Employee fired from hospital for rejecting trans ideology in online comment
A Pittsburgh hospital allegedly fired a maintenance worker for rejecting the promotion of transgender ideology on company forums, according to a former employee who spoke exclusively with Libs of TikTok.
Tom F., a former plumber with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), told Libs of TikTok that he was fired on June 24 after replying to a picture posted to the hospital system’s Yammer account. UPMC offers Yammer — a social media platform — for employees to share announcements and thoughts.
One employee posted a picture with the phrase, “You don’t turn queer kids into dead kids,” according to pictures obtained by Libs of TikTok. Tom responded to the post by calling it “disingenuous and disgusting” to claim that lack of affirmation for a child’s trans identity leads to suicide.
“I’m not sure why this popped up on my feed, but this is disingenuous and disgusting,” Tom said, adding “For UPMC to allow filth like this to be posted on the company message board is disturbing.”
“Why do you need to talk [with] kids about sex anyway? It’s creepy and pedophilic,” he continued.

Tom told Libs of TikTok that when he logged onto his computer on June 16, the post was the first thing that popped up on his page. He said that post “goes against everything I am for” and that his opinions on the topic are superfluous as he is never face-to-face with clients or patients.
The maintenance worker alleges he was first sent to UPMC’s Human Resources Department on June 17, just one day after making the June 16 post, where he received a suspension letter. On June 24, Tom claims his boss and representatives of his union let him know he was terminated.
Tom’s termination letter states that he was terminated for violating the company’s “harassment-free workplace” and “social networking” policy.
Tom said this was his first documented offense after just shy of six years in the hospital system.
Be it Big Tech or corporations, people are forced to conform to the Left’s gender ideology. Any questioning of this narrative can result in a Twitter suspension — something I’ve dealt with far too many times — or, even worse, losing your ability to provide for you family. But I refuse to conform to this ideology, and neither should you.
UPMC did not respond to Libs of TikTok’s request for comment.
