Re: Re Justice Dept. Weighs In Against Protections for Gays in the Workplace

It doesn't matter whether you are green, black, white, yellow or red. Neither does it matter whether you are a male gay or a lesbian, transgender or "straight".

Hahaha, what a load of old twaddle, every moron in the world has muttered the 'green yellow and red' one. Can't you think of anything original to say?.....hang on a bit I'm being unfair, you did come out with an original chunk of Mandarin meaning it to mean kou3 shi4 xin1 fei1. Perhaps you can tag 'Martian' onto your chocolate-box-selection "lesbian, transgender, straight"- Maybe that little green fellow will understand, not so straight, arse-about-face Chinese Hahaha?

What does matter indeed is what you can bring to the table as a teacher if you are one and are working as such. In other words, your education and personality will need to stand the test. Stop playing the victim, be professional as a teacher, raise your head, have self-confidence and get a life!

As long as we don't bring swill to the academic trough, eh-Hahaha!

Re Justice Dept. Weighs In Against Protections for Gays in the Workplace

So, today it's transgenders banned from the military, then it's gays, and women, and blacks, and latinos.... Where does it stop?

And it won't only be in the military. This article is about employee/employer relationship, in this case a sky diving instructor.

Be a shame about the blacks and them Latinos, the blacks have a good record in the army- but why do you lump women and gays in with blacks as if they all were second class people? You need to be less offensive to women and gays, Arthur. Just a tad insensitive. You could almost say, women ,gays,and reformed criminals- Hahaha?

The Department of Justice has filed court papers arguing that a major federal civil rights law does not protect employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation in a case now being considered by a New York appeals court.

The department’s decision to file a brief in the case was a rare example of top officials in Washington weighing in on gay rights in what is an important but essentially private dispute between a worker and his boss. Civil rights advocates criticized the filing not only for its arguments, but also for having been made on the same day that President Trump announced on Twitter that transgender people would be banned from serving in the military.

Re Transgender to be banned from serving in the military

Even the Boy Scouts are now accepting trans gender.

Good for them. I think you'll find that the Trump administration is ingratiating itself to the Muslims and other Fundamentalist groups. Trump should stick to throwing unneeded immigrants out on their ears- get on with what they were voted in for, which wasn't to put trans-gender and homosexuals back to where they were 100 years ago.

Re Transgender to be banned from serving in the military

This is going to affect a lot of people: "There are [...] at least 15,000 transgender people actively serving in the military, according to the National Center for Transgender Equality."

We certainly shouldn't do anything to make Muslims and the like believe that we also believe transgender people are inferior, and banning them from the military will send out that message.

Transgender to be banned from serving in the military

I knew it!

You see him with the "LGBT for trump" banner on this campaign photo of last year. What idiots could have voted for him.... We all knew that he would take away as many of our rights as he could.
