I think it will someday too, just not in the current political environments. Right now, there’s a lot of “last gasp” of pushback against novelty.
It’s hotly debated in state courts. Limited protections in some states, none in others. Here’s two views:
The Seventh Circuit reasoned that “any discomfort, disapproval or job decision based on the fact that the complainant — woman or man — dresses differently, speaks differently, or dates or marries a same-sex partner is a reaction purely and simply based on sex.” Thus, any distinction between a gender nonconformity claim and a sexual orientation claim is non-existent. The court also held that bias based on sexual orientation constitutes associational discrimination because “if we were to change the sex of one partner in a lesbian relationship, the outcome would be different.”
But the Eleventh Circuit in Evans v. Georgia Regional Hospital held it was bound by past precedent holding that sexual orientation was not a protected characteristic under Title VII. In a concurring opinion, Judge Pryor reasoned that the EEOC’s argument that sexual orientation is per se discrimination based on gender stereotypes and is thus protected under Title VII “relies on false stereotypes of gay individuals.” In particular, “by assuming that all gay individuals behave the same way or have the same interests, the [EEOC] and the dissent disregard the diversity of experiences of gay individuals.”
If one says “genetic”, another says: “EUGENICS WILL FIX”. If one says “choice” another says, “SHOCK THERAPY”or “Y’all need Jesus”. So, it’s just a circular debate.
tbh religion’s more a choice than orientation (which I suspect is pretty fixed around puberty at the latest and its discovery after that) and it’s pretty well protected.
How that relates, I dunno.
Hitler was 5′ 9″. Mussolini was 5’6″ Churchhill 5’6″.Napolean was 5’6″. So, wear wedges in your shoes.
Danny DeVito is 4’10”. You got nothing to worry about.
I’m that size between XL and 2XL that doesn’t exist. Big and Tall? No. Regular? No. Annoying. So, I look like shit most of the time. Still, I always get noticed but I don’t want to be. It’s annoying.
Going through clothing rack. S, M, L, XL. Have to settle for XL although it’s skin tight. Or search for 2X, pay more and swim in them.
I’m right at the edge of normal. Just a tiny bit past. That’s all.
What about boys clothes though? Gotta be a size there.
“You just described my entire life”
Ah. I gotcha. Probably feels odd. It wouldn’t bother me, I don’t think but maybe it would. I guess we got opposite end of the spectrum probs.
big = dopey + stupid, only good for getting stuff off shelves. But I’m usually the guy that goes, “HEY” when I see bullying or stand there with arms folded (as if I’m gonna do anything). It stops fights. Still, I didn’t ask to be peacekeeper, I just gotta do it.
I don’t like getting into fights. Naturally strong, I cause damage to people or property. So I gotta be fucking responsible adult. Probably for the best but short guys always get into fast fights that almost look like fun.
I was never taught but I know I could and that scares me. Nieces + nephews, I always have to be super careful. Always holding back. Wouldn’t want to let loose.
I reason with, or threaten by standing up. Good thing is, we got black bears here in my yard and I can scare them off, so that’s good.
That was a 70s movie which morphed into a conspiracy theory that grew through to today, getting more elaborate along the way.
I had a funny crazy neighbor as a kid that believed: the NWO was created by Nixon and the Trifecta commission and the Catholic church was behind it, and that Hitler was alive in Brazil and Argentina. He was REALLY entertaining. I’m old – a kid in the 1980s – but he was nutso. Funny though.
