No steps forward; three steps back


Our state rep has refused to meet with us.

The pastor of a local church--organizer of the original meeting, which I wrote about here--emailed us today with his refusal. Apparently, he's so scared of a group of 30 LGBT people and allies that he can only handle us 1 on 1. He told the pastor that he "will not be repeating last week's meeting" and said to "feel free to refer them to my office hours." I could spit, I'm so angry.

What to do, what to do?

First of all, I think a letter to the editor is in order. I also suggested this to the pastor, since she's even more of a hothead than I am. Second of all, I think I need to write a personal letter to this odious man. I'm through with meeting with him personally, since he's so disrespectful and nasty, but I can definitely add some bulk to his constituent mail. I wonder if a letter a week would make any difference whatsoever, if only to tie up his office resources? Third of all, I need to do something about this anger. I'M SO MAD! I'm furious. I need to figure out a good outlet for this rage. Fourth of all, it's time to call MassEquality and let them know what's been going on. Maybe they have some constructive ideas for us.

GRRR, I'm so pissed off.

Dear AJWP,

I have some lovely pink memo paper you can borrow for your weekly letters.

Ooh, good call. Except I really don't want another addition to my FBI file.
