Wal-Mart is to America What Leprosy is to the Human Body

As if one needed any more examples of why this is an unchallengeable fact, here is one from Gawker:

“They got on my ass later for being a Transsexual. To the point of nearly firing me for being ‘too womanly’. (Which drove me to tears) I looked into it and sadly there was nothing I could do about it. This was before the GBLT crowd was a protected status in the state of Oregon. I couldn’t up and leave, because well, the job market was shite. And the supervisors and the store manager always highlighted it as a major problem despite my excellent work ethic. I also nearly got sent home for editing my name tag to suit my feminine appearance and mannerisms. For a place that has a long ass mission statement about diversity, they sure do hate the gays and trannys with a passion.”

    The “nearly got sent home for editing my name tag” says there’s more to this story than the intended hankie-daubing response merits. I’m guessing there’s a bigger issue with insubordination here. Victim/persecution complex, anyone?
