When I say I don't know what I believe, I am stating that I finally recognize that I don't have the big answers to the human condition. That I'm not "all knowing", when it comes to the truth of others. That I really have no idea what the experience of being transgender, for example, is, on all levels (including societal prejudice and discrimination). I'd like to learn more, but currently there's a lot I don't know. That makes me someone who wants to learn. Not such a bad thing.

What I'm also asserting is my truth, and a significant part of that is the knowledge that aligning with people I consider highly bigoted and homophobic is something I will not do. The fact that many others are willing to be stay silent about this, when it's become the status quo, or to actually condemn others for even bringing up the issue about aligning with ultra conservatives, speaks volumes. The end should NEVER justify the means. And, I, for one, no longer support the "end".
