Bias is inescapably at work in what stories are covered by newsmedia, how
they are set up, and by the selection of what news "is fit to print" (to
mention only a few ways.) I accept this as inevitable and in consequence I
make no pretense of objectivity. So, rather than trying to gull readers
into believing that I am an impartial observer, I prefer to state my
prejudices in advance.
Be advised then that I am vehemently opposed to sexism, heterosexism (the
cultural prescription of heterosexuality as the only legitimate form of
sensuality), racism, capitalism and like systems of oppression. I am a
supporter of organized labor and an advocate of popular democracy.
