Expanding Halloween to 365 days per year, the United States Supreme Court has ruled in a 6-3 decision that employers can’t discriminate against employees who come to work dressed as the wrong gender. Dressing up in costume is now an entitled right in America.
Imagine having a business in which the face you put forward to the public is an important one, like finance, real estate, or public relations. And now imagine your male employee comes to work in a wig, make-up, and with a five o’clock shadow. The Supreme Court, with the majority opinion written by Trump appointee, Neil Gorsuch, says you have to grin and bear the ugliness and unprofessionalism no matter what.
Stemming from a lawsuit of a man pretending to be “transgender” (no one has ever transitioned their gender) who was penalized by his funeral home employer for coming to work in a skirt, the court decided that it was now a constitutional right to dress like the mentally ill.
Gorsuch wrote, “An employer who fires an individual for being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions it would not have questioned in members of a different sex. Sex plays a necessary and undisguisable role in the decision, exactly what Title VII forbids.”
In a comment that would be funny if it weren’t so tragic, Gorsuch wrote that sex was “undisguisable.” Words have meanings.
What Gorsuch meant, of course, is that sex is indistinguishable. That argument is as scientifically invalid as it is culturally absurd.
The Supreme Court cannot change the fact that men are men and women are women. Ergo, different standards of dress should apply just as different restrooms would apply. But this is 21st Century America, where science doesn’t matter because Woke Religion is king.
Justices Kavanaugh, Elito, and Thomas all dissented from the majority ruling. There was some argument presented in the majority opinion, and a widely held assumption among commentators, that a religious exemption will exist for religious institutions but likely not for-profit organizations.
Apparently you only have religious freedom to run your business according to the dictates of your conscience if you’re a church or religious organization. Private citizens need not try to exercise their religion freely, at least if it means telling a man not to come to work in fishnet stockings and fake breasts.
