          I guess this an admission by Dennis Newberry that both he and Dennis Meiser are sheep?

          • “Ignoring” color (or any other characteristic) means that you won’t notice inequity based on that characteristic. Lack of recognition doesn’t mean the issue goes away, it actually makes it more likely that the problem will increase. Not counting LGBTQ+s in the US Census didn’t make LGBTQ+s go away, for example, it just means issues specific to us aren’t recognized. People who claim to be ‘color-blind’ are either fooling themselves or are trying to hide their racism.

            Medical researchers long used predominantly upper-middle class, cis-gender, white teenaged males to test their medications. This led to distorted impressions on the effects and effectiveness of their drugs. Many medications have varying effect on people with different backgrounds and characteristics – people with (natural) red hair usually require more anesthetics than others, for example.

              I’m in my sixties. Apparently I had the Mumps as a toddler. My younger brother got chicken pox as a preteen. I got every vaccine that was recommended as they became available. Everybody in my family got the ‘Hong Kong’ Flu in 1968-9 pandemic.

              I was kind of isolated (being a child) from most of the effects of the Vietnam War and the anti-war protests (living in very pro-military San Diego at the time), but it was broadcast on the news and printed in the newspapers and news magazines that my parents read. Not only did I watch the moon landing on TV, but I also watched the SLA (Symbionese Liberation Army) safe house being burned down in LA (live), the Munich Olympic Crisis, and the helicopters evacuating the US Embassy in Saigon. I lived through the HIV/AIDS pandemic (although I knew only a few people who died).

              I’m not quite as optimistic as that 87-year-old, but I think I have a better perspective than most younger people. ;-)

                  • I wish I could be charitable and believe that all those “post-Gays” are ignorant of history – that there’s no classism, misogyny, sexism, or racism involved.

                    When I was just Coming Out, I was afraid of drag queens and others who wore drag. I was afraid of people thinking that I would want to wear dresses and makeup. As I learned more LGBTQ+ history and actually met Trans folk and people who wore drag for entertainment and fun, I found out that it wasn’t threatening anymore. I’ve never worn a dress or put on any makeup and have no desire to do so in the future, it’s just not me. But I’ve grown up.


                    I am glad that so many others have fought for my right to be who I am. I’m not going to be standing on the frontlines of any battles with authorities or rightwing domestic terrorists. But I’ll do my best to make sure that other marginalized groups get the same civil rights that we all deserve, even outside the LGBTQ+ spectrums.

                    I have one foot on the shoulders of my LGBTQ+ forebearers and the other on the shoulders of those People of Color who came before me. I have many people to thank for my allowing me to live the life that I live. I try not to forget my debt to them all.
