(March 2, 2010) There's been a push for some time to add homosexuality to the list of "protected classes"--that is, to investigate the motives behind any wrongs committed against them and add other penalties to the punishment. Dr J sheds some light on what this really means--and how it undermines the problem we're trying to solve. Why are some humans more important and more protected than other humans? And how will "symbolically" expanding the definition of a hate crime eliminate bullying, which ought to be addressed in any case?
