Remember this situation regarding Denver’s “missing” Can’t Stop the Serenity charity donation to Equality Now from 2007? There’s some back-channel word today that the man in question allegedly has made a lump-sum donation to Equality Now, paired with some sort of apologetic statement, although it’s specific nature is not known to me.
It’s also still unknown whether or not a similar apologetic statement has been made to the people who, a year ago now, originally contributed that money in the first place.
One would hope that if the person in question indeed has suddenly made a donation, and indeed has coupled said donation with an apology, that such actions will stop people from attacking me for making the supported-by-the-facts claims that I did.
And while one global-level CSTS organizer has tried (without knowing any information whatsoever, and based solely on the coincidence of timing) to raise the specter that my posts are responsible for the cancellation of this year’s CSTS event in Perth, I doubt the same person will point to the coincidence in timing and credit me for helping to bring the Denver matter to a close.
(To be clear on the above, I’m not actually claiming I helped bring the Denver matter to a close. I have no idea. My only point is that if I’m going to be blamed-via-insinuation by someone for things based solely on timing, then that same person should have the decency to credit me for things based solely on timing as well. Fair is fair.)
At any rate, at this point it would appear that Equality Now is in possession of the funds due to it from the Denver event in 2007, which in the end was the point and the goal.
In addition, the world did not come crashing down as a result of transparency being forced upon the reluctant parties involved. Let that be remembered should there ever be a next time.
Addendum: I think that Dizzy sums it up nicely: “My goodness. All this kerfluffle from CSTS Global for nothing. No matter what b!X said, the situation is being resolved. And the timing is curious, so who knows? It could have been his whistle-blowing that brought this person out of hiding. And if not? Well it certainly didn’t hinder them from doing it.”
