Fort Worth debate leads to protecting gender choice – By Mike Norman

You could tell from what was said at Tuesday night’s Fort Worth City Council meeting that there was a lot of resentment running just beneath the surface.

Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people were there to advocate expanding a city ordinance to outlaw discrimination based on transgender traits, gender expression and gender identity. They decried “fear tactics” and “smear campaigns” from those who oppose their lifestyle and said Fort Worth should be known as an “inclusive” city.
