    How Can We Avoid Creating the Very Thing We Are Fighting Against?

    How Can We Avoid Creating the Very Thing We Are Fighting Against?

    It's relatively easy to be a prolific writer or podcaster if you keep your topics general, or if you’re always on the defensive and speak to polarizing subjects. But when it comes to a thoughtful response, one that comes from a place of perfect equanimity, such wisdom is rare because of the required emotional labour and humility.

Queer self discovery

Darren, I’ve started to listen more to your podcasts recently and kudos to you.

I was and still am having hard time adjusting to the toxic masculinity at work and your pod cast have helped me a lot.

They opened up my mind In understanding the queer life and being able to See and label toxic masculinity on people who don’t accept us nor want to help us excel in life as lgbt members in or fully out.

My previous stance on this topic was to be nice and people will see the good but now I have changed it to if you don’t accept me I am not here to please you, and in some ways it has worked with people who are not fully right winged but at the same to
Ive accept I can’t change every one.

Thank you for doing what you do best write and speak so eloquently (sometimes with Freudian slips which are great comic relives and I find my self chuckle while driving )

So I’m writing this text to really motivate you more to expand your podcast and maybe idea to get more involved psych DRs as guest on your show to expand and give more advise and toolsets on how to deal with lgbt issues on day to day basis.

And That you are changing lives.

Big hugs
