A Balanced Perspective
Donna Rose's Op/Ed Page
Everyone is entitled to an opinion. That's what this page is dedicated to: opinions. Specifically, it is dedicated to my opinion and supporting information as to why I've developed this opinion.
One of the things I see happening is that any number of issues/articles/people appear on a regular basis and people often seem to be in such a hurry to rush to judgment. Facts, psuedo-facts, opinions disguised as fact, and blatant misinformation can often become blurred in the rush to channel popular opinion towards one direction or another. This web page is my opportunity to address that.
The Opinions offered here are MY opinions. Sometimes, I feel a need to express an opinion based on someone else's opinion. Sometimes, I just feel a need to share. The opinions offered here may or may not be popular - the goal of expressing an opinion isn't to be popular. It's to be honest. And, the beauty of having an opinion is that opinions can't be wrong. They can perhaps be misguided or based on faulty information, but that doesn't make them wrong. They're still just opinions.
I expect that some of the opinions I share here will involve the transgender community or broader GLBT topics, while some will not. I don't feel constrained to one particular theme, and I think any number of other topics have equal bearing on each of us in the bigger picture of things.
With all that being said...here are my opinions.
