Initiative 166 and Initiative 167 are about hate and
discrimination, but more than that, they are about cultural genocide.
The women's community and the lesbian community have co-existed for thousands of years. During a civilization's
golden era, both cultures will flourish.
When the lesbian culture is oppressed, darkness will engulf the land. If
the rights of the few are diminished, then the rights of the many are also diminished.
When this comes to pass, the
lesbian community will not be
destroyed, but will merge with the women's community again. Both communities will be lessened
during this period, but both will persevere.
