    Quotes[edit | edit source]

    "I remember growing up with Mechanical Animals by Marilyn Manson, seeing that imagery and being like, “What the hell? He's literally on MTV with tits!” That really influenced me, so I want to explore that whole idea that gender isn't a real thing -- that it's just something they came up with to categorize and control people."[4]
