Crane to Gidlow

I hope that Radclyffe Hall will one day write about a Lesbian who is not tragic, as I hope to do a portrait of  a man homo who is perfectly, or at least fairly, well adjusted to life. Don't you think the tragic and lonely aspects have been too much emphasized? Soon there will be no question about normal or abnormal people. One will merely write or individuals who fall in love in different ways, and the rigid conception of man and woman will melt away into something more fluid.

-Clarkson Crane, a California Teacher and novelist, writing to Elsa Gidlow, a lesbian friend, 11 April 1929

Children should't be subject to life long medical choices

Very interesting statement, which I'm sure the #transinc community will claim to be Transphobic.. in natural. There is nothing bias ...
