Oh and women can no longer vote!
… is what we expect Kansas Governor Sam Brownback might say next after pulling something like this.
He rescinded an executive order that protected state employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

This man literally undid the good that former Governor Kathleen Sebelius did for the LGBT community in Kansas.
The Human Rights Campaign's national field director Marty Rouse issued a statement:
"This is a dramatic reversal for Kansas. For eight years, LGBT state employees have been guaranteed non-discrimination protections and in one foul, reckless, and shameful decision, Governor Brownback has taken the state backward. His deplorable behavior is a direct assault on fairness and equality in the state."
We're honestly just left speechless.
We find it hard to believe people can STILL be so backwards! It's 2015, people! Wake up!
Basically, now the governor can fire an employee simply because they're gay! Ridiculous!!
