So where and how many times have gays actually been discriminated against in the workplace?

I don't have the statistics on that one, but I personally know several, including myself. So white people are upset over Chinese hiring Chinese, and Latinos hiring Latinos, but they raise no fuss when whites hire whites. Isn't that interesting. If you are white, watch your step. By mid-century you are going to be THE minority. Good luck with that. I'll be dead by then, so I don't have to worry about it.

ME! I was forced out of the best job I ever had because I was perceived as Gay, I'm not Gay, I'm Transexual, but the person who caused it neither knew or cared about the difference.

If any white person on a regular basis hired people just because of color the libtards would be in an uproar. Yet all across the country we have Chinese businesses with strictly Chinese employess, same as Latino or Japanease and so forth. It is as though a white conservative thinker could never be allowed to do such a thing.
The party of hypocricy, subversion, decadence, perversions, abortions, drugs, failure, irresponsibility, you name it. Socially destructive with the expectations of expecting others to pay.

More likely you were fired because you were always complaining and not doing your job. Or maybe the women got tired of seeing your junk hanging out of your panties in the ladies room.

No, it was probably because he had a bigoted moron like you for a boss, that he had to train all the time and then threw him under the bus because they couldn't comprehend anything.

Ordinarily I don't bother to answer these kinds posts, but since the writer may be stupid enough to think he's won some sort of victory, I'll straighten him out about what happened now.
First of all, at the time I was in almost total denial of my Transexuality. I had a family to feed and in no way was I doing anything to make a spectacle of myself. I wore suits and ties every day. I was not fighting the fight as a gender warrior. I still have the letters of commendation I received. As I said, I had mouths the feed, so I did nothing to upset the job or my life. The boss, at first, seemed to like me but he was always making little cracks about gays in general. Gradually, they became more specific until they were all directed at me. How do you fight that?" Gosh boss, you've got me all wrong, I'm not gay, I'm Transexual! Riiight! That would have gone over real well!
So despite trying to hide it, My Transexual nature "Outed" me. That was one of the factors in my starting to transition. There was no issues about the ladies room or anything else. It was just being perceived as gay and not being able (at the time)to be able to do anything about it.
