We had our first practice last night and two women came with a little girl. I introduced myself and said hi and they immediately went on a little speech about how they are together, they are lesbians, they are raising this girl together, nothing wrong with that. Then go into whats going to happen if I discriminate against their daughter because of their sexuality, threatening lawsuits and explaining that there are laws ect. I told them I was there to teach their daughter softball, and their sexual orientation was not a factor at all and moved along. As I am meeting other parents a few of them commented that this lady had approached them and gave them a similar speech out of nowhere. After all the kids were there I gathered the kids together and started off having the kids introduce themselves to their teammates. No additional information really, just kid would say my name is Earl. And everyone would say Hi Earl to start to learn teammates names. When the little girl told everyone her name, again the lady popped into action giving her speech to everyone out there. I stopped her after about a minute and spoke to her privately, or as privately as I could on a baseball field, and let her know that it is not appropriate to interrupt a team activity like that, and again told her noone is going to be discriminating against her daughter. So today I get a call from the city letting me know she filed a complaint and is taking her child off of my team because I told her she had to hide her sexuality at our practices so it wouldn't bother other parents. I dont recall my exact wording but it was not mean, the word hiding or even sexuality didnt come out of my mouth. I only asked her not to interrupt our practices and tried to assure he that I don't care what her sexual preference is, I am there to teach baseball and the other parents are only there to watch.

    Was I wrong to ask her to stop what she was doing?
    She's a little spoiled brat. Good she's gone.

    You totally discriminated. Under the newer definitions of bias and discrimination, it matters not what you actually intended, you're guilty just because of who you are. This could be just like that Ferguson shooting. It won't matter if you're justified. If it could be true, then it's as good as true.

    Now wait for the lawsuit.
    But first, people will tell you there are no militant gays or gay agenda.
    Too bad for that child.

    This is a PC issue so there is no "right" way to handle it. Basically, the only course of action that might prevent you from getting fired and probably thrown in jail is to extoll the virtues of homosexuality in a 3000 word essay in the local paper and propose erecting a monument to lesbians in center field.

    I voted "yes" you were wrong.

    I assume the question was in regard to inserting paragraph breaks in your post.

    Face it, you're screwed. What you did is on a par with refusing to bake her a cake. If she was offended it IS your fault and you WILL pay the price. The good news is that after you're fired you'll have lots of free time to attend sensitivity training.

    If it happenned just as you described I don't think any rational person could possibly say you were in the wrong. Which makes me wonder why you have to ask...
    Maybe because he's not dealing with rational people. The gay mafia is very, very real and they WILL crush you just because they feel like it.

    Nah, a monument is too phallic, best to just dig a memorial hole.

    At the end of the day, she was obnoxious and other parents seem like they would back you up on that. I'm don't think there's any legal right to barrage everyone as soon as you meet them like you're reading them their Miranda rights.
    Who says it has to be proved? This kind of crap takes it's toll based on mere accusations. If the city thinks they may have a nickel to lose on this he screwed. They all know damned well that the feminazi will be in the papers with the story, there will be a public demand for an investigation and consequences. The only way the city can nip all that in the bud is to can him immediately and ban him from any city activities involving children.

    Exactly. He's being led by the nose like a lamb to slaughter with all this, "you got nothing to worry about" stuff.
