Brownworth Rocks the House and the Boat



Published:

Hey, I really want to give kudos to sister contributing editor Victoria Brownworth for her always thoughtful, extremely challenging and often emotionally charged columns. Her discussion about aging in the lesbian community [“The Politics of Aging,” Vol. 18 #7] hits very close to home.

As a single, childless 45-year-old queer woman with a wonderful family of choice, aging biological parents, but no savings and crappy health insurance, I am in the situation she describes—middle-aged with no safety net of any sort or protection of my privacy and civil rights, nor any guarantee of continuing employment, health care, affordable housing, etc.

I applaud Brownworth for consistently raising gritty, real-life issues that force us to think hard about what really matters and for broaching this topic in particular.
