It belongs to the person whose identity is in question. That person can share all or parts of what they consider themselves to be. Whether they identify as any particular group regarding their age, ability, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, or other category, why don’t we respect their choices? When will we learn to judge less and listen more?  Hugh Taft-Morales explores the bad human habit of defining the identity of other people. He serves as Leader of the Philadelphia Ethical Society and the Baltimore Ethical Society and is a member of the Ethical Action Committee of the American Ethical Union (AEU). Email for ZOOM login information.
