"The executive order has two parts: It makes it illegal to fire or harass employees of federal contractors based on their sexual orientation or gender identity, and it explicitly bans discrimination against transgender employees of the federal government."
Let me make this clear: There are plenty of things I really don't like about President Obama. While being a better alternative to the awful-sauce misogynistic racist homophobic transphobic islamophobic shitstain conservative options, he's still bombing people and failing to address anti-choice terrorism and so on. But sometimes he does good things, and this is pretty great.
