Since my first meeting with the TTC in nearly seven years back in August, every month somebody has found cause to call me a faggot on the transit system. (They never expect a comeback like “Yeah, I am a faggot, but at least I graduated from high school.”)

It would be excessive to say that has never happened to me before, but never so often, and I have no memory of the last such incident before this summer.

What surprises me is I am much more bothered and offended by the way the TTC treated and treats me.

I really like my pictures; my homosexualist-lock-screens project is what I am most proud of in living memory; this personal Weblog is an absolute cultural treasure.

And, last but not least, I don’t like you, either.
