    Kansas governor rescinds LGBT protections for state employees

    Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R) on Tuesday rescinded an executive order that extended anti-discrimination protections to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered state employees, outraging equal rights advocates who condemned the move.

    In its place, Brownback issued an order that his office said committed the state to employment practices that do not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion, national origin, ancestry or age. Sexual orientation and identity were unmentioned in the new order.

    Ps,
    Moments later a bill was introduced then dismissed

    Re: Kansas governor rescinds LGBT protections for state employees

    I can understand wanting it done through the legislature. But why doesn't he leave the executive order in place until he introduces a bill and gets it passed?

    oh. Because he's Brownback.

    Think it's just "bread and circuses"? Distract Kansans from the mess he's created?

    Remarkable that people who claim to be "equal Rights advocates" clamor for special measures designed for certain groups.

    You know, the protections protect everyone. Not discriminating based on sexual orientation protects straights as well LGBTs.

    Here's the list from the article of what Kansas protects:
    Brownback issued an order that his office said committed the state to employment practices that do not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, religion, national origin, ancestry or age. Sexual orientation and identity were unmentioned in the new order.
    That list protects YOU, regardless of your race, your gender, your religion, your origin, your ancestry, your age.

    Sadly people do also discriminate on sexual orientation; that should be part of the list as well.

    Since when is "equal treatment" defined as "special"?

    Sam Brownback is one of the people who would like to get the U.S. government off of Wall Streets back and into every American bedroom.

    People treat people differently on the basis of body odor too. Should that be added to the list too?
