Gays Not Allowed to Participate in Clinical Trials
As sad as it is, even in today's times, gays are fiercely discriminated against. People, it seems, find it very difficult to let others live their lives peacefully and accept them the way they are. Why are gays discriminated against everywhere? Some might come around saying that they aren't and that this is a thing of the past, but that is so not true. Apart from the discrimination against gays on the marriage and military fronts, another one recently came to light. Seems like gays cannot be a part of clinical trials for medical purposes. Why, you ask? We don't know, because even the doctors who exclude them do not.

Reports have revealed that doctors and researchers needlessly drop gays and lesbians from clinical trials that look to investigate a range of topics, right from cancer and diabetes to depression and other physical and mental ailments. No reasons are given, no concrete ones at least!

The revelation seriously makes us want to raise serious doubts about the kind of a society we are living in. After all the promises of equality and rights to gays and lesbians, this happens, and no one even bothers to take the development seriously.
