They said, fake till you make it. They said, follow your dream. They said, don't take "No" for an answer.

I read the Rachel Williams account when it came out. This is the most elaborate juggling act I've ever heard of. I always wondered what became of her.

Lol. Hey, who are you to tell this courageous woman who she can and can't identify as? She is socioeconomically trans. If she claims to be an heiress, then by god, you have to accept that. To question her identity is to question her existence. This is akin to violence. Shame on you, you transphobic Nazis!
