IT’S CLASS NOT GENERATION

"My generation has collected more wealth than any group of people in the history of the world"

wow your generation were all upper class north american white people who are rich now?

"We don’t need to justify ourselves to anyone. We don’t need a reason to be queer. Maybe we were born this way, maybe we weren’t. Maybe sexuality is fluid for some people and not for others.
