I’m only about 2.5 weeks post op, and I’m Not supposed to raise my arms anywhere near above my head– but marching with women for women felt like the best excuse to do so. (I only took off my shirt for this photo, I’m not completely neglecting my scars or healing).

“Gilman Street was the best education I got. Walking through that door the first thing I saw was a sign saying ‘No Sexism, No Racism, No Homophobia’, and I think that’s had an impact on me for the rest of my life,” he recalls. 

“Now when people come to our shows the main thing is I want them to feel like they’re in a safe space. If you’re gay, straight, white, black, brown, transgender, if there’s one place you feel you can go to it’s a Green Day gig.”

“They’re just opposing views, that doesn’t make one less fair or worse than the other” is fundamentally false.

Gay rights activists aren’t working against straight marriage. Homophobes are working against gay marriage.

Pro-choice activists don’t want everyone to get an abortion, they want everyone to have to option to. “Pro-lifers” want nobody to get an abortion, whether or not the pregnancy is safe or the parent is ready or well equipped.

People fighting for racial rights aren’t asking for to be treated better than white people, they’re asking to be treated the same as white people, while white supremacists/racists want minorities to have less rights than them, or for other races to be straight up eradicated.

These aren’t two sides of the same coin or differing opinions. This is a matter of one group working for equality, and the other working selfishly against it. These things aren’t just excusable as a opinions. It’s past that.

Also I made Gary Oak’s name Trump in this playthrough for the sole purpose of seeing this notification again and again but couldn’t have predicted how amazing the dialogue would be. They’re both whiny man children and it’s just so accurate that it’s funny and sad simultaneously.
