Breaking!: EEOC Rules That Discrimination Based On Sexual Orientation Already Illegal!



FABULOUS!! The EEOC has realized that announcing your gay marriage and then getting fired for being gay is kinda stupid. Let's see what the haters have to say.

Via BuzzFeed:

The independent commission addressed the question of whether the ban on sex discrimination in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 bars anti-LGB discrimination in a complaint brought by a Florida-based air traffic control specialist against Transportation Sec. Anthony Foxx.
The ruling — issued without objection from any members of the five-person commission — applies to federal employees’ claims directly, but it also applies to the entire EEOC, which includes its offices across the nation that take and investigate claims of discrimination in private employment. And, while only the Supreme Court could issue a definitive ruling on the interpretation, EEOC decisions are given significant deference by federal courts.
