Transcript Neither news source would ever consider implying that a heterosexual's sexual orientation had anything to do with the sex-related crime that they committed. The result of such prejudiced reporting is that the community which reads these news accounts has all the fears and myths which they have held about the gay community soundly reinforced. An atmosphere is created which supports the oppression of gays. All of the efforts which numerous gay organizations in Houston might make in one year's time are nullified and made void by one sensational and distorted headline. As if this were not enough, both the Chronicle and Post have also taken it upon themselves to foster division among gays and those organizations which have expressed support for gay rights. Articles have appeared in both papers (see Chronicle 12-28-75 and the Post ll-18-75)which have stated that a faction (the Independents) of the National Organization for Women is in opposition to the position of support NOW took on lesbians at its past convention. To quote from the Post,"Some, but not all , members of the (Independents) also were unhappy at the attention given lesbian issues at the Philadelphia conference." Helen Cassidy, National Board Member of NOW and member of the Independents, responded to this quote by saying, "Nothing could be farther from the truth. We have three up-front lesbians in our group. The only time we have discussed the lesbian issue was in an effort to come up with ideas on how to take positive action on the issue. We have no intentions of being conservative on the lesbian issue." Cassidy related that the reporter who had written the article for the Post, had raised the question of the Lesbian Resolution with her and that she (Cassidy) had been very clear as to the Independents.' support for lesbians. The use of inflammatory headlines and the blatant misrepresentation of fact about the gay movement indicates that both the Post and Chronicle are using their vast power and influence to foster homophobia in the straight community and division among gays and their supporters. If their policies result from ignorance instead of malice, this could be corrected if they were to be inundated by letters of indignation from the community, gay and straight. In the meantime, don't depend on either source for reliable information on gays* Barbara Cigainero MCC Youth Group A youth group in Houston's MCC (Metropolitan Community Church of the Resurrection) is now being formed.
