Wow. I guess sometimes I don't pay as much attention to legal subtleties as I should. I didn't know the federal government could fire a person based on their sexual orientation: Gay News From 365Gay.com
I know about the military's don't ask, don't tell policy, but after reading all the 'equal opportunity employer' quotes in every ad for federal employment, I didn't realize that equal opportunity was only for heterosexuals.
I guess I'll wait to see how the courts deal with the first suit filed by someone fired based on their sexual orientation.
