THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — “Brumby [the woman’s supervisor] stated during court depositions that the thought of someone with male sexual organs in women’s clothing was “unsettling” to him, was “something I don’t like to think about,” and was something he viewed as “unnatural.” Brumby also freely admitted he thought Georgia legislators would think Glenn’s presence at the Capitol would be “immoral.” — GA Voice
The 11th Circuit Panel didn’t agree and ruled that Vandy Beth Glenn, a legislative editor in the GA Assembly, was illegally fired by her supervisor Sewell Brumby, for planning a gender transition. The judges considered the firing as sex discrimination. All three judges on the panel agreed on the matter, including a judge thought to lean anti-LGBT.
This decision is almost certain to have a huge and far reaching impact on trans people’s rights nationwide. It could, however, be appealed, maybe to the Supreme Court. Stay tuned.
