    I want to say thank you for everything you and other butches have done for me and my generation. Because of people like you I was able to come out at 14. Because of you I am able to be butch and trans without too much fear of being harassed. I really want to read Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme. Thanks again.

    The world is becoming a better place. We must all of us keep working to keep it so. We exist at the whim of countless people who could be turned on us in a heartbeat. Keep strong, remember, stay alive.

    This reminds me of that part of Stone Butch Blues where Jess and Ruth are talking about when they first saw queer people and realized they were going to be just like that. Jess thinks,”Oh ****, that’s gonna be me!” and that is my reaction to this picture. :D
