    What the hell is "psychosexual"?
    1. Yes, it is, and there have been some really absurd ones promoted in the past.
    2. I wondered that, too, so I looked it up: Doesn't seem to fit in the context of the OP.

    Medical Definition of PSYCHOSEXUAL
    1
    : of or relating to the mental, emotional, and behavioral aspects of sexual development
    2
    : of or relating to mental or emotional attitudes concerning sexual activity
    3
    : of or relating to the psychophysiology of sex

    Absolutely dreadful idea.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Re: Congressional Diversity Amendment

    Whether or not my congressperson actually represents my beliefs is far more important to me than their ethnic background or anything else. So, no.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    Don't worry about how members of congress would be elected. We could iron out those boring details later.

    Both a bad and probably unconstitutional idea, two for two!

    Hell no, it's not about race or sex, it's about finding the qualified individuals who best echo our personal political platforms.
