We have to understand that we’re still discovering parts of ourselves, but that doesn’t mean we’re any less whole. We were never, are never incomplete. We are simply evolving.
To me, a whole person is someone who doesn’t need constant validation and acceptance from the people she loves.
I believe that subcategorizing has its place and that minorities cannot be ignored. But I also believe that ignoring race, gender, religion, and sexual preference may bring progress, in a sort of backwards way. It’s not a “don’t ask; don’t tell” approach, but rather a “don’t care; doesn’t define you” belief.
