I am one of the people who expressed dismay (distaste?) for having to slog through vitriolic posts and responses between people who had registered on Soulforce with the the sole intent of berating us or saving us fom oursleves. I was happy to see that a separate fire zone was established for people who found it envigorating to debate these missionaries from the straight world.
I feel much differently about young people who are hurting, even when they know only the hurtful idiom of their elders. So, I could see myself participating from time to time when I thought my experience or perspective might help one of these younguns. I have also thought that mentoring one-on-one through email or private message might be something I could do, given the right chemistry. Have we ever thought about such a matching?
