Woman Fired for Expressing Her Personal Opinions

~ The Rebel ~ 2013/01/07 17:21:07

Crystal Dixon, formerly employed at the University of Toledo, was fired “after she wrote a personal letter to the editor of a local newspaper objecting to the characterization of homosexuality as being the same as race.” I thought our nation’s universities were bastions of diversity. They are not. They are cesspools of forced conformity to a radically liberal moral, social, cultural, and political agenda.

Comparing a person’s race to where a man sticks his penis is an insult of the highest order to those who struggle every day with how people evaluate them because of what they see.

“I take great umbrage at the notion that those choosing the homosexual lifestyle are ‘civil rights victims.’ Here’s why. I cannot wake up tomorrow and not be a black woman,” she wrote. “I am genetically and biologically a black woman and very pleased to be so as my Creator intended. Daily, thousands of homosexuals make a life decision to leave the gay lifestyle evidenced by the growing population of PFOX (Parents and Friends of Ex Gays) and Exodus International just to name a few.”

Homosexual sex is what a person does.

    This is outrageous, but it's also very ironic. First academic institutions and other employers fired people for voicing opinions that could be misconstrued as racist. Then they started firing people for making truthful but unpopular statements about women. And now they're back to discriminating against black women, who have an understandable problem with the idea that sexual kinks are the same thing as ethnicity and skin color (or gender, one might add).

    Is it politically correct to be racist and sexist if one perceives a black woman as a "homophobe"? Is it ok for gays to mock black people and their ancestors by comparing their own comparatively minor issues to the problems that black Americans have faced in the past, and often still face? Only enlightened progressives know the answer. A Neanderthal like myself thinks that everyone's right to free speech should be respected and defended, and that nobody should be fired simply for having an own opinion.

    I've read her story ..
    there's absolutely NO Reason why she should have been fired at all ...

    YET ..
    despite being advertised as 'inclusive' ..
    the APPEALS court in her locale (Fed)

    actually UPHELD the discriminatory policies of the College ..
    (it upheld excluding those who express other ideas than what the College promotes)

    You can read the article from the link above ..

    EXCLUSION is a part and parcel of inclusion ..
    discrimination confirmed ..
    you can claim 'inclusion' as a public agency ..
    yet FIRE someone for different beliefs ..

    She is right that no one has a choice in being born a certain race but one does at the very least have a choice in disclosing their sexual orientation and acting or not acting sexually on their orientation.

    Good grief. This is just exactly what many on the left want - for conservatives and/or Christians to have no freedom of speech.

    Absolutely NO reason for her to be fired. She should sue her employer for wrongful dismissal.

    The legal team at the American Freedom Law Center said the following in its rehearing request for Ms. Dixon:

    “Dixon was fired from her employment as associate vice president for human resources with the University of Toledo because she expressed her personal, Christian views as a private citizen in an opinion piece published in the Toledo Free Press. Plaintiff did not occupy a political position nor did she publicly criticize any identified policy of her employer in her writing. Rather, plaintiff was fired for expressing her personal religious beliefs in a local newspaper on a very controversial issue: gay rights.”

    Since the University of Toledo is a government-funded school and not a private non-tax-payer funded educational institution, speech and text (press), even unpopular speech and text by liberal standards, is protected under the First Amendment that guarantees “the freedom of speech” and “of the press.” Not the guarantee of some speech, but of all speech.
