    Answered . I get that you were fired for your free speech in a private workplace, and I get that you make videos that have something to do with gender and double standards, but then you say you have a question. "[I]s there any hang i can do what about what about The land known as North America" is the only question I can find in what you wrote, and it doesn't make sense to me.

    Answered . Reading between the lines to the utmost degree (!), it seems that you were fired for making some videos that were objectionable to co-workers and brought to your employer's attention. This is not a free speech issue. Your free speech rights are a protection against the government. If you were fired because the women at your workplace went to your employer and stated that they were uncomfortable working with you because of statements in your videos, you were most likely lawfully terminated. If you were represented by a union, you could talk to the union about appealing, but the union has to represent those co-workers, too, so don't be surprised at any decision the union might reach declining to go forward.

    You simply can't expect to do what you want to do with no care for the consequences unless you are prepared to live up to that code by not beefing about the consequences of what you do. It's as simple as that.
