Introduction Hi, I'm Jane. I am a community health nurse and nurse practitioner. But, let's set aside all labels for a minute and just chat. I believe there are an infinite number of sides to every major issue today. But be prepared to back up what you say with solid, unbiased evidence. The more I read online, the more convinced I am that people try to simplify debates by placing their opponents in box with a label they detest, and moving on. It is far too easy for men to discredit women by calling them a femininst. Or a lesbian. Try it here, and you won't get far. I'm here as a supporter of public health, LGBT health, elimination of health disparities, gay rights, diversity, and tolerance. I believe in the ideologies of acceptance and love, and that these are stronger and *better* than hate, judgment, and blind intolerance. I have a strong distase for bleu cheese and organized religion. I don't think it is anyone's right to demand that everyone follow their religious beliefs and personal morality, nor should they demand that our legal and medical systems follow one religion. Aside from that, welcome to my blog and thanks for stopping by.
