Women and Adversity:
Lesbians and Ellen Degeneres
One of the most bullied segments of our society is the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender group, also referred to as GLBT or LGBT if you want to put women first. They have been maligned and abused for centuries, and it’s taken brave people such as comedienne and talk-show personality Ellen Degeneres to come out and say it’s okay, I’m human. I am who I am.
An excellent video explains Ellen’s coming out through her own television show. Listen, be alert and consider:
There are a host of Ellen Degeneres biographies. She has written three books herself. What is important to remember is that she is a functioning, contributing, well respected member of society.
So she’s a lesbian. So what?
