Discrimination against LGBTI people must end


This page in:

To end poverty, we must address all forms of discrimination, including bias based on sexual orientation and gender identity. On the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, I want to emphasize how crucial it is to fight prejudice and knock down barriers to education, jobs, social protection and good health faced by many people in the LGBTI community. When many among us cannot live up to our full potential, we all lose. Watch my video blog to learn more:

Where is the discrimination you speak of? I see a bunch of freaking parades. Its really funny how a bunch of people can just claim to be oppressed for protected status without any regard for a personal preference. If sex education did not encourage masterbation and birth control along with social policies that turn the state against men upon the whimsical emotion of a woman. It is a poor sign of the times that national leaders are becoming younger and younger even as the population becomes stupider and stupider. We may think progress is collectivist attitude, but this "progress" is descending man into the animal kingdom. Man as an individual represents his true potential, in a collective mob he becomes wickedness incarnate.
