I thought the medical community was completely compliant with the healthy homosexuality message. Now I’m not so sure.
NBC Los Angeles reports:
A Los Angeles man is suing his doctor and a Southern California healthcare network, saying they ignored his request to remove a notation describing “homosexual behavior” as a “chronic problem” on his medical records.
Matthew Moore, 46, who is openly gay, said he was shocked to see his sexual orientation still described as a chronic condition more than a year after he complained about the use of the archaic medical classification.
“It was infuriating. It was painful,” he said of his decision to sue. “It was another attempt by this doctor and this medical group to impose their agenda of discrimination and hate onto a gay patient.”
I’m shocked too. And a little bit more hopeful than I was before I read this story—though I think the healthcare provider should have found some other way to record the very relevant medical fact that Moore was a practicing homosexual.
Just so we’re clear. Right now experts around the world think that every single male homosexual should take a pill a day for life. But it is a completely healthy lifestyle, right? Sure it is.
Any doctor who didn’t track such a massively health-impacting fact as a patient’s regular homosexual practice would be negligent to the patient.
