Skip to comments.Companies get even 'gayer' as U.S. economy plummets
Posted on 10/29/2009 4:44:44 PM PDT by USALiberty
Despite an economy languishing in high unemployment and low consumer confidence, more American companies are jumping on the bandwagon to provide support for homosexual and transgender employees.
More than 300 firms have now received perfect 100 percent scores in this fall's Corporate Equality Index, produced annually by the Human Rights Campaign which ranks businesses on their "treatment" of employees who have chosen homosexual, lesbian, bisexual and transgender lifestyles.
The list, which saw a 20 percent increase this year in the number of perfect scores, includes newcomers such as theater giant AMC Entertainment, Costco, Delta Air Lines, Food Lion and General Mills.

Another list of companies I will avoid.
This is even more distasteful than ‘afirmative action’.
How could they get any more gay?
Just about every logo these days looks like it was designed by a fag, and most all commercials look like they were written and directed by ass pirates.
If a Martian landed here and turned on a TV, they would believe we were all metrosexuals.
How long till manliness is outlawed all together?
The company I work for (I will not name it, but it is a large insurance company) eagerly embraces this crap. Every month it has a salute to some politically correct special interest group, complete with displays, workshops, posters, all that kind of crap. Of course, not once has it had a month in honor of white, heterosexual, native-born Americans (unless they are women: Lots of stuff supporting women; but, then again, a majority of the insurance industry are women, so they kind of make sure they are prominently exhibited).
Makes sense...seeing how King Ray-Ray and his merry band of RATS are doing everything they can to GIVE IT to the economy in the rear.
thats great...we cant be straight and we cant be white
No one (other than Freeper types) seems to have made the connection between the financial cost of Political Correctness and America’s loss of jobs, the economic disaster, the rising costs of living and of doing business, producing products.
They are all impacted by the burden placed on business and individuals from all this namby-pamby, touchy-feely, affirmative action, politically corect insanity.
Government imposes political correctness and businesses accept it when they cave in to pressure from government and well organized special interest groups.
But what is the cost of having to hire or retain an employee based on the color of their skin, their sex or their perversion instead of employing the most qualified person?
What is the true cost of having to pay multi-million dollar legal settlements for people who file lawsuits based on frivolous or inflated claims of discrimination?
What is the cost of providing spousal benefits to the sexual partner of the moment when our competition does not?
Society cannot keep placing these kinds of costs on businesses, individuals and government services without reducing efficiency and raising costs.
The end result is that businesses leave the country, the government gets bigger, fatter and less efficient while individuals lose purchasing power and our freedom of choice is eroded even further.
There goes my Costco membership.
This is war.
No need to outlaw it... Any 'manliness' or masculinity in boys is being suppressed and discouraged at every turn during childhood. Our entire culture has become feminized, and there's no sign of it letting up. Look at what we just elected as president for God's sake.
What's going to totally undo us is in a generation or two there may not be enough MEN left in our society. Whether liberals would admit it or not, there are certain jobs and 'dirty' work... sometimes violent work, that must be done for a civilization to survive. Real 'MEN' do such things, and in their absence, we will be screwed.
I’m sure the mega ins co that bought my little company last year is on that list. I just finished “open enrollment” for 2010 benefits. I’ve never seen such a list of “dependents”: out of a list of about 12 ways a dependent can be “YOURS”, more than half had “same sex” something in the description. YCK!
Pray for our enemies. Especially the ones elected to lead this country. Who knows, if Obama came to know Christ, he could no longer be the non-leader he is.
Hey, this is our ONLY chance. The republic of our founding fathers is gone.
What about the employees who are married to their goats? Doesn’t anyone care about reaching out to them? How about necrophiliacs?
I'm OK with that since their medical costs will be nil, by definition...
... unless there is financial support for reconstructive surgery!
1) If they go along with all the PC crapola then they add a lot of unnecessary costs and inefficiencies.
2) If they don't, then they open themselves up to all sorts of litigation.
Imagine being the only company in an industry without a formal sexual harrassment program? There will be scumbags coming from miles around to try and get hired on just in order to generate a lawsuit.
It wouldn't surprise me if the so-called "Human Rights Campaign" has gotten such good support by sneaking degenerates into workplaces that aren't sufficiently gay-centric and threatening lawsuits until the rainbows start popping-up in all the break rooms.
So they move offshore or replace domestic production with imports from countries where businesses aren't hindered by intrusive governments and political corectness
Not much chance of that. Obama is undoubtedly a devout follower of Islam. I’m thinking he’s a Sunni, but who knows.
