Todd Glass was on WTFpod yesterday, where he publicly came out and proceeded to have a fascinating, honest discussion with Maron about his own story, the relationship between comedy and bullying, and why we need to just accept other human beings, already. Here’s one piece of his message:
Leave everybody the fuck alone. Let people do what they want. And that’s why that’s my bigger cause. You know the gay flag? I always thought it would be better to have another flag - not pro-gay, pro-everything. I don’t give a fuck: transgender, gay, straight, you’re a little feminine. That flag means we don’t give a fuck who you are. Come in. Come in to the store.
Man, I just got chills thinking about how awesome it would be if this were the world we lived in. Conversations like this one are a start.
