I am one of the "stable" of bloggers that Bil brought along when he turned Bilerico.com into the Bilerico Project. This will be my first post on this new, broader platform, and it seems only appropriate to make some disclosures, and to ask a couple of questions that flow from those disclosures.
Do I Belong?
As nearly as I can tell, I am the only heterosexual contributor at the present time. Worse, I'm not even a young, hip and/or "with it" member of the upcoming (clearly less homophobic) generation.
I'm a Jewish grandmother. A recovering lawyer. A nerdy college professor. And locally, a routinely vilified biweekly columnist for our local daily paper, the Indianapolis Star.
True, I have a gay son, a gay grandchild, gay nephews and a zillion gay friends. But my question for readers of this new and improved blog--all of whom appear to be little older than my oldest grandchild, for crissakes!--is simple.
Why should you give a rat's ass (pardon my language) about what I have to say??
Bil is a friend and obviously reluctant to show me the door, but I'm dubious. So I'm asking those of you who are regulars here to let me know. I promise my feelings won't be hurt!
Am I too old--and too straight--to be here?
