I don't know if becky_h intended this to be a meme, but I thought it was interesting reading the answers on her journal, and I was hoping folks on my flist would give me some answers, too. I won't quote her actual post because it was under friends lock, but the gist of it is:
What are your hot button or soap box issues? We all have lots of things we care about, but what are the ones that you're likely to talk about and, if you are an activist, what is the center of your activism?
Here's how I answered on becky_h's journal:
- GLBT rights and cultural acceptance, with a particular emphasis on family issues
- Feminist issues, particularly reproductive rights and equal employment opportunity
- A variety of public health issues, including lactivism, smoking cessation, HIV prevention and treatment, and reduction in gun violence
- Separation of church and state and, more generally, fostering a climate of religious pluralism
I don't think anyone who reads this journal would be surprised by that list. So, tell me folks, what are yours?
