“The State Board of Education voted today to adopt voluntary guidelines to help schools with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning students.
The guidance is intended to help schools create a safe and supportive learning environment for LGBTQ students.”
Considering something said late in this interview, regarding parents afraid their children wont understand something [a boy classmate suddenly joining the girls in the locker room, who in previous years identified as a boy]…
…I’m inclined to acknowledge something that many of us [myself included] often fail to acknowledge or understand…
Different generations are their own, different sub-cultures.
There is a lot of overlapping in practice and belief…But each generation develops differently.
Just because it may have been hard to accept in previous generations…that does not mean it will be so hard, for this new generation to accept…Things have changed so, so much…On average, kids know so much more these days…way more than most of us knew at their age…even just 30 or 20 years ago.
…Too many from us older generations…we’re trying to make these kids of today, fit into our personal experiences…instead of allowing them to live their own experience.
…But we see the resilience and capacity emerge…whenever we allow kids to explore, see and know the world around them.
For a lot of them…we see that stigma surrounding homosexuality and gender issues, is something which is going away…It effectively does not exist for them…certainly not on the level, that it did for us…And that is an objective good, I think.
…It’s one thing that gives me hope for the future.

“A federal appeals court has upheld Michigan’s emergency manager law.
The Sixth Circuit United States Court of Appeals says the law does not violate voting rights, and it does not racially discriminate.
The court’s opinion says there is no fundamental right to vote for local officials. It also says the state has a legitimate interest in fixing financially struggling local governments.
In light of Monday’s ruling, where does Michigan go from here?
Wayne State University law professor Peter Hammer will be part of a panel exploring that question tomorrow at a forum put on by the Institute for Public Policy and Social Research at Michigan State University.
Hammer joined us today to talk about the ruling.”
This is related to the Flint water crisis, where numerous children and adults were being poisoned…and the state government which had seized oversight of this issue, refused to do anything about it.

This is a spoken word rap that was spoken in public at numerous “poetry readings” over quite a few years in the 1990s. This movie includes art by myself, from various issues of a self-published zine I did back then, also.”
