Ep. 4: #TooManyHashtags


Supreme Court rules in favor Muslim woman over hijab
Back in 2008 a Muslim woman was not hired for a job at Abercrombie & Fitch because her need for her hijab violated company polices. The company argued that she didn’t let them know that it was for religious reasons. The Supreme Court didn’t buy it.
Woman gets fired because she gets pregnant
A court unsurprisingly ruled against the United Bible Fellowship after coming down with a very serious medical condition: pregnancy. That’s right! She lost her job because she was pregnant and the company has a very clear policy that they do not employ pregnant women despite that being a clear violation of the fucking Civil Rights Act!
School refuses to allow valedictorian to deliver speech due to sexual orientation
Evan Young has a 4.5 GPA and his high school will not let him give his valedictorian speech because he would have briefly mentioned that he was gay. Then they outed him to his father.
Police show up to handle a suicide threat. Then they kill him.
Justin way was a recovering alcoholic and recently lost his job. While drunk he made threats against himself. His girlfriend called a non-emergency number so that she could get help to take him to the hospital and she mentioned that she did not feel threatened. Police show up with assault rifles and minutes later Justin is dead.

 Denise Way,
Justin’s mom, said the detective relayed to her that “they told Justin to drop the knife and he didn’t—so they shot him because ‘That’s what we do.’”

 

Since she has emerged, Caitlyn Jenner is still being called “he”. There is now a Twitter bot that sends a tweet to anyone who misgenders her to remind them that it is she not he.

Some idiot was flying his drone around an airport. Nearly hits one and blinds several other with a green laser.
