Hmmm, lets hope that John Jay fella doesn't get wind of this! - Will Marshall
Regardless of the legality of the owners' actions, they need to be upfront in their advertising and state 'no poofs and dykes please' and spare themselves bad international publicity and embarrassment to their innocently booked guests.
They have gone one step further than the usual preface to a homophobic comment than 'I don't care what they do behind closed doors...'. They do actually care. - Andrew
we can only hope stories about these horrible people become rarer but you have to wonder ? its pretty scary when the question of will you let my boy/girlfriend stay tonight ? happens but I think if you continue to let the boys ask whatever questions they need to ask you shouldn't have any probs, my daughter now 21 seemed to slowly get us used to haveing her boyfriend around - all seemed to happen by osmosis ! My boys 16 and 18 seem abit slower at bringing the girlfriends home - no complaints here - but they know we dont want one night stands and seem to respect this - marie
The tornado in Oklahoma was a sign of God's anger.
I went into a deep stage of reflection and this was revealed to me by The Divine.
As was Cyclone Sandy a warning from God for America not to vote for The Anti Christ Obama. - John Jay
Gee, what's with the cynicism here, just because Ruddy may have seen the fact that same sex marriage doesn't affect opposite sex marriage, it has nothing to do with politics, because he doesn't have the support of his party, so, he will never come back, and John Jay, you will be glad to know that same sex marriage is becoming a reality all around the world and god hasn't raised a finger to do anything about it, me being here to post this is testament to this. - Will Marshall
My middle son has ADHD and my youngest autism and ADHD. There is a big genetic crossover between the 2 conditions; that is they share many of the same genes. My son with ADHD is in no way disabled, but has low muscle tone and dyspraxia, just like my son with autism. These are neurological manifestations of a biological disorder and I get fed up when people try to claim that ADHD is a 'social construct'. ADHD is real folks and the medication, while not a panacea, helps my kids hugely. For the record I'm a pharmacist and my husband is a doctor, so we're pretty informed consumers.
As for the French! While there are many things to admire about the French their attitude to childhood disorders is not one of them. The French are about 40 years behind the rest of the Western world in their treatment of autism. This genetically-based neurological disorder is still treated by Freudian psychoanalysis and blamed fairly and squarely on the mother! The net result is that French families have to leave France to get proper evidence-based treatment for their children with autism. Sure the biological model of mental health is imperfect but the French are not being progressive here - they're still stuck in the 1960s. See the link if you don't believe me.

Bowel motions are God's natural way of ridding the body of excess.
I will not reply any more to you mocking God and promoting the unnatural practice of sick souls who practice the use of the anus for things going in, not out.
Your cleverness is The Devil at work. - John Jay
Yes this is an important issue and one worth close attention. And there have been a number of good articles on this topic, but not this one. What a hysterical, cobbled together piece -- "Psych versus Psych" please! You just can't cut and paste quotes from other publications, tie them together and hope that it provides a clear picture for readers. Particularly those readers who are dealing with family members who have developmental or mental health disorders. You might be able to get away with it with lifestyle articles, but not when it comes to mental health. I would urge readers to look elsewhere for a professional assessment of the issues raised by the new DSM-5. At best, this is sloppy journalism. At worst, misleading and dangerous. - Sally
Our house rules are you accept people as they are and we are not in a position to make judgements.... - Lynne
You find stupid bigots everywhere but I must agree with their right to 'my house, my rules' as it's a guest house not a hotel. Although I think they should advertise that only ignorant bigots & homophobes need apply, because you know you only want the right type of people to give you their money. - Nic
