I just became aware of yourself and watched the video where you talk about a hate mail you received. What a shame! I am sure those aren’t the only kind of emails you would receive, but I still think it’s important that we praise as much as the ones that hate.
Well…What a beautiful man inside and out! The way you hold a mirror to the society and their gender norms is an inspiration to many more than the haters I would guess. You keep it up, and derive strength whenever you need, from the fact that in the distant corners of the world, there are people, not necessarily transgender or gender nonconformotive, just people, who are inspired by you simply because you are a remarkable and an inspirational man.
Much love from Istanbul,
Thank you so much for taking the time to email me with kind words. I do get many many emails like yours and really not as many hate ones. But I though it was very important to address those as well.
Hate is a very scary thing and many people hate me or my message because they do not want to understand. That is ok because there are people like you who get a positive message from me and really that is the most important.
People are not always going to like what I have to say and that is ok too.
Thanks again for taking the time.
