Unbelievably fucked up Ohio Supreme Court non-ruling

Lactate on your own time, lady

On Thursday, the Ohio Supreme Court affirmed that Totes/Isotoner had the right to fire breastfeeding mother LaNisa Allen for taking breaks to pump milk. Yeah, you read that right. Timothy P. Reilly, attorney for Totes/Isotoner, told the Columbus Dispatch, "Totes has taken the position since the beginning of this case that it terminated the plaintiff (Allen) for a proper reason, and that's that she took unauthorized work breaks, regardless of her sex or condition." Because unauthorized pumping, clearly, can be divorced from one's "sex or condition."

Because yeah - apparently breast feeding has nothing to do with being female, so it's not discrimination since all the breast feeding men at the company got fired, too!
