Remembering what it was like having some semblance of freedom.

And, freedom of religion. Or, freedom from religion, as some put it. Or, you can invent your own religion in the United States, and you can't be put into jail for it. Psych ward maybe, but that's it.

Negative liberty--the right to be left alone--although busybodies seem to have a senior moment when reminded of that one. Street harassers are fairly clueless too. Just answer their unanswerable questions with another one in return, "Do you always claim to be God's gift by violating the personal space and boundaries of complete strangers?, "Is that a fake question, or did you think it up yourself?"

People who understand usually go quietly about their own business, but yahoos too often ask offensive, intrusive, and patronizing questions out loud. This racket shames thinking people so much!

Equal treatment under the law ( haha), for instance--41 shots. Thanks to rampant prejudice, especially in places like Kansas, we can get killed just for living in our American skins:
