Filed under Columns, Opinion

Sexual preference has nothing to do with a selection process, no matter what the situation involves. Segregation of any kind is wrong, especially for employment, or social gatherings. Having feelings for the same sex in no way can define the skill set that a person can bring to the table. A gay m... Read more »
