Quote

Someone who fears what will happen if women and transgendered people gain true equality, if all humans are able to marry someone they love, or any other thing that absolutely needs to happen before this fight is over, should not be babied into thinking their fears are reasonable. No matter how real that fear feels to them, it’s still illogical, irrational, and completely naive. The only thing they stand to lose is their ability to scream about being afraid without being seen as a bigoted fool.
