Why I Am Joining The March : I believe that ALL women deserve to be seen and heard and respected as human beings, regardless of race or class or sexuality or religion or health or any other factor. The part of me that is less “normal” is standing up for those like me: physically and mentally disabled with non-heteronormative sexuality. The part of me that is “acceptable” in current society — white, mostly Christian, educated middle class — is standing up for those who are other races, other classes, who practice other religions, or who have not had the opportunities I have had. We are ALL people and we must be seen.
