Well written, very helpful for a school assignment!
Wow what a collection... am going to review again when I have read fully. This topic is hot on my life time wish list.... to see stigma as politically incorrect as racism or any prejudice. Paul, what I have read so far is amazing. I share your viewpoint that stigma has to be a thing of the past, socially unacceptable.
