OMG!  this has CLEARLY been the Homosexual agenda all along!  Look at it it, even the initials of the Act (EDNA) is a coded  reference to the most famous transvestite of all time.....Study it out people!

And dentists won't be able to fire their assistants for the awful cheek of being pretty anymore.

A lot of people get fired for personal things that have nothing to do with their work ability.

The frc seems obsessed with gay sex and the gay lifestyle to an almost unhealthy degree. I know a couple drag queens and THEY don't talk about gay sex this much!

Un-fireable Drag Queens is the name of my Scissor Sisters cover band.

Wait, silly me. I reread the article: Still would be just fine to fire attractive dental assistants or ugly secretaries.

A dystopian world where drag queens perform in Christian bookstores, transgender people defecate in the room as women, busloads of gay employees come to work,

But enough about your personal fantasy?

And does the "transgender people defecate in the room as women" make any sense to anyone?

The idea that a trans* woman using a woman's restroom freaks these people out.  Just look at how they're yelling about California's trans* student bill.

I still haven't figured that one out. Seems like they accidentally a word. But even after using spells and enchantments to find out what they're getting at, it looks like they're complaining about the idea of transgender folk being in the same bathroom as them. As if knowing that the chemical warfare being waged behind a stall door includes splashback on a nutsack offends their delicate sensibilities to the point of needing a fainting couch. I don't know what the complaint is. Every women's bathroom I've snuck into and been chased out of heard about has had one.

Well in their world only women use such delicate niceties as   toliets, men simply squat wherever thiy happen to be and perhaps cache the final product in case it is needed for flinging later ,apparently

Besides they are worried about the diseases these filthy drag queens mike expose thier good Christian wives to, after all do yo know how many STD those women ALREADY catch from toilet seats?   (it's a form of religious discrimination frankly, that the CDC refuses to recognize this obvious epidemic and issue warnings)

In fairness, that's because drag queens also have some other interests than just where to hide the sausage. It's also how to tuck the sausage, what tunes to dance to, and what the b*tch Toni was thinking when she decided to steal that set list. Well, that and paying the rent, keeping a job, and actually living a gottverdammt life that doesn't focus on all the folks you despise possibly living without shame and regret.

In equal fairness, one of my co-workers and friends at Mesa Verde was easily the gayest Sioux that I've ever known, and Chaske put a LOT more thought into my sex life than I did, and bitter as f*ck when I started dating a gal from up the mountain. I mean bitter and ebbil to a woman he had been close to for months, and here all this time I thought that he just wanted me to drive him to Taco Bell when he was drunk as Hells...

Also, just because they are transvestites or drag queens doesn't mean you won't be able to fire them for not following company dress codes or other codes of conduct. It's not like they'll show up to work wearing chaps and peacock feathers. They make it seem like if you can't fire a gay person, then you have to allow them to have sex with their partners in the conference room.

But they might defecate in the restroom as a woman.  Don't you understand how horrifying that is?

What the Family Research Council fails to mention is that ENDA comes with a series of religious exemptions which covers churches and schools which are geared toward positions which involve teaching and allows them to discriminate based on how closely people follow their religious tenets.

The FRC being disingenuous in their arguments? Say it isn't so!

I remember this as a talking point back in the 90's. "Cross dressers are going to take your jobs! Perverts are going to say they're 'trans' just to use the women's rest room! Booga booga!"

I guess conservatives are as just as reluctant to accept new rhetoric as they are changes in society...

Over the years, I've hired people of different races, religions, genders, ethnicities, political leanings, age, and even nationalities. I have hired ugly people with bad teeth, and beautiful people, tattoos and earplugs and people who could have been extras in Pleasantville..

I have fired the same.

I have fired people for missing work, for doing bad work, for having too much "attitude", for being lazy, for not getting along well with co-workers, for not getting along well with clients. Once, simply for simply not getting along with me.

Work performance is not, and should not ever be the sole criteria. I, and I alone have to ensure that the team I have here is functioning properly and working well together. Since the Federal government is not going to provide me with either funds or staff that meet my needs, their role in who I hire and fire should be as little as is reasonably possible.

If I have a Jehovah's witness making people uncomfortable with his religion, or I have a woman making people uncomfortable with suggestive behavior, or a guy making people uncomfortable with his politics, I may have to let them go. A homosexual is no different.

So yes, I may fire a Jehovah's witness "because" of his religion, or a man "because" of his politics, or a woman "because" of her gender, and a homosexual "because" of his or her sexuality. It's a private business, employment is optional, and they can quit at any time whether I want them to or not.

Not everything needs a federal law. Gays are getting and keeping jobs just fine. obnoxious assholes who make their personal life an issue at work will always have trouble keeping a job, no matter what their sexual preference is.

My BIL works for a large backbone internet provider.  There are quite a few people in his office.  About a year ago they hired a transgender dude.  Somedays this guy comes in as a male - Khakis, Polo/Dress Shirt, and that's that.  The next day he will come dressed in full on, over the top drag, with the big wig, ridiculous makeup, 8" heals, the works.

Things got really difficult the first month or so with the bathroom situation, apparently whatever gender this guy was dressed as, he went into the proper bathroom for that gender.  Obviously the women of the office were not pleased with a man taking a dump next to them in the next stall.

Rather than face a lawsuit, hastefully over the course of like a Thursday - Tuesday, the company had a single person "unisex" bathroom built to address the issue.

Apparently they brought in HR, his manager, some corporate directors, and an outside LGBQT consultant to have a meeting with this person to let him know that he is accepted, free to dress as he sees fit...but the bathroom situation was out of hand, and that he needed to use the unisex bathroom if he did not feel comfortable using the mens room.

Things were fine for a few months, then he started using the womens bathroom again.  They had a big meeting, and told him that it was unacceptable.  Time went on, he used his special bathroom, then he started using the womens bathroom again.

They fired his ass, and of course he is suing.

I like how the text of that warning is that Christian bookstores would be forced to accept people. As if that's the worst possible thing for a Christian to have to do.

It also sort of skips past the fact that, presumably, drag queens would not actually be performing while on the job at this wholesome establishment.

Still boggles my mind we allow them (religious institutions) to still discriminate for anything except who the clergy (or analogous positions in the various religions) employs.  If you're an office worker for the Catholic Church, or some Mosque, or Synagogue, you should be afforded all the protections available to workers in a similar position at a non-religious business or institution.

I mean, I understand the reasoning and hesitancy behind why we are forced to ignore blatant discrimination that would get other employers sued out of existence, but I don't have to agree with it.

This law isn't about not being able to fire someone because they're obnoxious. If you hire a gay guy, and he'shiatting on all the guys and making the enviornment uncomfortable and being a general nuisance of himself, I think even the libbiest lib there is will support your right to fire him.
