xoJane: Catholic School Teacher Fired for Being “Worse Than Gay”:

Gender is not a protected class across the US (sex is), and that’s why we desperately need the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) or something like it, because no transgender people should have to fear the economic consequences of coming out at work. Social issues aren’t going to magically go away with the passage of a law; workplaces that are welcoming and supportive now will continue to be so, while those that are not won’t suddenly decide that trans people are a-okay, but ENDA would be a very positive step in the right direction.
