Thank you, Quazi!
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
I'm in my mid 20s and my mother is - as one would expect - a woman. She has been - as one would also expect - a woman for my entire life. If she told me today that she were a man and that she was going to transition, I cannot imagine thinking of myself as the victim in that story. I would be confused and it would take a while for me to wrap my head around it, but ultimately I would support my mom because she is my mother. She's taken care of me (still does and always will no matter how old I get). She loves me. She's my ****ing mother. The idea that I would make her transition about ME is sickening. I imagine most people - barring those with horrible parents - feel that way. Wouldn't you? If someone you loved to death said that they had been struggling with this their entire lives, would you make it about you or would you support them?
