There is a new children’s book being published to spark the debate on the importance of having a non gender word for those that feel they don’t fit into the he and she category. I know it has nothing to do with the homeless situation but should it? This seems like just another little something to keep us from the issues at hand, survival of the strong.
Shouldn’t we be rallying to get education and spreading of the wealth on the law books? Shouldn’t we be making sure the small businesses and communities survive? Shouldn’t we be making sure everyone gets three meals a day? I am sure that those of us that struggle with wich gender populations would agree that it doesn’t matter if I call myself he, she or hen at the end of the day if I can’t fill my childs belly, keep them warm and safe.
In a generation closed in and hooked up I hope we shut off our computers and televisions sometimes and take a walk in the real world. In a generation where drugs, alcohol and prescriptions seem to be our first coping method we need some help! Reality is not always fun but this is the life we have and it’s in this life we can make a difference. There are leaders out there but the are not in politics they are organizing relief and care for those that can’t care for themselves. Those are the leaders we need interviewed on the news! We are many that have the ability to help but maybe are unsure where to start, where to volunteer and give of ourselves – we need those that are making a difference to become visible with the help of news and television.
Maybe we don’t want to talk about this uncomfortable subject to much because them it is a real issue we have to deal with. Hey as long as I have a heated home, a job and vacation time I have the strength to argue about new non-gender names! But put me and my three children on the street and I will have a new set of goals and interests. What about you?
