My friend makes the point that it is up to all of us to stand up and fight against injustice, when we see or hear it. The quote often attributed to the Irish Edmund Burke political philosopher, Whig politician, and statesman comes to mind.
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”
However, I think jaysays does himself a disservice here, his admission in itself is a statement of his courage to take up the political standard and fight. It seems people may or may not do this at some point. However, it does not mean that he or she should feel any guilt, as those of you who are reading this entry would know being queer (my label) in a str8 world is not an easy burden to carry.
