    Forget all those people and their genders/sexes/whatever – isn’t the real question why your boss cares about what you do in bed? That’s really creepy! Eew!!!

    • Derek Fisher you what

    • @Bad Cattitude so normal straight guys don’t go around bragging on all the chicks they bagged? Your argument is very lacking it sounds like youve never even met one of those people because most of them dont advertise it and even if they did how could you blame them there prob just tryna find someone

      @Ayethere M8 straight guys dont have parades showing all the chicks they banged and making out with them in the streets with children twerking

    • @Derek Fisher Of course not…Straight people don’t need to have pride parades because you have never been through any type of discrimination , you seem to miss the point that its meant to restore pride in people …. You’d rather troll and claim all of us just roll around letting children twerk when i said clearly we are just as against that as your are, you’d rather talk ignorant then hear my point . peace

      @Bad Cattitude So you’ve never seen a heterosexual with a pic of their spouse/kids on their desk? They don’t wear their wedding rings or speak of their spouses? If the spouse picks them up from work they pretend to be “just friends” and won’t even hold hands until they’re out of the parking lot? They never mention liking TV shows, movies, or books with M/F romance? LOL, acceptance of heterosexuality is so normal you don’t even realize it exists. Open your eyes. Bigotry is so deep in your bones that you don’t know it’s there.

  2. I’m surprised this wasn’t already a thing wtf.

  3. Major civil rights case undone if you’re late to work by five minutes😂🤣

    Nice to see change happening but we all know if the boss wants you gone they will find anything to get rid of you.

    • @Ayethere M8 I didn’t think it mattered if I deflected cause I didn’t know I would have to explain a comment to you that is literally in front of you to read yourself.

    • @Mr Popeye So your saying that lgbt (or whatever there called) rights should be out aside because we have other problems? I deff beg to differ because the The constitution you stand by literally states that every person is created equal as one of the most important statements so to say that peoples rights should be pushed aside because we have other problems is easily hypocritecal straight up , yeah theres bigger problems going on no s*** …but If you have the time to type this to me online explain to me why 12 judges court can have the time to find everyone equal?

    • @Mr Popeye also why are you so stuck on telling me my intelligence ? you do realize i never said i was incredibly smart or had a super high IQ so idk where you’re getting that from , this is honestly was a small issue to the court i don’t see how you think its getting in the way of anything at all

    • @Mr Popeye and finally of course i do read your comments i think you didnt even read half of mine because you would see i was responding to your “priorities” …. The only real issue you even stated was worldwide car crashes and of course the riots which is the most random bs ever because they started happening after this ruling was already being considered … I hope you know the supreme court has already done a huge amount to make vehicles safer , seriously im beggining to think your the one deflecting because your puny iq leaves you incapable of seeing things rationally

      @Mr Popeye well why quote a national malpractice figure followed by a global car accident stat? And why is a U.S supreme court decision on civil rights related to a global car accident problem? I read as much as the next guy, but cannot connect your dots. I agree that car accidents are a problem. Now can we get back on topic? Wtf

  5. So, is June 15th the first historically good day in 2020?

    that was about congressional separation of powers, but ok…

  7. a big nothing burger… at will employees can be fired for no reason at all.

      Why can’t Pelosi and the rest of that club be terminated .They don’t work , no you don’t get to pretend you’re working when you’re doing nothing but complaining (nit-picking) every little thing Our President does or says. They waste tax dollars..The do nothing for their District, hmmmmm wonder why they always get to use the money that’s probably for more important things. Division of people is not working, they force themselves into everything that does nothing, unless it creates chaos.

      @Taun Taun’s Mr. President well we’re all special like it or not…

    • @KamekoBruns ever seen a white guy Sue over getting fired cuz I see a thousand blacks everyday do that

      @Esther Axenty Errr no. No we aren’t lol.

    So, nothing new?

  9. Vladimir Grigorov | June 16, 2020 at 8:27 AM | Reply

    And that’s why there is a thing called At Will Employment.

  10. Let me know when they roll back affirmative action.

  11. why is there music iin the background? you can barely hear the speakers!

  12. that WASNT a thing already???!!!

    This sounds wonderful but the difficulty is in proving that’s why someone is fired

  14. What about the right to work states where they can just fire you without giving any reason? Will that not count

  15. At first I thought that the Supreme Court was firing LGBT people and I got mad, but then I read and then got better.

  16. Justice Boofer | June 16, 2020 at 9:24 AM | Reply

    Up to you and your lawyer to prove they fired you for that reason. $5,000 or more. And you could lose your case.

    Could Gorsuch truly be an impartial judge?

  18. the ART of LaPierre | June 16, 2020 at 9:32 AM | Reply

    DADDY must be SOOOO happy now

  19. Why don’t blacks just say they identify as white. It’s worked for trans people!

    Doesn’t matter for “at will” employee states at all…and there’s more of those than not so this changes very little.
