Dec 20th 2010 6:29PM Dear travellers-
It seems that most of you are much healthier than I am; I require numerous meds to keep my heart and head functioning properly. While it may be good advice to carry prescriptions for each of these meds, I have never had a hassle over a one to two week supply of my scripts in my carry on bag as long as they were allotted in pilll reminder boxes (compartment for each day of the week). TSA agents are not idiots and do have some power to make reasonable decisions at clearance point in the airport. (now if I could just convince them that removing my shoes at checkpoints is not a major hassle for for my old, decepit body...)
Jun 1st 2007 10:18AM I appreciate that the writer also cites the issue of the womyn's festival when commenting on the policy of the the Aussie hotel. However, to take it one step further, the festival in its stated goal of a female safe place is still discriminatory against males. I remember many bars over the years where there were womyns only nites or other restricted places where only women were allowed. It always caused me to wonder what would be the reaction if there were 'official' men-only policies at certain bars and events.
I don't know the answer but discrimination in any form makes me uncomfortable, especially when it is within our own community.
