MDA (media development authority) decided to ban this Jolin Tsai (she is known to many as the Madonna of mandarin pop) song because the lyrics encourage the pursuit of equal rights of marriage for the LGBTI community, which conflicts with the laws in Singapore. 190 more words
A legitimate interest in the private behavior of a doctor should be limited to behaviors that have a legitimate impact on that doctor's capacity to work. Though it is pretended that these programs are being maintained for the benefit of doctors and the public it is apparent that they only serve to injure both. The Federation of State Physician Health Programs (FSPHP) is following the same pattern they have with the “impaired” and “disruptive” physician constructs to discriminate and control with ignorance, bigotry, intolerance and stupidity. The targeting of gay, lesbian or transgender doctors for what they do in their private lives is predictable. One doctor told me that the state PHP told him that if he did not cooperate in addition to losing his medical license the state medical board would make his sexual history part of the public record. The civil and human rights violations remain hidden. The crimes remain hidden. So too will this. More sheep for the slaughter. It is an inevitable part of this well oiled slope of coercion, control, obedience and abuse. The import of this can not be overestimated.
