A Christmas Story!

I triple dog dare you to listen to this episode of The Hero’s Journey, in which Dan and I argue from beginning to end over the 1983 classic A Christmas Story. You’ll shoot your ears out!

“We’re all taught from a young age that there are only two choices: pink or blue, Bratz or Power Rangers, cheerleading or football. We see gender in two dimensions because that’s what society has taught us from birth. But, are you ready for a shocking revelation?
SOCIETY NEEDS TO CHANGE.”
Jeff Garvin, Symptoms of Being Human

“The world isn't binary. Everything isn't black or white, yes or no. Sometimes it's not a switch, it's a dial. And it's not even a dial you can get your hands on; it turns without your permission or approval" -Riley”
Jeff Garvin, Symptoms of Being Human

“I can't blame you for trying to categorize me. It's a human instinct. It's why scientists are, to this day, completely flabbergasted by the duck-billed platypus: it's furry like a mammal, but lays eggs like a bird. It defies conventional classification.
I AM THE PLATYPUS (Coo coo ka-choo)”
Jeff Garvin, Symptoms of Being Human
