Northeastern University law professor Libby Adler in a Boston Globe op-ed piece, commenting on a new Boston ordinance outlawing discrimination on the basis of "gender identity and expression," December 21, 2002:
Even non-transgender people may be victims of discrimination because they defy commonly held expectations about masculinity and femininity, such as the man who is fired because he is "effeminate" or the woman denied a promotion because she is "too masculine."
