So I thought my primary employer was going PC and making a big to do about Pride and hosting several diversity sessions in one year.
I come to find out my secondary employer has been mandated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to get all of its employees thoroughly educated in LGBTIQA issues, and those employees who aren’t will not be scheduled—never mind that there are serious staffing shortages in the industry, the unscheduled forgot to paint rainbows on every darned thing.
We’ve evolved to where virtually no one in America cares if Jack Tripper marries Chrissy or Larry. Why must GLBTQIA be forced onto everything from school curicula to employee training?
This is ridiculous! I’m hibernating next year from May 31 through July 1.
If I were subject to hyperwoke indoctrination sessions, sure.
Straight males are subhumans on the intersectionality scale. Cross-dressing trans-lesbians get to look and act the same way, but they are off the scale on intersectionality. Hyper-annoying pronoun requirements act as a pre-emptive strike on cancellation.
Easier said than done as not everyone has that option. Just one of many reasons would be a person that has been with a company for years and is near retirement. They would find it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to find a new job and replace current salary and benefits.
The material they would be forced to study and accept may also go against strong religious convictions.
But we know these things are of no concern to those shoving this agenda down our throats.
Thanks for the link. When I read through it I saw that this is part of wider training to ensure caring and supporting LBTQ seniors and their families.
How is this a bad thing. I guarantee that the state is not ignoring the special needs of other seniors and their families.
Why wouldn’t someone who is in a position that works directly with the public especially in healthcare want to be as widely educated as possible on their patients?
Why not attend the training with an open and curious mindset? Going in with preconceptions on what you are going to learn will not help you.
The first tine I attended unconscious bias training I thought what a load of crap as I started the training. In the first 5 minutes we did an exercise which made me sit back and say wow there is something to this after all. That training has made me a better employee, manager and leader of people I am responsible for and as a person.
“Why not attend the training with an open and curious mindset?”
I’m all for no one receiving full time care being marginalized.
It’s more the manner in which this was pushed through—there was very little notice given to the representatives responsible for employees that this was due by the end of the month, like one week.
And COVID-19 decimated staffing numbers with a lot of voluntary attrition. The manner in which that agency pushed this through with the only option being to remove those not receiving the training by that date, even with shortages, is in my I’m sorry, what?! file.
Would they prefer no one on duty to care for patients with various physical and mental disabilities to those who are pretty fair and don’t hurt anyone but haven’t gone through that training module?
