“Every person has their own identity. Identities can never be collective; otherwise people would be clones, not individuals.” Who, then, has the right to say anything about how ‘appropriate’ someone’s personal form of expression is? Despite this, public figures can’t help but express their own derogatory views (presumably based on identity profiling) on the self-determination of others. Whether in opposition to the right or within our own subculture: the individual is free to be who they want to be. Ultimately, we see how the characters remain unfazed by this hostility, show their inner self to the world – and open it up to us, too.
