Does anyone know exactly what a normative defect is? The deputy P.M. of Israel states gays suffer from it. I do not know what type of doctor I need to go to to cure this defect.

It still amazes me that the Cheney family is receiving any attention on this subject. It is clear that they, including Mary and her partner Heather Poe, have no regard for the gross display of discrimination that they themselves are examples of. I truly hope that one day it becomes amply clear the Vice President and Mrs. Cheney that not only is their own daughter not an equal to her peers or parents, but that their grandchild is legally apart of a single parent home.
