Some people love to shut down people who talk about trans and intersex issues by saying that they’re “only 1% of the population” and thus can be ignored since they “aren’t statistically significant enough.”

- Anyone who makes over $500,000 a year
- Pacific Islanders

A number of people I know, in a variety of ways, have begun soliciting my opinion of the Gaza Strip conflict which has been occurring over the last few weeks. Though this is a topic that is fraught with peril for many diaspora Jews, I have realized it is important to me to add my voice to the discussion. My opinion is deeply steeped in my experiences as a Jewish person growing up in America, though, so to successfully discuss anything, I need to start with a brief(ish) history lesson regarding Israeli politics.
