Think Progress: Obama Administration Finalizes LGBT-Friendly Hospital Policy
Quote:The Department of Health & Human Services has finalized new policy on hospital visitation rights for same-sex couples. According to a memo released today, hospitals that receive Medicare and Medicaid funds must allow patients to designate their own visitors as well as who can make emergency medical decisions, including same-sex partners. The Health Resources & Services Administration will also announce a $248,000 grant to help train community health centers on how to better serve LGBT populations.

It's a nice initiative. Considering the funding, with the relatively small amount of money, that's pretty much a drop in the pond that is more symbolic than likely to be effective.
When a subject is highly controversial — and any question about sex is that — one cannot hope to tell the truth. One can only show how one came to hold whatever opinion one does hold. One can only give one's audience the chance of drawing their own conclusions as they observe the limitations, the prejudices, the idiosyncrasies of the speaker.

hopefully this is a step towards acceptance, tolerance, and equality.
Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: 
''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!
