Would the Equality Act Save Us From Discrimination?

This is part 1 of a discussion with my wife Chelsea about the Equality Act and our deep concerns about its consequences.

We address these basic questions:

  1. What is the Equality Act?
  2. What is "discrimination" and is it always bad?
  3. Does the Equality Act correctly cite the Fourteenth Amendment?
  4. What are some biological differences between males and females?
  5. Can we truly avoid biology if we can't "discriminate" based on "gender identity"?
  6. Can Christians recognize "gender identity" struggles without championing them?
