Even Cosplayers Do Their Part!

Yesterday, a really interesting video ended up in my Suggested List on Youtube. A girl wearing a blue wig explains to the camera that she is upset that a friend of hers was disowned by his family for coming out. I immediately assumed that this was some sort of anime fan role-playing video, which was the reason for the cosplay-looking wig and costume, which seemed juvenile at first, but the video hit on serious points nonetheless.

I'm not sure how old the poster of this video was, but by her lack of information and eloquence coupled with her passion and conviction for the subject, I'm assuming she's in her early high school years. Gonna go out out on a limb and say she's 15.

Anyway, I wanted to make sure that, if she was going to voice her opinions and try to inform others, she should provide her listeners with good science and correct information. Here was my response to her.
