I have been called many things in life however today I had a person I once respected for the position she took on many social issues verbal me. In my brief conversation with Ms Marcia Langton, I was accused of being a racist ignorant to the issue of violence against women. During this conversation I invited Ms Langton to read this blog but received a spray of sarcasm and disrespect instead. In the past I have thought Ms Langton to be an intelligent and articulate woman who gave voice to social issues now I believe her to be simply rude. The only way things change is through conversations all this particular conversation left me confused and offended.
In clarifying I agree in principle with Ms Langton commentary on various social issues however her unqualifiedirrational personal attack on me was no more than blatant bullying a form of violence.
at no time in my conversation with Ms Langton did I criticise her position so I am unclear how you came to your conclusion. let alone the need for you to personal attack me.

A Timeline Of Mass Shootings In The US Since Columbine
On the 11 Dec 2012 the Minister for Women and Equalities Maria Miller
“Following a Government consultation, legislation allowing same-sex marriage will be brought forward next year. The proposals are designed to create watertight protections for religious organisations that do not want to conduct same-sex marriages, but will allow them to ‘opt in’ if they so choose.”
Marriage for everyone – Government sets out plan for equal marriage
The People Speak was inspired by Howard Zinn’s groundbreaking books “A People’s History of the United States” and “Voices of a People’s History of the United States. I watched this documentary last night showcasing the voices of dissent, which have motivated social change across the ages in America. One could argue this is the real history of democracy in challenging the privileged elite’s sanitized version. Today there are still many people seeking justice and equality demonized by the minions of the privileged few.
