The Supreme Court has court has ruled in a six-to-three verdict that members of the LGBTQ community are in fact protected under Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights that bans discrimination on the basis of race, religion, national origin and sex… As of today everyone can claim protection under the act simply by claiming they identify with one of those–science be damned…
This has been an ongoing issue since President Trump took office. Many wrongly believed the Trump Administration was fighting the inclusion of the LGBTQ community under the statute because he hates them… The truth is the only way the LGBTQ community can claim exemption under this is if you don’t believe in science and we all know how much the liberal Democrats believe is science… The idea that you can change your sex either by detaching, attaching, or just pretending you have or do not have certain parts of the human anatomy is ridiculous… The quickest way this could have been resolved would have been for Congress to change the law to include the LQBTQ community but that would require them to leave a paper trail supporting or opposing something and politicians don’t like doing that.
Neil Gorsuch had a different take on the subject though and wrote the following:
“Today, we must decide whether an employer can fire someone simply for being homosexual or transgender. The answer is clear. An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex. Sex plays a necessary and undisguisable role in the decision, exactly what Title VII forbids.”
In the end I don’t suppose it really matters… Regardless of what anyone thinks, as the saying goes “it is what it is…”
