Ya Can’t Fire Someone For Who They Love Or Who They Identify As
And you shouldn't ever have done it in the first place.
The U. S. Supreme Court ruled, according to the NY Times, that the law now protects gay and transgender workers from workplace discrimination.
Justice Neil M. Gorsuch wrote:
An employer who fires an individual merely for being gay or transgender defies the law
A friend of mine told me about a year ago that his job could fire him just for being gay. I didn't believe it at the time, but it turns out, he was right.
Up until yesterday, an employer could fire you if you were a man married to a man or a woman married to a woman. True statement. Or, if you were born a boy and live your life as girl, you coulda been shown the door and vice versa. In the year of our Lord, 2020, these statements were true.
I'm not sure how this, like so many other things, became a political discussion. It's truly a personal journey for each individual who they want to be and who they want to love. I don't understand people who are against it. Because the Bible says so or you think that God doesn't like it? C'mon, now. The God that I believe in IS love, why would He be against it?
One of my closest friends is married to a woman and her wife's family doesn't accept them. To hear her talk about how much she loves her family and to see her cry because they don't accept her personal choices, just breaks my heart. This is a beautiful soul who misses her Mom and sisters, but is denied because she fell in love with another beautiful soul? That just doesn't make sense. At the very least, now she can't get fired.
