USSR-baby-anti-gay-vaccineAs ridiculous as it may sound — thinking being gay is something that can or should be cured — Russian scientists claim cure to homosexuality.

Novosibirsk| Dr. Dimitri Yusrokov Slamini of the Russian Institute for Medical Science in Novosibirsk and his team of researchers have discovered what they claim to be a new vaccine which could prevent early symptoms and even cure humans from homosexuality, if treated at a young age.

Russian scientists developed the so-called "antidote" based on a 1959 scientific research published under the title “Organizing action of prenatally administered testosterone propionate on the tissues mediating mating behavior in the female guinea pig” by Charles H. Phoenix, an american researcher. The study concluded that ”INAH [part of the hypothalamus] is dimorphic with sexual orientation, at least in men, and suggests that sexual orientation has a biological substrate”.

Xenoestrogen are a type of estrogen mimickers found in synthetic or natural chemical compounds. Synthetic xenoestrogens such as PCB’s, BPA and phthalates have been also been found to have estrogenic effects on living organisms and to disrupt the endocrine system» explains Dr. Yuri Krutchev, who took part in the experiment. «Injecting specific quantities of testosterone helps to unset this artificial biological unbalance which occurs mostly in part because of environmental pollution and an excess of estrogen mimickers in our modern environment» he adds.

Why would anyone think gay people needed to be cured when it's perfectly natural.

The new discovery has attracted much criticism from lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) organizations around the Globe, yet a few country leaders have outspokenly showed support and interest for the research. Iran, China and Saudi Arabia have been the first countries to show interest in the new discovery.

American and European researchers have expressed much skepticism upon receiving the news.

Gay Marriage Now Legal in Pennsylvania Print E-mail

USA-gaymarriage-Pennsylvania

A federal judge on Tuesday struck down Pennsylvania’s same-sex marriage ban, one day after a judge in Oregon did the same.

“We now join the twelve federal district courts across the country which, when confronted with these inequities in their own states, have concluded that all couples deserve equal dignity in the realm of civil marriage,” U.S. District Court Judge John E. Jones III writes in his decision.

USA- gaymarriage-map-may2014

Pennsylvania’s law, passed in 1996 by Republican Gov. Tom Ridge, defined marriage as "a civil contract by which one man and one woman take each other for husband and wife.” Jones reportedly found the ban violates both the Due Process and Equal Protection clauses of the 14th Amendment after 11 gay and lesbian couples came together to challenge the court on their right to marry.

"We are better people than what these laws represent, and it is time to discard them onto the ash heap of history," the judge said.

Here's how the ACLU, which filed the lawsuit, explains the case:

The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania, the American Civil Liberties Union, and volunteer counsel from the law firm of Hangley Aronchick Segal Pudlin & Schiller filed a federal lawsuit on July 9, 2013, on behalf of 21 Pennsylvanians who wish to marry in Pennsylvania or want the commonwealth to recognize their out-of-state marriages.

The lawsuit alleges that Pennsylvania's Defense of Marriage Act and refusal to marry lesbian and gay couples or recognize their out-of-state marriages violates the fundamental right to marry as well as the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. This lawsuit comes in the wake of the ACLU's victory before the U.S. Supreme Court in U.S. v. Windsor, which requires federal recognition for lesbian and gay couples who are married in their home states. Plaintiffs argue that the court should closely scrutinize this discriminatory treatment because the state's Defense of Marriage Act burdens the fundamental right to marry and because it discriminates based on sex and sexual orientation.

Shortly after the decision, which is embedded in full below, Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane expressed her support for Jones.

India’s LGBTI Community: Don’t vote for the anti-gay BJP Print E-mail

While the incumbent Congress Party, fledgling Aam Aadmi Party and even the Communist Party of India have all come out in favor of gay rights, the Bharatiya Janata Party has not made its position clear, enraging the LGBT community of the world's largest democracy.

India’s LGBT community is calling on members to come together during national elections to try to defeat the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). LGBT activists say the Hindu nationalist party, which is expected to give a strong performance in the polls, has failed to take a clear position on LGBT rights, while some of its members have made statements openly denouncing homosexuality. “In the absence of any clarification from the party, we will assume that they are not supporting gay rights,” says Shaleen Rakesh, a gay rights activist and director of the India HIV/AIDS Alliance.

Some people’s minds may already be made up. In a recent survey of LGBT Indians and their supporters conducted by Humsafar Trust, a Mumbai-based organization, most said they planned to vote for Congress (45.17%), followed by AAP (41.07%). Only 13.76% of respondents said they planned to vote for the BJP.

Gay rights in India came into the national spotlight in December, when the Supreme Court upheld Section 377 of the Indian penal code, which criminalizes gay sex. The colonial law had been ruled unconstitutional by the New Delhi High Court in 2009 in a decision that was celebrated by human rights groups worldwide. But last year the apex court overturned the ruling, reinstating the law and effectively passing the buck to Parliament to decide on its constitutionality.

US : Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich shown the door Print E-mail
News - World News
Written by sfgate.com   
Saturday, 12 April 2014 11:46

Brendan-EichWhen Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich (pictured) was shown the door after being outed for giving $1,000 to Proposition 8's campaign to ban same-sex marriage in California, it was a turning point for both the gay rights movement and for Silicon Valley.

Even before Eich, co-founder of Mozilla and a top name in the tech world, resigned last week after a few days in the position - in the face of boycott threats against his company's Firefox Web browser - his opponents were under attack by conservatives and even some in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community for conducting a "witch hunt" against someone with whom they disagreed.

"It is the new McCarthyism," said Howard Epstein, a San Francisco Republican activist. "If you donate, they will come after you."

