-I haven’t watched Survivor in years but it’s back in the news because of last night’s episode, which featured a contestant brutally outing a few team member as transgendered during the tribal council.  The outed contestant wrote a moving essay about the experience, while the outee profusely apologized and gave an interview saying “If he wants to shoot me, I’ll hand him the gun.
