Appeals court orders trans professor reinstated at Oklahoma university

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered Southeastern Oklahoma State University to reinstate Rachel Tudor, a transgender professor on track for tenure, who was fired because of her gender identity.

Tudor was fired in 2011 because her “lifestyle” offended the religious beliefs of the school’s vice president for academic affairs.

Tudor sued and won her case in 2017. The university was ordered to pay her $1,165,000 after a, Oklahoma jury found that her civil rights were violated. The appeals court unanimously rejected a challenge to that verdict.

Tudor sued under Title VII after the Obama Administration’s Justice Department ruled discrimination based on gender identity was gender discrimination.

2. Nice.

I will admit to being a (as I am inclined to say) a boringly heterosexual female. I will also say that I don't full understand trans people, but I want to hasten to add that my life experience has not been connected to such things as transgender. I'm on the old side, 73. Some 50 or more years ago I was an airline employee at DCA, Washington National Airport. Many (not all, but many) of the men I worked with were gay. In the early years they were not at all open to their sexuality.

There are aspects of being transgender I don't understand, and I know it's because it's outside my personal experience. In my own personal life I know one trans gender person. It's highly possible I actually know others, but have no idea they are trans.

I have various friends who have children who are trans, and I'm in a certain amount of awe. My own two sons are firmly heterosexual. Which means I have not dealt with such things as a trans child.

4. Theocratic Blunder

That violation of civil rights was costly. Really wish they could have named who that Vice President that was 'offended'...
