Cindy Carter, the emergency room nurse from Cincinatti, Ohio who had a transphobic, homophobic meltdown on Facebook over tampons last week, is officially unemployed.
Carter took to Facebook last week to voice her outrage over Procter & Gamble removing the female “Venus” symbol from its packaging on its ‘Always’ menstrual products.
““F*ck ‘Always.’ This country has gone to complete sh*t,” Carter raged. “Women have periods, men don’t.”
“Why do certain applications ask for LEGAL SEX … you’re either male or female. There’s no f*cking in between. Jesus people – get your heads on straight. Grab a mirror – it’s easy. You either have a d*ck or you don’t.”
She continued, “I swear, these f*cking c*ck sucking homos think that they deserve everything. And the confused woman are just as bad. Men need to be men. Women need to be women. Stop the stupid ass ‘man buns’ and man you buns up to do some hard labor.”
After gay city councilman Chris Seelbach saw Carter’s rant, he took a screenshot of the tirade and posted it to social media.

When TriHealth, the hospital where Carter worked, got wind of the outburst, it quickly suspended her and opened an investigation into the matter. Now, the hospital says, she is no longer employed with them.
“As we move forward and all of us learn from this troubling event, we know we must remain grounded in and guided by the — Serving and Respecting All People, Valuing Differences and Respecting and Celebrating our Spiritual Heritage,” TriHealth CEO Mark Clement wrote in a news release.
“I remain hopeful that something good will come out of this very sad event as we recommit to coming together for the common good of those we serve, accepting and celebrating ALL our differences.”
Clement went on to say that the company, which employs roughly 11,500 individuals, does not “condone these derogatory comments made about LGBTQ community members.”
Carter has yet to issue any comment on the matter, but somehow we don’t think this is the last we’re going to be hearing about her.

For every Cindy Carter, there’s a Ben Davis that condones that behavior.
She needs a prostate check from Captain Hook.
I can’t imagine hating a group of people so much I’d be willing to lose my job over it. Conservative people are just crazy.
I’m sure a Catholic hospital will be happy to offer her a job.
Robco, please leave your anti-catholic ranting at the door. You’re no better than the nurse we’re talking about. You’re acusing all catholics of being homophobes. Your comment violates the Queerty comment policy which you should read. Please refrain from hate speech which targets *any* group, in this case catholics. Any questions?
Except multiple Catholic hospitals have stated they have discriminatory policies against LGBT people. Pointing out other’s bigotry is not a violation.
Now lets discuss your rabid defense of people who won’t hire LGBT people.
Queerty the correct spelling of the city this happened in is Cincinnati. You butchered it in a big way.
Butchered in a big way? Really? RME
She uses such harsh words against gay men but only says “confused women” I’m guessing in reference to lesbians. With many very specific references about what she feels men should do, I think she has had a few bad relationships. That’s no excuse but could be a contributing factor.
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
Nasty abhorrent crunt…..
She’s certainly entitled to her opinion. And, she expressed it on a personal account not a company account. I don’t think she should have been fired, and I’m sure she’ll find a lawyer who agrees.
sadly for her she is in a profession that does not tolerate any form of “free speech” that impinges upon the rights of people you care for. If your in the healthcare field, the rights of the patients supersedes yours.
I wrote this on the original article; I am sure that getting fired is just the beginning of her worries now.. now she will have to contend with being able to practice her profession once the college of nurses gets wind of this
from my previous post:
This isn’t going to end well for her unfortunately.. being a nurse, she is part of a self-regulating profession– once the regulatory body gets wind of this–it’s possible her license could be suspended (likely) or revoked (less likely);
she would definitely be paying an exorbitant amount of money to go for training sessions pertaining to ethics, professionalism, and cultural sensitivity training each probably costing $300-500; plus she’ll be paying for the investigation into her misconduct which quickly ramps up to thousands;
not to mention the 5-10 Journal essays she needs to write to reflect on what she did and why she was wrong; only then can her license possibly be reinstated
First off, she wasn’t fired. She resigned, although she also claims that her account was hacked into. See my post on this.
Second, most employers have a clausr where actions outside of work that affect a company’s reputation can be cause for termination. Being so vocally homophpbic can certainly affect the nurse-patient relationship, not to mention her interaction with coworkers. Furthermore, it probably violates the hospital’s policy of inclusion. Teachers and police officers are regularly disciplined for similar actions because they affect their ability to interact with the public. If a gay student is failed, for example, the parents can claim that homophobia was a factor. In this case, the hospital doesn’t need homo/transphobia to cloud any possible malpractice suit.
Its adorable when the defenders of anti-LGBT bigotry try to put up false arguments.
So let’s see, by your logic if a person stated in private Facebook post that they liked to beat children, that it would be wrong for the grammar school that employed them to fire them if it went public?
Where you state something is irrelevant, your employers can fire you for anything. That is what Republicans fought for. Congratulations. 🙂
I don’t normally think people should be fired because they’re annoyingly opinionated about certain subjects. This, however, is different. How can she be trusted to help any LGBT people – real or perceived – who might be under her care. That does matter. As a health professional we need to know that she is willing to do her job no matter who ends up under her care.
Is she really so obese that she needs a mirror to examine her pubes for sex education?
* “sex identification,” not “sex education.” Damn auto-correct!
This article is incomplete, if not misleading. It implies that she was fired when in fact, she resigned. Furthermore, she did make a comment, claiming that her account was hacked into. Her resignation means that the investigation ends, and we won’t know whether the posts are really hers — nor will we get to see other evidence of her [alleged] homo/transphobia. Here is an excerpt from the hospital’s statement:
“Earlier this week, I wrote to all TriHealth team members, physicians, and volunteers about a troubling social media post reportedly made by one of our team members. At the time, I promised that TriHealth would conduct a thorough investigation into the allegations. Unfortunately, we were unable to complete this investigation, because the individual involved in this matter voluntarily resigned her position from TriHealth…”
In other words, she did it, she wasn’t hacked, and she decided to resign before she was fired.
TriHealth appears to be a religious company, as evidenced by the CEO’s statement. In the above excerpt, he stated, “Serving and Respecting All People, Valuing Differences and Respecting and Celebrating our SPIRITUAL HERITAGE.” In the complete statement, he refers to the company as “values-based.”
I wonder if the company’s LGBT-inclusion policy is voluntary or required by law.
Freedom of Speech is not freedom from CONSEQUENCES……..
