Local media reports on the first complaint filed under San Antonio's 'non-discrimination' ordinance:
A transgender man claims he feared for his life and left his job after coworkers threatened him.
Now he hopes the city's ordinance to protect the LGBT community that was approved four months ago forces his former employer do what he considers the right thing.
Matthew Hileman was born a woman but is now a transgender man.
"His birth certificate, driver's license, everything about him is male now," said Justin Nichols, Hileman's lawyer.-----
Hileman left his job as a consultant of AT&T in September. He says he had no other choice because two coworkers threatened him by posting a note on his chair after they discovered his secret gender identity.
For the record: We're not buying it.
Several years ago, we worked with AT&T. We've seen their hyper-cautious, over-lawyered, corporate culture up close. It is impossible to overstate the degree to which AT&T has it's head shoved up its rear end with political correctness. This would never happen at AT&T. Any AT&T employee who even thinks about doing something like this would be instantly banished to sensitivity training purgatory.
From the Florida teenagers to the waitress in New Jersey, time frequently exposes these stories as bogus; Cahnman's Musings suspects the San Antonio case will undergo a similar fate in the coming months.
