I was a teenage anarchist

I learned this month that one of my most favorite musicians ever, Tom Gabel from Against Me!, is transgender.  I was shocked.  His voice is so raw and gritty, his music is so punk rock, and Ive pretty much had a crush on him since the first time ever I saw his face.  I dont know a lot about the details of being transgender, nor do I say that after doing a little research I even do now, but I just feel so sad (like fuck life sometimes) and cant imagine what it would be like to wake up every morning knowing you are different, wishing you were the opposite sex. 

So here is to Laura Jane Grace… a brave, amazing woman who I will ALWAYS love, no matter what.  Against Me! for life and please please keep making music.  Xoxo.
