Disney Must Include Ex-Gays in Diversity Training

Wait aren’t ex-gays now straight? Or “cured” or whatever heck the ex-gay movement shovels? So why are they a special protcted class now? At any rate

The Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) has directed the Walt Disney Company to accept a shareholder resolution requesting the inclusion of ex-gays in Disney’s sexual orientation policies and corporate diversity programs.

Regina Griggs, executive director of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX) said

Like many corporations, Disney implements mandatory diversity training for employees that emphasizes gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgenders, but fails to include ex-gays. It is a serious omission both for the ex-gay community and their supporters.

Employees who support the ex-gay community are not welcomed to express their views and fear they would be forced to undergo sensitivity training because they support former homosexuals.

Okay, here’s the kicker:

Ex-gays are forced to remain closeted because they are not protected by diversity policies and are subjected to open disapproval by others in the workplace. The inclusion of ex-gays will cost Disney nothing to implement and would provide true diversity and respect in the workplace.

Who walks around the workplace declaring they are an ex-gay unless they are proselytizing for that ideology? And again, aren’t ex-gays straight?

The SEC decision is based on recent Superior Court of the District of Coumbia ruling in lawsuit brought by PFOX

The Court ruled that former homosexuals are a protected class that must be recognized under D.C.’s sexual orientation non-discrimination laws. The Court held that sexual orientation does not require immutable characteristics.
