    Play up your gayness and win a few million

    US policeman told to 'tone down gayness' wins $19m

    Of course we all oppose discrimination .
    But we straight males -- in particular ---all know what a liability and danger a hyper and melodramatic gay can be .
    Just the hugest pain imaginable . And very boring .

    But here's a way to play the game and scam the system .
    Remember folks , if you are not PC , the thought police will get you .



    Police Sgt. Keith Wildhaber says the comments left him feeling he'd been "punched in the gut"
    A gay Missouri police sergeant has won almost $20m in damages, after being told to "tone down the gayness" to get a promotion.
    Keith Wildhaber of St Louis county alleges he was passed over for promotion 23 times.
    A witness testified that one of Sgt Wildhaber's superiors described him as being "way too out there with his gayness".
    Local officials say there will be leadership changes to the police board.
    Sgt Wildhaber filed a lawsuit against the police in 2017, after allegedly being passed over for a promotion 23 times despite stellar performance reviews.
    The lawsuit alleges that in 2014 he was told to "tone down the gayness" to get a promotion by John Saracino, then a member of the St Louis County Board of Police Commissioners. Mr Saracino denied making the comment.
    "It was devastating to hear," Sgt Wildhaber told the court, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
    He added that he felt like he'd been "punched in the gut".
    After making a complaint, Sgt Wildhaber alleges he was reassigned to work the midnight shift in a station further away from his home.
    A witness testified that a local police captain, Guy Means, called Sgt Wildhaber "fruity" and told her he would never be promoted as he was "way too out there with his gayness". Captain Means also denied making these comments.
    The jury found Sgt Wildhaber had been discriminated against, and also was the victim of retaliation after making a complaint.
    He was awarded $1.9m in actual damages and $10m in punitive damages for discrimination, and $999,000 in actual damages and $7m in punitive damages as victim of retaliation.
    A member of the jury told reporters: "We wanted to send a message.
    "If you discriminate, you are going to pay a big price... you can't defend the indefensible."

    I think he's just trying to think of something different to post about. Sad really.

    Let me see if I can help you guys and put you out of your misery .

    This is a section titled , Bizarre News Stories .

    Perhaps the word Bizarre is outside of your day- to day vocabulary .
    People who do not have English as their first language often confuse themselves because of another word , Bazaar .

    Where are you guys from ? It's nice if you bring an international flavour to the forum and I am always happy to help you with difficulties .

    You seem to exist entirely in the Grocery Check-out stand. You really should stop reading those rags.

    Well hello new guy, you seem a bit condescending or am I just reading you wrong?

    Are you copying and pasting into the forum? If so you need to be providing links to where the text is coming from.

    Hi Betty ,
    If I copy and paste I always indicate .

    Don't confuse my articulate , mature and knowing style with those that crave my talent . .

    I schooled many of them .
    Big difference is that I do not deal in Fake News -- I have never been compromised by the Swamp .

    I enjoyed your post so much that I involuntarily farted . First since August 93.

    A great relief .

    We may disagree on one or two trivial details but you are in close touch with your funny bits .

    Spiffing . Absolutely TH .

    P.S. Did you really want a link to the Sergeant 's evidence as reported in the St Louis Post Dispatch -- see OP for those links ?

    Really ? I think jam making and general cleaning need a higher prioritising .

    If you did not find the OP funny and sad , I can only conclude that your time in the final
    waiting room will be short .

    Come on old chap , show us a few signs of life .
