As I wrote earlier, I applied(?) to have a link to my blog set up on oregonlive.com some time back. The person who is in charge is named Alley Hector, and she has a blog that focuses on issues that effect people in the gay community in Oregon. She has blown me off twice now, so I may as well tell the story about it. That’s something I do.
I’d think that a lesbian would have an understanding of what it’s like to have your civil rights trashed, and would welcome a disability blog, but apparently I’m wrong about that. She seems to not want my blog associated with the other more important blogs on oregonlive. You know, those really deep blogs. The ones about beer, born again bird watching, hamburgers, etc. Those are the blogs she’s put out there, not some blog about people with disabilities.
It’s probably best that I’m not associated with those blogs any way. This blog is meant to be taken seriously. I tell real stories about the challenges real people face in our state and beyond. Nobody else is doing it, so I’ll continue myself.
