Supreme Court to decide on protection of LGBTQ employees

Supreme Court to decide on protection of LGBTQ employees

The Supreme Court is set to hear three cases on whether it is legal to fire workers because of their sexual orientation. The cases are the first to squarely address the question of whether anti-discrimination law protects lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workers. The main case involves Gerald Bostock who claims he was fired for being gay at Clayton County, Georgia juvenile court system.

Ok so in order to get you guys in the comment section to understand what is happening let's imagine this scenario: Let's remove white people from the Civil rights act of 1964. By doing so they should be fine as long as they stay in areas that are mostly white but what's going to happen if you're not in those areas and you happen to live in states that lean heavily to the left? Well they'll probably fire you for being white because they want more diversity and without being on the civil rights act you will not be able to sue them for that because you're not on the civil rights act. Here's a perfect example of how the civil rights act of 1964 protected these white men from discrimination of promotions and they won their case. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1017096 So now with that being said and done, why are we allowing gays and lesbians to be able to be fired or denied services because they are the same sex and they don't have the legal standing to be protected just like white people?

As much as I disagree with the consensus and the direction of the LGBT community I think they should be heard and judged accordingly. I don’t think they should be given special rights or protections that aren’t given to anyone else but their concerns should be voiced, just as anyone else’s should. Even if it is a really, really bad idea like gender neutral bathrooms in schools.
