Discriminatory. Tell the straights to stop being such wimps. Gay domestic partners? How is that proven. Why isn’t it possible they are just roommates? Get old Steve and Bill on camera being REAL teabaggers for proof. This crap drives me crazy. Discrimination is discrimination. Sometimes it seems we’d rather cry about it than take action.
Well, not quite sure what you’d have me do that I haven’t done. I contacted the corporate legal office shortly after joining the company; had this very discussion with them. It was an interesting discussion; the guy was cool, etc., and very polite. He heard me out, then said “So....your previous employer allowed you to put your significant other on your health insurance? Really??” I said “Yep...sure did; yet you guys won’t....unless, of course, my significant other was a man.” He acknowledged my point readily and summed it up by saying “You know, you’ve given me...us...a lot to think about here. Thank you. We really need to delve more into this.”
I think he meant it. We’ll see.
