Massachusetts Law: "Sexual Orientation" Includes Pederasty! -- Sexual Orientation Defined, Part III

In our continuing search for a definition of "sexual orientation" in the law, we made this shocking discovery: Massachusetts law actually declares PEDOPHILIA* &/or PEDERASTY** a "sexual orientation" !

[See Part I and Part II of our series on "sexual orientation" defined.]

Well, that really clarifies things, doesn't it? And note that, in seeming contradiction, Ch. 272 (of Massachusetts General Laws) purportedly addresses "CRIMES AGAINST CHASTITY, MORALITY, DECENCY AND GOOD ORDER."

Don't believe us? Read Ch. 272, Sec. 92A for yourself:

Chapter 272: Section 92A. Advertisement, book, notice or sign relative to discrimination; definition of place of public accommodation, resort or amusement

Section 92A. No owner, lessee, proprietor, manager, superintendent, agent or employee of any place of public accommodation, resort or amusement shall, directly or indirectly, by himself or another, publish, issue, circulate, distribute or display, or cause to be published, issued, circulated, distributed or displayed, in any way, any advertisement, circular, folder, book, pamphlet, written or painted or printed notice or sign, of any kind or description, intended to discriminate against or actually discriminating against persons of any religious sect, creed, class, race, color, denomination, sex, sexual orientation, which shall not include persons whose sexual orientation involves minor children as the sex object, nationality, or because of deafness or blindness, or any physical or mental disability, in the full enjoyment of the accommodations, advantages, facilities or privileges offered to the general public by such places of public accommodation, resort or amusement.
