This comment is more for the others voting and commenting on this than it is for my representatives. That being said, I still expect my representatives to read it. I hope everyone takes the time to read this and actually understand what it means before voting. This does not create special protection for only certain people. And for those saying there are no protected classes: yes, there are according to U.S. law. Legislation like Title VII and Title IX (if you don't know what those are please take a second to educate yourself) makes it illegal for employers and public educators to discriminate based on several categories, such as race and sex. This protection is available to white people just as much as it is to racial minorities. It is available to men just as much as to women. Adding sexual orientation and gender identity would just make it illegal to discriminate on the basis of those things. If you think an employer is discriminating against you because you're straight, you could still bring a claim. Several circuit courts have already read these categories into the existing law as a form of sex discrimination. So please consider that before dismissing it as unconstitutional because it just simply is constitutional.
