Desiree — you don’t understand how the real world of politics works.
I’m not in your group, but I choose to support your cause.
That’s my decision and mine alone, based on my own reasons, and I am the only one who decides how I’m going to support your cause
I offer my support on that basis — and can withdraw that support at any time for any reason.
When you start putting stipulations on people — ordering me to read books by transsexuals and such — that’s unacceptable, rude and arrogant as all hell.
