I’m a psych travel nurse who had a horrendous experience at Metropolis State Hospital in Norwalk, CA as I attempted to come help with Covid, putting my life at risk.

I don’t identify as sir. Yes. That’s what you are as well as unhinged

Well what are your pronouns? I've been saying him/her, he/she, them, they because I don't know either. So please do tell so we can get that out of the way and address you accordingly.

Sir, do you know what a red herring fallacy is? 

I truly hope you work in hospice blaming people for the reasons they are dying (cynical). That’s the only area you will excel!

No I assumed nothing. OP said they will discuss their sexuality no matter what. Don't add things I did or did not say. I'm using your logic and according to you, if someone doesn't want to hear something, then it's a problem, yes REGARDLESS of content. You can't dictate what content someone deems as offensive to suit your narrative. OP gave us his/her details and has been contrary since. Stop trying to pick and choose which part of OP's story you want to argue. We can't all be wrong. You're the only one who doesn't seem to understand and arguing for the sake of it. Stop moving the goal posts.

"OP said they will discuss their sexuality no matter what" is not similar to your assumption and your own words as "intentionally engaging coworkers in possible uncomfortable conversations for the sake of creating conflict".  I don't know the OP nor what exactly transpired between him and the co-worker that led to the horrible homophobic response he got other than that under no circumstances should someone make such a comment about gay people.

A good example of when you’re devoid of logic and resort to ad hominem attacks. I’m excelling in my career and education.

All your statements are attacks against gay people and human rights

The inference of that connotation is quite a quantum leap. Nonetheless, the military history notwithstanding, if we are in a healthcare setting as coworkers (not patients), if I don’t ask you about your bedroom affairs, and you don’t tell me, the probability of either one of us being offended is nil, zero, zilch, nada! That’s my point. 

bedroom affairs? is that referencing "gay culture" with happens in the bedroom? If a straight male co-worker says they went out to dinner with their girlfriend is that discussing bedroom affairs?

I think you're being intentionally obtuse. No one said that coworker's word were valid, justified, nor approved of them. You keep trying to slide that in when it simply has not been approved in any form during this thread. Secondly, OP hasn't shared any further details nor answered questions since. Next, no one has inferred OP's sexuality is negative either. And lastly, if someone is uncomfortable with a topic and you discuss it anyway, ie no matter what, then yes you're intentionally engaging them in uncomfortable conversations. You're so busy looking for a reason to make everyone be offensive that you're passing by the point and going against your own logic. ?

Bedroom affairs is not exclusive to homosexuality.

Cool. I will address you as Kween now instead of OP, or xwill, your screen name. For clarification though, Kween as in Billy Porter? He's hilarious!

so you never ever bring up a significant other at work? what do you say when asked about personal stuff like say "who did you go on vacation with?".

OMG! Why are you so desperate to be offended? Straight couples don't have bedroom affairs now? Doesn't matter which sexuality, bedroom affairs apply to everyone. Stop with that nonsense.
