Take a man. Any man will do. They’re all the same. That is, most of them are. At least, they try to be. And then there are those who refuse to be like everyone else. They’re no better and no worse. They’re just different. Which wouldn’t be so bad if they were ashamed to be different; only they aren’t. They’re different and they’re fine with it, which is the worst crime of all. Traitors to the species, they are. Traitors to human nature, as if they were too good for the usual fear, sloth and complacency. Traitors because they wanted more.
