"We laugh at sheep because sheep just follow the one in front.
'Ah stupid sheep!'
We humans have out sheeped the sheep, because at least the sheep need a sheep dog to keep them in line.
Humans keep each other in line. And they do it by ridiculing or condemning anyone who commits the crime, and that's what its become, of being different.
I had a choice at that point, I could have ended up -- faced with that scale of ridicule -- and ended up shaking in the corner. Or I could have said, as I did, 'laugh, condemn, I don't give a damn. This is me, and if you don't like me, well that's bad news, because this is the only me there is.'
And I refuse to conform and be bowed by the ridicule. And what it does, when you step out of the little box of 'what will other people think?' 'how can I put this in a way that other people won't think I'm crazy?' you then realize how small of a box you've actually been living in!"
