The Pianist and the Handydyke got married a couple of weeks ago in Seattle. I couldn't go because I had the honor of officiating at the wedding of the Lady and the Kid in New York at the same time. Therefore, it was very important to me to have a stag party for the Handydyke.
Most Americans (about 73% in one recent survey) support federal civil-rights legislation prohibiting employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Indeed, so do most Christians, Republicans, and small-business owners. But contrary to common belief, there is no such law. Moreover, only twenty-one states ban sexual-orientation discrimination in employment and only seventeen ban gender-identity discrimination.
