30. The thing about the use of "us" and "we"
Many of us in DU's LGBT community talk amongst ourselves, have had conversations about the purge, and often share with one another those things on DU that bother us. The purge was nearly two years ago, and many of us have had a lot of dialogue about it in that time. So, in making my posts, I'm talking for myself, yes, but also putting forth ideas and feelings that I know are shared by many, many LGBT DUers. I don't speak for the entire community - no one does - but I'm trying to hit some broader points that I know are shared by many.

I agree conversation is useful and Skinner's willingness to have this conversation is a good start, but online and off, I've seen a lot of dialogue and conversations happen with LGBT issues and then forever remain waiting on a follow up. My concern is that we'll have a dialogue, and then it'll kind of never come to anything. Hence aiming for a concrete act right off the bat. I think it would go a great distance in ameliorating things and signal that this isn't just dialogue, that this is all going to go somewhere mutually beneficial.
