Isn't that (emergency notification, power of attorney, hospital visitation rights) one of the central arguments used by the left to justify same-sex marriage?

Edited to add: I repeated this to DH, conservative, white, military, law enforcement. HE thought you were crazy.
You and he can have your opinion. I never said I'm oppressed. I let my work show my value to the company and I have security in that. I have no further protections than that. I can be fired for ANYTHING.



Is there any group of employees that is easier to fire with no or minimal legal reprocussions?

I think not.



Do straight white males get any preferential hiring treatment? Nope.
