Text Reads:Curiosity is vital to the growth of our society. It allows us to stretch our minds and learn more, which I truly believe was Couric’s intention: to educate her viewers. But curiosity and mere mystery objectifies and others those that are being gazed upon, pushing our most marginalized peers to defend their right to exist without the pervasive violation of the dehumanizing gaze of curiosity. ~ Janet Mock: I’M A TRANS WOMAN, BUT PLEASE STOP ASKING ME ABOUT MY GENITALIA

Text Reads:It’s funny how hard life can be as a trans person while in high school; fearing or being rejected by parents and friends while battling inner demons. It can be one of the most depressing parts of your life, though when you find that one person who you tell and they smile and say “I know” and they’re there for you, it’s like you have a new sword to fight your demons with and a new shield to deflect their words.

Text Reads:I think my Dad will always prefer having a daughter over another son; that makes me sad because I know I would be a better son than the daughter I pretend to be. I am so close to breaking and I don’t want to lose the man that sung me to sleep. Submitted by Anon
