"Gay" in the News: Not Far From the Tree
Now Chelsea Clinton follows proudly in her father's footsteps, to become an advocate for "federal equality" in sexuality. News coverage reports that throughout her speech for the Human Rights Council, Clinton referenced a report by the Human Rights Campaign, “Growing Up LGBT in America.” The report supposedly interviewed 10,000 LGBT-identified youth between the ages 13 and 17. The survey reports that 68 percent actually heard elected officials make negative comments about being LGBT. Can you imagine - someone heard a discouraging word.
Clinton asserted that the implementation of federal laws that attempt to enforce "equality" are not an indication of success. What the issue requires is apparently a full force of politically-correct thought police, ever vigilant on the watch against harsh language. And rest assured that it all depends on what "is" is.
I keep trying to convince myself that what I read in the news media is ever biased concerning these issues. Journalists appear to be largely sympathetic with "gay" issues, thus a particular editorial bigotry is evident. But this news is representative of current events in the world. If that is not troubling and concerning you, you may be on another planet.
