Likewise, there's been a change in just exactly what is considered name calling, partly from the chosen name change among gays, and partly from forced acceptance of them and their lifestyle.
A court says it's no longer slander in New York to falsely call someone gay.
A mid-level appeals court on Thursday wiped out decades of rulings, including its own, to say that society no longer treats false comments that someone is gay, lesbian or bisexual as defamation. Without defamation, there is no longer slander, the court ruled.
"These appellate division decisions are inconsistent with current public policy and should no longer be followed," stated the unanimous decision written by Justice Thomas Mercure of the Appellate Division's Third Department based in Albany. While the decision sets new case law in New York now, it could still go to a definitive ruling by the state's highest court, the Court of Appeals.
The New York decision finds that the comment is now "based on a false premise that it is shameful and disgraceful to be described as lesbian, gay or bisexual.".
This, in my opinion, is absolutely MARVELOUS news. Because right after it's no longer shameful and disgraceful, it's also NOT protected, in any way either, to BE gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer or to smoke meat nor to munch carpet!
Here's hoping every company in the country sights this as a case for throwing out all the Mandatory Gay Rights crap 'ola they now feel compelled to do. I guess they GLAAD folks have done their job. They wanted equality, well now they gotten it. According to the State of NY, it's just as normal to be gay as it is to be white, tall, or from Paramus!
From one breeder to all you others, I'm ROFLMFAO!!!
