""We don't have an epidemic of blonde-haired, blue-eyed people getting fired or evicted. We do have a situation where gay and transgender people are being evicted and losing their jobs, not for job performance, but because they're gay or transgender."

--Will Carlson, Equality Utah's public policy director, in response to Gov. Gary Herbert's concern that an LGBT-inclusive anti-discrimination law would lead to "a special law for blue-eyed blondes ... or people who are losing their hair a little bit."
