Harassment

I'm beginning to learn how the law operates. I can't help to feel discriminated by the law alone.

I started with this company in October of last year. After training in December I was assigned to her team (the manager that harassed me). Based on her perception of my sexuality or what her stereotype of my gender should be she began making degrading comments.

I am a homosexual male, however I don't advertise it. Not because I am ashamed because I am private. I never told her my sexuality, however a co-worker of mine new and in corporate America word travels fast.

In any event, she began referring to me as a woman. She commented on my clothing and how it related to the way "my people" wore their clothes. She also used her perception of my sexuality a topic of group meetings. All of which made me extremely uncomfortable and self-conscious.

The problem that I am finding is that homosexuals are not covered under any discrimination laws in Central Florida. I've read numerous times that, regardless, it is harassment.

They found that she didn't mean the comments in the way that I perceived them. She knew what she was saying and what she meant.
