Don't try to be an apple if you are a banana
you will always be a second rate apple ...

Hi, have you seen this quote in Vienna already? It is located in Blindengasse 22-24 along tram line number 5.
The quote is written in big letters on a gym hall of a public school and exists since 2005 as an art project by Julie Hayward.
But I have to say, I am not very happy about the quote. It has a negative tone (don't try, second rate apple) although it carries some truth, of course.
How can you know, whether you are an apple or a banana if you have not tried?
Or more likely you are a mix between an apple and a banana? What about that? So better do not overrate this quote ;)
Always love yourself, whoever that is :)

Ah, now I get your point of view. But I saw it and understood as just be yourself!!

It's for the people they already know who they are.
I love this sentence.
I read it the first time I was in Vienna, by a case.
Now it is written in my brain.

Well, maybe I'm just a bitter trans woman over-interpreting things, but this made me cringe. A lot of transphobic narratives boil down to "you'll never be the person of the gender you feel" and this is so fucking toxic.
