Congratulations, You're Fired! We do not like that you look gay. We do not like that your hairstyle makes you look like a lesbian. Are you a lesbian - You're fired. Why are you wearing women's clothing? We don't think that you should be using the Ladies Room - You're fired. Normal men do not wear pink shirts, you must be gay, You're fired. Women not wearing skirts must be lesbian - You're fired. Men do not wear make up - You're fired. We have heard that you date both men and women - You're fired. We saw you holding hands with another man - You're fired. You like Lady Gaga, you must be gay - You're fired.
In twenty-nine states - including the State of Missouri - you can be fired from your job for any of the above reasons. In thirty-eight states - including the State of Missouri - you can be fired from your job if your employer believes that you are transgender.
While you have been out to lunch, discussing DOMA, Maine, DADT, Congress has decided that the Employment Non-Discrimination Act is not important enough to bother them. While you have been out to lunch, your employer has decided that you are gay, simply by that fancy pink silk shirt that your mother gave you for your birthday. And he fired you.
While you were out to lunch, you were fired. Do you finally get the message that while you were out to lunch, ENDA got shelved and your boss fired you, simply because he doesn't like you, because you look transgender?
Call your Congressional Delegation, tell them to put down their lunch, and pass ENDA. NOW!
No, This "T" is not Silent. No, she is not going away anytime soon. Yes, she has called her Congressional Delegation. Have you?
