Obama Admin. Announces Historic LGBT Workplace Protection

Bringing us one step closer to the apocalypse, the Obama administration announced today that President Obama will sign an executive order that will protect LGBT employees of federal contractors.

via ThinkProgress

The White House announced Monday that President Obama will issue an executive order requiring that all companies who contract with the federal government must not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. [...]

The protections will reach over one million LGBT workers across the country, making it the single largest expansion of LGBT workplace protections in our country’s history.

The text of the executive order has not been posted at the official White House website yet, but when it is you’ll be able to read it here.

Keep your eyes peeled at Right Wing Watch for reactionary hilarity. The End Times are surely upon us. The reeducation camps and boxcars are coming.

    The Right will respond with its usual torrent of overwrought blather about tyranny and jackboots and won’t somebody think of the children! and things being rammed down throats. Accompanied, of course, by the soft plop of Righty heads exploding.

    I think I know what Roy Edroso will be writing about all week.

    Seriously, though, this is good news. So much so that Congressional Rs will move to block the administration’s efforts within 24 hours of the executive order being signed (can’t have that variety of those people thinking they’re actual people, don’t you know).

    As well as the purity left who still won’t give Obama any credit. After all, he’s just like Bush.

    The majority of Americans currently favor marriage equality. An even greater majority favor non discrimination against LBGT in the workplace. So, where’s the tyranny, exactly?
