SAVANNAH, Ga. -- A transgender fire chief has filed a federal discrimination lawsuit against the small Georgia city where she led the fire department for more than a decade, then was fired 18 months after she began coming to work as a woman.
Rachel Mosby says her firing last summer by the city of Byron not only cost her wages and retirement benefits, but also tarnished her reputation. The lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Macon says city officials fired Mosby based on her sex, gender identity, and notions of sex stereotyping.
A city of about 4,500 in a farming region outside Macon, Byron hired Mosby as its fire marshal in 2007. The city established its first professional fire department a few months later and promoted Mosby to fire chief in January 2008.
The lawsuit says Mosby spent years growing the department, obtaining grants to pay for equipment and improving its rating, which insurers use to help assess a communitys fire risk.
Mosby started coming to work as a woman in January 2018, more than a year after she began a medical transition. At first, city hall colleagues and administrators were supportive, she said, but it didnt last long.
After making her transition public, Mosby said, she was ordered to start wearing a uniform the first day she came to work in a skirt. Previously, Mosby often wore suits and ties. Some city officials insisted on referring to her using male pronouns, according to the lawsuit. When Mosby fired a reserve firefighter who called the chief a slur to her face, the firefighter appealed and was reinstated by the city.

A crazy man, a culture run by lunatics ... throw in idiot lawyers ... mix well...
but also tarnished her reputation.
He tarnished his own reputation with deciding to identify and present himself to the world as a female, even though he’s male.
He brought that all on himself.
It was fired because it is 100% mentally unstable and therefore a danger to the department.
My guess is that the town's lawyer knows this.
Yep, favored minorities, sexual deviants, etc., can never be incompetent. By virtue of their minoritiness they are better than you and me, smarter, morally superior, we should know that.
Byron is about 5 minute car ride from me.
Not surprised they don’t want to tolerate this BS.
Might be a good reason to not hire these perverts in the first place. Avoid the trouble by not hiring these mental cases with a big chip on their shoulder in the first place.
He could always be a lumberjack.
If I do a good job for a number of years and then decide to go on drunken benders nobody would give me any sympathy either.
Attention whoring has its price.
It tarnished its own ‘reputation’.

An “alphabet” wacko strikes again. I’m shocked he was shocked when he became a she.
According to the article at least 3 reasons were cited for termination. They sounded legit to me. One was failure to maintain a certification. Pretty important stuff in the fire rescue game IMO.
If he is now pretending to be a woman, he used deceptive means to get hired and was not honest and forthright during the employment process.
Biden should be bold for his VP pick ... and choose a 35 year old Japanse man who thinks hes a 14 year old Loli girl.
