Gay/LGBTQ employees are protected from employment discrimination, SCOTUS Rules

Gay/LGBTQ employees are protected from employment discrimination, SCOTUS Rules

The Supreme Court ruled that gay and transgender employees are protected under the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The decision eliminates discrimination of ’sex’, which under this ruling, now includes gay and transgender people. The ruling was 6-3 with Justice Neil Gorsuch and Chief Justice John Roberts siding with the other four liberal justices on the court.

This changes what exactly? You already couldn't be discriminated against based on your sexual orientation or gender.

When do I hey special status for being a white male that has the debilitating disease of being a fascist racist sexist? I was born with it and I can't be cured!

I dont understand why this is a big deal? I mean i think employeers should be free to chose who works for them for any reason, but honestly i thought this was already the law.

Bad move. Should have stuck with the protected categories that make sense. Discrimination based on who you sleep with was not one of them. It should also not cover when someone is acting flamboyantly gay as that can reflect on a companies image. Many companies need their employees to be well spoken and if you overly accentuate a fake lisp to advertise how gay you are you may not be a great fit, bit a gay man/woman that presents as normal may be just fine. That is not discrimination based on sexual preference since some gay people would not display that trait while others will overact it and draw attention away from the product or service.
