  1. When will America learn ……….

    Are these opponents even human or can we just call them Nazis? Last time we had this kind of stuff on a grand scale in Europe Adolf Hitler and his gang were running the show, dehumanising certain groups of people who later got ‘special treatment’.

    Human rights for human beings, it should be that simple! There shouldn’t even have to be a thing called anti-discrimination protection.

    I do not know how my American trans sisters and brothers and LGB cousins can live in a country that can do such thing to them. The measure of a good democracy should be how those considered the least and weakest in society are protected and treated.

    This is like prop8 but much worse.

  4. As a gay American born citizen (from Florida), I had to move to the UK just to legally stay with my British partner. With no “unmarried partner” visas and ancient discriminatory laws, my partner cannot get a visa… Yet! There is new legislation in the works under the Obama administration in support of the LGBT community. Cross you fingers.

  5. AGAIN THE RIGHT WING RELIGIOUS CHARLATANS ARE AT WORK. Through Fear and Deception Religion Legislates and Legalized Discrimination and prevents Legislation that would give Equal Rights Protection.

  6. How stupid can you get? Studies have shown time and again that almost 98 % of all sexual abuse committed on children is caused by heterosexual men. Toilets should not be divided – they should be uni-sexual. I say one toilet for all. As a man, I use the toilet (WC)that is available, I don’t give a rat’s ass whether a man or a woman went before me, my biggest concern is that the WC be left clean! Let’s not mix issues with non-issues.
    The “Members of Citizens for Good Public Policy”, are ignorant people, using fear tactics – but as always you must dialogue with them – do not give in to them – give support to human rights – support the LGBT community, even if it’s only an email!
