As if I weren't already sick of death.
The week before Creating Change here in Detroit one of our local television stations reported the murder of a "Cross-dressing prostitute", with a subtitle of "Man dressed as a woman found dead". The editor and I exchanged emails about the titling with her expressing her desire to be sensitive to our community.
Then, last week, the murder of 8th grader Lawrence King, 15, in Oxnard, CA was widely reported. In case you've been under a rock, this is about a young person being killed in his classroom at middle school because he was openly gay and wore "women's" clothing, makeup and accessories to school.
Today, I read about the shooting death of 17 year old Simmie Williams in Florida.
Perhaps, given this current spate of violence and death, I can be forgiven for my little rant over at Lobal Warming when I saw this post. I hate being politically correct; I think it's important that we have a sense of humor about ourselves. I guess today just isn't the day for a sense of humor for me. My earlier post about the Ann Coulter bitch can be found here (Yes, GM, I'd like to disassociate her from UM also!)
