What Pittsburgh is talking about

Pittsburgh added more inclusive language to its anti-discrimination ordinance, including definitions for the terms gender identity and gender expression.

Those terms weren’t previously defined, WESA reports. The city’s Commission on Human Relations brought up the outdated language during Pride Month. That commission is charged with enforcing the anti-discrimination law, according to Pittsburgh City Paper.

Gender identity and gender expression have been added to the protected classes of race, religion, ancestry, national origin, place of birth, sex, sexual orientation, familial status, age, status as a victim of domestic violence, handicap or disability, or use of support animals, per City Paper.

The changes also use gender neutral terms, changing words like “his” or “her” to “they” or “individual.”

One more thing…

You have to see this meme of Bill Murray as Pittsburgh neighborhoods and then the sequel of Jeff Goldblum as Pittsburgh neighborhoods. Let’s just say there’s a kerchief-wearing Murray as Lawrenceville and an unbuttoned Goldblum representing the South Side. You’re welcome.

Happy Thursday, all.
