Subject: So because it doesn't affect you personally it's OK? WTF, Matt?

It doesn't affect me in Illinois, either, but that doesn't mean I'm OK with it. Only 19 states and Washington, D.C., have passed laws preventing LGBT Americans from being discriminated against by employers. Three others protect employees on the basis of sexual orientation but not gender identity. That means 28 states allow firing someone for being Lesbian, Gag, or Bisexual and 31 states allow firing someone for being Transgender/Transsexual.

One thing that can be done is write to your Senators and Representative (especially if they are Republican) and ask them to sponsor or support a bill that will make it law that LGBT people cannot be fired just for being who they are.

And Matt, please don't tell me that it won't do any good before you TRY it. Don't be a naysayer.
