At about 11:30 this morning the senior attorney called me into his office and fired me because I am transgendered.

Did he actually say that was the reason?

Now what?

Fucking hell. What can we (your friends) do? Letter writing? Protest? Notify the media? I'll do it.

Shit. That seems like a real dumb move on his part, unfortunately a dumb move on his part means a lot of hassle for you. Has there been a reaction from any coworkers?

Beth said she was sorry, [livejournal.com profile] eugie gave me a hug, and they plus [livejournal.com profile] elemess helped me pack my desk area and take it to the car. I didn't see anyone else on the way out. Vallerie was out today.

Wow. I am stunned. If you need me, let me know. Send me an email because my phone is god-knows-where.

I don't know why you'd be stunned. You knew this was likely.

I am floored. I really am.
I understand this type of ignorant behavior in small, middle of nowhere places - but not in Atlanta. I guess that just proves my bias as being ignorant as well.
I am so sorry. And pissed.

Half the legislators who come to the Capitol each year are from those small, middle of nowhere places, and they're the people he felt he had to placate, I guess.

Bummer! Sorry to hear that! Isn't it government? Aren't there legal things to protect you? Wel, I guess they'd know being attorneys and all..again..I hate to hear that!

FUCK

Well, I'd say pick up a lawyer and start the process.
More than likely they will settle vs. court and bad publicity.

It doesn't get your job back.
It does give you the opportunity to start a new job as who you are.

Holy shit - that sucks. I'm sorry you're going to have to deal with this and the resulting chaos. No one deserves to be treated like that, ever.

I hope you and your attorneys nail them to the wall.

Oh man, I am so so sorry! That is so amazingly small minded. I am glad you'll be able to start a new job without this particular bump in the road being a problem, but it shouldn't have happened this way.

Let me get my ducks in a row first. I don't want to generate any media heat until after my sister's wedding.

I was also holding out hope it wouldn't come to this. I know you will be able to handle whatever comes next with grace and aplomb :)

Since they make the laws in Georgia, I would think they know what they can and can't get away with. Maybe they can legally discriminate against transgendered persons?

Did you get severance?

Of course they can! That's what ENDA is all about!

Someone I work with wanted me to pass along that he is very connected to an important PR person in the GBLT community who would be very interested in this and could quite possibly expidite any media attention you might wish to garner. If you are interested email me and I can get you in touch.

On behalf of the human race, I'm completely ashamed. If you need someone to march on the capitol building, you've got a volunteer right here.
