Reading this article I was actually pretty sad, when he talks about how people live a lie basically just to make other people more comfortable it was really sad to me “When jokes were made about `queers’ I had to laugh with the rest, and when talk was about women I had to invent conquests of my own. I hated myself at such moments, but there seemed to be nothing else that I could do. My whole life became a lie.60 ”
At a very young age I learned how dangerous it could be to label people, because people will feel this strange need to live up that label whether good or bad. And sometimes if people are stigmatized they feel embarrassed if they are either not what people think or if they are exactly what people sterol type them to be.
