    At the risk of this thread turning into a shitshow, Cambridge, Mass., will pay a stipend to its gay employees that they hope will offset the federal taxes they have to pay for putting their spouses on their healthcare plans:

    If this happens, I look forward with great anticipation the day that someone decides to pay me more to offset the cost of the "smoker surcharge" on my insurance plan.

    Ram-rod discrimination. And they'll make it a "hate crime" to complain about it.

    You wanted the door open. Now you got to put up with the visitors.

    Did Adam Sandler and Kevin James author this bill?

    This isn't about special treatment. We never asked for that. This has always been about equality. What, this is special treatment? Well, about time, assholes!

    If we could get this thread locked with another "eat a dick" comment, that would be awesome.

    Except it's not discrimination. It's leveling the playing field by combating federally enshrined discrimination.

    This cannot possibly stand up in court.

    So I would assume the City of Cambridge will be offering a stipend to women who do the exact same job as men but are paid less.

    Or is that not considered discrimination?
