‘Transmasculine’ Employee Sues Nike for $1.1 Million After Being Called ‘Wrong’ Pronouns at Work

Nike fanned the flames of the crazy Left and may pay the price as a result.

Jazz Lyles, a former engineering contractor with Nike, is suing the far-left corporation for $1.1 million for being “misgendered” by their co-workers.

Lyles, who was born a female before undergoing a transition of sorts, demands compensation because co-workers would not use the preferred pronouns of “they, them, and their.”

“The lawsuit, filed this week in Multnomah County Circuit Court, alleges Nike … exposed Lyles to gender identity-based discrimination and harassment and retaliation,” Willamette Week reported last Tuesday. “Lyles identifies as transmasculine/nonbinary. That means Lyles was assigned the female gender at birth but identifies with masculinity and is a nonbinary person.”

The lawsuit contains a great deal of “woke” gobbledygook, and represents the latest encroachment upon civil society by a deranged LGBT activist.

“Gender identity is the personal sense of one’s own gender,” Lyles’ lawsuit reads. “One’s gender identity can be the same or different from their sex assigned at birth. An individual’s gender identity is at the core of an individual’s self-concept.”

Lyles filed the lawsuit in the Multnomah County Circuit Court last week. Lyles has also accused Mainz Brady, an IT staffing firm based in San Mateo, Calif., of discrimination as well.

“Nike had a pattern and practice of turning a blind eye to reported and known harassment,” the lawsuit states, “instead blaming the harassed, treating them as the problem and as troublemakers, all the while failing to ever investigate or take corrective action to remedy the harassment.”

Lyles blames the fact that “they” were not hired as a permanent employee because of the discrimination, and believes that their civil rights were not adequately protected.

Nike is finally paying the price after pushing washed up NFL QB Colin Kaepernick as a hero for dropping to his knees because he hates the American flag.

Big League Politics has reported on Nike’s work to divide the country in order to maximize their profits:

A former NFL quarterback has been selected as the face of Nike’s “Just Do It” campaign for its 30-year anniversary.

Colin Kaepernick Tweeted the first image from this year’s campaign Monday afternoon.

“Believe in something,” he said. “Even if it means sacrificing everything. #JustDoIt” …

Kaepernick started the NFL’s National Anthem protest controversy by kneeling for the Anthem in 2016. Players who have joined in the protest say that it is about recognizing unfair treatment of minorities by police.

In August of the same year, Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in the same month, and has been jobless ever since.

Nike is starting to pay the price for fanning the flames of social justice insanity.

Federal Judge Issues Ruling to Allow Elective Abortions in Texas Amidst Coronavirus Pandemic

The abortion industry will continue during coronavirus.

Published

on

A federal judge has issued an injunction against Texas Governor Greg Abbott after he banned elective abortions from taking place during the coronavirus pandemic.

U.S. District Court Judge Lee Yeakel, who was appointed to the bench by former President George W. Bush, made the ruling in Austin on Monday banning state officials from preventing abortions in Texas. Abortion providers will be able to perform abortions without restriction at least temporarily because of the ruling.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton wrote in a legal brief that the prohibition on elective abortions was needed to “preserve desperately needed medical supplies for the health care professionals combating the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.”

“Medical professionals are in dire need of supplies, and abortion providers who refuse to follow state law are demonstrating a clear disregard for Texans suffering from this medical crisis,” Paxton said.

Judge Yeakel claimed that the constitutional right for women to snuff out the lives of babies the womb trumps all public health concerns during an unprecedented crisis.

“Regarding a woman’s right to a pre-fetal-viability abortion, the Supreme Court has spoken clearly,” Yeakel wrote. “There can be no outright ban on such a procedure. This court will not speculate on whether the Supreme Court included a silent ‘except-in-a-national-emergency clause’ in its previous writings on the issue.”

Because of Judge Yeakel’s decision, the ban on elective abortions in Texas is off until at least April 13 when a court hearing will be held over the phone.

Big League Politics reported last week on the leftist hysteria that occurred after the states of Texas and Ohio announced their temporary ban on elective abortions:

States like Ohio and Texas have enacted orders to cease all non-essential surgeries.

NBC DFW highlights that these moves “have unleashed a new battle over access to abortions during the coronavirus pandemic.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a statewide order on Sunday March 22, 2020 to limit the use of medical supplies hospitals will need as they plan for rising numbers infections resulting from the Wuhan virus. The order prevents hospitals from carrying out surgeries unless the patient experiences an immediate risk for “serious adverse medical consequences or death, as determined by the patient’s physician.” …

Republican Attorney General Dave Yost sent letters to Ohio clinics on Friday, March 20, 2020 ordering them to stop all “non-essential” surgical abortions. Yost wrote that the procedures are in violation of a March 17 order enacted by the state health director.

Clinics, pro-baby killing groups, and some state elected officials criticized this move, claiming that abortions are both essential and time-sensitive.

“During an emergency, there is always a chance of government overreach under the guise of `security’ or adherence to `law and order,’” the Ohio Democratic Women’s Legislative Caucus declared in a statement. “In times of national crisis, we have seen egregious acts that have circumvented our freedoms before. And make no mistake – we are seeing them today.”

The baby-murder industry will continue unabated, thanks to the activist judiciary, even if it means putting the public at serious risk of catching coronavirus.
