No surprise to AGFC, homophobia has been proven over and over to be a destructive phenomenon that tears at the very fabric of society.
A new study shows that in six countries, Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) among gays correlated with experiences of homophobic discrimination, internalised homophobia and heterosexist social pressures.
Is the agenda of the “Jamaica Coalition for a Healthy Society” geared towards a healthy society?
Is the anti-gay political agenda ignoring the peer-reviewed science below?
The impact of parenting on gay male couples’ relationships, sexuality, and HIV risk.
Homophobia has been shown to have serious negative effects on society. Anti-gay activists claim that they do not like to be called “homophobic” because a disagreement doesn’t make them have a phobia. Does peer-reviewed science prove this?
Here are some recent studies:
AGFC intelligence has gathered information on a new argument that certain major anti-gay activists in Jamaica are using to justify keeping the buggery law.
Do you remember our previous blog post about the All Angles programme on TVJ where Wayne West and Rev. Chisholm declared that if the buggery law is repealed then children in school will be taught about buggery?(View here if you didn’t: http://antigayfactcheck.org/2012/07/12/the-anti-gay-lies-of-wayne-west-on-all-angles/)
Though at the time we didn’t know their reasoning behind that claim we now know it.
Well here is how the story goes(Though it may seem ridiculous we assure you we are not making this up):
At AGFC we love science especially because we know it also always proves the scientifically challenged anti-gay religious movement wrong.
Many anti-gay activists in Jamaica make the claim that anti-homosexual laws do not contribute to the higher prevalence rate seen in countries that criminalise homosexuality. Is idea this supported by peer-reviewed modern science?
A new study on HIV in the African diaspora has been released in The Lancet on July 28th, 2012. The Lancet is the second highest ranking medical journal in the world.
