The holiday season seems to magnify all the emotions, it can make for some rough times during the last couple of weeks of December. Sometimes it is good to pause and reflect and what is, and what isn’t and focus on the people and ideas in one’s life that really matter. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.

One of the ideas in this clip is about being a decent human being, it’s a worthy goal to strive for, and startlingly enough, happens to be one of my personal endeavours. So, if there is a holiday wish I can share with my fair readership it would be this, I wish for you to have the courage and commitment to being a decent human being and demonstrating that capacity on daily basis. It’s a win/win situation for you and those around you.

So, yeah, be a little like Toby from the clip – if you’ve watched the show – you know he’s horribly flawed person but sometimes because of who he is, he just gets it right. I hope you all can have many ‘get it right’ moments for the holiday season and the upcoming year.

Happy Holidays, best wishes, and warm thoughts to you all this fine season. Take care, and be kind.

“The idea that gender is natural is conservative, and the idea that gender is voluntarily chosen is insulting. Tell a victim of corrective rape that gender is voluntary. Tell any survivor of rape, the overwhelming majority of which are female, that being a woman is a fun set of clothing and behavior choices that she could reject identification with if she chose. Tell a preteen girl whose body is beginning to develop that the constant sexual assault at school, the constant leering and harassment from grown men, and the constant cultural messages telling her to starve herself, they’re all just part of her freely chosen identity as a woman.”
