The thing they used to say about me is: I may have no brains, but I do have guts.
Guess it's still true.
The thing that cracks me up is that I'm unpopular in Jewish circles for being kind to transsexuals and unpopular in the non-Jewish ones for not believing in theories of gender performance. I'm damned in both circles and it's f--ing ridiculous. Bloody hell; God has a freaking entertaining sense of humor.
Guess that's the way it goes...after all, the quote is: "I'm a leader because I'm too stupid to be a coward."
But that's the way it always goes.
One amazing conversation, however-
me: Are you kidding? My opinions are highly unpopular
Girl from class: but at least people are responding it means that u make them think))
me: Well, that is true at least. You are so positive! Hurrah for positive ____. That makes me happy
GFC: u a so funny))
me: Why? I'm totally serious. You're looking at this very positively
GFC: u mare some resonance its good
me: I'm seeing it as, "Oh, dear- my class hates me." GFC's like- but at least you make them think! Huzzah
GFC: not everyone
i see u as a courageous young lady who is not inside the religious shell and who is able to speak up and to look at two completely diifferent worlds... u must be proud of ureself and u have an articulated message, u are not like yes i agree with u and with u and with that guy as well, so everybody must love me for that)))
me: Thanks so much for the really kind words- I really appeciate what you have to say.
And it makes me feel slightly better, which is great! So thanks. Yeah, no- I figure it is more important to say what you think even if it is not popular
GFC: EXACTLY!!!!! ure like a gay person yourself )) i hope u know what i wanna say
me: Hahaha! Yeah, I guess in my own way - that makes sense. I'm "different/ abnormal" in the opposite direction
GFC: ye)))thats what i ment
its a freedom of speech, they wont stone u))
In short, I am now gay (for the record, I love gay people). Praise the Lord.
