    God, I am so grateful I live in a progressive town. Can't imagine something like that happening where I live. If someone tried to pull that shit here, they would string the asshole up by his balls.

    As a threshold matter, that has to be the WORST write-up of a discrimination story I've ever read. I'm relatively intelligent, well-read, and a civil rights attorney, but I could barely keep up with the narrative.

    At any rate, it looks to be a dual matter here. Retaliation for his advocating for a disabled colleague, and then discrimination because of his homosexuality. The claims are interrelated, but the legal dynamic is different for each.

    I do wonder what a "hefty" settlement is. 40K pounds? 100K pounds?

    I love that they order Domino's pizza in the UK.

    And it says he's a lawyer in training. Please God tell me he isn't representing himself in the tribunals.

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    I've visited NOLA a bit, it's a very accepting town from my experiences. My worst criticism, which isn't related to 'acceptance', is that the taxi cab situation is HIT OR MISS.

    NOLA is on par with NYC, and feels more accepting than South Beach. NOLA is way more accepting than Philly or DC. Anything goes in NOLA as long as you're peaceful and nice. Legit city.

    UPDATE: More relevant than my warm fuzzies, NOLA passed a non-discrimination ordinance for the city back in 1999, very early, and it prevents discrimination against LGBTs (among other groups) in housing, employment and public accommodations. That's huge.

    Progressive town? Fucker, you live in new Orleans. icon_lol.gif the fuck are you talking about?


    Try doing what I did in any other town in the U.S. (in a non-gay area) and see how long you last......http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/4006987 I have always suspected New Orleans was the most accepting city in America but after this I am absolutely convinced of it.

    Please pay no mind to the Paz monster. He lives in a little, non descript suburban town of Maplewood which is a suburb of that 24 square mile urban insane asylum known as Newark.icon_razz.gif
