Default Receiving Protected Class Status

Me.

Little old whitebread cisgender male me.

As an atheist.

The city council here in Puddle City, in its wisdom, has decided that they need to add 'unbeliever' to the list of protected classes who suffer from discriminatory behavior.

What I want to know is, does this mean I have to learn to play the blues?

Default Re: Receiving Protected Class Status

In Portland you would be protected as a cisgender white male already.

Laws that protect trans people would protect cis people at the same time. Likewise, as a male you are protected from gender discrimination, and as a white person, you are protected from racial discrimination.

This is, however, a little bit like the laws against sleeping under bridges applying to the rich and poor alike, especially in the case of being protected against anti-cisgender discrimination (which, uh... I have not exactly heard of this happening in any workplace).

But it's cool that they're making protections for atheism/unbelievers explicit. No word games about atheism not being a religion so it's not protected, etc.

That is awesome.

Do you get any consequent benefits? Special parking places, if you display an evolve-fish sticker? Smite-free zones in all places of worship?
