A transgender man in New Jersey is suing Amazon, claiming he was harassed and denied a promotion with the online giant after telling his boss he was pregnant.
Shaun Simmons claims he told supervisor Mike Menno about his pregnancy in June 2019. Menno then told another supervisor, Tyler Houpt, and word spread through the Princeton fulfillment center, according to a federal lawsuit, which was filed Monday.
Simmons said he was soon harassed by other employees at the warehouse, including in the mens bathroom, where one worker asked, Arent you pregnant?
Menno and Houpt also allegedly began criticizing Simmons work performance in an attempt to get him demoted.
After Simmons complained to human resources, he was placed on paid leave, according to the suit.
When he returned from leave, Simmons says he was demoted to item picker, which required him to lift large bags of dog food and other heavy items, the New Jersey Law Journal reports.
Simmons told human resources lifting such weight in his condition was causing abdominal pain. He was placed on paid leave again in July and told to furnish a doctors note for any pregnancy-related accommodations.
He claims he provided the required documentation but was denied an accommodatio

It belongs in a mental institution.
Who can keep track of whom? Or which? Or what?
Really, it’s hard to tell who’s on first.
Just to keep this straight, a transgender man is a woman deluding herself into pretending she is a man? Because biology 101 says no man that is born that way, ever got pregnant.
Maybe they have trouble spelling She?
I’ll self-censor on this one too.
I know it’s wrong, but I’m enjoying this story WAY more than I should!
So... Still had a functional uterus... Had not had an Addadicktome... Was obviously still having “straight sex”...
Instead of treating mental disorders... We dress them up and put them on display.
It appears that Amazon hires stark, raving lunatics.
Pray for this country.
Seems that satan is gaining ground.
Transgender pregnant man????????????
So, during HER pregnancy, she continues to use the Men’s Room.
To be fair, I have heard that Amazon can indeed be a very hard taskmaster. I’ve heard there is much age discrimination.
I recall reading about a 52 y/o veteran in good health, who eventually worked himself to death trying to accommodate to constantly changing time efficiency standards. As you can imagine, there is generally high employee turnover with Amazon.
A logical impossibility.
One cannot discriminate against a pregnant man because men cannot get pregnant.
Therefore, before claiming pregnancy discrimination the person must also acknowledge that they are of the female sex.
Who is on first. What’s on second.
Men cannot get pregnant, they do not have the correct plumbing for that.
Only females can get pregnant.
It’s basic biology.
Aint that the truth!
What employers are lining up for this thing? DNC?
I always get confused about these things ... transgender male, does that mean it’s a she or he, and transgender female does that mean he is a she or the other way round?
maybe she didnt get the promotion because boss realized how stupid she was to think she was a man who was pregnant?
