If there's one over-riding message to be had from this extremely decent documentary regarding sexual/gender diversity, it's this: a society cannot control what people feel without lethal ramifications. Nearly all the hatred, violence and negativity in the world stems from repression of one form or another, creating people who are so terrified of who they 'might be' if they actually were left in peace to explore themselves openly that sometimes they wind up taking out this overwhelming frustration on more evolved souls, the ones who are unable to stick within the soul-stifling confines of the roles they're supposed to be enacting in their lives. It's time to get rid of these boxes with their pathetic labels before they destroy us all.
