    Why would that even be a topic of interest on a job application or in an interview?

    Hey Nick! Get relevant!

    Same old liberal ranting. You should be hired on sexual orientation, skin color, or being a female. Not on who is most qualified. Come to the job with qualifications for the job, not why you should be hired because of some “minority” status.

    Nick must have not looked at the news this morning. Houston re-elected Mayor Parker. LESBIAN. But she ran on what she did for the city, not her orientation.

    There are people who look at the gay community as sinners and perverts who are a threat to society. They also do not want to provide employer benefits to gay couples as if they were hetero couples.
    This is a generational attitude and with like that prejudiced generation, is slowly dying off. It is a shame that people can’t be judged by their talents instead of who they love.
    Respectfully,

    In the old days, homosexuality would have excluded you from getting a security clearance. If admittedly gay, you would not get the job.
    Hopefully things are better now.

    That’s dumb. There are no jobs.

    He mentioned his sexuality so he can sue for discrimination even if he’s not qualified for the job.

    .
    Especially in this day and age. Seems antiquated.

    Because at reactionary businesses like Cracker Barrel or Chick Fil-A people can be fired for being gay, or even if the employer thinks you MIGHT be gay, and that’s legal in 29 states. And John Boehner has ruled out voting on ENDA in the house because he knows full well it would pass.

    “Why would that even be a topic of interest on a job application or in an interview?”

    I assume for the same reason employers used to take a prurient interest in the social and reproductive lives of women.

    Emplacing regulations forbidding these questions didn’t remove them from the minds of employers, of course, but women have been relieved of those questions.

    The bias remains.

    “You should be hired on sexual orientation, skin color, or being a female. "

    Wow! Do you have Xray vision or something? I have been wholly unable to find any comment which so much as implies something like this on this board. Are you on the right board?

    That’s what it’s about: merit hiring. The whole concept is totally flakey in this culture anyway, because far too much of it runs on paper qualifications, not abilities. That aside, why should someone who is qualified for a position be denied it for their colour, race, religion, or a perceived sexual orientation which might not even be accurate?

    Your interpretation of the issue is perverse.

    Maybe he should lie and drop comments that start with “My wife and I….” To guarantee they won’t discriminate.

    Larry, the old days are still here in many places. How about the teacher that was recently fired after 2 decades of impeccable service because she married her partner? (Yes, both women.). How is that right?
