America's current leadership appears to actively seek out ways to isolate and oppress those who do not identify as cis-gender white heterosexual males. The purpose of this comment is to help readers understand the issues queer womyn of color face interacting with society on a daily basis. This comment will outline the harmful expectations of assimilation and how failure to assimilate may make these womyn targets in their work environments. This comment will also compare the handling of employment discrimination under Title VII and Wisconsin law and determine whether Wisconsin law in practice actually affords queer womyn of color more protection than Title VII. The comment concludes suggesting two ways to improve Wisconsin law and hopefully afford queer womyn of color the same protections America's current leadership actively bestows on its chosen group.
