‘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.

Courageous Bishops Criticize “Devout Catholics” Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi Over Abortion Stances

God bless these bishops.

The mainstream media never tires of highlighting Joe Biden’s cradle Catholicism. “Joe Biden is a devout Catholic!” they exclaim. “Joe Biden was spotted attending Mass on Sunday!” they report. “Joe Biden’s Catholic faith is deeply personal and all about healing!” they declare.

It’s all part of a careful attempt to demonstrate that one can be committed to both the Catholic faith and the tenets of 21st century liberal progressivism.

But many Catholics beg to differ. We think certain tenets of 21st century liberal progressivism—and thus much of the current Democratic Party platform—are fundamentally incompatible with Church teaching, namely that abortion falls under the purview of “reproductive rights,” that same-sex marriage has the same moral legitimacy as heterosexual marriage, and that your gender identity need not conform to your biological sex, to name a few.

And some courageous Catholic priests and bishops have stuck out their necks in order to remind the faithful of this. For example, a recent statement released by the president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Archbishop Jose H. Gomez of Los Angeles, reads in part that “our new President has pledged to pursue certain policies that would advance moral evils and threaten human life and dignity, most seriously in the areas of abortion, contraception, marriage, and gender. Of deep concern is the liberty of the Church and the freedom of believers to live according to their consciences.”

Archbishop Gomez says it’s important to bring this to everyone’s attention because “the nation’s bishops are given the duty of proclaiming the Gospel in all its truth and power, in season and out of season, even when that teaching is inconvenient or when the Gospel’s truths run contrary to the directions of the wider society and culture.”

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco also recently released a statement in response to Nancy Pelosi, who said that many pro-life voters’ support for Donald Trump “gives me great grief as a Catholic” and accused them of being “willing to sell the whole democracy down the river for that one issue.”

To begin with the obvious: Nancy Pelosi does not speak for the Catholic Church. She speaks as a high-level important government leader, and as a private citizen. And on the question of the equal dignity of human life in the womb, she also speaks in direct contradiction to a fundamental human right that Catholic teaching has consistently championed for 2,000 years,” the first paragraph of the archbishop’s statement reads.

The penultimate paragraph: “I myself will not presume to know what was in the minds of Catholic voters when they voted for the Presidential candidate of their choice, no matter who their preferred candidate was. There are many issues of very grave moral consequence that Catholics must weigh in good conscience when they vote. But one thing is clear: No Catholic in good conscience can favor abortion. ‘Right to choose’ is a smokescreen for perpetuating an entire industry that profits from one of the most heinous evils imaginable. Our land is soaked with the blood of the innocent, and it must stop.”

Nancy Pelosi is notorious for pulling the “Catholic card,” probably even more so than Joe Biden. In 2012 she even met with then Pope Benedict XVI, who no doubt reminded her that human life begins at conception and that all Catholics have an obligation to believe and uphold that truth. Nine years later, however, and her stance on abortion has not changed a bit.

It is clear that one cannot be a devout Catholic and hold the liberal progressive stance on abortion. God bless these bishops for standing up and being willing to correct our leaders who are normally immune from any mainstream criticism.

And if you’re Christian, Catholic or non-Catholic, pray for the souls of people like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi. They probably need it. Pray also for the souls of the untold millions of infants who have been murdered by the heinous act of abortion.
