Last week, we were glad to learn that, considering the bill prohibiting same-sex marriage was not going to go to the 2014 ballot in Indiana, same-sex couples had then gone on the offensive and had launched a challenge to try to legalize the equal marriage. A few days later, four other challenges were launched in Indiana!

Day-of-Silence

 

 

Amber Hatcher, a 16-year-old lesbian, student in the state of Florida, wanted to observe the National Day of Silence which took place on April 20 and which is a campaign organized by the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network’s (GLSEN) for increasing students-and-teachers' awareness of anti-LGBT bullying and harassment in schools

 

The principle is simple: to remain silent during a day to call attention to the silencing effect of bullying.

 

So Amber, wishing to observe this campaign last April within her school, had required the permission of the her school principal Shannon Fusco who immediately threatened her with "ramifications"

Lesbian divorces are not always equal to straight ones especially concerning the parental rights. A lesbian in Ohio lost the battle and was not considered as the second mother of the biological girl of her ex-partner and of course, as always, nobody thought about the child.
