    Ms. Green,

    Please spend more time researching your articles. There is Kanawha county in Virginia. Charleston is in West Virginia, which has been its own separate state for almost 150 years.

      W.VA is full of the uneducated mountain folks whose only education comes from extremist xtians.

      They are also, not surprisingly, one of the poorest states in America

    This story is about the state of West Virginia and its capital city, Charleston. This has nothing to do with the state of Virginia.

  3. I’m curious to know how she knows they looked at her Facebook profile, unless they told her of course.

    1. Maybe you missed it but the article clearly has an entire paragraph that answers your question:

      “Mrs Hudson was told by a board member that the offer was recinded because the board looked at her Facebook page, which lead them to believe she was a lesbian”

      Pretty stupid of the board member if you ask me, to just openly admit that but there you go.

    Never judge a book by it’s cover!

  5. So…what was on her FB that caused these people to get all homophobic?

    If she succeeds in her claim it’s a win win situation. She’ll get damages and she won’t have to work for bunch of narrow minded bigots!

  7. Sue the s..t out of them. They deserve it!

  8. Good for her, she needs to teach those hillbillies a lesson about how to stop hating.

    Outside of the case, I would say this is yet another good example to why tight privacy settings on Facebook and other social networks are important, and why next to that you should not share anything on these sites that you would really not want to see out in public…

    Firing someone for being lesbian, or appearing to be lesbian, is completely legal in 30 states in the USA. Including West Virginia.

    Firing someone for being Trans is legal in even more – 35 states. Including New York, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, all of which allow Gay marriage.
