This was EuroPride week in which people from all over Europe participated in events to show their opposition to gender discrimination. Over a half million marched or observed a gay rpide parade in Stockholm, but even as these men and women marched, a horrifying proposal was introduced into the Swedish legislature which would mandate castration for anyone who is undergoing gender reassignment surgery. Actually a side effect of the surgical procedure in sterilization. For some reason Social Minister Goran Hagglund intends to introduce the new legislation in the coming weeks.
We can only express bafflement why a progressive society such as Sweden would even consider such a law let alone having the government introduce the legislation. Why is the government supporting gay pride week?
