On Wednesday, the Department of Justice filed an amicus brief in the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals arguing that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964does not prohibit discrimination against gay and bisexual employees. The DOJ’s brief was not solicited by the court or any party to the case. Rather, in an unusual move, the Trump administration elected to weigh in with an aggressively anti-gay stance, arguing that gay Americans have no protection against workplace discrimination under federal law. Its decision is unsurprising in light of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ vigorous opposition to LGBTQ rights.

Title VII does not explicitly outlaw sexual orientation discrimination in employment. However, it does forbid “discrimination … because of sex.” which the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission interprets to encompass anti-gay discrimination. For at least 15 years, many federal courts have agreed, and in April, the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Title VII does, indeed, protect gay employees. Both the 7thCircuit and the EEOC relied on three theories of sex discrimination:

How about being discriminated against for being a white male?   I've been the victim of that.  A month or two ago I posted a long message about how it was impossible for a white male to get a job working for the county where I live.

Maybe it wasn't because you are white, or male... maybe it was because you're a homo... or just grossly incompetent.

Ok.. so quit being GAY! JK. Ok so what? This seems to be more about guys who want to be like "HEY I SUCK DICK." Keep it to yourself. This is a nothing burger. Straight guys don't go around saying, "Oh I love to eat pussy! It taste so good. MMMM I love that pussy.' Come on. The military kills people all day long every day. What the f+++ do you expect?

Since affirmative action, it's most likely due to having a white penis.     Civil service tests are treated like SATs where you get to score less points to get then job by the more oppression points you have.
