  • To prevent them from cornering the market on houses with big closets. Women with lots of shoes have as much right to big closets as trannies with lots of sequinned gowns
  • Say what? That is odd. My guess is that they do not appear to be covered by The Maryland Fair Housing Law unless I am interpreting the law wrong. I'm not a lawyer and I don't reside in Maryland though. "The Maryland Fair Housing law, was first enacted in 1971. It states that it is Maryland's policy “to provide for fair housing throughout the State of Maryland, to all its citizens, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, marital status, or handicap; and to that end to prohibit discriminatory practices with respect to residential housing by any person or group of persons ..."
  • Which state is that? I thought the Realtors was a nationwide organization with nationwide standards
  • It specifically states or excludes transvestites? Wow. So this is relating to the real estate agent and who they have to accept as a customer, right?
  • Transvestites and the transgender are in a group that is discriminated against by pretty much all other groups of people including gays and lesbians. That makes them an easy target because there are far fewer people who are willing to stand up for them. That certainly doesn't make it right... it IS discrimination. Here in California, we are flooded with commercials that are trying to convince us that gays and lesbians shouldn't be allowed to get married. They claim that they are trying to save the sanctity of traditional marriage. I don't understand why they put that much energy into resurrecting the values of marital monogamy and parental responsibility
  • Remind me never to move to Maryland, but if ever I do, remind me not to market to the transvestite community. ;-) Seriously, we have no similar exclusion here in Minnesota. I suspect that no other State does either. Although I can't help but think that most agents, regardless of State, might feel a bit strange showing properties to a broad-shouldered "lady" with 5 o'clock shadow. ;-)
