Protected class in Cincinnati

Sometime ago, I heard that Cincinnati, OH, prohibits discrimination against Appalachians, and this may even be true, according to this ordinance, where the word "discriminate" is defined to mean "to unlawfully segregate, separate or treat individuals differently based on race, gender, age, color, religion, disability status, marital status, or ethnic, national or Appalachian regional origin."

The Hillbilly Sophisticate notes here that Appalachian cities should pass similar ordinances protecting "ferners" on account of their "ferness."
