I have a hard time believing that it's a true story. Feels more like someone's fantasy of how they wanted a situation to end up. My opinion of it is that it's utter tripe.

That channel is odd; seems very clickbaity under the guise of "telling people's stories".

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled today that an employer cannot fire an individual for merely being gay or transgender. :party: https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/1 ... 8_hfci.pdf

It was a 6-3 decision with Gorsuch and Roberts forming the majority with the four liberal justices.

I have to admit I was quite stunned, but then again know that one can't peg justices until they're on the court and issuing rulings. 6 to 3 was quite incredible and I'm certain people on the right are going to whine about court activism, but it really might be a cause for some hope.

Especially interesting though is how someone campaigned on being the candidate to 'protect' the LGB community (can't remember if there were any promises made for Trans - kind of doubt it) and yet this administration argued that employers should have the right to fire employees simply because they are LGB, not to mention hiding behind 'faith' as a means to legitimize discrimination. Yup, that's how you protect people in this America. (At least Bush was honest about being anti-LGBT, but the Great Liar never fails us, does he?)

Wonder if this means the court isn't going to look favorably on other attempts to erode LGBT protections and rights - especially curious how this will play out for other cases affecting the community.

Maybe there is hope for Roe v Wade too, but I'm not holding my breath. Still, about the best news I've seen in at least two weeks.
