“[Boreland - executive vice president] was always rude, condescending and dismissive towards the Goodstein Production Team,” the suit alleges. “Ms. Boreland, however, treated the African-American staff in a much friendlier and respectful manner.”

They didn’t complain when they had slaves.. I would love to sue America for discrimination against black people.

New study: 60% of Muslims in the US reported religious discrimination in the past year

  • A new study from the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, a social science research institute, finally offers the public an accurate depiction of Muslim life in Trump’s America.
  • The study, released on Tuesday, found that a total of 60% of Muslims in the U.S. experienced some form of religious discrimination in 2016. 
  • The study also found that Muslim women (68%) are more likely than Muslim men (55%) to report religious discrimination in the last year. 
  • In addition, the report found Muslims are more than twice as likely as Jewish, Catholics and Protestants to be stopped at the U.S. border for additional screening.
  • ISPU’s study also found that Muslims expressed fear that the result of the 2016 presidential elections emboldened white extremists: About 38% of Muslims expressed fear over their family’s and own personal safety from white supremacist groups.
  • According to the study, about 42% of Muslims with children reportedly religiously-motivated bullying. One in four of these bullying incidents reportedly came from a teacher or school official. Read more (3/21/17 6 PM)

Gay workers may lose promotions, raises because of bias toward their voice, study suggests

  • Gay men and lesbian women may be passed over for leadership positions, and possibly even raises, because of discrimination related to the sound of their voice, according to new research.
  • During the study, published in March by the Archives of Sexual Behavior, sample groups were provided pictures and recordings of a mix of different speakers, some heterosexual and some not. 
  • The respondents were asked to guess speakers’ sexual orientations based only on the images and voices.
  • Next, researchers chose the speakers who were most likely to be perceived as homosexual and the speakers who were most likely to be perceived as straight: 
  • In a follow-up study, researchers played a short recording of the two “types” of voices and had subjects answer a series of questions about the speakers’ qualifications for an executive job listing. Study participants also had to supply a monthly salary figure they thought was fair.
  • Overall, “applicants” perceived to be gay were assigned lower pay and were more likely to be rated “in adequate” for leadership roles, regardless of whether they were male or female. 
  • The researchers also asked whom subjects would prefer to associate with, and found evidence of bias toward gay men. Read more (3/21/17 3:12 PM)

Asexuals have been in LGBT+ spaces all along, wether it be under their romantic orientation or otherwise labeled as bisexuals in the past. Because distinguishing between no attraction and the same attraction for all is difficult for many people. We are already here, and we can not be removed.

Asexual discourse ‘discussions’ is a courteousy at best, extending even the notion of consideration to a loud minority that wishes to expel us. It’s an exercise in acknowledging an opinion that has no actual barring on our standing as asexuals in LGBT+ spaces.

I by no means intend to dis-invalidate those of us facing trouble in our spaces due to aphobes and their rhetoric infecting our community. But ultimately our right to exist in our spaces has already been established. And that makes aphobes quite angry.

There is no war to fight here bickering with exclusionists. We expose the issue and report those who are inflicting harm, as we do with other bigotry.

Which is to say, don’t fret. Asexuals have always been here. And we always will be.

Discrimination & Threads from the LGBT

Hi,

Unfortunately we wont be responding to hysterical comments from the lgbt community. According to or team-leader its a waste of time. We already made our point. We hope you can be mature enough to understand them.

We are the least homophobic blog on Tumblr for us to receive sutch negative comments on our post and prive message from here to China is outragious. And all that just because we posted a straight headcannon. SHAME.

The true colors of the lgbt is not rainbow but doo doo brown. Because the lgbt is shit to us now.

An anti-transgender bill was just pre-filed in Washington state!

And Washington state residents can do something about that immediately

A harmful anti-transgender bill, HB1011, was just pre-filed in the Washington legislature for the 2017 session.

If passed HB1011 would write discrimination into state law by prohibiting transgender people from using the restroom consistent with who they are. This is exactly the kind of law that has put North Carolina in the (negative) national spotlight.

It’s clear anti-transgender forces are more determined than ever to overturn our state’s nondiscrimination protections in 2017, so we need to fight back.

If you live in Washington state, go to the following link and enter some info to find out who your legislators are, and send them an email (there is a form letter provided):  http://action.wawont.org/page/speakout/hb1011

I want every news org to put this fact front and center when writing about the shooting.
