Queerty is better as a member
Fired for being gay or fired for not being a good employee? And whatever the case is, the boss should be disciplined – if not fired – for being homophobic, point blank period.
Whether is story holds up or not remains to be seen. However, I have ridden the MTA during Pride…and yes many of the workers practically sneer in disgust at the revelry.
If they offered him a promotion (as a sort of hush bribe), it contradicts any claims of him being a lousy worker who deserved to be fired. But he needs to prove he visited a hospital if he wants to be credible.
funny how people want gay people to ‘lighten up’ when there are death threats being made against them; it’s like, really?! Some people just have no idea how bad hostility towards gay people is- and for no good reason. Not to sound like a pity party, but gay people definitely are the most blatantly discriminated against and disrespected of any group of people. it’s just sad. I don’t know what my rant really has to do with this kid being fired, but if he’s telling the truth, I hope karma bites ( & for all the people who shout batty boys and kill them faggots dead’- they’ll get what’s coming to them- hopefully an eternity in hell) Happy Easter Queerty! :)
Another queen wanting to get rich because of pretend homophobia. He even pretended to be sick to get out of work.
If he was offered a promotion, how can they claim he wasn’t a very good worker? They’re kind of shooting themselves in the foot with that one.
The story isn’t clear, so I can’t tell why he was fired, but 1.5m does seem like a little too much.
Many people fail to stand up for their rights at the time an incident of workplace bullying occurs, because of intimidation or a lack of support around them. I have been in this situation before:
@Anthony: We don’t know that he was offered a promotion. All we have is his word. In most organizations a probational employee isn’t considered eligible for promotion or transfer, so his word is suspect.
In the article it says he had a couple of options offered to him while they investigated the homophobia. I’m interested in knowing the outcome of the investigation.
If his allegations are true, I hope he wins big just like the lesbian chef did recently. These a-holes need to be put in their place.
Cupcakes are IN by the way!!
