To the Editor:
The editor’s note of June 9 failed to mention that in my original letter to The Hull Times, I specifically stated that an upcoming June 5 event “could be construed” in a certain manner. Specifically, my fundamental concern focused on the mixed messaging with regard to an event that the organizers admitted in their own press release featured “adult content.” Therefore, that specific proviso should have merited an “18+” disclaimer for the event’s public posting.
I sought to highlight the need for proper care and concern when marketing any such event featuring risqué behavior.
Also, I would ask The Hull Times to reconsider their linguistic efforts to marginalize and prospectively besmirch my perceived motivations. When a citizen expresses a thoughtful concern, that concern should be heard with an equally thoughtful amount of due consideration.
