Ah, but can the trains (and buses) run on time?

On the back of my metrocard is an MTA “Train of Thought(tm)” quote from Immanuel Kant: “Out of the crooked timber of humanity, nothing entirely straight can be built.”

Tell that to your friendly neighborhood queer community. Zing!

Anyway, isn’t “perfectly straight” more or less a human concept? The crooked is quite often functional and beautiful, if we’re going to perceive and place value on such things. (I know we are.) Lighten up, Kant!
