EA, Microsoft, GameStop Earn Perfect Scores from Gay Rights Group

Game publisher Electronic Arts, Xbox maker Microsoft and leading retailer GameStop are among 259 corporations that have been awarded perfect scores for their treatment of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees, consumers and investors.

The announcement comes by way of advocacy group the Human Rights Campaign Foundation and is contained in its 2009 Corporate Equity Index. HRC Foundation President Joe Solmonese commented:

"The 2009 Corporate Equality Index shows that corporate America understands that a diverse workforce is critical to remaining successful and competitive. In the absence of a federal law that prohibits workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression, it is up to employers to take the lead and implement policies that ensure all their employees are protected."

Gay rights = special treatment above and beyond human rights.

But whatever. Let the homos rate things whatever way they want. Does it really matter in the end? NO.

"Gay rights = special treatment above and beyond human rights."

How so?

Bonus points for answering the question without using language like "homo".

I know, it's a depressing realization. :|

wow, this site is so pathetic, i can see how rude people really are here, it just amazes me how Gay people never say anything bad about straight people, because they talk about how they grew up in a homophobic community, and i dont blame them either, this site makes me sick, to hate on a console that doesnt have feelings is one thing, but hating on human beings is another thing, this site is one of my favorites but after reading all these comments, i can see how homophobic ppl are and ignorant. (-_-)

i really don't agree with what that guy said but it is his opinion and he does have the right to say it wether you disagree or not

JsonHenry3569d ago

No, YOU tell me why there is a need for "gay rights" in this country if civil/human rights are being enforced. (and they are)

Get my point? It is a way to get special treatment. Not equal treatment.

qface643569d ago

well when you put it that way i guess it makes sense?

Rock Bottom3568d ago

Lumping these 3 together in a story is just asking for trouble.

NewSchoolGamer3569d ago (Edited 3569d ago )

YoshiMeetsU3569d ago
