What that means is everyone has the same protection.

Keep your sexual preferences to yourself and I don't see a problem.

They shouldn't get any special rights or protections the rest of us don't have. Good for Kansas. Tired of this PC nonsense. You're not a victim because your gay.

Does that include one's heterosexuality?

Every heterosexual I've every worked with has blabbed about their sexual preferences all over the office to everyone. They talk about their straight spouses - many even keep pictures of their heterosexual sex partners on their desk. Many have brought their heterosexual sex-mates to company holiday parties. Etc, etc, etc, etc.

All you seriously telling me that none of your coworkers know what you sexual orientation is?

Okay, then don't talk about what you and your wife are going through at work as well. See how you like it.

But I guess Kansas is afraid of "icky" stuff. How mature.

Not allowing the Kansas Department of Agriculture from having a "We Don't Hire Gay People" or a "We Don't Hire Straight People" policy means you're giving someone special rights? How?

They wouldn't. Sexual orientation as a protected class means that you can't get fired for being straight either.
