Just a bit of local reaction to a milestone, surprise win and a sing of changing times . . .


Kansas City Pushes Hard For More LGBT Satisfaction!!!

On back of landmark SCOTUS ruling, KC gay community pushing for more

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a landmark decision, extending protections against workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. "I think it really allows the queer community to just show up to work, bring their full selves," said Lance Pierce, founder of Outspoken, a group that works to help foster discussion around LGBTQ issues around Kansas City.

Equal Job Protection

Supreme Court ruling protects Kansas City LGBTQ employees from job discrimination

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that a landmark civil rights law protects LGBTQ people from discrimination in employment, a resounding victory for LGBTQ rights from a conservative court.The court decided by a 6-3 vote that a key provision of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 known as Title VII that bars job discrimination because of sex, among other reasons, encompasses bias against LGBTQ workers.The historic ruling has a Kansas City tie.


Conservative Values

Supreme Court, despite conservatism, keeps expanding gay rights

Five years after the US Supreme Court declared a fundamental right for same-sex couples to marry, the justices produced another landmark for the gay rights movement by ruling that federal anti-bias law covers millions of gay, lesbian and transgender workers.

Supreme Court finds federal law bars LGBT discrimination in workplace

"Those who adopted the Civil Rights Act might not have anticipated their work would lead to this particular result. Likely, they weren't thinking about many of the Act's consequences that have become apparent over the years, including its prohibition against discrimination on the basis of motherhood or its ban on the sexual harassment of male employees," Gorsuch wrote.

LGBTQs hop aboard the Democrat "Must-hire, can't fire, gotta promote" Affirmative Action scam train

^^^ that was the whole point of this, the alphabet soup of “different people” should understand now that President Trump is not their enemy, the votes should come pouring in come November. The lame stream media is melting down over this because after all, Trump,was supposed to be the enemy of all people but it turns out that he’s not, nevar was.

The lame stream media is running out of scams and lies to tell their brain washed and brain dead followers.

Trump 2020!

Donald Trump frequented the bars and clubs in New York City and is very familiar with all sorts of people. Trump doesn't have issues with gays but the people that work with Trump do have issues with gays.

Not really that big a deal all they did was more or less confirm the existing law covered the freaks as well.

That's the thing. If Trump's Supreme Court picks make liberal decision, than who cares if he's in power or not.

First CoVid-19!
Then Black Lives Matter!
Now supreme victory for LGBT!
All demonstrating that the public has the attention span of gnats.
Just like the elected clowns in Jackson County and KCMO.
About time to sneak a good highly-subsidized "project" through.
Defund the KC Port Authority!

Wow, lots of revisionist history here.

Trump is against expanding gay rights. His justice department argued against expansion in this case. They continue to reverse previous executive orders protecting the LGBTQ+ community. Trump is all in with his bigoted homophobic "Christian" base.

The only people pissed off now are those same bigots who thought Trump would deliver a conservative strict constructionist judge to the court. He didn't and the right wing is sucked again with another broken promise.

Now all of the people that jumped on the rainbow bandwagon to enact special accommodations within cities for the LGBTQIA2Z community have egg all over their face, at least that white creamy stuff looks like egg. The SCOTUS just said those special laws are not needed. So I now call on the local council people that rushed to force those laws on citizens and landlords should revoke those laws immediately. Now I get to say "I told you so".

This has nothing to do with affirmative action you ignoramus.

Oh wait, it does. When a competent person gets fired for being gay, that's affirmative action for the straight that gets the job.

"The SCOTUS just said those special laws are not needed."

And yet that would be "no longer needed." Weird.

hahaha Roberts and Gorsuch joined the majority opinion. cultural conservatism collapses in one generation.

"manifest destiny" needs to be updated. it means grabbing a continent from the native people so 150 years later we can have a coast-to-coast gay marriage nation with a global war-and-debt machine!

You’re not gay 607, but you are a trump supporter trying to pretend there is some “silent majority.” Wake up: there isn’t. If there’s one thing the maga crowd loves, its any attention. Its a party of “HEY HEY HEY LLOOOOOOKK AT MEE! IHAVEREDHAT!!!Looookkk!!!”
