"…But my question that's going to be in the next swell is what I was getting at. When it will it be enough? When will these people be happy enough to stop killing people and coming after us? So here comes my questions.…"

"…I am so tired of hearing about who I choose to f***, who I choose to marry, the pronouns that I choose to use and how children need to be forcibly internally examined to play sports. When is it enough? When?…"

"…But if I post a picture of, like, hey, did you know that in Florida it's a bit of a stretch, but in the state of Florida, if you allow your kid to wear nail polish, you could be put to death? And they're just like, what? I'm like, that's gender affirming care. Gender affirming care is now a sex crime, and a sex crime is punishable by the death penalty by eight people instead of unanimous.…"

"…Okay, last one. I consider it to be a badge of honor, like I said, to carry the past inside me. I feel like I was born at a great time, to live in a privileged life to where I was able to get those AOL CDs in the mail and log in and go to chat rooms and talk to people at the dawn of the Internet or so.…"

"…Ally is a verb. And while I know that I can never experience the things that you experience, and I can never share the burdens that you have to have, that you have to carry, I also know that as an ally, again, I see that as a verb. Don't see that as a description. I don't see that as a word. I don't see that as a catchphrase. I see it personally as a verb.…"

"…What's most dystopian is the idea of news not being news so that certain people just listen to certain facts and they're not even aware of what's going on. I even spoke to my sister yesterday about how Target took down their Pride content because they were getting too many threats and that's the opposite of what should happen. They should step forward and say these threats are not going to stop us from having Pride merchandise.…"

"…And one more thing. I think you should change the title or add to the title something you said that's so powerful, which is ally is a verb. And explain that. Or that could be the title of your next well, that you invite 15 people to, including your family or people who are part of your inner circle that you still want to see get more involved. Being an ally is in action. It's an not just an identity. Thank you so much again.…"

"…I love you too, Rosie. Sorry, ghetto Gypsy, I love you, too. I just want to tell you that I am so proud of you. And you are one of the most fearless and strong and terrifying women I've ever met in my entire life.…"

"…Hi. I just wanted to respond and say thank you so much for everything that you said. I definitely felt like I was feral and upset, which rightfully so, but it does help so much to hear someone else respond and to get an outside person perspective. It doesn't make absolute, total sense that when you're asking someone to commit to such an important issue, that may be uncomfortable for them in their own lives to focus on one specific thing.…"

"…So jumping back in here and trying to remember where I left off. But what that meant to me was that I really can't be a good feminist without advocating for other people that are marginalized in our society. And so I do put myself out there and I do post messages primarily on my Facebook page where my followers are. And I want to say that despite having as many followers as I do friends on Facebook, the friends and family that I do have are pretty overall right wing.…"

"…However, I do have a lot of gay friends, and I've noticed something, and I don't want to throw any of my really close gay friends under the bus here, because I'm trying to get some of them on this app, and I love them, and some of them go back a very long time. But I want to say that I do have gay friends that are not real comfortable themselves with the tea in LGBTQIA.…"
