Namae nante iranai! wants to say that the Japanese characters for my name are 「名前なんて要らない!」, and I'd like to translate it as, "I don't need a stinkin' name!"

Chipped in $5. Wish I had more to give. This is all so beautiful.

Now I have "Wake Up Little Susie" stuck in my head. Still, loved the video. Will definitely vote, at least.

@16 said exactly what I wanted to. Consider this another vote for the first book in the series!

I lived on forty dollars a week (not counting housing expenses) for about eight months, even though I was buying groceries for two and needed medicine on top of that. Forty dollars is a lot of money to me.

I'm not allowed to dislike her video, apparently. It would've been a treat to see how many likes versus dislikes it garnered... And the youtube flame wars... Ah well.

What really sickened me was how eager she sounded about denying people rights.

I had my first big crush on a boy when I was four; I had my first big crush on a girl when I was seven. I loved reading this. I wish that my mom had fought for me, rather than going to a bunch of choicer websites and telling me that I could change.

Thankfully, over the last eight years, she's come around. Every baby step was a fight, and she still has trouble, but things are so much better.

I'm a Kinsey 5 or so, a woman, and I've been in a committed, open relationship with a boy for almost four years now. I like the idea of getting married someday, but a rather significant part of me balks at the idea of marriage. Why? If I were in the same relationship I have now, but with a girlfriend, I wouldn't be able to get married. But even more than that, I'm afraid that my sexual orientation will be utterly subsumed by a marriage. Everyone in my life would round me up to straight--that's what I'm afraid of. Thinking that makes me nauseous.

Despite being more attracted to women than men, I've dated a total of two boys and one girl. Girls just aren't attracted to me. I ran a GSA for three years, I suffered through my mother's homophobic conversations, which urged me to make the right "choice" and I fought with her until, eight years later, she finally came to support almost all LGBT issues. Just in time for my little sister to come out, too, from the looks of things.

So what I'm saying is that I identify strongly with the LGBT community. And I'm afraid to have that identity taken from me.

...Am I worried about nothing? I don't even know any more. I'm steadfastly out (whenever I remember that people can't magically see that I'm bi) and I argue with every homophobe that stumbles into my life unless I think they might actually kill me.

I probably could've said this more concisely. Sorry. Does all that make sense?

@BEG... I had no idea. That's just--that's awful. I just wanted to say that I'm sorry that you had to go through that. I'm glad that you didn't stress too much back then, but that sounds just awful. I mean... Do they really try to forbid kids from using sign language? (The only sign language I know is the alphabet; I want to learn more, but I just don't know where to begin...) I just have a hard time imagining it.

If Gus doesn't get around to giving you a good account of the video, I'll try to help out. But I think Gus would be better at it, and I haven't actually been able to sit down and bring myself to watch parts two and three yet, so I'll hold off for the moment.
