It’s been snowing all day, so it’s nice to see some flowers.

It still shocks (and mostly just disappoints) me how SHOCKED people are when I tell them that it is 100% legal to be fired simply for being gay.
They look at me like I’m lying and say things like "nooooo, that can’t be right?".
I have been fired twice (in Ohio) for being openly gay.
I have been asked:
to not wear my wedding ring
Not acknowledge my wife’s existence
To "just say you have a husband"
To just not answer “yes” when people ask if I’m married because "you’re not REALLY married"
To not bring my wife to the company FAMILY Christmas party
Let people just assume we’re sisters
Just make it easier on everyone and “just say you’re divorced”
These were not requests made from some Mom and Pop shop. I was a corporate executive for a large chain of high volume restaurants. My boss was the President of Human Resources, and she would walk into my office and say the most ignorant things you can possibly imagine.
People in America need to be educated on the reality that is life as a gay person in  this country.
It’s not all gay pride parades and appletinis. 
We need a leg to stand on.
We need people to wake up and educate themselves on the rights we are denied.
We need people…gay, straight, and in between, to open their eyes, stop ignoring what doesn’t directly effect them, and educate themselves.

Same (or worse) goes for trans. Not to mention other countries…
