I fail to understand how loving someone of your own gender would automatically lead to wanting sex with children and animals. How does one make that leap????
WASHINGTON — Change.org deleted a petition on Monday created by a user in Chennai, India, to rally support for the country’s recently upheld sodomy ban, known as Section 377, because of concerns over hate speech.
“STOP the assault on Indian culture in the name of love! PROTECT the family system!” began the petition created by a user named Savitha Rajesh, which had around 2,500 signatures on Monday morning U.S. time. The petition included numerous links to studies by widely discredited researchers claiming homosexuality is a mental illness and causes health problems ranging from sexually transmitted infections to “Gay Bowel Syndrome” because of sexual practices including “Oral sex, Rectal sex, Fecal sex, and Urine sex.”
Change.org pulled down the petition by mid-afternoon, after it was repeatedly flagged by other users as inappropriate.
“We did remove the petition because it violated our community guidelines in relation to hate speech,” said Brianna Cayo-Cotter, Change.org’s managing director of communications. “Change.org is an open platform and rarely removes petitions but, like other prominent online platforms, we do remove content which includes hate speech and the incitement of violence. We consider hate speech to be the advocacy of beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people based on their class, veteran status, gender identity, or immutable characteristics (race, ethnic origin, color, national origin, religion, disability, sex, age, sexual orientation).
