the interesting idea... the start of this project... the conversations to come

I'm a member of Post Crossing, the internet site for postcard exchange. I sent a card to another Post Crosser, Ilona from Germany. She asked that people tell her which magical power they would like to have. Her question really made me think!

In turn, I thought it would be an interesting project to ask people to pose Thought-Provoking Questions. I would do my best to answer with my opinion, and I would encourage others to add theirs.

And, so was born this blog! I hope that it will be the home for many interesting conversations in the year ahead!

Discrimination and Being the Queen of the World

From Germany comes this question:

Why are people afraid of gays (especially gay guys, because lesbians are tolerated, sort of)?

While from Spain comes this question:

What would be the first law you would create if you could be Queen of the World?

IF my law was guaranteed to be obeyed, I'd outlaw discrimination so that the first question would become irrelevant. As things stand right now, I doubt even the "Queen of the World" can make any such change happen.

I don't know, deep in my heart, why any one group discriminates against any other. I mean, I do know the socio-psycho-whatever-o underpinnings of discrimination, but as for me, I just don't get it.
