gay policy

Filed under: Uncategorized — Clattery MacHinery @ 12:32 am

sexual harassment&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp will not be tolerated
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp in the american workplace

this policy includes&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp unwanted advances of
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp a homosexual nature

since 1964&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp discrimination based on
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp race, religion, gender, or age

has been deemed illegal&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp and such harassment creates
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp a hostile work environment

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp a response on gay relations
by the grand ayatollah&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp ali al-sistani

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp confirmed that homosexuals
should be killed in “the worst most&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp severe way of killing”

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp sexually purifying
iraq of gays is a goal&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp of some badr corps cells

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp who also kill unveiled women,
people who wear western clothes&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp and alcohol sellers

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .

it is not illegal&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp in america for you
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp to ask a same-sex co-worker

for a date while at work&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp if the response is a firm
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp refusal, you may not tell him

or her that his or her&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp tushy is going to waste
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp nor may you call him or her ‘bitch’

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp a badr death squad officer,
pretending to be gay, joined&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp an internet chat room

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp and lured 27-year-old
ammar of baghdad into&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp a rendezvous this past

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp january–within the hour,
bound, blindfolded, he was shot&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp in the back of his head

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .

at work, if you witness&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp gay bashing of any kind
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp your responsibility is

to tell a manager&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp it is both illegal and
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp against company policy

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp gay iraqi activists plead
with americans in the&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp green zone, but are laughed at

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp current policy being to
not interfere while iraq&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp nears mandating gay deaths

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp .

americans must meet&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp in conference rooms to watch
&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp sexual harassment programs

&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp &nbsp iraqi homosexuals
must meet in dimly lit rooms&nbsp &nbsp &nbsp or be killed in pogroms
