    Wonder how gay workers in Atlanta and Miami feel about this.

    I imagine that they have mixed feelings.

    Amazon has 20 cities on the “finalist” list. Of the 20, 11 are in states that protect gays and lesbians from discrimination, and 9 are not. If Amazon is interested in selecting a location that is “gay supportive” (as Stephen likes to say) in order to facilitate employee relocation and hiring, then the 11 are preferable to the 9.

    I don’t think that it is unreasonable to point that fact out to Amazon, particularly since other major companies take non-discrimination laws protecting gays and lesbians into account when making decisions about locating facilities.

    I personally think that it is time that national companies take non-discrimination laws into consideration when making location/relocation decisions, and it appears that a significant number of companies do so, for sound business reasons.

      Or just continue to use it as an excuse to foment prejudice against the South.

    hmm……

    I’ll not accept this as an invitation to think better of gay rights activism.

      White gay liberals’ contemptuous attitude towards any place on Earth not pre-designated as a gay ghetto is making it us harder to make inroads with the rest of America.
