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.

Pity the poor, persecuted, deprived White heterosexual male...always being victimized (Sarcasm intended)...

Sounds like a W.H.A.M. (White heterosexual Angry Male) here. He's getting a dose of what gay and lesbian teachers have had to endure for years only they had to stay in the closet. Or loose their job...

This is quite possible. 

What is with people lately. The right-wing conservatives have a not so hidden agenda and it's getting worse by the day. 

Wait.  Am I missing something here?  What about what was done to this man is a right wing agenda?  Come one people.  Right is right and wrong is wrong.

And liberals don't??? Come one.

Everyone has an agenda. Even you.

And people are getting worse by the day.

And by the way, I'm gay. I have know a couple of lesbian women who fit this mold. Not because they're lesbians. Just because they're narrow minded people. Yes... even gays and lesbians can be narrow minded too.

Bull!

Which one is the lesbian?

They're both pretty handsome. 

Freaking lesbos! I know them. They can be very vindictive, even when a person i gay. They don't care. They hate men. 

That's a very blanket and highly incorrect statement. I suppose you think black people are all thugs and Hispanics are lazy. 

Yeah, I call bullshit!
