If Chick-Fil-A is attempting to quell its argument with the gay community, gaining the support of a man who compared being gay to having sex with corpses isn't a smart move.

The prize for the most wayward of all the DSM 5 work groups must surely go to the sexual disorders group -- creators of three remarkably off-beat proposals.

If You Could Predict a Rape, Would You Stop It?

According to the current standards, "Past offenses alone cannot show whether someone is mentally ill or likely to commit new crimes." Only when it comes to molesting children this is patently false.

Child, Please!

Ever since Jerry Sandusky's arrest, the scandal has become a cause célèbre for right-wing extremists, who are practically tripping over each other in the stampede to place the blame in the hands of the gay community.

Andrea Bonior | Posted 01.22.2012 | Crime

Why Penn State's Sandusky Isn't A Grown Up

Delia Lloyd | Posted 01.15.2012 | Sports
Delia Lloyd

To my mind, Jerry Sandusky's crime wasn't being sexually attracted to young boys. I'm willing to believe that he couldn't change that about himself. His crime was allowing himself to be in a physical space that allowed him to act upon those urges.

Kelly Cogswell | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Kelly Cogswell

Already in sports forums online, commenters are once again busy conflating homosexuality with pedophilia. And the circle of guilt and blame will be offloaded -- again -- onto us queers, homos, fags (words invoked hatefully, with a slightly curled lip).

Jim Wallis | Posted 01.15.2012 | Sports
