I am against agitation and loud statements. If we want to convince someone of something, shouting will not work. I can imagine the average heterosexual, thinking of how to pay the mortgage, take the children to the sea in the summer and stuff like that. And here we are, standing on a chair, declaring something loudly, demanding the right to walk down the street in a thong. Well, does it really work?

If we speak about the propaganda, we need calm conversation. We are, after all, the same as they are. We have the same aspirations, by and large. We fall in love, think about our career, as well dream of the sea. We are one of them ...

What about those in power? They are cunning and greedy as they have always been. Authorities want to show us as an enemy. We should not allow it. Theyd better keep our roofs clear of icicles and build roads. What about us? We are, after all, someone's grandchildren, neighbors, co-workers. The authorities can hardly do anything about it..."
