Nothing excuses ignorance

I’m enjoying Sparky‘s posts over at womanist musings.  Here is the kick off of the most recent post:

So it’s time for me to settle some accounts here I think. So, to straight, cis people who support GBLT rights – what do I owe you?

A) Gratitude

B) Patronage of your business

C) My vote for your party

D) My buying your products

E) My reading and linking to your site

F) My contributing to your endeavors

G) The benefit of the doubt in all future privileged fails

H) Not a bloody thing

Of course the correct answer is H, not a bloody thing, because I don’t owe people for recognising my humanity or for recognising that society’s refusal to treat me as a full person.
