00:00 Introduction
  • David Reimer's death
11:37 Question of the Week

"You say come out, which is fine. But to say come out, you have to tell us how to come out, considering the following: Many will lose jobs, how do we make a living? Many will lose family; you say companionship is important, so how will we battle the loneliness? We will lose all public respect. How does someone, especially in a high profile position handle this constant ridicule? We are targets for violence, just last month a TG in Georgia was brutally killed. In a perfect world, we could all come out, but Nancy, surely you have considered these issues before you say, 'come out' to anyone. If I was emotionally strong enough, sure I'd come out all over the place, but my life would be over as I know it if I came out."
(From: Macie)
