The results of this YouGov poll are a head scratcher. The percentages who think an employer should be able to terminate an employee for being gay follow. “Not sure” responses, constituting 16% of the total, are excluded:
Differences by age cohort are the most flummoxing. Given both the significant shift in attitudes towards homosexuality that has occurred over the last generation and the increasing classroom emphasis on intersectionality, the relatively high support for potential firing among younger people is highly surprising.
At least libertarians should be encouraged. In another century, Shinra will be able to fire Mukki and his merry molesters without hesitation.
This is another instance of how woke whites are trying to pull the rest of a reluctant Democrat coalition along with them. We can deduce the percentage of white Democrats who favor an employer having the right to fire a gay employee to be in the low single digits.
I break ranks and stand with woke whites on this one. Additionally, we should have protections in place for a person’s political orientation. Political beliefs are significantly genetic in origin. It’s hardly any fairer to fire a person for being a conservative than it is to fire him for being black.
