IWD 2016 – Pledge for Parity

The following posts started as an ongoing thread in the Community section of MyMedia Forum.

I am always amazed by how many people there will read the things I write, and how often there will be no replies. Not one.

Perhaps it’s the nature of the beast: it’s supposed to be a fun place, not a place to think deeply about any one thing. Either way, I’ve decided to re-post each individual contribution on my blog, in case the forum goes defunct–or in case enough people complain that I’m harshing on their happy, and the thread is removed.
