What do those three hash tags have in common? They are the voice of the oppressed, the mistreated and derided. They are voices calling into the wilderness of ignorance and trying to show that human beings in all that varied forms are more than labels and are indeed precious and important.
I stand as an ally to anyone who is repressed, who is knocked down, insulted, mistreated or denied because of their perceived differences. I will speak up with you, I will be by your side, not in violence but in genuine honest protest and discussion. This is how I was raised and who I am.
I will go with you.
