You opened up a part of me that made me want to be a better writer. I fell in love with words when I heard you speak. And your movement - so fluid, free and selfless. Thank you for sharing yourself with us, King. Welcome to ancestry.

Child’s play imitates reality. Pretend play is how children learn to interact and engage in a world that’s still new and mysterious. Children see what we do and mimic what they find interesting. This is not only play, it’s learning.

What do we communicate to our suns when we teach them that boys don’t play with dolls? What do we teach our suns about how they should interact in their world? What do we tell them about their ‘role’ when we fill their play boxes with balls, trucks and fighting action figures? How do we teach them to be fathers when we begin by teaching them that boys are ‘sissies’ if they play with dolls?

If I meet one more homophobic bigot in this gay city of Atlanta …

I’m not quite sure what anyone gets out of stressing over who anyone else is sleeping with. It seems like an unjustifiable waste of energy to even speak on what’s going on between two, grown, consenting adults.

To all of my American Flag-toting patriots who think it’s disgraceful for others to disapprove of the way our government handles business - please understand that this country is far from perfect, and it is quite possible that activists & revolutionaries are more patriotic than you’ll ever be.

I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually. - James Baldwin
