Joe, I appreciate your opinion, but you referring to "her" as a "she" is just silly. It's a man....with a penis..... dressing as women in western society do....He is dressing up as a woman, It's not actually a woman. He doesn't have a vag....he can't produce a baby, he doesn't have a uterus, ovaries, etc. He is a man.
That aside, him sewing his mouth shut is calling attention to himself...not the actual issue. We all sit in awe of the bself-inflicted pain he puts himself through. When we watch that video I doubt most of us feel a call of action to help the Russians, rather we sit there and wince as he puts holes in his lips.... and wonder how he's he's actually tolerating that pain.
Sorry to intrude here, but
1. Your comment is in many ways similar to how the homophobic straight people judge us gays. "you're a guy, you're supposed to be with a woman, you have p****, it can only fit into... So, calling yourself gay which technically doesn't exist is wrong, you can't be gay" something like that.
2. There's a difference between an attention seeking person & a person crying for help out of desperation.
like there's a difference between a kid crying to skip school & a kid crying because he/she is injured.
