Gay Press follows Crystal Dixon, fired by U. of Toledo in 2008 for "antigay column"


The Advocate - a prominent gay newspaper - notes that Crystal Dixon has a job again:

Crystal Dixon, who was fired from her job at the University of Toledo in 2008 for writing a newspaper column that argued being gay is a choice and not a matter of civil rights, has been hired to lead a county human rights department in Michigan.

The Associated Press reports on the move published in the Jackson Citizen Patriot. Dixon will start work next month as director of a joint human resources department for the city of Jackson and Jackson County. She will be classified as a county employee.

In 2008, Dixon lost her university job as associate vice president for human resources over a column she wrote in the Toledo Free Press called “Gay Rights and Wrongs: Another Perspective.” Her column was a response to an opinion written by the newspaper's editor-in-chief.

This is the column that was found offensive enough to get her fired from her job.
