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