In a historic ruling on Monday, the Supreme Court ruled that discrimination against LGBTQ people qualifies as discrimination on the basis of sex, and is therefore prohibited under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

The decision—which saw a 6-3 majority and an opinion written by Trump appointee Justice Neil Gorsuch—immediately made it illegal to fire anyone on the basis of their sexuality or their gender identity, a practice which was still legal in 26 states.

Though his administration filed an amicus briefing urging the court not to rule in favor of LGBT people, President Donald Trump shrugged at the decision when asked about it in a round table later that afternoon.

Others in conservative circles were more angry at the ruling.

Among them was far-right author Ann Coulter, who tweeted that the decision meant only straight white cisgender men could get fired from their jobs without a law suit now.

Either Coulter is knowingly spreading lies or she doesn't know anything about the ruling today.

As stated earlier, the ruling made the United States' legal interpretation of Title VII to mean that discrimination on the basis of sex includes discrimination against LGBTQ people.

Title VII specifically forbids employment discrimination on the bases of any skin color, any religion, any sex, and any national origin—not just certain ones.

People were quick to point out just how wrong Coulter was.





People were puzzled because Coulter went to law school.



Yikes.
