You have the same protection as every American

Um, NO, they do not. That is what this is all about, or did you not bother to read the article? House republicans just voted to NOT give them the same protections as the rest of Americans.

Explain it to me why people protected in the same ways as other Americans (LGBT) need special laws based on their sex and gender.

Edit: Bueller? Hello? No logical answer because there is none? LMAO

Federal contracts already have a company sign the equal opportunity forms saying that they do not discriminate.

Honestly, I believe that the bill being passed was going to be a stepping stone for making it a requirement for Federal Contracts to have a certain percentage of workers or total contract value go to LGBT people or companies. There are already requirements for women, minorities, disabled, and veterans.

We should end all hiring requirements. Bring back collective bargaining on behalf of labor (of any color, sex, identity, whatever else the fuckers want to try to divide us with).
