I knew you were trouble
Where do you come up with this stuff? Seems so obscure and yet so interesting! He seems like a hero, beyond his times. That a white male, born in the era he was, is fighting for vulnerable groups and the rights of sexual and gender diversity is remarkable. I wish we had more supreme court justices like this in the US! Your writing really challenges assumptions about how progressive the US is and how backwards other developing countries are, in a good way. I hope it not only helps folks gain deeper appreciation of MX, your stated mission, but also look deeper at American's tendency to assume they are a role model or are more evolved as a country.
Sometimes it's hard to see, plugging along at everyday life, how much Mexico is moving toward a more progressive society. I do catch glimpses from people I know, but your investigations really bring it on home. Meanwhile, I see what's happening in the states, and shake my head as it regresses further from its once proud ideals. Still, the optimist in me says it might turn around, but I couldn't say when.
