Library of Congress rescinds job offer to transgendered Army veteran

The ACLU has filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Library of Congress on behalf of Diane Schroer, a 25-year Army veteran. Schroer claims that she was offered the position of senior terrorism research analyst just as she was making the transition from male to female. She informed the Library of Congress about her gender change, and the job offer was rescinded. Schroer was told she was not "a good fit" for her new employer.


Well, we can't have us one of those damn queer he-shes runnin' around in the halls of the Libary of Congress now, can we, takin' up a job that a good, God-fearin' family man could fill? Next thing you know, they'll be interviewin' a Goddamn Cathlick! The world has done gone to Hell...

Oh come on! Anyone who has been around one knows that a transgendered person is not gay. These people are often quite intelligent too. Often if no one says anything one will never know. Not a reason for job discrimination.
