    • On February 16, 2012, by srjmsbnd - Due to a change in the government's use of terminology that replaced the word "sex" with the word intended to convey sexual gender, under the current wording presented in this bill resolution, the issues regarding this bill would include issues that are not originally intended like "sex between minors and adults", "prostitution", "brothels", "sex drugs", "kiddie porn" etc. though I would support an valid attempt to establish gender equally, such a bill as so worded is opposed; nor would political support expansion to include gay rights at this time.
