National Women's Caucus condemns Duterte rape comments

The National Women's Caucus of the Green Party of the United States unreservedly condemns statements made by Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte last week. After declaring martial law, Duterte told troops: “For this martial law, and the consequences of martial law, and the ramifications of martial law, I and I alone would be responsible ... Just do your work. I will handle the rest. I will be imprisoned for you. If you rape three (women), I will say that I did it.” He later dismissed these remarks as "joking," but this is not the first time he has publicly "joked" about rape, even the gang rape of an Australian missionary who was subsequently murdered in a prison riot, saying he would have liked to "have been first in line." Nor was it merely talk when he looked the other way while his police force has murdered thousands of purported drug users and sellers, even claiming to have shot such persons himself.

Tarrant County Green Party posts petition supporting Sexual Orientation And Gender Identity survey questions

  In an article written recently by Sean R. Cahill, PhD and Harvey J. Makadon, MD, for the LGBT Health journal, it is reported that the Trump-Pence administration is eliminating the use of Sexual Orientation And Gender Identity (SOGI) questions on national surveys. They write: The Trump Administration recently removed sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) questions from a national aging survey, and decided not to add a sexual orientation category and a transgender identity field to a national disability survey as planned. These actions have raised concerns that the major expansion of SOGI data collection on surveys and in clinical settings, which has occurred in recent years, may be under threat. SOGI data collection is essential to understand lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) health and the extent to which LGBT people access critical social services, including elder and disability services essential for living in community.
