Hey! Your words are a breath of fresh air for me....I worked in a gay nightclub for 20 years and I preached about this very thing the entire time. I know a lot of people got annoyed with me but I felt it was my job to say something since no one else seemed to care. I finally broke it down to the simplest form since I realized I had maybe one minute to grab and keep anyone's attention so I would tell people to never let anything or anyone else define them...to always question everything...to figure out what they want because so many people insist they want approval and acceptance which is NOT always a good thing...it comes with a price and that is often your soul. I would end my allotted minute with a reminder that oppressed groups of people end up oppressing each other and it is a much better path to walk when you are part of the solution instead of the problem.
