This morning, the Supreme Court issued a landmark ruling that declares “An employer who fires an individual merely for being gay or transgender violates Title VII.”
To the surprise of almost, well, everyone, the 6-3 opinion was penned by Neil Gorsuch, the conservative justice appointed by Donald Trump. Gorsuch was joined by Justices Kagan, Sotomayor, Ginsburg, and Roberts.
Justices Thomas, Alito, and Kavanaugh, who likes beer, dissented.
Twitter has had a lot to say about the toxic trio, but people have been coming especially hard for Kavanaugh, who famously refused to say whether he supported same-sex marriage during his confirmation hearing in 2018.
Check out what they’re saying…

Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito hate gay people so much they think it’s okay for them to be fired and forced to go hungry and live homeless on the streets simply for being gay. How scary it is that such bigots sit on the Supreme Court.
Please vote in November.

(As long as I live, I will NEVER forgive America for allowing Brett Kavanaugh to become a Supreme Court Justice.)

In light of today’s historic LGBTQ+ ruling I would like to remind everyone that Kavanaugh shouldn’t be there.

I bet Brett Kavanaugh is on the phone venting with Tobin and Squee right now: “God, that Gorsuch is such a TOOL! He doesn’t even like beer. I LOVE BEER!!!” #SCOTUS🏳️🌈

“This is BOOLSHIT” -Brett Kavanaugh storming out of the Supreme Court and heading to the skate park
— Louis Virtel (@louisvirtel) June 15, 2020
When Brett Kavanaugh threw a fit in defense of his teenage beer-soaked assault, he literally announced that if he got on the Court he would spend the rest of his life taking his revenge. The right side won today, but just want to remind everyone that elections have consequences.

It is very thoughtful of Brett Kavanaugh to periodically remind us what a little bitch he is. #SCOTUS

All those debts he had mysteriously vanished. We all knew him being there was bought and paid for.
I have been working from home for 4 years now and I love it. I don’t have a boss standing over my shoulder and I make my own hours. The tips below are very informative and anyone currently working from home or planning to in the future could use this website….? 6.gp/a756o
I thought they should have bribed him with a beer and it would have been 7-2

Let’s see here, the Supreme Court passed this 6-3. Many of you spend your entire waking moments bashing Trump and anything you can even remotely associate with Trump, and I’m guessing this will be no different. But can’t you just for once in your lives acknowledge the fact that this Supreme Court decision today, favored us? It’s something that many have fought for, for many many years, and all you can do is bit*c*h. Were you equally upset when the Supreme Court upheld equal marriage in 2015???? Oh wait, of course you weren’t, because Obama was president. But if they hadn’t settled that equal marriage case until 2017, you’d all bit*c*h and complain, just because Trump was President at the time.
Hey joker! Maybe cause the Trump administration opposes this ruling. Are you high?

Are you being serious or is your head really that far up your ass?
He just recently proposed a change to remove protections for LGBTQ people in healthcare, he supports work place discrimination, he opposes the Equality Act, he hires the most visious anti gay judges we’ve ever seen, etc, etc.
This decision was in spite of him.
Hun we had Roberts, Gorsuch came along to write a decision full of potential problems.
Any way Gorsuch might of been Don’z nomination but he was picked by Moscow Mitch et.al.
The Trump administration was arguing that it should be thrown out. During the gay marriage case, the Obama admin didn’t. That’s the difference.
Trump is probably going to tweet how he wishes he could FIRE a DISLOYAL Supreme Court justice he appointed who disobeyed his instructions!!!
The right wing troll account that continually defends anti- LGBT Republicans doesn’t think we should be talking about the fact that Kavanaugh, a Trump appointee used BS. logic to try to say that LGBT people can be fired simply for existing.
Also with the majority opinion was Breyer.
@NateOcean, Breyer, Ginsburg, Kagan, and Sotomayor were going to vote to protect LGBTQIA people no matter what, so Breyer’s vote was hardly unexpected. It is the two conservative judges, Chief Justice Roberts and Don the Con’s appointee, the very conservative, devoutly Catholic Neil Gorsuch, who also voted with the more liberal justices, that is a surprise. And even more, that Gorsuch wrote the opinion, as opposed to Breyer, Ginsburg, Kagan, or Sotomayor. I think it probably would have passed 5-4, with Roberts voting with the liberal justices, but Gorsuch took a conservative legal approach to make the case, yet the opinion is anything but narrow as a result.
Queerty runs a lot of articles (mostly by GG) about how straight guys magically turn gay after drinking enough alcohol.
Did anyone think of doing that with Kavanaugh?
He said his life was going to be ruined if he didn’t get confirmed by the Senate to the Supreme Court.
He has no problem with the lives of others being ruined if they can’t get a job because of their sexuality or identity.
That is the essence of being a Republican. When it comes to selfish assholes he’s right up there with the best of them.
The logic Kavanaugh and Alito used in the dissent was that LGBTQ people shouldn’t be protected by the Civil Rights Acts because the people at the time didn’t consider those rights.
By THAT logic, then AR15s and handguns also aren’t protected by the 2nd Amendment because the founders at that time didn’t know about such sophisticated guns, and they talked about them being used in a regulated militia.
Of COURSE the right wingers on the court won’t agree with that. They will use ANY argument they can to defend hate and bigotry and then have no problem being hypocrites to allow whatever they want to allow.
