Letter to the Editor: A gentleman does not patronize

Regarding Michael Alcorn’s “Battle of the Sexes” column...

I am a 70 yr.old bipartisan, grandmother from Golden, politically active since the 60’s.
Michael Alcorn’s uninformed, patronizing, rather juvenile article demands a “right proper” response from this seasoned “Child Of The 60’s.”

I see the urgent needs for unity in our country. A time for everyone to grow up, pay attention, take responsibility and stand for the best values of our country!

This “Battle of the Sexes” he speaks of, can and must finally come to the fullness of its’ power, shoulder to shoulder in love and respect!

A balance of the sexes.

Not a battle.

We need: #Enlightened Male/Female Conversations!!!

Alcorn’s narrow old Patriarchal perspectives are still too pervasive out there. Women too are still held captive, as well. Respect for women could be immensely broadened with a lot more clarity on Women’s History, just since the 1970’s!

“The times ... they are a changin’,” once again, for both men and women!

Men are and have always been the majority In authority!

A defiantly stubborn. old unhealthy imbalance. One that’s not going well! It’s time to grow together.

Elder women’s hard earned political voices of wisdom are a precious commodity to be shared. Helps keep our country safer, if heeded.

There’s a need to come together more powerfully focused on Equality & Unity than at any other time in history.

Carolyn Antell,

Golden
