About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives.

    I always go back to science of chromosomes. X or Y, XX or YY or XY, we have no choice on this matter. I can choose about my sexual orientation based on my upbringing, religious belief. But what overrides this is: I was born this way.

    Same old question, different time.

  8. This is perfect! In discussions about sexual preference, I often turn things around on people. I say to heterosexuals, “Do you think your sexual preference should be a topic of conversation?” or “Do you feel an obligation to declare your heterosexuality?”

    I just want to get the point across that sexual preference is not fodder for public discussion for anyone–or if it is, it should be for everyone.

    One can but hope to live long enough to see this slate wiped clean… When this tiresome issue of differentiating heterosexual and homosexual, white or black, tall or short, thin or fat etc will be so unimportant as to make the subjects boring and forgettable. No nationalism, no religious competition… just all earth creatures living in harmony. But will the war monger money makers and polluticians allow it ? I know, I know wishful thinking, but it’s got to start somewhere.

  10. Great – a very simple, obvious, concise way of looking at it – best way I’ve heard it put. QED.
