"You can be scared when things get too real, but you should be diggin' it while it is happening -- Yes! You should be diggin' it! -- Because it might just be a one shot deal". Frank Zappa
That's great news. Happy pride.
Really great news...
The biggest problem with what Pope Francis said is that it enables anti-trans people to attack us. As to the actual content of what he says, it doesn’t really hurt trans* people. I don’t think gender is completely socially constructed. If it were, I’d be a cisgender guy right now because I’d be socialized into maleness. Maybe Pope Francis misunderstands what being trans* is (assuming he was directly addressing trans* people). At face value though, he’s just addressing the academic idea that “gender” is a meaningless social category.GE 3S
