Nicole Murray Ramirez writes at San Diego LGBT Weekly:
As an activist who worked with both Harvey Milk and Cesar Chavez in the 1970s and worked hard to get the first African American and Latino elected to public office and has written a weekly column since 1973 advocating social justice and equality for women, people of color, the poor, immigrants, trans people, veterans, etc. all my life, now to be called “racist” by some is yes, personally hurtful.
But to be honest, it’s not too surprising as lately some LGBT activists have become like “cannibals” and are eating their own and viciously attacking fellow activists and LGBT organizations. Recently, I have witnessed a trans police office called a “pig,” and a 71-year-old lesbian activist and founder of our AIDS Walk being called a “fascist” and threatened because she is a Republican.
