I enjoy older DU wisdom [View all]

Makes me sad so many can be harsh on boomers and even gen x. I'm 33. But honestly overtime when I first started DU. I was a very hard left person to where I was a Bernie or bust type. I was stupid. But I got older and reading many stories and experiences from older DU'ers. It grounded me to be more progressive but also to be aware and learn importance of being knowledgeable about politics.

I do think one thing I wish older members would do for me is learn about transgender people like myself. The process we go through mentally and also physically.

But I appreciate ya'll here very much. Forgot to add before posting this lol
