Donald Trump might sign an executive order permitting anti-queer discrimination this week, according to LGBTQ Nation:
Several sources spoke with LGBTQ Nation on the condition of anonymity who have told us that the order will allow for discrimination in a number of areas, including employment, social services, business, and adoption.
From what we’ve heard, the executive order could be far-reaching, and could include: making taxpayer funds available for discrimination against LGBTQ people in social services; allow federally funded adoption agencies to discriminate against LGBTQ parents; eliminate non-discrimination protections in order to make it possible to fire federal employers and contractors based on their sexual orientation or gender identity; and allow federal employees to refuse to serve people based on the belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman, and that gender is an immutable characteristic set at birth, which would impact a broad range of federal benefits.
At the moment, this prediction is based on unsubstantiated rumors, but considering Trump’s recent executive orders it’s definitely a realistic threat.
So good job, gay Trump supporters! The only thing that will make this bearable is the knowledge that you’ll suffer along with everybody else.