But for tech companies like Mozilla, which rely on a growing base of mainstream consumers, criticism over Eich's donation to the 2008 campaign is a warning that the inbred network of Silicon Valley has to change its way of doing political business.

"If you're a chipset manufacturer with just five huge customers ... you can have something going on in the back and no one will ever see it," said Wade Randlett, a longtime technology entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. "But folks who work for a fundamentally public-facing company need to understand that there is now no such thing as a safe, private position when you're in the public view."

The crackling speed with which the controversy over Eich's donation went nationwide also shows just how fast fortunes can turn in a wired world.

Complaints began

Eich was one of about 70,000 people who gave money to the Prop. 8 campaign, and for years nothing came of it. But almost as soon as it was announced March 24 that he was being promoted from chief technology officer to Mozilla's top job, complaints about the contribution started to roll in.

Within days, OkCupid, an online dating service, suggested that users dump Firefox and conveniently provided links to such competing browsers as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Opera and Safari.

Eich resisted suggestions that he apologize for supporting Prop. 8, but he resigned April 3, saying, "Under the present circumstances, I cannot be an effective leader."

Mozilla officials said they tried to persuade Eich to stay and insisted that fewer than 10 of the company's 1,000 employees had called for his resignation in Twitter feeds or e-mails. However, in announcing his departure, the company said people are "hurt and angry" over the controversy and that it showed that "we haven't stayed true to ourselves."

Mozilla's underdog position in the intensely competitive Web browser business probably had company officials looking for a quick end to the controversy, Randlett said.

"This is not like in the '70s, when if your phone company made contributions to people you despised, what could you do?" Randlett said. "These (complaints) were coming from people who can change their browsers in a couple of seconds, with basically zero transaction cost."

Others, however, saw the Eich affair as a betrayal of the code of freedom that built Silicon Valley.

"The valley demands openness, but the first time they come across someone they disagree with, they crucify him," said Vivek Wadhwa, a fellow at Stanford University's Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Center for Corporate Governance.

Tim Cook supports Sexual Orientation Non-discrimination Act Print E-mail

Apple's Tim Cook encourages US House to pass sexual orientation nondiscrimination act.

Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook took to Twitter on Friday to again express his support for the Employee Non-Discrimination Act, a proposed bill that would make it illegal for companies to discriminate in hiring based on gender identity or sexual orientation.

tim-cook-tweet

The act, dubbed ENDA, has been presented to Congress since 1994, but has yet to pass into law. Cook said on Friday that he believes the U.S. House of Representatives should mark the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, signed into law by then-President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964, by finally passing ENDA after 20 years.

Tagged in Cook's post were Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor, and Democratic Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer.

In a separate post, Cook quoted the iconic protest song of the American Civil Rights Movement, "We Shall Overcome." He also shared a picture of Johnson signing the Civil Rights Act while Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. looked on.

"Reflecting on the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act," Cook wrote. "Much done but much left to do."

Cook's support of ENDA has been well publicized before, as the CEO penned an editorial in The Wall Street Journal last November urging U.S. senators to pass the act — which it did, in a 64 to 32 vote. The bill has not yet gone up for a vote in the House.

ENDA would prohibit most employers from discriminating in hiring based on a person's sexual orientation or gender identity. In addition to official passage through the U.S. Senate, the bill has also been given public support by President Barack Obama.

Germany opens lesbian-only cemetery Print E-mail

Berlin: What may be Europe's first lesbian-only burial place has opened in a forested Christian Lutheran graveyard in the German capital.

The final resting place will give gay women a place to share in the afterlife, said Astrid Osterland of Safia, an association primarily for elderly lesbians.

The burial ground is part of the 200-year-old Georgen Parochial cemetery in Prenzlauer Berg, a district in the east of the once-divided city near Alexanderplatz square.

"The idea emerged four years ago in the lesbian group Safia, whose members, advancing in age, asked themselves where they want to be buried," said Ms Osterland, 69.

"We wanted to stay together, to be close to those with whom we lived, we loved, we worked, we fought," she told AFP, adding that she has already reserved a burial plot for herself.

The 400-square-metre section of the cemetery, newly landscaped with a winding sand path, has space for 80 bodies or urns containing cremated ashes.

"We had surveyed several cemeteries, but we decided on this one because we knew it and we knew it was beautiful," Ms Osterland said about he project, financed by the women's housing association Sappho.

Ms Osterland granted that "this idea may seem exotic" but stressed that "it is not a fight against men".

"There will be no barrier to demarcate it and all those who want to come and honour the dead with respect are welcome," she said.

Safia in a congratulatory message on Sunday hailed the opening of "what may be Europe's first lesbian cemetery" as a "historic" occasion - a term one speaker corrected to "her-storic".

"Now there's another reason for a journey to Berlin, even if it may be your last," the group added.

Deputy Prime Minister orders rainbow flag to be flown from Whitehall to celebrate first same-sex weddings.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has ordered the rainbow flag to be flown at Whitehall in order to mark the historic arrival of equal marriage in England and Wales this weekend, PinkNews has revealed.

On Saturday 29 March, the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act for England and Wales comes into force. Scores of same-sex weddings will take place at the stroke of midnight.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg told PinkNews.co.uk: “As all the same-sex couples make their vows this weekend, they will be making history.

“Finally, after years of campaigning, any couple who wants to get married can get married. Together we’ve made our country a place where we celebrate love equally, gay or straight – and for that reason we should all be raising a glass.

“Raising the rainbow flag on Whitehall is a small symbol to celebrate a massive achievement. I want to wish everyone getting married this weekend the very best of luck, on what is a truly momentous occasion.”

The decision was made jointly with the support of Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude.

He said: “It’s great that from this Saturday all couples across England and Wales will be able to celebrate their commitment by getting married. To mark this, the Cabinet Office will be flying the rainbow flag this weekend.”
