File this under Theater of the Sexually Absurd: the prayerful cranks at Exodus have made up their own version of PFLAG. They're using this alleged "PFOX" group to pull a PR stunt: claiming that Disney's gay-friendly policies discriminate against so-called ex-gays. Another cynical right-wing ploy to garner media attention and distract the public from dialogues about gay rights.
Every time I hear the term "ex-gay" I think about Monty Python's ex-parrot. Ex my ass. You can't cure something that wasn't a disease in the first place
A controversial group is asking Walt Disney Co. (DIS) shareholders to vote for a proposal to adopt non-discrimination language against "ex-gays" at the company's annual meeting in March. Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays, or PFOX, says Disney's exclusion of "ex-gay" language from the company's employment policies and diversity training discriminates against those who choose to "leave" homosexuality, according to a preliminary filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
PFOX says Disney's policies supports gays, lesbians, and bisexuals but excludes support of ex-gays. The Group says the addendum is necessary because "ex-gays and their supporters are subject to an increasingly hostile environment because they live out or support a different view of homosexuality," according to the filing.
