No, Virginia, There Is No Nondiscrimination Policy

News Analysis: Virginia Gov. McDonnell's executive directive on employment discrimination is about appearances, not policy

Over the past month, three differing documents produced by two statewide elected officials in Virginia have led to a whole lot of confusion about where the Commonwealth stands on protection of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people from discrimination.

This is retarded. I can't wait until the day when sexuality is no longer a deciding factor in so many aspects of human life.

Typical "moderate" republican. Talking out of both sides of his mouth hoping not to suffer political damage.

Thankfully, governors fo the Commonwealth are limited to one term! The governorship will just continue to vacilate between R and D for the near future until the state leans one way or the other again.

Why can't other forms of sexual deviancy be protected as well? Why are pedophiles prohibited from working in day care centers. Thats discrimination plain and simple.

If you are so concerned about equality, then why arent you fighting for my right to have a man/boy relationship? It was commonplace in Greece and Rome.

A new study by Dr. Timothy J. Dailey and the Washington D.C.-based Family Research Council recently confirmed what police and psychiatrists have known for decades: a definitive link exists between male homosexuality and pedophilia.

The report entitled Homosexuality and Child Sexual Abuse, shows that while homosexual men make up less than three per cent of the adult male population, they commit a disproportionate number (one third or more) of child sexual molestations. Dailey's report is being sent to parents, youth groups, school administrators, Catholic bishops, and religious organizations.

Homosexuality and Child Sexual Abuse presents a number of controversial findings. The first is that a significant percentage of child sexual abuse victims are boys. The second finding of Dailey's report contradicts the "inaccurate but widely accepted claims of sex researcher Alfred Kinsey" that homosexuals comprise at least 10 per cent of the population. Based upon a study of three large data sets, the General Social Survey, the National Health and Social Life Survey, and the U.S. Census, "a recent study in demography estimates the number of exclusive male homosexuals in the general population at 2.5 per cent, and the number of exclusive lesbians at 1.4 per cent," writes Dailey.

The FRC study also demonstrates, with a wealth of anecdotal evidence, that pedophile themes can be found throughout "mainstream" gay literature, including fiction anthologies such as: The Penguin Book on International Gay Writing, The Gay Canon: What Every Gay Man Should Read, and A History of Gay Literature: The Male Tradition. Interestingly, the late gay Beat poet Allen Ginsberg was a pedophile, and wrote articles for publications associated with the North American Man-Boy Love Association. "I reread Collected Poems and Ginsberg's two subsequent collections, surprised by the pattern of reference to anal intercourse and to pederasty that emerged," writes Dailey

As for your sis- you can screw her all ya like but your ALREADY related-why would you need to fill out a paper saying you want to be related from now on?

See, I can pick my sis up at school because we're related, I can't pick up her boyfriend because we are not related. See now?

So, you can't tell right from wrong? Only if someone tells you step by step, or what? Thats pretty creapy. Like Gacey or something.

Well, I know when I do something negative or something positive, it's really not that hard.

"While he makes no attempt to disguise his personal bias, Cameron dresses up his studies with footnotes, bibliographies and charts, and then publishes them in bogus "academic" journals. His work is propaganda masquerading as science and has been repeatedly unmasked as such by many legitimate scientists. Cameron himself has been cast out of both the American Psychological Association and the American Sociological Association. The ASA declared that, "Dr. Cameron has consistently misinterpreted and misrepresented sociological research on sexuality, homosexuality, and lesbianism."
