Another bigotry move by hating tRump people. Trump Administration Petitions Supreme Court To Legalize Firing People Merely For Being Transgender

Trump Administration Petitions Supreme Court To Legalize Firing People Merely For Being Transgender

Dominic Holden reports at Buzzfeed News:

The Trump administration on Friday took one of its most aggressive steps yet to legalize anti-transgender discrimination by telling the Supreme Court that federal law allows firing workers solely for being transgender, arguing a Michigan funeral home could fire a transgender woman because she wanted to wear women’s clothing on the job.

Although the administration was expected to take the stance — and had previously said firing workers on the basis of gender identity is legal under federal law — the latest court filing asks the nation’s top court to establish federal case law in a potentially sweeping setback for LGBTQ rights nationwide.

  1. I am so sick and tired of these people and this garbage! I don’t even want to read the news any more because it seems every time I do there’s another story about how these hypocritical bastards are doing even more to try to demonize and harm people. Don’t they see what the hell they’re doing? They’re doing it to LGBTQ people now, and it’s only one small step to doing it to other classes of people. “I won’t serve blacks because my religion forbids it”. “I can fire him because he’s Jewish and I’m Christian”. But then considering what these jackasses are like maybe that’s exactly what they are eventually aiming for.

    • Hello grouchyfarmer. Yup, it is what they are trying to achieve. They want the joy of being able to be a dick to everyone they dislike with no consequence to themselves. The legal right to shit on people they find iky and different. Hugs
