Old news. I'm interested in the future not the past.I'm sorry, I didn't mean that to sound derogatory. I appreciate the efforts people made years ago, but I'm interested in my own personal future. Like I can appreciate Socrates, and Shakespeare, and Michelangelo, And maybe they do influence the way I look at philosophy, literature, and art. But we need to move on, don't you think. As a transgender woman brought up in the 50's I find the past rather distasteful. I hope for a new future. Dwelling on the past is the last thing I want to do.
