This is a fine post; balanced, well reasoned, and articulate. Yes, one must make difficult value judgments in such cases, though reaching a decision in this particular instance should have been comparatively easy given the crudity and blatant bigotry expressed by Dr. Thio. From everything I have read on the topic, she is clearly unfit for the position offered to her. This entire unsettling episode serves as yet another reminder that a substantial segment of society, both in the U.S. and abroad, still regards gay men and women (among various minorities) as second-class citizens - or worse. That is the salient point of my recently released biographical novel, Broken Saint. It is based on my forty-year friendship with a gay man, and chronicles his internal and external struggles as he battles for acceptance (of himself and by others). More information on the book is available at
