Male Gym Teacher Accuses School Of Firing Him "For Being Straight"
Gregory Kenney, a 50-year old Upper West Side gym teacher in Manhattan, says that his lesbian boss fired him "for being straight."
The NY Post reports:
Krieger allegedly forced him to coach three sports, even though his contract only required him to join two teams, according to his reverse discrimination suit.
When he complained that the extra responsibilities interfered with his family obligations Krieger allegedly told him, “We all make choices,” the suit says.
After Kenney told Krieger that he couldn’t keep working nights and weekends, she reported him to the headmaster “while a single, female teacher faced no scrutiny when she refused to coach a third season.”
Kenney claims the allegedly biased athletic director “routinely favored other single, younger females without children and discriminated against [him] because of his gender, sexual orientation, ‘traditional family status,’ and age.”
Kenney's lawyer also maintains that “On at least one occasion Kenney was dissuaded from attending social events with his peers because he was a heterosexual, married male with children, who wouldn’t fit in with [Krieger’s] ‘culture.’”
Three other married teachers with children were reportedly fired and replaced with lesbians, according to the suit.
