If you're going to the APA meeting in Vancouver this week, you should attend the business meeting, Thursday, April 9th, at 12:00 noon in the President's room, where Alastair Norcross will be presenting the petition asking the APA to enforce or change its anti-discrimination policy. The petition already has 1442 signatures, but the more people who actually show up to support it, the better. So if you'll be in Vancouver, you should go to the meeting. And if you haven't signed the petition yet, you should do that, too.
Addendum: Here's the response to the original petition asking the APA to enforce its anti-discrimination policy, from Mark Murphy of Georgetown University. More or less, he makes the argument that the instances of supposed discrimination the original petition points to are not instances of actual discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. As such (?), censuring these universities would be 'beyond the pale'. It's an interesting read, to say the least. My first reaction to it is that a lot of nits are being picked here and the arguments fail to address some of the deeper issues the original petition wanted to address. But, that's an unconsidered assessment, and you all can suss this out in the comments. In the meantime, let me second Mr. Zero's endorsement of the original petition. --STBJD
Extra Addendum: Over at Prosblogion, Keith DeRose has posted a thoughtful open letter to the APA as well. --Mr. Zero
