Letter to the Editor:
As a longtime New Jersey resident, I was interested to see the PGN editorial last week (March 15-21) on the latest events from the Chick-fil-A saga at Rider University. However, I disagree with the conclusion of this editorial so strongly that I was moved to pen this response.
In response to Jonathan Gilmore’s column “No, your father isn’t always right” (Nov. 2-8):
I read with much dismay another example of seemingly simplistic and opinionated male-bashing. Disturbing to me is the fact that this diatribe came from a male perspective and under the banner “Critical Conversations.”
We must urge Philadelphians and, by extension, Pennsylvanians, to support protecting LGBTQ+ students and our rights in the educational sphere. We have unique situations and experiences that our non-LGBTQ+ peers face, including excessive bullying and harassment based on sexual orientation and/or gender, known or perceived; this treatment prevents a significant sector of America’s youth from reaching our full potential and making the most out of the education available to us.
Timothy Cwiek’s article about Saul Ewing’s partnership with TLDEF’s Name Change Project on Feb. 4 did an excellent job of describing that program and the important need that it serves. We have a long way to go before the needs of low-income transgender individuals are met, and every effort to meet those needs is welcome.
