commented on An Open Letter From Erin Jones to The Stranger
#3 I am gay, and when Jones said she does not believe being gay is a sin for members of the LGBTQ community, to me that meant the same thing as being LGBTQ isn't a sin. After all, aren't LGBTQ people a part of the LGBTQ community? However, I do acknowledge that her involvement in a Christian youth group which forces leaders to sign a contract denouncing the 'gay lifestyle' is deeply troublesome, and that makes me remain sceptical about her stance.

Helmets are such a big deal in American cities because they are so much more car-dominated than cities elsewhere in the world. In Europe, Asia, and Latin America, people ride everywhere without helmets because the streets are designed in a much more pedestrian-and-bicycle-friendly way. It's actually the most striking difference when you compare American cyclists with non-American cyclists.
