What goes on in "the barn" is off topic. I also agree with you that far too many people walk around all day trying to figure out what's going to offend them.
I think, however, you may be missing the point many of us are trying to make. I've said many times. I forgive JT for what he said (not that he cares what I think). I've also said many times it's 2021. He SHOULD HAVE known better. He made a mistake it will cost him. I've made mistakes that have cost me. I'm sure you've made mistakes that have costed you.
In terms of RL dropping him. They had to. It was absolutely the right business decision.
I think many here would have an apoplectic seizure if they were at my work any time all the people were collected in the barn. Red, Black, white, brown, yellow, straight or not. Everything is fair game from ethnicity to sexual orientation. And we all love each other like family, as is pretty much the norm in difficult, hazardous occupations.
This bleeding heart taking offense at every perceived slight is nonsense. People need to quit looking for reasons to whine they are offended.
