First of all, good on Ghosn. But, we find it a little odd that Nissan North America waited until after they left Los Angeles for greener pastures in Nashville to announce domestic partnership benefits for all their employees, be they gay, lesbian, bi or transgender. Maybe the South really is changing? Or maybe they figure that peeps in Tennessee will fearfully stay in the closet, hence saving NiMoReNaultCo even more money? You know how bean counters think. We also find it odd that MINI is still gay-hostile, especially as parent BMW is so petrified by vaginas. Maybe they're just anti-lesbian?
