“Have You Considered Your Parents’ Happiness?”Conversion Therapy Ag...
"Homosexuality is neither a crime nor officially regarded as an illness in China. For decades, the legal status of consensual same-sex activity between men was ambiguous, but that was cleared up in the revised criminal code of 1997. In 2001, the Chinese Society of Psychiatry removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders. This is consistent with the consensus of global medical associations that homosexuality is not a medical condition."
However! There is always a however!
"public hospitals and private clinics in China continue to offer so-called 'conversion therapy,' which aims to change an individual’s sexual orientation from homosexual or bisexual to heterosexual, based on the false assumption that homosexuality is a disorder that needs to be remedied. "
"Chinese authorities have not taken the necessary steps to stop public hospitals or private clinics from offering conversion therapy."
Does anyone know what the cost of "conversion therapy?" I didn't find figures in a quick glance at the references. Certainly, a profit motive must be involved in the continuing practice.
Daniel, I hate to say it, but I agree on the Roy Moore issue. There are enough bigoted Alabama voters out there to put him in the Senate. The question becomes: what do Mitch McConnell & Co. do with him when he gets there? They've already come out in opposition to his candidacy. Is that all talk, or is there something in the chamber besides gunpowder?
Australians Say ‘Yes’ to Same-Sex Marriage, Clearing Path for Legalization
I wonder if Judge Roy has sex with donkeys? His morals fit the question.
Damage the image of the party? Hell, at this point (to quote a friend) the Republicans put this kind of shit on their resumes. As long as it wasn't a boy or a scrofulous long-haired dachsund, righteous Judge Roy gets a free ride (so to speak).
Carl, I agree, "They (Republicans) want him gone so he doesn't damage the image of the party even more than he already has before these sexual allegations were even made."
It will be interesting to watch that vote; if he is voted in with the mounting bits of claims against him, we may be able to assume that religion trumps morals. My goodness, those three words have many meanings, especially when used together.
It will be a while before the allegations run their legal course. My hope is that young girls and their mothers go immediately to the police and file a report. That way, the incident will be recorded. It is like family violence, it is important to file a report at once, and keep a journal about the outcome. It may be of help in future situations.
If an adult man sexually mistreats a child, boy or girl, the past history reveals a sad reality of not believing the child and or hiding the crime. Years later, the child may reveal what happened to him or her and many ask, "Why wait so long to report it?" If one ever worked in a sexual abuse unit, that person knows why reports are not made.
Several Republicans have come forward publicly stating that Roy Moore should end his campaign. I find this rather interesting. Usually there's silence or a lot of hesitation in jumping to conclusions on mere allegations when one's own political party is involved. My theory is that most Republicans would concede that Roy Moore is far too bat-shit crazy and off-the-deep-end right-wing even for them. They want him gone so he doesn't damage the image of the party even more than he already has before these sexual allegations were even made.
Love the sin, hate the sinner!
