    You should maybe familiarize yourself with the terms cross-dresser, transvestite, transexual, and transgendered.
    The one pictured is Tim Curry, an actor, who is dressed for a part in a movie.

    Opinions and all....
    I think that dirty looking hippie men are "not manly and truly disgusting"
    Same goes for hippie women.

    Plato thought that there was some external higher truth which you could not prove.

    Is it truth that there is a God even though I cannot prove it to you?

    Truth is only what I can prove to be true.

    It may be true that I dreamed of Jeannie last night, but there is no way I could prove that to you. So in terms of philosophy, the statement, "I dreamed of Jeannie" is neither true, nor false, but simply a statement.

    Yup, good point on the allegory. Any other good Greek/Roman to read without learning Latin? Any other recommended reading?

    Plato believed that all knowledge is innate and that learning was simply bringing this knowledge out from within your soul.

    So like when you learn something and you know it to be true, it is because you already knew the truth since birth and you are just now discovering it within you.

    Everyone, according to Plato, has perfect knowledge, and learning is simply having that knowledge "recalled".
