During Monday's hearing on LGBT rights, one of the two Republicans on the Lincoln City Council, Jon Camp, seems to have tipped his hat on which way he will vote when he skeptically asked Steve Langdon of Community Action how he (Camp) was to reconcile Langdon's statement that discrimination breeds poverty, against previous testimony that dubiously claimed 70% of LGBT people made more money than average. This is a question born either of stupidity or bias. Since Camp isn't stupid, AKSARBENT assumes he is perfectly able to figure out that no "reconciliation" is necessary, because most gay people can successfully impersonate heterosexuals, and therefore can evade career-damaging antigay prejudice by being dishonest. Whether they should have to do that is at the heart of the discussion of the ordinance. Tellingly, although Jon Camp asked Langdon for evidence of his contention that single lesbians made less money than straight women, he accepted uncritically the previous assertion that gay people were unusually well off, financially. It turns out that it was Camp who, behind the scenes, encouraged the gum-chomping testimony of physician Richard Wurtz, who conjured up for the council chamber the highly improbable horrors of prospective sexual assaults by transgendered people who apparently will be transformed into aggressive bathroom-haunting pedophile machines immune from prosecution if an equal protection ordinance is passed. Camp's email is jcamp@lincoln.ne.gov
