When I was in film school, one of our teachers was born a woman but presented themselves as a man. We became friends, and this was when they revealed to me, having grown up at the same time and working with Harvey Milk, that the new fight was to go after the meaning of words and that destruction is another form of creation.

As another person posted, we should be cautious not to stereotype the entire community any more than we would want to be by crazy people from West Borrow Baptist Church, for example. Still, some people in that community know exactly what they're doing, and it's something straight out of Brave New World. It's as if they read it, and saw a blueprint, not a warning.


I like speaking the truth even though it gets me into trouble.
