If you think that people of other "sexual orientations" are just fine and deserve legal protection from expressions of 'hatred or contempt', let's see what other "sexual orientations" you would necessarily have to accept as wholesome and pure.
If you discriminate against any of these, you're a hypocrite. These"sexual orientations" are generally known as "paraphilias", and are mental disorders - just like homosexuality used to be.
If you're not going to discriminate based on "sexual orientation", then you must not discriminate against any of the following.
Coprophilia - involves people who are sexually aroused by feces.
Exhibitionism - involves people who are sexually aroused by the idea of exposing their genitals to a stranger.
Fetishism - involves people who are sexually aroused by nonliving objects.
Frotteurism - involves people who are sexually aroused by the idea of touching and rubbing against a nonconsenting person.
Warren Graboyes, a former orthodontist in the Philadelphia suburbs, lost his license in 1991 after pleading guilty to fondling a teenage female patient. Unable as a result to practice orthodontics, Graboyes sued his insurance company for $5,000 a month in disability payments. Graboyes argues that he suffers from frotteurism---described in court proceedings as a compulsion to touch the private parts of females.
Klismaphilia - involves people who are sexually aroused by enemas.
Necrophilia - involves people who are sexually attracted to corpses. also: A misunderstood sexual orientation?

A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF CALIFORNIA ASSEMBLY BILL 101 (Updated May 27, 1997) Sexual Orientation
Neither the definition used by the Fourth District Court of Appeal, nor anything in AB-101, focuses the legislation on homosexuality. Therefore, logically, the phrase "sexual orientation" would include heterosexuality, bestiality, pedophilia, necrophilia, sado-masochism, and/or any other "sexual habits, practices, predilections or compulsions." http://www.pacificanews.com/usjf/html/ab101.htm
Sexual Masochism - involves people who are sexually aroused by being "humiliated, beaten, bound, or otherwise made to suffer."
Sexual Sadism - involves people who are sexually aroused by causing the psychological or physical suffering of a victim (e.g., "restraint, blindfolding, paddling, spanking, whipping, pinching, beating, burning, electrical shocks, rape, cutting, stabbing, strangulation, torture, mutilation, or killing").
Telephone Scatologia - involves people who are sexually aroused by making obscene phone calls.
Transvestic Fetishism - involves people who are sexually aroused by cross-dressing.
Urophilia - involves people who are sexually aroused by urine.
Voyeurism - involves people who are sexually aroused by watching unsuspecting strangers have sex.
Zoophilia - involves people who are sexually attracted to animals.
..as more and more people come out of the closet about their zoosexuality, the easier it will be for society to accept them."Zoosexuality is an orientation, in the same category as hetero-, homo-, and bisexuality,"
Do we really need an Attorney General/Premier working to obtain additional legal protection for these perverts?
Do we really need more laws criminalizing people who might wish to express 'hatred' or 'contempt' for these perverts?
