Even straight folks have closets

…and we are all bigger than our closets.

 

Ash Beckham, at TEDx Boulder, discusses the current state of homophobia in our culture challenging even the word “homophobia” itself. There is no fear, just loathing. Hating things we don’t understand, people we don’t know or anything that is different than our day to day. “Homophobic” people are not scared of anything. We all have a responsibility to live our lives as active activists not passive ones when it comes to protecting our fellow humans from hate of any kind.

    I really enjoyed her talk. Thank you for sharing both this link as well as yesterday’s link from J. Barrett Lee, which was hysterical. I appreciate finding/hearing/reading thoughtful people’s insights, including yours. Keep up the good fight.
