    "Gay" Is Not Slander

     
    http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2012/05/31/us/ap-us-court-gay-slander.html?_r=2&hp

    "A mid-level appeals court on Thursday wiped out decades of rulings, including its own, to say that society no longer treats false comments that someone is gay, lesbian or bisexual as defamation. Without defamation, there is no longer slander, the court ruled."

    I just wanted to share this story because I think it is a good indication of how opinions have changed in a generation.
