Gay Leaders Swing Brickbats Over Study On Switch Hitters
By : Wayne Besen - Tuesday July 12, 2005
by Wayne Besen Certainly no one is suggesting the "B" come out of the GLBT movement, but a new study by a group of researchers in Chicago and Toronto questions how widespread bisexuality is in men and shows a need for more comprehensive studies to examine the topic. The controversial experiment recruited 101 young men from ads placed in gay and alternative newspapers, with 33 identifying as bisexual, 30 as heterosexual and 38 as gay. The psychologists had the men rate their desires from (...)

Criticizing Patriot Act Lands Manlin Chee, Asian American Lawyer, in Jail
By : asian week - Tuesday July 12, 2005
Having spent almost three decades offering legal service to immigrants, Chinese American immigration attorney Manlin Chee is now getting used to serving time instead. Chee had been a nationally recognized lawyer for her work with immigrants, some of it pro bono, and much of it for Muslims, but things soured for her soon after she appeared on a panel discussing the PATRIOT Act in March 2003. The public forum at the main library in Greensboro, North Carolina was televised and attracted a (...)

The Reality Of This Barbaric Bombing
By : Robert Fisk - Tuesday July 12, 2005
The Reality Of This Barbaric Bombing Robert Fisk July 8, 2005 [last updated 14:32] From The Independent “If you bomb our cities,” Osama bin Laden said in one of his recent video tapes, “we will bomb yours.” There you go, as they say. It was crystal clear Britain would be a target ever since Tony Blair decided to join George Bush’s “war on terror” and his invasion of Iraq. We had, as they say, been warned. The G8 summit was obviously chosen, (...)

Crying ’anti-Americanism’: Fox News speaks up for the poor, downtrodden white male
By : Sean Gonsalves - Monday July 11, 2005
1 comment
"Special interest groups" is a phrase that conservative pundits use to describe various advocacy groups that, when added all together, constitute the majority of Americans. Though it may be unintentional, it’s a classic example of divide-and-conquer. African-American advocacy groups? No, special interest groups, coded language that really means "those minorities are trying to impose their narrow and selfish agenda on the majority, which is obviously wrong because in a democracy, (...)

Visibility Is Victory

by Wayne Besen A few weeks ago, I wrote a controversial column, "Losing the Battle", which sounded the alarm that the GLBT movement is going backwards. This remains indisputably true on a political level, as our sworn enemies are increasingly sworn into office. Each morning we rise, we live the long nightmare of George W. Bush, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-TN., and House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-TX. Nonetheless, I still remain hopeful as our community progresses in this most (...)

A Compromise that Leaves Gay People In a Compromised Position
By : Wayne Besen - Tuesday May 31, 2005
by Wayne Besen For the good of the country, it was wise for Senators to strike a compromise on the filibuster of judicial nominees. They temporarily averted a catastrophe and avoided setting a dangerous precedent. However, it is clear by the statements of many leading right wing Senators that this may be more of a transitory deferral than a true deal. The real test will come when Bush eventually nominates an extremist to the Supreme Court. Here is a snapshot of how the GLBT Community and (...)

Blood In The Water
By : Wayne Besen - Sunday May 8, 2005
by Wayne Besen "The blood is in the water." With these Soprano-like words, the right wing’s most fearsome sharks circled Magellan Health Services. Like Microsoft, only a week earlier, the ruthless killing machines quickly devoured the nation’s leading behavioral health company. Magellan was easy prey and surrendered to the savage attack so quickly, the Jaws music barely hit its first note. Let me explain. In March, Dr. Warren Throckmorton, who recently produced a video on (...)

RAXEN Focal Point for ITALY de Annamaria Rivera Collaboration: Paola Andrisani EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The present report, like the former Analytical Study on discrimination and racist violence (2000-2002) is based on the theoretical supposition that “races” do not exist but rather human groups which are “racialised”, that is, socially considered and treated as “races”1. In our opinion, racism is part of a process of social classification so that some (...)

An Openly Gay Communist Wins in Southern Italy

An openly gay candidate of Partito della Rifondazione Comunista wins in southern Italy, in regional elections that resulted in 11 victories for the center-left coalition, which now controls 16 of Italy’s 20 regions. Nichi Vendola’s victory decisively refutes the American dogma that militants on the left, choosing radicals, can’t attract votes at the center and lose to the right — the dogma that the Democrats in America and the center-left in Italy promulgate, even (...)

By Leonie Lamont The defence contractor Boeing has won the right in NSW to discriminate against employees whose nationalities do not meet US security requirements. A three-year exemption from the anti-discrimination act allows Boeing to exclude employees at its Bankstown plant from working on projects using US technology. Only Australians and other nationalities approved by the US will be issued tags granting them security clearance. The State Government quietly granted the exemption in (...)

by Pat Denino Two amendments against gays. Not one, but two amendments to the Texas constitution are being considered. I’m impressed! You guys must have some legislators really scared! HJR 6 would ban marriage for gay and lesbian couples. HJR 19 would not only ban marriage for gay and lesbian couples, but would also prohibit civil unions and domestic partnerships. It has the potential of nullifying legal contracts, such as a will or a power of attorney. These two idiot (...)

AMERICA’S MOST POWERFUL WEAPON
By : Malcom Lagauche - Wednesday March 9, 2005
15 comments
Forget nukes. Forget laser-guided missiles. Forget cluster bombs. The most powerful weapon in the U.S. arsenal is xenophobia. This ugly trait is possessed by the majority of U.S. citizens and is widely practiced. You may ask how a thought process could be more devastating than the hardware the U.S. has used in killing foreigners in genocidal proportions. Xenophobia allows the U.S. government to venture into foreign realms for the purpose of annihilating the people without question by the (...)

Activist Angela Davis Urges Examination of "New Racisms" at Vanderbilt Lecture
By : Anna Thompson - Friday February 25, 2005

by Anna Thompson Racism is not static. The racism we encountered in the civil rights era is not the same racism we encounter today. Now most people recognize it is not acceptable to explicitly support white supremacy, that is not to say they do not support it implicitly. The point I want to make is that just because the law no longer provides for the overt expression of racism does not mean that racism is not a major factor in our contemporary lives. I remember in the 60’s I was (...)

Previous readers know I can be a little, well, uh...rough on the Bushies, for lack of a better term (like, say, “unapologetically brutal”). That’s OK; I’ve never had a problem calling a spade a spade, or, for that matter, a scoundrel a scoundrel. Typically, though, as a matter of personal preference, I’ve pretty much tried to stay away from using vulgar or shocking language. Since November 2, however, some may have noticed I’ve not shied away from (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
