Fairness and equality, why not have that on a application, no gender, no race, soon they will ask if you are gay or not because businesses will have hire to hire 2% or 10% so to avoid law suits.
What are you worried about, grampy? I'm sure you are long past work age, if not, you think like you are from the 1940's, it seems.

tell ya what, next time you fill out an application, refuse to answer those questions, just out of principle.

good luck.

none of us that work for an employer have any control over what they ask - but we do control our responses.

or are you just ticked because they can't tell if you're a woman or a man?

You just proved my point, most homosexuals have no tolerance for anyone else's opinion, You accuse me of being prejudiced but you have no proof of that, you just assume that. I knew it would come out sooner or later.

Im retired now so I won't be filling out any apps anytime soon. By the way last time I filled out one, those questions weren't on it as far as my Recollection. I think the most qualified should get the job, instead of names, give the Applicant a number so the employer will not know their race or gender. Very simple.

What makes you think Im a Christian, thats another flaw that I see, Stereotyping people that are not like you.I'm just trying to figure out why gays have so much hate in their hearts maybe its just the ones on topix, who knows. Why would you hate anyone, Im afraid you are looking for someone to disapprove of your lifestyle,NO tolerance!

I don't think that most gays have hate in their hearts; what you're seeing on here is a response to some of the hateful comments directed at gays.

"you get what you give"

or, as i tell my kids "i don't care who messed it up, clean it up now!" shouldn't be reduced to "he started it!" which comes across as "na na na blah blah blah". or, s i tell the guys reporting to me "it doesn't matter who made the mistake, just fix it now!"

Here let me repost my exact post
"Your right people do demand equallity cletus... I hate chriSTAINS and i'm not allow to say mean sh!t to them at work... see it works both ways"
Please show us where I said you were a christain!!
No I was responding to the fact that you think its only you who have to walk the PC tightrope... I clearly said I hate Christains but given they have SPECIAL RIGHTS given to them for a non GENE related BEHAVIOR and CHOICE nunder every anti discrimination clause in the US I can't speak my mind regarding there fifth at work or in public accomidations... See how this works
"I hate chriSTAINS" you were insinuating I was one, since you Intentionally misspelled the word and I would assume anyone with a level head would think the same, stop hating, it will make you ill.

Try to have an open mind about this, I've said before, straight people are wired differently then you just like you are wired differently.

I do have an open mind. I'm wired the same as you; I'm a heterosexual -- attracted to the opposite sex. I support the rights of those who are wired differently than I am.

No, YOU are upset that you cannot shout out hateful remarks about folks anymore. That's what's upsetting you.

YOU were the one boo hooing that your 1st amendment rights were being tampered with and you could not use hate speech anymore, not me.

See that's what I mean, Im not upset, Im not shouting, I think really you are, you sound intolerable to anyone else, why would you think I was? I am very happy, I'm just trying to understand what makes you tick, I'm not tying to piss you off, but you are really showing your flaws and what your agenda is really about.

All right, all right, calm down over there. You aren't as annoying as I thought and I did over react, a BIT. I SORT of apologize. That's just about the best you are going to get.

I'm big enough to try to get along when someone is polite, which I think you are.

YOU think your being put upon because LGBT people have a right to not be abused by you in public or work yet you over look the fact that the people I hate ChriSTAINS have the same protections legally from me I know this is hard but try to keep up
You seem like a very angry young lady, loosen up a bit and you will have a happy life, stop looking for something to bitch about, if you don't you'll grow old fast.
