Exxon’s record on advancing, promoting and retaining women is poor. And its record on human rights for LGBTQ employees might be worse. Indeed, the oil giant was the target of gay rights protests for years and only recently has caught up with modern corporate standards in that arena.
See page 62 in the "oh-so-trustworthy-CEI-the-ultra-caring-index-HRC" publishes every year.
Exxon’s record on LGBTQ rights is also poor. When the company acquired Mobil in 1999, Exxon stopped providing benefits to same-sex couples and got rid of an antidiscrimination policy that had protected employees from being treated differently due to sexual orientation.
Exxon only amended its discrimination policy to include gay employees in 2015, after years of criticism and boycotts. By then, Tillerson had been CEO for nine years. The company is the only corporation ever to receive a negative rating on the Human Rights Campaign’s corporate equality index ranking, The New York Times reported that year.
The idiots at HRC are claiming the LGBTQI community is closer than ever to achieving full equality for the LGBTQ community: http://www.hrc.org/ so much so it's plastered on their front page, yet buried in it's bowels in the Transgender section are bullshit commentary speak about the 1 transgender woman who was murdered this year and the two-spirit woman who was murdered, but nothing about the transgender man who was murdered by the police.
If you think it's going to get better, you need to wake up. Just because talking heads use words like "the American people" and "let's work together to make America great again" doesn't mean they are referring to people like us. Trying to point out that commentary like this is part of the problem is more deflection. If not only those 3 LGBTQ members had not been murdered, if all the senseless murders since Jan !, 2017 had not happened, if all the senseless murders in prior years had not happened then those proclamations would be true.
As along as LGBTQ people are slaughtered, misgendered, homeless, jobless, unhealthy, discriminated against, as long as women are sexually abused, murdered, discriminated against, as long as children are mistreated, murdered and on and on ad nauseam every thing that comes out of their mouths is a bullshit lies.
