Leslie Feinberg
“I want to understand about change--I don't just want to be at the mercy of it. I feel like I'm waking up inside. I want to know about history. I have all this new information about people like me down through the ages, but I don't know anything about the ages.”
Leslie Feinberg, Stone Butch Blues

Sam Killermann
“Gender is like a Rubik’s Cube with one hundred squares per side, and every time you twist it to take a look at another angle, you make it that much harder a puzzle to solve.”
Sam Killermann, The Social Justice Advocate's Handbook: A Guide to Gender
