In regard to you question: when did YOU get married? I would say then.  (Jul 2, 2015 | post #2)

Not so much the book but the credibility problems: how can you trust the guy to administrate his duties in a just and equitable manner? As a gay citizen how could I trust this guy to be as vigilant for my safety as he would straights? As a gay employee under his supervision how could I trust him to be fair-handed with me in terms of promotions, in terms of not trumping up excuses to get me fired?  (Jan 15, 2015 | post #13)

Study Suggests But Doesn't Prove Genetic Link to Male Hom...

As for Homosexuality's removal as a disorder ne cannot discount the pivotal Hooker blind studies, where psychological profiles from NON-PATIENT (important distinction) gays and straights were given to her peers who, non knowing the orientation of the person profiled were asked to determine the gay ones from the straight. Conclusion? They were indistinguishable. This forced a re-examination of why it was included as a disorder, and it was concluded it was a result of traditional bias rather than factual/provable data. It was politics that included it, it was scientific method that refuted it and called for its removal.  (Nov 19, 2014 | post #99)

Thanks Hon, and let's not forget the Hooker blind studies, where psychological profiles of NON-PATIENT (very important distinction) gays and straights were submitted to her peers who were asked, not knowing the orientation of the person profiled, to pick out those who were gay from straight. Conclusion? indistinguishable. It forced a re-examination of its inclusions as a disorder and generally concluded that it had more to do with traditional biases that any factual/demonstrab le basis. It was politics that was keeping it included, it was scientific proof that had it removed.  (Nov 19, 2014 | post #96)

Judge resigns so he won't have to marry gay couples

I find it interesting that those calling for religious exemptions are not actually asking what is probably the essential question: What Would Jesus Do? And according to your biblical account Jesus outraged the religious leaders by associating with "sinners ", breaking bread with them. Breaking bread with someone was a proclamation of kindredness and in the eyes of religious leaders at that time was paramount with participating in sin with them. So Jesus made a point of personal association with them and still remained that pure sacrifice for sin, and this judge is trying to say his professional and personally distant administration of the law becomes guilty of participating in sin-by whose criteria? Certainly not Jesus. certainly can't find any scriptures that definitely says not to conduct business dealings with non-Christians or sinners or even outlining what business dealings are allowed or not allowed. So if this judge want to quit fine, but to stay in a business and discriminate just simply can't be biblically supported  (Nov 19, 2014 | post #500)

Two things: You are trying to make the case that the vector is significant when taken in context of HIV world-wide you find this is incidental-there are FAR MORE cases of heterosexual vectors when you include all the HV data. Secondly you will find that amongst white the rates are dropping and amongst minorities they are climbing. Why? You can point to the heavy church influence and the prevalence of gay hatred that are such a major part of both the black and Latino communities, the "down-low " culture that has developed, the reluctance for HIV testing for fear of someone finding out and question WHY you are being tested-so many thing that point to anti-gay sentiments as fostering the problem.  (Nov 19, 2014 | post #86)

Thanks Hon and lets not forget the pivotal research that brought this house of cards down: Hooker's blind profile analysis, where she took psych profiles of both gay and straight men, most importantly NON-PATIENT profiles, and challenged her contemporaries to determine who was straight and who was gay. And, the results were that they were indistinguishable. What was clearly demonstrated was for years the listing of homosexuality as illness was predicated on cultural bias rather than any actual pathology.  (Nov 19, 2014 | post #84)

Study Suggests But Doesn't Prove Genetic Link to Male Hom...

Hon that's what I was getting from your response....but the fact is that there are some real endemic problems in our community in terms of behavior towards ourselves and others and it has been a direct response to the conditions we have socially lived under, and as we find more social acceptance, as we are allowed to mainstream our lives and relationships the rates of these dysfunctional responses drop. You cannot put a group of people under the worst possible conditions and expect, with rare exception, the best possible response to them. In my work incarnation I was a narrative therapist, have sat on sex offender review boards and dealt with their victims, been a court advocate for minors-have been a victim of many and varied types of abuse and dealt with victims of many and varied abuse, seen so many acting out behaviors as a result of their trauma as well as my own. When it comes to gays and lesbians, of which you probably figured out I am one, it seems always this implied "blame the victim" vindication, as if the fact of one's sexual orientation if the blame and not one's family's or society's response to it. SOOO just wanted to add some clarity. If that's not what you meant to imply, okay; regardless seemed like a good soapbox moment.  (Nov 18, 2014 | post #43)
