Can't Teach Old Dogs...

From a parent recounting what he was told he heard from our esteemed Mayor's mouth today in front of high school students:
The mayor of Troy told my daughter this afternoon that she wants to bring in a panel of psychologists to explain to the high school's Gay-Straight Alliance that homosexuality is a mental disease.
The encounter was allegedly being taped by a documentary film-maker.

Is it true? We don't have the film yet to prove it. But we certainly hope not.

  1. I pray that isn't true, but if it is, the Mayor's first scandal will pale in comparison to this one.

  2. Also, if she can find a "psychologist" that promotes that idea, I'd really question their credentials.

    Quick pull from Wikipedia:
    "In 1973, the American Psychiatric Association declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder. The American Psychological Association Council of Representatives followed in 1975.[3] Consequently, while some still believe homosexuality is a mental disorder, the current research and clinical literature now only demonstrate that same-sex sexual and romantic attractions, feelings, and behaviors are normal and positive variations of human sexuality, reflecting the official positions of the American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association."

  3. The next firestorm begins now.

    This woman is dumber than a bag of rocks.

    Her lack of judgment is stunning--I'd wager the average Troy 9th grader has more sense and understanding of the world than she does.
