Was chatting with my co-workers in the breakroom today about stuff and I mentioned the one time that I got fired for being gay. 

“What? They can’t do that, can they? Really?”

“They can. I mean, they shouldn’t- but they can. I came out to a co-worker and then the next day I was booted.”

“If they’d done that to me, I would have just stolen something out of spite. Like… a stapler or something,” says the janitor. 

“Well… I was working for the zoo.”

She paused for a moment and her eyes glossed over. “I woulda stolen so many tigers.”

Firing someone for being LGBT is still legal in 27 states.  Pass it on.

Here’s a handy map. 

And for those asking, the zoo is in Indiana, but they have since changed management.
