RE­SPECT ONE AN­OTHER

DRUM - - Ed's Note -

The LGBTQIA+ com­mu­nity shouldn’t only be ac­knowl­edged in June [which is Pride Month], but ev­ery day be­cause all lives mat­ter.

They don’t owe any­one an ex­pla­na­tion about their gen­der iden­tity or sex­ual orien­tation. Gen­der can be fluid and should be em­braced as such.

There are so­cial ills we need to tackle and what peo­ple choose to iden­tify as shouldn’t be one of them.

Let us let them breathe with ease with­out be­ing ridiculed and re­duced to sex­ual experience­s and sex­ual phases.

Let’s ed­u­cate our­selves about th­ese things and do away with so­cial con­structs that are de­struc­tive to hu­man­ity. MASELEPE FELI­CIA, EMAIL
