Myopia and Incoherency In Local Activism

Revlon Robyn shares the word of the day: Myopia: (my·o·pi·a) n. Nearsightedness, or myopia, as it is medically termed, is a vision condition in which close objects are seen clearly, but objects farther away appear blurred.

Definitions of 'Myopia': A selfish condition where the vision is only seen close at hand for oneself, rather than the result in the long term goals for all.

Myopic activism: How one only sees how it affects them personally, rather than for the common good of the Community.

Myopic: Where there is no L, G, B, or T in the word as a common goal, where should be, there should be none without that thought of LGBT as one.

Definition of Coherent: co⋅her⋅ent  /koʊˈhɪərənt, -ˈhɛr-/ –adjective 1. logically connected; consistent: a coherent argument. 2. cohering; sticking together:

Coherent Activism: Working together, with equality for the entire Community as one shared and common vision, without division.

Where we must be, is a common voice for our common ideals. If we do not have that, then we are a Community of Activists that are dysfunctional. And as any in any entity that is dysfunctional, we need to correct that so our voice is heard correctly and not that which provides a voice divided.

We all work together, yet we have those specialities that are so desperately needed in working those ideals that are specific. But we share that common goal to meet at that same place called Equality, and there is no room for division.
