Name: Rekha Mukherjee. Religion: Hindu. Age: No idea. Occupation: Stoic silence.
The team of officials led by Purnendu Banerjee, deputy registrar general (census), prompt the person shifting self-consciously on the plastic chair. "Go on, tell us what you do for a living. We have to fill up the column."

We Must Defeat Bill C-389 in the Senate
I believe it extremely important to defeat Bill C-389, the so-called “transgender” legislation that will literally open the washroom doors to sexual predators and voyeurs.
This private member’s bill was passed last week by the House of Commons. It must go no further. It is now up to the Senate to defeat this bill before it can create serious legal and social ramifications for Canada.

How Are Michigan High Schoolers Dealing With Their New Gender-Neutral Prom? (Terribly)

ENDA: The LGBT Community Has Ceded The "Bathroom Bill" Argument Without A Fight
It seems that whenever a civil rights movement has been fought in the United States, the battles have included public restrooms. From the segregated restrooms of the Jim Crow south, to the "unisex bathroom" arguments used in the fight against the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), to even the repeal legislation for Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT) -- where Elaine Donnelly and her Center For Military Readiness warned about the dangers of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people in bathrooms and showers -- the public restroom has been used as an essential feature for pushback against civil rights and ordinary equality.
