There is, however, a very large difference between the words in the law and the experience of a person in their society,” Mr McElligott said.He said that there is still an assumption that if someone is homosexual that then they are less of man or a woman.“There is a message that there may not be space for a man to be emotional and with women, there is a treatment that if they are a lesbian then they are a different kind of woman, a less emotional woman,” he explained.The total number of people looking for support from GOSHH has risen from 175 in 2015 to 204 in 2017. The organisation has supported 177 people so far in 2018. The figures show a rise in the number of LGBT clients and a fall in the client load in other departments.Mr McElligott attributed the increase in the number of people willing to get help to the fact that “there is now a space to reach out”.He also believes that the process of educating society on LGBTI issues is a slow process.“Sometimes I wish that we could flick a switch and this would be okay. It would be really nice in five years if we could move closer to that place of acceptance,” he said.The organisation also works with client families.They attempt to build self-worth, self-esteem and self-confidence, while with the families it is about giving them space to ‘come out’ with the person.“We all know what it is like to come out. Everyone has to come out whether it is about your first boyfriend, girlfriend, partner, pregnancy – in any situation where you feel anxiety about telling someone something,” Mr McElligott said.GOSHH ran multiple workshops and seminars during Limerick mental health week and they can be contacted on (061) 314 354.

Marvin Kalb warns against military strategy that inconsistently seeks approval of Congress

first_img Read Full Story The founding director of the Shorenstein Center and Edward R. Murrow Professor of Press and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School, Marvin Kalb spoke to the Shorenstein Center about the war powers of U.S. presidents and how the lack of congressional support has impacted military policy.Drawing on the example of Vietnam, Kalb argued that “the word ‘commitment,’ when uttered by a president of the United States, almost becomes policy.” President Truman’s attitude toward Vietnam “changed dramatically” during his term, said Kalb. At first he didn’t see Vietnam as a threat, but by the end of his presidency, Vietnam was “within the national security interests of the United States.” Regarding Korea, Truman, who years before said that “if he ever had to send American troops anywhere in the world, it would only be with the approval of the U.S. Congress,” bypassed Congress and instead sought approval from the U.N. for war with Korea. The threat of communism advancing into the free world was such a direct threat, Kalb pointed out, that action was needed immediately.This pattern of keeping Congress out of the approval process on military action continued through the presidencies of Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon, up to present day, Kalb said. But the pattern was disrupted with the recent development in Syria, he said, when after making statements about a U.S. strike, Obama instead went to Congress to seek approval.Listen to the audio on SoundCloudlast_img read more
