"Mamá, yo de mayor quiero ser como tú", dice Uriel. "¿Quién decide quién es niño y quién es niña?", preguntó Pedro con dos años y medio, y añadió: "Porque conmigo se equivocó". En un pueblo de Sevilla, otro pequeño se hace pis en el cole porque se niega a entrar en los aseos de los varones. Los tres nacieron con genitales masculinos y les pusieron nombre de chico. Hoy son Ariel, Eva y María. Son niñas, y son felices.

Inside Against Me!'s "Transgender Dysphoria Blues"
Laura Jane Grace is the kind of frontwoman who locks eyes with stagedivers as they leave her realm and collapse into a sea of outstretched hands. She beams, either clutching at the mic stand before her or barreling down on the neck of her guitar, anchored by both as kids backflip and vault themselves off the lip of the stage and into the crowd. More people in the room are singing along than not; most bodies are represented by a raised fist or two, depending on the professed dedication of those present and their familiarity with the new stuff. It takes about a song and a half for the swirling vortex of a clumsy pit to devour the congregation, and throughout it all, the bright lights and busy atmosphere don't obscure Laura's vision. This is familiar territory. These fans are familiar faces. These choruses go over just as well in Brooklyn as they do in New Haven, Boston, DC and Philly. This is an Against Me! headlining tour, just like any other.
