    Told me not to come out, because firing for being gay was completely legal and she could not protect me.   She was afraid that the university's non- discrimination policy would be overturned by the state legislature if it was ever tested -- that is, it meant nothing in actual plication.That was fifteen years ago.   Nothing has changed in Nebraska.

      It's a shame you have to live with that, even with a protection policy.

      And state legislatures forbidding this type of non-discrimination policy is real. It happened in TN already.
