Just so you know…

I don’t have a full post planned for today but I’m using all of my tentacles in the internet to remind people that SCOTUS is hearing arguments on some important LGBTQ+ issues today. If you don’t have any paid news accounts anywhere, here is a great write-up that’s not behind a paywall.

At the most fundamental level, Altitude Express Inc. v. Zarda, Bostock v. Clayton County, and R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes v. EEOC are cases about whether the existing federal ban on sex discrimination forbids employment discrimination against LGBTQ workers.

The Supreme Court showdown over LGBTQ discrimination, explained

These are the kind of cases I would have worried about under Obama too but I would not have been as hopeless with the balance on that court. But this court’s balance is much more Conservative and while I’ll worry more about cases around reproductive rights, I am still terribly worried about this one.
