@senatorromney I am a lesbian. I am also a member of the @churchofjesuschrist
I spoke with a member of your staff this week about the #equalityact
I was told your hesitations in co-sponsoring were regarding losing religious freedoms.
So my question is: Why is one identity more important than another? Both my Mormon, and my Lesbian identities matter. I implore you to consider that.
To the rest of you, contact your Senator and ask the hard questions!!
If you identify as trans AND vegan you are the most protected by the equality act it seems! https://twitter.com/fatisourfriend/status/1230173017428430852 …

Our first time lobbying on Capitol Hill! Honored to join with #hrconthehill to share our story and the importance of the #equalityact anti-bullying legislation and banning conversion therapy nationwide. So cool seeing the #trans flag in front of several members’ offices. Loved spending the day with activist/advocate/social worker El and HRC intern Michael Mareno and meeting members of the Delaware delegation. And soooo proud of our Connecticut Reps and Senators for leading on #lgbtq issues nationwide.

‘Participants felt that managers and employees often differ as to whether an adjustment is seen as “reasonable”, reflecting ambiguity and potential inconsistency in adherence to the Equality Act 2010’ (Heasman et all, 2020, https://dareuk.org/dare-adjustments-toolkit …)
NOW THAT I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION: ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
Instagram is FULL of #thirsttrapthursday images and it’s a shame that those photos are the only ones gaining recognition.
Maybe consider tagging LGBTQ+ organizations (if you feel the need to thirst trap) next time you post a #thotty image!
Let’s create awareness and make our voices heard this #pridemonth! 🏳️🌈
ALSO, if you haven’t already, click the link in my bio to sign and support the #equalityact.
It’s about time we get #thirstyforequality!
“an overwhelming majority of people who responded agreeing with our 'overarching vision' for the new school”. Did the majority know about the breach of the Equality Act ??? https://www.eadt.co.uk/news/unity-schools-partnership-suffolk-contract-despite-tribunal-1-6519171 …
That’s right, I’m taking the #equalityact on and am going to demonstrate that should people be dumb enough to elect anyone to support it, what they are giving up.
That’s right: any coherent or meaningful standard for sexual morality.
At the heart of this UN-American piece of legislation lies no coherent moral justification. Any behavior that finds itself tied to the alphabet-soup-of-sexual-rebellion, is now protected. So, question: how long before pedophilia is protected by law?
How long before keeping a sex slave is protected by law?
The instant that one breaks away from God’s standards, they subject themselves to ANY standard and have no redress for any complaints. #morals#apologetics#reformedtheology#nostandards#nostandardbutgodsstandard
Better be careful with what you say:
"Since last month's ruling, jokes or comments about vegans can be considered harassment in the workplace under the Equality Act 2010."
As a friend observed, only Vegans can make Vegan jokes now.

Have you nothing better to do than conduct a witch hunt against women, gay men, lesbians and bisexuals who want to advocate for their right as laid out in the Equality Act 2010?
Seriously? Why do you hate women and LGB people?
Assistance dogs are dogs which are trained tasks to help their disabled owner or handler. These can be tasks such as retrieving items, alerting to avoid medical emergencies (such as low blood sugar or seizure alerts), or helping the handler manage psychiatric conditions.
When interacting with a disabled person who relies on an assistance dog, you should act as if the dog isn't there - talk to the handler, do not interact with the dog, & do not distract the dog. Doing something as simple as petting the dog can mean they miss a crucial alert, & the handler is put in danger. It's best to think of assistance dogs in the same way you would other disability aids, such as a wheelchair or crutches - If you wouldn't make kissy noises at a wheelchair, don't at an assistance dog!
What's that little thing we're looking for...hang on..it's in there somewhere..oh we've got it..here it is... THE EQUALITY ACT 2010 ACCESS FIR EVERYONEhttps://twitter.com/Imani_Barbarin/status/1230114185704595457 …

