine list to President Barack Obama’s recent LGBT-friendly edict forcing public school systems to de-gender their restrooms and locker rooms to accommodate “transgenders.”

“This is political correctness run wild,” Perkins told LifeSiteNews. “Where does the president’s bathroom edict go?

In December, the NYC Human Rights Commission made its initial announcement that it would expand its “anti-discriminatory protections” to include the compelled use of gender variations. The HRC followed up its declaration earlier this month by issuing a detailed account of how employers, customers and landlords could face fines of up to $250,000 for failing to use its terms from its list to designate gender-confused people in America’s largest city.

Perkins warned that New York City’s new LGBT-friendly policies hurt businesses as much as they hurt families.

“At some point, businesses will have to push back because this will become very costly,” the pro-family advocate pointed out. “In terms of hiring and public accommodation, gender is defined solely by the individual — not by biology or medical and legal documents.”

He went on to explain that besides businesses, faith-based organizations and institutions should be very concerned over such measures.

“Imagine subjecting a church pre-school or religious charity to these rules,” Perkins continued. “A finding of noncompliance could financially destroy them.”

LGBT indoctrination 101?

The latest expansion of policies to accommodate New York City’s LGBT community made it clear to employers that they must choose from the HRC’s list of 31 different gender names to appease their employees — if they so desire. If an employer intentionally misnames his or her employee, a fine as much as $125,000 can be issued. If the employer refuses to use the desired gender-identity term “maliciously,” a fine up to $250,000 can be assessed.

HRC Secretary Seth Hoy clarified that unintentionally designating a gender-confused person with an undesired pronoun is not punishable by law.

“Accidentally misusing a transgender person’s preferred pronoun is not a violation of the law and will not result in a fine,” Hoy explained to the Daily Caller.

The extensiveness of the NYC Human Rights Commission’s list is already mesmerizing to many, but it is noted that the 31 terms is still not all-inclusive — according to LGBT standards.

“Unhelpfully, the New York City Human Rights Commission does not list trans pronouns in its most recent dictum,” LifeSiteNews reports. “But its list of nouns alone would need several nights of memorization.”

A review of some of the terms will reportedly be quite confusing for many.

“Some are familiar, such as ‘drag queen’ and ‘transgender,’” LifeSiteNews’ Steve Weatherbe informed. “Others are more obscure, such as ‘agender,’ ‘femme queen’ and ‘hijra.’”

Going even further outside the box when it comes to one’s gender, other gender terms transcend the pro-LGBT dictum drawn up by America’s most liberal universities.

“Some, such as ‘gender bender’ and ‘gender blender’ are new enough to have escaped even the notice of the University of California Berkeley’s glossary of LGBT terms, and — unfortunately for Manhattan employers — the HRC provides no definitions,” Weatherbe added.

Here is a look at how the UC Berkeley instructs students to “correctly” designate “gender neutral” individuals — with pronunciations in parentheses: Subject– Ze (zee); Object– Hir (here); Adjective– Hir (here); Pronoun– Hirs (heres); Reflexive– Hirself (hereself).

Unnatural and ungodly

Such pro-LGBT verbiage and regulations have been condemned by Pope Benedict XVI as an assault on the Judeo-Christian understanding of humanity.

"According to this philosophy, sex is no longer a given element of nature, that man has to accept and personally make sense of: it is a social role that we choose for ourselves, while in the past it was chosen for us by society,” he voiced in 2012. “The profound falsehood of this theory and of the anthropological revolution contained within it is obvious. When the freedom to be creative becomes the freedom to create oneself, then necessarily the Maker himself is denied and ultimately man too is stripped of his dignity as a creature of God, as the image of God at the core of his being."
