It’s not Black and White — 1 Comment

  1. So very true. I don’t know if you have been following the brouhaha on Ravelry on the Ravellenic games, but the LGB folks are truly upset with the games being held in Sochi. My initial reaction was “oh, it’s just the usual Rav craziness.” But then I thought: What if Russian policy was as anti-Semitic as it is anti-gay (well, it’s not a great country for Jews), and that totally changed my thinking. Wouldn’t I, as a Jew, want to seriously protest not being able to voice my opinion in the Ravellenic forum?

    Sometimes, we have to stop and think what it’s like to be a minority, visible or not, especially when we, too, are a minority.

    Well-thought out post, Holly. Thanks for writing this.
