Came across this one this morning... Doesn't this stamp seem a little ironic today?

re: Scott 3190j

So, you guys missed the Psychology 101 class which addressed the difference between a transgender person and a rapist? And you're pleased with yourselves for slandering Jenner because had the courage to request gender reassignment? I feel like I'm back in a high school locker room, a type of place I really loathed.

Bob (not laughing)

re: Scott 3190j

Whoa!

On a higher level than just the 'Cos or Caitlyn, I think that the point being made is that postal authorities have relaxed their rules to allow "living" people on stamps. It's a worthy discussion to have - do stamp issues need to give us the benefit of time to decide what's worthy? Canada has issued a number of stamps to portray people still with us (after, I think, relaxing the rules for the Queen Mother's 100th birthday), including musical groups and hockey players. On the other hand, who can criticize a stamp commemorating Bobby Orr....?????

IMHO, neither Bill Cosby or Caitlyn Jenner are stamp worthy. Nor are a bunch of other people who have grabbed the headlines over the past few months. I'm looking on the good side of things and holding to the notion that Bruce/Caitlyn were not stamp worthy (except in Australia, where they print stamps of their medal winners; but only because they won a medal), as the 'Cos was just a poor, poor choice to sell stamps...

re: Scott 3190j

The Cosby stamp was issued 15 years ago. It isn't new. The allegations came out in 2005 or thereabouts.

When promoting what's going on in current affairs, there is always the risk that something is lurking in the closet.

Bob, good point.

re: Scott 3190j

The rules should not be relaxed. At a minimum it should be post death. I appreciate the collector factor and $ making issues, but there should be some respect and honor to having an individual on a stamp. Should be a real hero and at least a few years after death to ensure it is a long term worthy reason and not just the political hot topic of the day. That's what bothers me... What will really matter and be important 50-100 from now that should be on a stamp.

Just my 2 cents

Not everyone feels as you do Bob. Please respect the right of others to a difference of opinion without insinuating that they are somehow involved in slander.

Thanks,
Antonio
