Gavin Newsom: Hero & Scapegoat

Tue Nov 9th, 2004 at 08:57:42 PDT (Original Post)

I read an article last week (link anyone?) on Salon about the all the negative calls (400) Gavin Newsom got last week as people tried to blame him for the loss -- which I think is inaccurate & just stupid.

He sounded tired & understandably defensive and yet, still graceful.

I don't doubt that some of the calls were ugly.

I don't doubt that he's a strong man -- what he did & stood up to required a great deal of strength. However, no man can stand the weight of so much negativity without feeling it.

I'd love it if he got some calls from us & other reality based people ("reals" in my book) --especially straight people like myself -- who can just let him know that whatever our differences (or sames) we still support the guy & that he did a heroic thing.

I'm not saying we have to pass around flowers & spread love (altho that's not a bad thing) or even to agree with him. I for one have questioned the timing of the gay marriage issue (although I think we all support gay rights)

I just feel that a community that supports each other (whatever our differences) will be a stronger community.

I would be proud to belong to that community.

You might consider letting him know.

& remember, whatever our differences, I think we want the same things -- good jobs, better environment, freedom & equality for everyone.

Thanks, *ps. Btw, have you guys gotten over last week's hangover, yet??? Cuz I'm feeling like we're all licking our wounds & coming back together stronger.
