    Agreed with all but line 3. He’s going to inflame the right if he pulls Liberal Justice from the sheath and Decrees that we all subjugate to him and stop being afraid teh gheys. Pointless.

    This is one smart kid. No offense, Joe, I think you’re far better prepared for the world than I was at 17, and I’m straight. It sucks that it sucks to be gay. Fuck ‘em. I’m disappointed that so many people think their personal principles justify denial of other peoples rights.

    Scarily erudite and aware of privlege…only that comment about contra-gender fell wrong…he might be a theatre queen but not all of us are, and yes it is a pernicious stereotype for a reason…and yup local observation in theatre capital New York does not automaically mean a wider trend. Posting here since the article’s comment system seems down…

      Absolutely. He seems naively oblivious of the distinctions and contradictions between sex, sexuality and gender. What, I hope, he may be trying to get at is that problems of sex, sexuality and gender are caused by those who are painfully aware of their distinctions and contradictions and, perhaps, we should all aspire to a state of painless, joyous awareness of sex, sexuality and gender leaving us able to devote our energies to more pressing problems of privilege, class and economic inequality.
      C’mon. He is very young still.

      (Now I feel very old.)
