Meanwhile the government are not protecting the LGBT community because it’s considered “wrong” this causes violence towards homosexual. For example, the cons about Gay Rights is that “Married LGBT couples can access the same assistance as heterosexual couples and are afforded the same amount of protection under the law”(Duigon 4). The government does not show equalness towards the LGBT community as they do to the “straight” people. It’s disappointing that protection is reduced because he or she is attracted to their same gender or more, but how government ignores that fact that they are struggling as well at the other and yet nothing has changed for them.

It is remarkably easy for people to boil down America’s current situation to that of a second Civil War in-the-making. All you witness in the media today is the polarity and out-right divisiveness of the country. While there is no doubt that political tolerance and political efficacy is at the lowest it has been, simply reducing the circumstances surrounding our current administration and our fellow citizens to that of a country tearing itself apart is not a fair assessment. When you look back at our country’s history, our situation is nothing new. We are living in a time of change and I am confident that once again, our country and its citizens will come out stronger than ever before.

Introduction Employment discrimination has become one of the most prominent areas of modern litigation. Businesses are sued more often by their employees than by any other category of litigant -- more than by competitors, customers or regulators.

The threat of employment discrimination lawsuits has changed the nature of the employment relationship and caused employers to implement safeguards, procedures and technicalities they would have never considered fifty years ago.

Three others protect employees on the basis of sexual orientation but not gender identity" (Bellis).
