Refuse services and access to homeless transsexual women

Another proud to be Australian moment:

"The Attorney-General, on the recommendation of the Anti-Discrimination Board of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, has granted exemptions from the Anti-Discrimination Act to allow publicly-funded refuges Mission Australia and Edward Eagar Lodge to refuse services and access to homeless transsexual women."

Whether this is ignorance or cruelty is unclear. Either way, you can stand and be counted against this.
