I wonder how big this group of "concerned stockholders" is:
stockholders have submitted a shareholder resolution asking the Walt Disney
Company to include the prohibition of discrimination based on ex-gay status in
its sexual orientation policy and diversity training programs. 'The
resolution cites the need for diversity and equality in the workplace,' said
Regina Griggs, executive director of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays
The supporting statement for the resolution explains that, 'Disney's exclusion
of ex-gays from its sexual orientation policy and programs reinforces the
second-class status of ex-gays, and contributes to the negative perceptions
and discrimination against former homosexuals.'
The resolution also cites a recent judicial decision issued for the Nation's
Capital by the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. In that case,
brought by PFOX, the Court ruled that former homosexuals are a protected class
that must be recognized under sexual orientation non-discrimination laws. The
Court held that, under the D.C. Human Rights Act, sexual orientation does not
require immutable characteristics."
PFOX is the nutty group that just declared hate crime laws to be "anti-ex-gay". And I see they're still spinning their remarkable court defeat as a victory.
Hopefully, Disney will see beyond this horseshit and take the stance of the American Psychological Association and tell these misguided and dangerous people to "explore
possible life paths that address the reality of their sexual
