Hosted by Frann Michel, this episode of the Old Mole Variety Hour features Bill Resnick interviewing Chris Toensing about the ouster of the Morsi government in Egypt; Joe Clement talking with Adam and Daisy about starting a workers' cooperative pub in Portland; Larry Bowlden reviewing a recent novel by Susanna Moore; and Denise Morris talking with author and activist Yasmin Nair about the limitations of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act and the discussion around it.
Denise Morris talks with Yasmin Nair about the Employment Non-Discrimination Act and its limits. They discuss changes in the current version of the law and its assumptions about the innate nature of sexual identity and the kinds of trans* presentation it would protect. Nair observes that while the Act would have symbolic importance and legal usefulness, real change cannot rely only on the courts. Though advocates of ENDA point out that it is legal to fire someone for being gay or trans in 34 states, Nair points out that it is legal to fire someone for no reason in 49 states where at-will employment law prevails.
