Posted on 07/30/2005 5:34:17 AM PDT by cloud8
Raytheon Co. last week expanded its equal opportunity employment policy to include transgender and transsexual workers, becoming the first of the six big defense firms to do so.
Hayward L. Bell, chief diversity officer at the Waltham firm, said the company has also given out information kits on gender identity and expression to managers and human resource professionals "to ensure they are more knowledgeable and better able to support Raytheon employees."

"Save me a good seat!"
Yes, we can see where this is headed and who it's going to benefit ~ first the establishment of variations ~ then the short arm inspections at the start of the work day.
Hell in a handbasket.
Raytheon had better not expect to send the freaks to my building. We'll sik the dogs on them, metophorically speaking, with governments blessing and encouragement.
Raytheon is involved in a lot of really secure work for the government, How many of these freaks do they have working for them and are they really secure. I think maybe the govt should start checking into this.
To which bathroom do you send a man in a dress?
> If the dems control the White House, then this may be mandatory.
The "diversity policy" plan seems to run like this: 1. tolerence of homos, 2. acceptance of homos, 3. same-sex household benefits, 4. bring in the transgendered and transsexuals (although I'm not sure what the difference between the two is, I really don't want to know).
If Hillary Rodham gains control of the White House, I can assure you this plan will be applied to the military.
IT gets its own bathroom.
The question is how to label it.
A stick figure with skirt and penis?
A stick figure with pants and breasts?
A sign that simply says "UNDECIDED"?
Sad to say, where I work this has had to be dealt with.
But, but, what about chickens?
Rosie the Riveter has a new meaning now
Also, don't certain categories represent greater security risks?
THe one with the question mark.
I think that they should gut spending for Massachusetts defense contractor Raytheon. Why not save $2 or $3 billion by gutting fraud from Raytheon?
Do we need Senators Kennedy's and Kerry's votes for any reason? Why not cut out their pork, and the Massachusetts waste at Raytheon.
In the 1980's, Raytheon was a big player in the waste known as SUBACS and Databus -- they had big roles in flushing Federal dollars down the toilet.
There has been something in the Waltham water for years.
This is just a smokescreen by big corporations to appear to be expanding employee benefits while actually doing (and spending) nothing. From the article:
"The company [Raytheon], which employs 80,000 worldwide..."
"Simpson [a freak] said about 18 other Raytheon employees are openly transsexual or transgender."
Do the math and you'll find that Raytheon, in all their generosity, instituted an employee "benefit" that 0.023% of their employees can take advantage of. Way to go, Raytheon!
I used to work with someone who formerly fit the image of the big tall burly lumberjack type in the farmerjohns and flannel shirts. Married, kids, tattoos, etc. Someone came to me one day and said, wide-eyed and breathlessly,
"Did you hear what happened to Bob over Christmas?"
"No. What happened?" I'm thinking horrible train wreck or family tragedy or something.
"He had a sex-change operation."
Some of those distinctly masculine characteristics probably aren't going to go away, even after hormone treatment, but now he looks like some big tall burly tattooed guy whose done some freakish and irreversible things to himself.
He was more than willing to tell anyone anything they wanted to know - just ask. So I asked him, basically - "WTF?"
Well, he wants to be a lesbian, that's why. He likes girls.
Anyway, about that bathroom thing. Obviously none of the guys would let him use theirs anymore, and you can bet he's not getting into the ladies room, so management had to give him one of his own, one of those unisex single units in another building.
I cannot imagine how his life had to be so miserable before, 'living a lie' as he called it, that doing this to himself and destroying everything in his life as well as everyone's around him, could be considered an improvement.
