The Mystics announced today the formation of a sponsorship partnership with Exxon Mobil Corporation.
But, "good news" for many of the loyal fans who have supported the Mystics over the years? We think not.
A decade ago, when Exxon acquired Mobil, the new ExxonMobil Corp. "closed" Mobil's domestic partnership benefits program and removed from the company's anti-discrimination policies explicit protections for employees based on sexual orientation. (Source: Human Rights Campaign -- a supporter of the Mystics since the team's launch in 1998.)
The BCs love the Mystics. But when we need gas on our way to the Phone Booth, we'll still continue to fill up . . . anyplace but Exxon.
