Musings on Massachussetts Republican Senator Richard Ross Voting in Favor of Trans Civil Rights

Musings on Massachussetts Republican Senator Richard Ross Voting in Favor of Trans Civil Rights

We SHOULD NOT be "surprised," in the least bit - - maybe "pleasantly surprised" - - that a Republican Senator is pro-Civil,  
-human Rights, for republicanism is NOT synonymous with being anti-LGBTQIA+, we should all believe, and given the latest scientific research into IMPLICIT BIAS:  we ALL are quite capable of holding tribal views, and acting accordingly.

Just like the LGBTQIA+ community is NOT at all homogeneous in its social and political philosophy, the Republican Party, I believe/hope is NOT.


Apropos, Laverne Cox, echoing the writer-goddess, Audre Lorde, cogently puts it, thus, " Each and every one of us has the capacity to be an oppressor. I want to encourage each and everyone of us to interrogate how we might be an oppressor, and how we might be able to become liberators for ourselves and for each other. "

Goddess bless, reader!
