Consider The Kansas Discrimination Architect

An important Pitch profile: Meet Charles Macheers, the man behind the pro-discrimination bill in Kansas

Locally . . . It's interesting to see that most throughout Kansas City area not only object to the merits of this LGBT discrimination bill but also note the easy way that it could be used to discriminate beyond gay people.

Also . . .

AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS told us to look at Macheers fb page and it's overflowing with hateration from LGBT advocates and allies.

Of course this guy wants to discriminate!

He's from Shawnee, the home of Mary Pilcher Cook, the sonogram queen, Brett Hildabrand, unemployed but living in an apartment because the Governor's right-hand wing-nut co-signed the lease, and the Hanging Judge, John Rubin.

MENLO PARK, Calif. (AP) -- You don't have to be just male or female on Facebook anymore. The social media giant has added a customizable option with about 50 different terms people can use to identify their gender as well as three preferred pronoun choices: him, her or them.

Facebook said the changes, shared with The Associated Press before the launch on Thursday, initially cover the company's 159 million monthly users in the U.S. and are aimed at giving people more choices in how they describe themselves, such as androgynous, bi-gender, intersex, gender fluid or transsexual.

"There's going to be a lot of people for whom this is going to mean nothing, but for the few it does impact, it means the world," said Facebook software engineer Brielle Harrison, who worked on the project and is herself undergoing gender transformation, from male to female. On Thursday, while watchdogging the software for any problems, she said she was also changing her Facebook identity from Female to TransWoman.

"All too often transgender people like myself and other gender nonconforming people are given this binary option, do you want to be male or female? What is your gender? And it's kind of disheartening because none of those let us tell others who we really are," she said. "This really changes that, and for the first time I get to go to the site and specify to all the people I know what my gender is."

Is this about Kansas City Architect Eric Bosch. He's well known for these types of controversy.

Amazingly there doesn't seem to be enough support in Topeka to get this thing passed. Kansas may yet be able to avoid looking like a asylum being run by run by inmates.
