UPDATE: Senate Passes ENDA on Procedural Vote (!!!)
Memo to the Heritage Foundation: ENDA does not create “special privileges.” It extends employment protections that already exist under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include sexual orientation and gender identity.
Reality: ENDA addresses a very serious problem with widespread anti-LGBT discrimination in our country.
From Think Progress: 

Somewhere between 15 and 43 percent of LGBT workers, depending on the survey, have experienced discrimination on the job. Between eight and 17 were fired or missed out on promotions because of their sexual or gender identities. An extraordinary 90 percent of transgender individuals have been harassed at work.
