US EPA: It Gets Better

Posted by admin on January 31, 2013 in Environment Protection with 9 Comments

Administrator Lisa P. Jackson introduces staff members who share their coming out stories as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. Each story is not the same, but what each story tells us is how important it is to find a supportive environment, so that each person may find the strength to be open about who they are.

    Way to Go EPA!!!! All of our employees should feel welcomed in the workplace regardless of their race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation. This is a good start in the right direction. We don’t have to agree but respect is key.

    I’m sorry, but why is the EPA–the Environmental Protection Agency–using my tax dollars for this? Doesn’t seem like LGBT issues are related to the environment, unless they’re more (or less) likely to be polluters, or some such. Haven’t seen any studies suggesting that.

    How about focusing your efforts, and the gross expenditure of our tax dollars, on protecting human health and the environment? Personal matters like the ones you are venturing into are way outside the mandate Congress gave you. Maybe you should spend more time following the law, Richard Windsor, and less time cavorting with the likes of intolerance icons like Dan Savage.
