Editor fired for tweets about 3rd gender choice on licenses

(Associated Press) The editor of Vermont’s largest newspaper who was fired after a series of tweets about a state proposal to add a third gender option to driver licenses says he voiced the wrong opinion.

Gannett, the owner of the Burlington Free Press, says former editor Denis Finley violated the company’s social media guidelines.

Finley was criticized after tweeting about the possibility of adding a third gender option on driver’s licenses. On Friday, he tweeted: “Awesome! That makes us one step closer to the apocalypse.”
