ExxonMobil’s Stockholder Support of Gay Protections Is Decreasing

ExxonMobil is the insanely profitable oil giant that spilled its oil in Alaska, not the Gulf of Mexico, in case you’re confused. It’s also the company that, when Exxon and Mobil merged, removed LGBT protections, which had GetEQUAL all upset recently. Well keep those frowns turned upside down: During a shareholder vote yesterday in Dallas, only 22 percent voted in favor of adding anti-discrimination policies that cover sexual orientation. That’s down from last year’s 40 percent.
