It's just, like, "this dude is bipolar", y'know? I'm really proud of that, and obviously that wasn't my doing, that was just society evolving.
And stuff like Tom from Against Me! coming out at transgender... I think people are becoming really open and supportive, especially in the punk community. It's really nice that it's no longer this, y'know, weird boys' club, where everyone kinda looks down on people who are different. I think it's awesome.
