So we've got a trans-inclusive ENDA, time to celebrate!

Or so I thought, till I actually looked at the language.

Section 8(a)(3) CERTAIN SHARED FACILITIES- Nothing in this Act shall be construed to establish an unlawful employment practice based on actual or perceived gender identity due to the denial of access to shared shower or dressing facilities in which being seen fully unclothed is unavoidable, provided that the employer provides reasonable access to adequate facilities that are not inconsistent with the employee's gender identity as established with the employer at the time of employment or upon notification to the employer that the employee has undergone or is undergoing gender transition, whichever is later.

So even if you've had sex reassignment surgery, you're still a tranny. I thought separate wasn't equal?!?