Days 16 ( The Devil 😈) and 17 ( The Tower ⚡️) on my current Fool’s (Hero’s) Journey with @pixiecurio Light Seer’s Tarot.
After yesterday’s passing of my Mother in law my head is mashed - this is how I experience The Devil and Tower. Mashed together.
My phone 📲 rang- I answered it to The Devil. 😈 “This is HMRC a tax fraud case has been found in your name - press 1 now or be arrested shortly.” (Interestingly this happened to me before on Devil 👿 Day)
It was so obviously a scam I wondered how anyone could fall for it but still - I’m shaken up by it due to the timing and I could understand when vulnerable it’s an easy thing to do. 😢
I ask my husband if I should call the police. “They won’t do anything - I know it’s been announced on the radio not to call them!”😱 Next up insurance - long story (see justice day post) I’m now uninsured and we need it to drive back to Bath from London.
The family is grieving downstairs and I’m not happy about having to go this fiasco now. 😡
Two hours of being on hold, transferred, jumping through hoops, getting tangled in red tape, almost there, getting cut off, starting again⚡️🤬. Only for a refusal at the end, because, wait for it!
I work with Tarot! ⚡️🤯 When I point out that has nothing to do with my car insurance, they say it does because I could be using it “to do things other than socialising” - 😱 “Erm like commuting? The box I already ticked?” “Erm yes, but for this it’s now £300 more” “So because my occupation is tarot I have to pay £300 more than anyone else? That’s against the equality act of 2010 but don’t worry, I don’t want to give my hard earned legal limited company cash to a company that discriminates.” I was raging at the penalisation of the self employed again today ⚡️⚡️🤬🤬🤬- and being treated yet again as a con artist - especially when I’m the one being conned -👿 I had to absolutely keep a lid on the boiling rage ⚡️🤬 as I went downstairs to a grieving family. 😭💔Not easy.
In the absence of police, justice and an equality “act” all I can do is plaster over social media not to fall for the devil 👿 on the end of the phone 📞 and Grove and Dean discriminate - share if you care 💖
As you'll know, listed building status does not excuse any building in the country from also having to conform with both the Equality Act 2010 and the access provisions of Part M of the Building Regs.
Anyone pretending otherwise is #TakingTheDis

Such a pleasure to see you again today, @jvn. Your courage & commitment to building a better, more accepting world for all is an inspiration. Thank you for lending your voice to the ongoing fight for the #EqualityAct.
First, it is a non sequiter. The conclusion doesn't follow from the initial premise. Second, the statement has no basis in law. Third, its odd for Hewitt-Clarkson to claim to be an expert on the Equality Act when she thinks its a 'protective' characteristic, not a protected one.
Why are you ignoring all the equal rights advocacy that she’s done? “Equality Act, the repeal of DOMA, Restore Honor to Service members Act, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, the Safe Schools Improvement Act and the Equality for All Resolution,” she said in that CNN piece.

Proud to have received a 100% score on #EqualityCalifornia's 2019 scorecard. I remain committed to fighting to enact the #EqualityAct and other policies to promote the rights and dignity of all LGBTQ+ individuals.
A President Bloomberg will:
-Fight to pass Equality Act
-Address disparities in healthcare coverage & treatment
-End HIV/AIDS epidemic by 2030
-Protect LGBTQ+ youth & families
-Ensure safety of LGBTQ+ Americans in justice system
-Reverse ban on trans individuals in military
“We have to pass the Equality Act” @speakerpelosi said to me. I said, with Mitch McConnell how?? Speaker Pelosi said, (I’m paraphrasing here) the voters in states with Republican Senators MUST put pressure on their Senators to force McConnell to bring the #equalityact up to vote. The Equality Act is exactly the legislation that would protect LGBTQ people from the discrimination we would face if the Supreme Court rules in favor of the Trump Administration and Justice Department petition to be able to allow employers to FIRE LGBTQ people based on sexual orientation and gender identity. If you consider yourself an ALLY and live in a state with a Republican Senator I IMPLORE you to call, email, and mail their office and ask them to VOTE on the Equality Act. @humanrightscampaign

Actually you are wrong, Judism has been granted that recognition under the Equality Act 2010. So if you are trying to be clever you have made your self look foolish and dimwitted.

A tribunal has ruled that ethical veganism is a philosophical belief, meaning that an employee could rely upon veganism as one of the nine protected characteristics covered by the Equality Act 2010.
How will this affect employers?
