"Voters understand discrimination and don't want to see it allowed in the Commonwealth. Legislators seriously underestimate their constituents if they think voters don't get this.

"Every day in Massachusetts, transgender people lose their jobs, are evicted, suffer harassment, and are denied services because of who they are. Let's not tolerate that any more. Let's pass this bill."

--Mass. Rep. Carl Sciortino (D), lead sponsor of H1728--An Act Relative to Gender-Based Discrimination and Hate Crimes
