I wore my watch to communicate that it is time for this SHIT to stop! Elaine is pointing to my watch to emphasize what I am communicating.

SHIT as defined by me is the Supreme Court and the Roe v Wade decision that may be rolled back which could lead to the roll back of Same Sex Marriage besides the fact that Roe has been the law of the land for years and years and a woman's body is her own.

SHIT is also defined by me as homophobia, racism, religion, and any type of discrimination. It is time for this SHIT to STOP.

SHIT is most definitely Churches getting involved in judging people and getting politicians to make laws based on the church's "values". Everyone must remember that there is a Separation of Church and State!

I confronted Lou Sheldon the head of the Traditional Values Coalition in April 1993 while on a flight back from the 1993 March on Washington for LGBT rights. We had Sheldon trapped at 35,000 feet in the air and I recognized him and arranged for people to go up to him two at a time to tell him how they felt about the hate he spreads.
What was he doing at the March on Washington? "Gathering information"...I will not use the word intelligence in the same document where his name is mentioned. Truthfully, I am not sure what he learned from the MOW except that are Loud and Proud.
I have attached a screenshot of the of the story behind me confronting Sheldon as well as a screenshot of me on the front cover of the Orange County Register Newspaper while being a staffer at the OC Edition of the Los Angeles Times which was shot during the march.

Screenshots with the story from the Bay Area Reporter by Karen Ocamb are below. This story contains the names of the "heavy hitters" in the LGBT community at that time. (I use LGBT because there was no QTIA then as included identifiers).

Link to the archive of the story:
PS a typo in the above article, we had Sheldon trapped at 35,000 not 3500 feet.
