Quotes[edit | edit source]
"I always think – look around…the world is insanely complicated? I mean Jesus…Octopuses can change colour, shape and size at will…our brains make billions of neural decisions every second…but you can't for a second understand that some people's genders don't sit in the binary framework of sex?"
