I guess that I shouldn’t find it shocking anymore when I speak to people — many progressives, mind you — who have no idea that you can lose your job for being LGBT. As in, if your employer is a homophobe and decides they don’t want to have “that perversion” in their offices, they can call you into their office, or better yet, right into the middle of the office floor and fire you, stating your sexual orientation is the sole reason for showing you the door. Period.
