Gays and the military : Joseph Steffan versus the United States by Joseph Steffan ( Book )
11 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and held by 1,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In April 1987 Joseph C. Steffan, one of the ten highest ranking midshipmen in his class at the U.S. Naval Academy, and only six weeks from graduation, was denied his diploma and forced to resign his commission because he answered "Yes, sir" to the question, "I'd like your word, are you a homosexual?" Six years later his cause, and that of other gay men and lesbians seeking to serve their country by enlistment in the military, has become the subject of intense national controversy. This unusual and innovative work, based on the litigation strategy and court papers filed in the case of Joseph C. Steffan v. Richard Cheney, Secretary of Defense, et al., brings the resources of clinical psychiatry, clinical and social psychology, cultural history and political science to bear upon the fundamental questions at issue: How is sexual orientation determined? How and why have socially prejudiced stereotypes about male and female homosexuals developed? Why have gays faced special obstacles in defending themselves against discrimination? How much political power do gays have? Marc Wolinsky and Kenneth Sherrill argue that gays constitute a politically powerless class that has been unjustly deprived of its constitutional right to equal protection under the law. They have collected here the affidavits filed on behalf of Joseph Steffan in his suit against the United States government, together with the counter-arguments of the Department of Defense and the extraordinary opinion of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Whatever the outcome of the case, presently on appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, this book will stand as a lasting and indispensable guide to the sources of sexual discrimination.--Publisher description

Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Voters in the 2000 U.S. Presidential Election by Gregory B Lewis ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Resumen: Lesbianas, hombres gay y bisexuales (LGB) en los Estados Unidos son mucho más propensos a por votar candidatos presidenciales Democráticos que personas heterosexuales. Los LGB son uno de los grupos electoral más leal del Partido Democrático, a pesar de la ausencia de uno de los mecanismos más importantes para crear identificación partidista: la transmisión intergeneracional. En este artículo usamos la elección presidencial del 2000 para examinar si los electores LGB eligieron a Al Gore porque lo consideraban superior a George W. Bush en políticas relacionadas con asuntos LGB o debido a su mayor liberalismo e identificación con el Partido Democrático. También examinamos el impacto de la socialización dentro de la comunidad LGB para generar liberalismo político, identificación con el Partido Democrático, e interés en políticas relacionadas con asuntos LGB. Usando un análisis logit en una encuesta interactiva Harris 2000 de 13,000 estadounidenses, incluyendo 1,000 LGB, los resultados muestran que interés por derechos para los LGB, liberalismo político, e identificación partidaria juegan un papel importante en el voto LGB
