It Is No Longer Possible for Me to Be Apolitical.

Until recently, I strove to make my writings apolitical because I teach Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) courses focused on LGBTQ+ issues as a freelancer. Not wanting to alienate potential clients, I have always concentrated on the science of queer topics and interpersonal interactions. I can’t do that anymore because the times won’t let me.
