Norfolk residents Tim Bostic and Tony London, whose lawsuit against Circuit Court Clerk George Schaefer was the impetus of the legalization of same-sex marriage in Virginia, was the first gay couple in the city to receive a marriage license. The lengthy and controversial court battle culminated with the Supreme Court's rejection to hear appeals on gay-marriage rulings in the Commonwealth and four other states. Bostic and London will speak with Pilot Radio live Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 3 p.m. about their journey to the historic moment.
Welcome to the Seriouside of the jril show. This morning, we will be discussing the following topics:
SEGMENT 1: THEY FOUGHT THE GOOD FIGHT
With more and more states acknowledging same sex marriages, Republicans have been unusually quiet as of late. What does this mean? Have they finally accepted a person’s right to love whomever they want?
SEGMENT 2: TIME FOR A CHANGE?
In a democracy, every citizen should have the right to vote, but if you are a felon, your right to vote is either denied completely or restricted. Is it time for a change?
SEGMENT 3: THE RIGHT TO VOTE
In 2000 despite winning the popular vote, Al Gore lost to George W. Bush mainly due to the non sense that happened in Florida. The Electoral College officially elects the POTUS & VPOTUS, but critics argue that the system gives certain states aka “swing states” an unfair advantage. Is it time to do away with this out of date system?
The Supreme Court effectively made same sex marriage legal in 11 additional states, Couples in these states should soon be able to obtain marriage licenses and be legally wed. This decision immediately became the most talked about topic on Facebook and shot to the top of trending topics in the U.S. on Twitter. Today, we have Dr. Stephen Fitzgerald, PhD, to discuss this landmark decision.
Gay unions are now legal in a total of 30 states, plus the District of Columbia--that is more than 60% of the population.
Tomorrow's show, we will go inside the gay community to get their perspective. http://www.tobtr.com/s/6985895
Huge news on marriage equality via SCOTUS. Thke Supremes will not hear five states' pleas to uphold their SSM bans rejected by federal courts. In another district, six more states' hopes for the same were likely dashed by the news.
GLAD's legal head and interim executive director, Gary Buseck, joins us to discuss the short-, mid- and long-term meaning. He has his Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders were active in the Utah appeal. GLAD had led in the equality efforts from the beginning.
Even if all 11 states allow SSMs, another 19 or 20 have dug in. What's next?
Most research studies show that children with two moms or two dads fare just as well as children with heterosexual parents. In fact, one comprehensive study of children raised by lesbian mothers or gay fathers concluded that children raised by same-sex parents did not differ from other children in terms of emotional functioning, sexual orientation, stigmatization, gender role behavior, behavioral adjustment, gender identity, learning and grade point averages. Where research differences have been found, they have sometimes favored same-sex parents. For example, adolescents with same-sex parents reported feeling more connected at school. Another study reported that children in gay and lesbian households are more likely to talk about emotionally difficult topics, and they are often more resilient, compassionate and tolerant. The same concerns that face many heterosexual parents when they are deciding to have children also face same-sex parents including time, money, and responsibilities of parenthood. Likewise, many of the parenting tasks faced by same-sex parents are similar to those faced by heterosexual parents, such as providing appropriate structure for children, while also being warm and accepting, setting limits, teaching open and honest communication, healthy conflict resolution, and monitoring of child’s peer network and extracurricular activities. Some differences may include adapting to different types of family forms, the impact of social stigma on the family, and dealing with extended family members who may not be supportive of same-sex parenting.
