My conversion therapist would always say "People. Places. Things." He didn't mean it in a School-House-Rock-lesson-on-nouns kind of way. He used to tell me that if I surrounded myself with gay people, went to gay places and took part in gay things, of course I would be have gay attractions.
The #SolidarityIsForWhiteWomen hashtag made women of color, "ethnic women," even if just for a fleeting, Internet moment step outside of the shadows and grab the mic. We took control of the narrative instead of having it defined for us.
There's clearly a lot of room to improve upon the mess that's been created over the years with the various realignments. I would strongly urge the NCAA to start thinking about how these haphazard groupings of schools will affect their brands -- and its own organization -- in the long run.
