Mmm, never allow yourself to be a victim, how easily achieved is that if you are a defenceless child? Apart from that, excellent advice, or is it?

Childhood afterall is where we find our roots, and I bet london to a brick that Harvey Fierstein had one that was less challenging than mine for instance, which happened to be very physically abusive in nature, against an adult foe I might add. Cheer these sort of quotes all you like, but to accept them so readily as it is claimed you should does nothing to empower you, it denies you the right to feel according to the way you should, I was brutally bashed as a child at times, and I could do what to prevent it? Oh, that\'s right, never accept myself to be a victim, if NOT a victim, then what then?

In defence of Harvey Fierstein\'s quote, it is a direct reference to his sexuality, I have just researched a bit about him and found this to be the case, under that circumstance, I consider his quote as a general practice to be followed as irrelevant, but do support it from his own personal viewpoint, he is a genuine leader within his community.

If you don\'t read too much into this quote and just take it at face value, it\'s great advice. It\'s one of my favorite quotes of all time. Thanks DS!
