  • Re: Advice on discrimination at work

    @karasti

    Thank you for your contribution, I have been answering job applications related to teaching, but so far no luck, I plan on keep on trying tough, since it is something I love doing and I feel is my contribution to society :)

    Law does protect trans people, but as you mention, law enforcement usually looks the other way, it is also common that people in charge try to scare people to avoid lawsuits. I do plan on filing a lawsuit if it's necessary, however the thought really scares me because it means my job situation will be more difficult than it already is (bosses look down at people who sued their past jobs).

    I'm very torn, my family thinks I should just keep quiet because defending my rights will only get me into more trouble, but my girlfriend and friends think like you, that this is an opportunity for me to help myself and the trans community. I have been making a lot of new activist friends, so that is something really good that happened out of a bad situation.

    Sometimes it helps me to understand that people such as your boss operate from such a place of fear. It is unfair that their fear affects others but at the very least you can be grateful you don't live in such a place.

    I will keep this in mind, thank you so much. The principal is a very catholic person, and usually shuns all things related to sexual diversity :anguished:
