Exxon Mobil is believed to be the largest Fortune 500 company to discriminate against LGBT employees. To see if this holds true in the hiring process, the LGBT group Freedom to Work created fake resumes for two candidates applying for an open position.

Tumblr, we need you! A rogue Arizona State representative, John Kavanagh, wants to pass a bill that would thow trans people in jail for using public restrooms. Anyone could be asked for I.D. to “prove” their gender, and if there’s a discrepancy they could face a fine or jailtime.
When asked why the bill targeted trans people, Kavanagh explained that it’s because he thinks “they’re weird.” Outrageous.
We can stop this bill by taking action at www.allout.org/arizona and spreading the word far and wide. Will you help?

You should help and spread the word too

- Dickhead asshole Islamophobe takes out (Constitutionally-protected! We guess) anti-Muslim ads, which call Muslims “savages,” on San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s vehicles;
- San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency puts up its own ads, with arrows pointing to dickhead asshole Islamophobe’s ads and reading “SFMTA policy prohibits discrimination based on national origin, religion and other characteristics, and condemns statements that describe any group as ‘savages.’”
- Bravo, SFMTA, and Pamela Geller can fuck right off.
