I believe dividing the billions of people in the world with all of their histories, traditions, cultures, and ways of being into one of two categories: "male or female" is tragic, dystopic, and reductive.

I believe there are as many genders and sexualities as there are people in this world. I do not believe that queer, trans, and gender non-conforming people are minorities -- I believe that we have become minoritized (and there is a difference).

Could it be that we have been made to fear the very ideas, the very people, that most have the potential to set us free?
