Apple recently removed a “gay cure” application that has been criticized by many. The application was created by Exodus International which targeted “homosexual strugglers” and allows users to learn more about Exodus. The creators maintain that people have a choice to be gay. However, the app was removed at the Apple Store because Apple believes it violates developer guidelines as being offensive to large groups of people.

Additionally, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) does not enforce the protections that prohibit discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation.

Leeds Morelli & Brown Obtains Record Verdict in Sexual Harassment Case
Employers that don't try to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace take heed.
