Friend Of Gays Donald Trump Just Gutted Obama Order Protecting LGBT Federal Employees

Donald Trump signed an executive order yesterday allowing federal contractors to discriminate against LGBT employees.

Trump’s order revokes three previous orders signed by Barack Obama, including Executive Order 13673, the “Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Order”.

Signed in 2014, the order required companies receiving sizeable federal contracts to demonstrate that they have acted in compliance for at least three years with federal laws prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender stereotyping.

“This administration has made it extremely difficult to enforce these federal laws as applied to federal contractors,” Camilla Taylor, Lambda Legal attorney, told Keen News Service. “It’s sending a message to these companies that the federal government simply doesn’t care whether or not they violate the law.”

Federal contractors will also no longer have to prove compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act, which prohibit discrimination based on HIV status and other disabilities.

Just because the homophobia isn't "in your face" doesn't mean it isn't there; it is.

7. Yup!

It's like all those assholes who are "concerned about women and children" when it comes to transgender women using the bathroom, but any other time (health care, choice, adoption), their attitude is "fuck them!".

9. First they came

"First they came ..." is a poem written by German Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984). It is about the cowardice of German intellectuals following the Nazis' rise to power and subsequent purging of their chosen targets, group after group. Many variations and adaptations in the spirit of the original have been published in the English language. It deals with themes of persecution, guilt and responsibility.

Now they are coming for us all...

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
