Wyoming, USA: With Rejection of Anti Discrimination Bill, State Now 0 for 3 on Gay Rights

Written by scott on January 31st, 2013

WyomingWell, after voting down both a marriage equality bill and a domestic partnership bill, Wyoming confirmed its status as a backwards backwater with a vote against an anti-discrimination bill that would have offered Wyoming’s LGBT citizens some protections, the Star-Trubune Reports:

The Wyoming Senate rejected a bill today that would prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The standing vote was 13 for the bill and 15 opposed. Opponents claimed Senate File 131 would create a protected class of employees and would result in lawsuits against employers.

Yes, because you wouldn’t want employers who fired or mistreated LGBT employees to face any actual consequences.
