An openly gay man in Los Angeles is suing his doctors after discovering he was branded a ‘chronic homosexual’ in his medical notes.
Matthew Moore was dismayed to see that his sexual preference was listed as “suffering” from the “chronic condition” of “homosexual behaviour”
Unsurprisingly Moore has taken legal action against physician Dr Elaine Jones, the Torrance Health Association and the Torrance Memorial Physicians Network, both based in California. He claims this is a final step after a year of attempting to get these notes taken off his record failed.
He told NBC: “It was infuriating. It was painful. It was another attempt by this doctor and this medical group to impose their agenda of discrimination and hate on to a gay patient.”The health network said Mr Moore’s records had been corrected, blaming the mistake on human error, while Torrance Memorial Physicians Network said complex software was the reason for the gaffe.That sounds rather contradictory.
Prosecutors on the other hand accused the medical teams of a “pattern of deceit and medical record doctoring”.Mr Moore says he hopes that the case will bring and end to sexual discrimination in general.
“I don’t want any gay, lesbian, transgender or bisexual ever to hear from a doctor that their normal and healthy sexuality is anything other than that,”
A Better World
OK, at this time I always have to say that until the judge has made his decision, we are not here to prejudge what has gone on. However, if this story is true, then it is pretty grim.
It shouldn’t be so hard to live in a society where we all respect and tolerate each other. However, to some that seems the most difficult thing imaginable.
Thankfully society is becoming more tolerant. We see the way the Bergen escorts are respected by most people in the country. Still there are a number of people who need to change their ways.
Once they, the world will have taken a big leap forward.
