its brilliant/needed. i was really angry on the bus due to problems in my current life and then i opened it up because it is the book in my bag at the moment and while i was reading it... my anger plus the books anger... i cried.

i have one argument against the piece as a whole... many argues queers dont protest because they are too concerned with getting married to care about fighting for rights. personally. i see fighting for rights, for the grand dreams i desire is fighting for what will never be.

Sulphur, that's a beautiful bus moment -- thanks for sharing! Think I'm ready for one of those...

And I think it's okay to fight for what will never be, in fighting for it maybe there's a little bit of space that's created...
