ChangingAging doesn’t have a formal letter-to-the-editor policy, but we eagerly welcome comments from readers. You can do this in the comments section below each blog post or by emailing us at editorATchangingagingDOTcom.
Below is a reader comment we received over the weekend in response to our latest weekly Blogstream Roundup email:
I would like to comment on your choice of including the editorial – “What Elders Know About Sexual Politics“. I find it disturbing that a site that is dedicated to promotion of elder culture change would showcase biased political commentaries. The author fails to even provide a balanced perspective and mixes issues of a woman’s right to choose with the recent administration policy that would have required Catholic institutions to offer contraceptive services as part of their insurance package. Although I personally believe in a woman’s right to choice, it is inconceivable to me that an author would choose to ignore mentioning the possibility of a broader context. A clear argument can be made that this has less to do with how many women use contraception than with religious freedom and the issue of government separation of church and state. In other words, does the government have the right to impose policies on religious institutions that are counter to their belief systems?
In short, we will all be inundated with enough of this from both sides during this campaign season. Inclusion of commentaries such as this is not the main focus of your blog and unfortunately serves to alienate some of your audience.
