(Daily Wire) -- On Friday, the House passed the Equality Act, which ostensibly outlaws "discrimination" based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Every Democrat voted in favor of the radical, anti-science bill. It will certainly now die in the Senate, but its approval in the House is relevant and worth considering. If Democrats ever again control both chambers of Congress and the presidency, this dystopian piece of legislation will be one of the first items on their increasingly weird agenda.
Note that the bill, which amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964, specifically protects gender identity. Discrimination based simply on gender is already illegal. But gender identity is, rather than your actual gender, the gender you imagine yourself to be. In other words, with this law, Democrats hope to protect a person's imaginary gender. If a man says he is a woman, he is entitled to be treated like one. Which is exactly like decreeing that if a man thinks the moon is made of marshmallows, he is entitled to have that belief enthusiastically affirmed by every NASA engineer he comes across.
