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.

The Dutch are writing LGBTQ rights into their constitution

still needs to be approved by the upper house AND then go through both houses during the next parliament - still interesting

also appears homosexuality is on the verge of decriminalization in Gabon

Meanwhile Andrzej Duda got re-elected as Polish President on an agenda of anti-LGBT rhetoric. :angry:

yeah, 😭 I was hoping they wouldn't go down that road and wonder if maybe the small margin might make it a bit harder to claim a mandate, but I don't know enough about Polish politics. Still, sad and I know this will be another thorn in the EU.

Maybe the old Warsaw Pact states will come around in another 20 or 50 years, but most all pretty depressing when it comes to LGBTQ rights.

I'm glad I neither want nor need to travel to such places and just hope they don't resort to anti-queer pogroms.
