Arguing Over Isness

... and this ...

... and all I can think of is this

This whole argument about 'passing' -- whether it's about gender, race, or any other trait -- is fundamentally over the damn fool idea that society's perception of a person is more important than their own identity.  It's not.  They may kill you for refusing to conform to their expectations, but that doesn't make them right.  Be yourself.  Let other people worry what to go do about it.
