Lawless’ Legal Case Against the LPGA “Appalling”. NOT a “transgender” issue, but one of Education, Language and Social Ethics.
I woke this morning, deeply disturbed by what I was reading in USA Today titled;
“Lana Lawless’ suit puts gender in sports in spotlight again”.
Sadly, what journalist Douglas Robson wrote is NOT factual and untrue. There is great work going on behind the scenes internationally. Saying this, since Mr. Robson felt he could use my name and Mianne Bagger’s and write about us which is also untrue (not thinking the impact on us to be presumed associated let alone how we felt about it – god forbid you actually ask the athletes), as neither of us are “transgendered”. Furthermore do NOT approve of Lana Lawless’ efforts to sue a private organization such as the LPGA because she wishes to play in women’s golf in the United States.
In the real world it does not work this way. We live in a world of give-and-take, of which Mianne and I have worked tirelessly over many years with sports leaders and experts around the world behind the scenes with the leaderships of Canada to drive universal change through research and language, of which diversity effect’s each person as EQUALS.
This is a continuum of a much greater social ethics issue, NOT a “transgender” issue as is being presented and great example yet again, of our societies inability to understand ‘NORMAL’ human difference because of lacking education, to appreciate each one of is diverse either it be cultural, social or physical, or a combination there of which effects each one of us universally around the world.
Working behind the scenes, with international leaders from around the world get this very clearly. But it is incidents and articles just like this that is a proven example of how hatred and violence towards those most vulnerable in society are portrayed, and that because of our societies lacking understanding impacts their lives greatly.
I want to make very clear;
“I do NOT support Lana Lawless, as you do not sue a private organization because you feel you deserve something and suggesting this is a “human right”. The world does not work that way – This is an education issue, NOT a human right issue. EFFECTIVE CHANGE comes through EDUCATION and GREATER LANGUAGE, bringing together expertise with a broader brush approach, as DIVERSITY effect’s each one of us EQUALLY –
You get a lot more bees with honey.
It is being presumed we are the “SAME” in the media because one has transitioned in their life. It is like saying because I was a breast cancer survivor as was another girlfriend of mine, one that our experience was the same dealing with it, and that our lives are the same as well too. That is just not so for anyone. Moreover, Ms. Lawless and Ms. Richard’s are (2) generations older than either me or Mianne. Our experiences are very very different in EVERY way.
Our goals are to create awareness and support of young people and their families to help empower and educate to create opportunities, education and language as equal participants through extensive leadership bringing global stakeholders together in and out sport to change the NORMAL of greater society which effects each one of us.
IT TAKES TEAM WORK BY EVERYONE.”
