  1. I wonder how much some of the violence is coming from how some of the old traditions that parents have thrust upon their kids, especially in the Latino community here in the Bronx.

    I have been told by even Latino men that rejection from a woman is an attack on their manhood. Don't you think life is supposed to be about rejection and letting people be who they are?

    My parents, who worked in the Theatre in the 1940s and early '50s, were also homophobic. I remember being 12 years old, and hearing my parents knock homosexuals as being sick. Both my parents were emphatic about this. I responded, "But they love each other." They didn't have an answer for that.

    Nowadays, I work in show business, and all kinds of sexuality is accepted.

  2. please call into the show and share these thoughts. monday night from 9-10pm. call 718-960-7241
