Dutch gay news, no discrimination gays at school, gaydar explained, hate crimes law in Holland?

30 05 2010

Party Democrats’66 in the Netherlands have come up with a new law that would not allow discrimination against gays at schools. Schools from now on cannot fire or deny a teacher for the sole reason of being gay. So far that only happened at christian schools.

A research team from the University of Leiden(where my sister graduated) have come up with an explanation for a gaydar. They presented 42 people, both gay and straight with photos of outlines of large squares and rectangles. When the men and women were presented with similar question about the shown pictures, straights answered faster and made more mistakes. Gays were slower but had more answers right especially the smaller ones. Gays have higher perceptual skills and are more analytical that allows them to recognize other gays faster. I dunno, I do have a gaydar that works very well, but if it is because of this…

The Green Party in the Netherlands( a party that I normally do not care about, I am not green) have come up with a good new law-idea right before election time. Why not earlier??? They want a hate crimes law that gives harder punishments(with 1/3) against people because of their sexuality, religion, ethnicity, handicap or age. Of course I am against all acts of crime but I do think if it is for one of the above reasons, it should way harder. I have to be honest and say I care most about handicap or sexuality.
