The Psychological Consequences Of Judically Imposed Closets In Child Custody And Visitation Disputes Involving Gay Or Lesbian Parents, Nancy G. Maxwell, Richard Donner Oct 2006

The Psychological Consequences Of Judically Imposed Closets In Child Custody And Visitation Disputes Involving Gay Or Lesbian Parents, Nancy G. Maxwell, Richard Donner

William & Mary Journal of Race, Gender, and Social Justice

This article examines child custody and visitation cases in which courts operate under the assumption that parents who live openly as sexual minorities will harm their children. Based on this assumption, courts frequently impose restrictions on parents, requiring them to live closeted lives in order to have access to their children. Part I of this article introduces the concept of the judicially imposed closet as courts have applied it through several custody and visitation cases. Part II examines social science research concerning the psychological impact of "family secrets" on parents and children as well as research on sexual minority parenting ...


Observations On The Folly Of Using Student Evaluations Of College Teaching For Faculty Evaluation, Pay, And Retention Decisions And Its Implications For Academic Freedom, William Arthur Wines, Terence J. Lau Oct 2006

Observations On The Folly Of Using Student Evaluations Of College Teaching For Faculty Evaluation, Pay, And Retention Decisions And Its Implications For Academic Freedom, William Arthur Wines, Terence J. Lau

William & Mary Journal of Race, Gender, and Social Justice

Research on student teaching evaluations is vast. An examination of this research demonstrates wide disagreements but also substantial consensus of authority for the proposition that student evaluations should be used only with extreme care, if at all, in making personnel decisions.

Embryo Donation: The Government Adopts A Cause, Jaime E. Conde Oct 2006

Embryo Donation: The Government Adopts A Cause, Jaime E. Conde

William & Mary Journal of Race, Gender, and Social Justice

The disposition of cryopreserved supernumerary embryos has become a divisive issue that puts to test the tenets of the "culture of life" promoted by the Vatican and President George W. Bush. The Bush administration has spent millions of dollars to promote "embryo adoptions" while imposing restrictions on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. On the other hand, contemporary Catholic moral theologians and philosophers disagree on the question of the morality of embryo "rescue" or "adoption" because the Church strongly opposes in vitro fertilization, the donation of gametes and embryo cryopreservation, as evidenced recently during the Italian fertility law referendum ...
